Etched in Bone by Anne Bishop The Others, #5 Publication date: March 7, 2017 e-ARC (from NetGalley and the publisher) –All opinions expressed in this review are my own.

March 2017 books on my list

March 2017 books on my list

March 2, 2017 2017, books on my list . . . 6

These are the March books on my list. 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 the books. I don’t buy all these books–since I already have way too many books to read and some of the new books are expensive. I’m trying to stick to a budget. 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. March 7… Read more »

November books on my list

November books on my list

November 4, 2016 2016, books on my list . . . 2

These are the November books on my list. Each month I keep a list of books that interest me based on the author, synopsis, genre or sometimes just the cover! My favorite genres: Mysteries–especially police procedurals; Science Fiction–especially military science fiction and space opera; Fantasy–especially urban fantasy. I don’t buy all these books since I already have lots of books to read and I feel lucky if I get 10 books read each month. But the list I make each month helps me not forget books. The Goodreads links help me keep track of the books. I hope people reading my post may find some new books to interest them… Read more »
