- I’ve been reading Eowyn Ivey’s new book To The Bright Edge Of The World in preparation for an Author Spotlight post on her in two weeks, and I’m loving it just as much as I loved her previous novel The Snow Child. Hopewell’s Public Library Of Life posted an interesting review of The Snow Child this week and Lindasy just posted a review of To The Bright Edge Of The World on Lindsay’s Library – check them out!
- Broke and Bookish themed their Top Ten Tuesday feature this week on books you picked due to another’s recommendation or review. I didn’t participate this week but enjoyed the submissions from Reading Every Night, Hopewell’s Public Library Of Life, Vivacious Reads, Lindsay’s Library and Transported By Books. (The Top Ten Tuesday blog linkup is a great place to find new book blogs to follow).
- The Mothers by Brit Bennett came out on Tuesday. To say that it’s been highly anticipated is an understatement. I’m looking forward to reading it soon and in the meantime I featured it on my October 2016 Book Releases list. It was also mentioned at length on all three book podcast episodes I listened to this week from What Should I Read Next, All The Books and From The Front Porch.
- I added so many books to my Goodreads Want To Read due to book blog recommendations, Twitter and book podcasts. Some titles include Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel, The Year Of Living Danishly by Helen Russell, Crossing To Safety by Wallace Stegner and Sons And Daughters Of Ease And Plenty by Ramona Ausubel. I’d be happy to have more friends on Goodreads, so friend me if you get the chance!
- I received my October 2016 Book Of The Month selections on Tuesday night and was so excited to unbox them. I took this pretty picture for my instagram to celebrate!
- Latinx Heritage Month is almost over, but Naz at Read Diverse Books produced another week of amazing content for it. The themed posts he published this week include a bibliography of Wendy C. Ortiz’s work, a review of Labyrinth Lost by Zoraida Córdova (my most recent addition to my TBR list), and a guest post by Sabrina Vourvoulias – author of the dystopian novel Ink.
- On Tuesday I posted an Author Spotlight for one of my favorite authors, Terry Pratchett, including six of my favorite Discworld novels. If you’ve never read one of his novels, I suggest you start with Interesting Times for the best intro to the Discworld and its primary character Rincewind.
- I also posted two book reviews this week, one for Gayle Foreman’s new adult novel Leave Me on Sunday and one for Dinah Jefferies The Tea Planter’s Wife on Thursday. I enjoyed both books but I would recommend The Tea Planter’s Wife over Leave Me.
- For the coming week, on Monday I will be posting a Science Booklist with 8 of my favorite nonfiction titles on a range of scientific subjects, from medicine to computer science, evolution and chemistry.
- I am also planning two more book reviews for next week, one on Captain Sullenberger’s memoir Sully and the other on one of the books that are part of my 1000 Novels Series – Wilkie Collins’ The Woman In White.
