Can’t Wait Wednesday: Last Dragon Standing by Rachel Aaron

Can’t Wait Wednesday: Last Dragon Standing by Rachel Aaron

February 7, 2018 2018, Can't Wait Wednesday 13

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings. This is a weekly meme to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. The books I choose aren’t released yet and usually won’t be published for at least two or three months. I love finding out about books which will publish in future months and I like to share my excitement about the books. I also like to find out about new books on other people’s blogs and hope they’ll sometimes find something to look forward to on my blog. I’m excited to read . . .

February 2018 books on my list

February 2, 2018 2018, books on my list . . . 6

I keep a list of all the books I might want to read and add to it as the year goes on. As each month comes along I create a list on my blog for others and for me to keep track of as the months go by.

I hope people reading my post may find some new books to read. I also hope these people will point me toward books I missed. Not too many books this month, but… Read more »
