Links I Loved This Week – 10/21/2016
- Get Booked is a podcast by Book Riot in which two expert book-loving hosts recommend books based on viewer requests that are sent in via email in advance. I love the podcast and listen to it every week, religiously, although it has the unfortunate effect of continuously adding to my TBR list. This article lists the 11 Most Recommended Books On The Podcast This Year, so get those TBR lists ready.
- Naz on Read Diverse Books completed his series of posts for Latinx Heritage Month and I was so lucky as to win the linkup giveaway for reviews of books by Latinx authors that he ran for the occasion. You can read a summary of all the great posts he wrote and hosted during the month here. I really wanted to thank him for all the work he puts into keeping us all more aware of continuing to strive to read diversely. Thanks Naz!
- Keeper of Pages has been posting reviews of the spooky books she’s reading for her participation in the Halloween Read-A-Thon, including reviews of Normal by Graeme Cameron and Lost in The Light by Mary Castillo. If you’re looking for scary reads, head over there for some recommendations.
- I’m a sucker for bookstore tours, and am thinking of planning my own around Los Angeles at some point in the future. Modern Mrs. Darcy shared her bookstore tour of New York on her blog this week and it was a fun read.
- I also put up two new book reviews this week. On Tuesday I published a review for Sully by Chesley B., III Sullenberger and Jeffrey Zaslow, and on Thursday I published a review as part of my 1000 Novels Series for mystery classic The Woman In White, by Wilkie Collins.
- I’m planning a new 1000 Novels Series review next week as well for The Tenant Of Wildfell Hall by Anne Brontë, to be published on Thursday.
- I hope to be able to add a second individual book review on the blog next week on Tuesday, and match this week’s output, but it all depends on how much reading I get to this weekend. Wish me luck as I’m going to The Wizarding World Of Harry Potter on Saturday for an early bday present to myself and then doing the AIDS Walk on Sunday – which won’t leave as much time as usual for leisurely reading.
