Books I want to read during Fall 2017

September 5, 2017 2017, Tell Me Something Tuesday 17

Tell Me Something Tuesday is a weekly discussion post on Rainy Day Ramblings where a wide range of topics from books to blogging are discussed. I’ve decided to try some new memes this fall. I plan to write posts for this discussion meme when I have time and something to say! My books are a mix of books being published this fall and books from my TBR piles–sometimes because a new book in the series is coming out this fall! One trend I notice: lots of good books are coming in October! Girl Waits with Gun  by Amy Stewart Kopp Sisters #1 Historical Mystery I have had the first book… Read more »

For more information check out the Taking on a World of Words blog. The Three Ws are: What are you currently reading? What did you recently finish reading? What do you think you’ll read next? Currently reading The Collapsing Empire by John Scalzi (Science Fiction, Space Opera) — I’m listening to the audiobook narrated by Wil Wheaton. I’ve just started it and I’m loving it! Den of Wolves by Juliet Marillier (Fantasy) — Another book I’ve barely started, but I loved the first… Read more »

August books on my radar . . .

August books on my radar . . .

August 1, 2015 2015, Books on my radar 8

Each month I write about the books I’ve noticed and think might be good. Sometimes they’re from favorite authors and sometimes new author strikes my fancy. I don’t buy all the books (not during the month they’re released at least)–since I already have way too many books to read. I’m trying to limit the new books I buy each month to the ones I’m going to read soon. But the list I make each month helps me not forget books. The Goodreads links help me keep track of these books. And I hope people reading my post may find some new books, too! I also hope they will point me… Read more »
