Links I Loved This Week – 02/11/2018

Links I Loved For The Week Ending 2/11/2018 On Novels And Nonfiction

Before I get started telling you about my week, I just wanted to mention that if anyone is planning on writing a discussion post on how to fit blogging into your life when you have a full time job, please send me a link. I’m still trying to figure it out over here.

Having said that, I’ve had a very busy and productive week on the non-blogging front, but also managed to get a post with not one, but THREE book reviews in it – so I guess blogging-wise I’m doing at least okay.

On a very eventful note, early on Wednesday morning I was able to capture another domestic rabbit abandoned in an LA park and bring it to safety (my third to date just since the fall). Capturing irresponsibly released rabbits is now my side-side-gig, after blogging. You’d be amazed at how many people think it’s perfectly fine for domestic rabbits to live outdoors and that they’ll be able to fend for themselves in an urban park with raccoons, hawks and even coyotes around. Typically they last no more than a couple days unfortunately.

But onward to happier things. Here are this week’s links…

Book Posts

  • Once again there were multiple super positive reviews from highly dependable bloggers for new release An American Marriage by Tayari Jones, including this one on Sarah’s Book Shelves and this one on Novel Visits. They’ve definitely tipped the balance towards me adding it on to my next Book Of The Month box.
  • Straciatella is my favorite flavor of gelato and I loved that The Hungry Bookworm decided to make some as her companion recipe for this week’s review of Love & Gelato.
  • A False Report by T. Christian Miller and Ken Armstrong was one of my nonfiction picks on my February 2018 Releases list, and I just got approved for a review copy on Net Galley. It was great to see this very positive review on What’s Nonfiction? since I know I’ll be reading it soon.
  • I have to say that in-person book clubs have been such a rewarding experience for me, and I think I’d get much more easily distracted from participating in an online version. Jackie at Death By Tsundoku had a great post up this week on how to find in-person book clubs in your area. Some great tips!
  • Another title I’ve been looking forward to for a while and that was on my February 2018 Releases list was As Bright As Heaven by Susan Meissner. It was one of my January 2018 Book Of The Month picks so I’ve been happy to start seeing positive reviews of it in the book world, including this one on Novel Gossip.

Book Reviews

On The Blog

  • This week I’d like to post a book list on books of love letters I want to read for Valentine’s Day and I’m a bit undecided on whether to post it on Tuesday for Top Ten Tuesday or Wednesday – but in part it’ll depend on when I actually finish writing it. I also would like to get an ARC review out there since I have so many pending.

    That’s a good idea for a discussion post. I have a full time job PLUS because I live where I work and can be called on any time I’m around, plus family obligations of course … so things get even more interesting. The good part: no commute time!

      If i didn’t have a commute that would definitely help out but living where you work always translates into more work from what I’ve seen of my entrepreneurial family lol

    Thanks for the shoutout! 🙂

    And, I was on the fence about An American Marriage too, but I’ve been hearing so many amazing things about it that I’m definitely planning to add it to BOTM next month!

    I would share ideas, but I’m too busy making notes on all the links you shared! Plus, so many new-to-me blogs I need to check out. Thank you!

    Tips on an IRL book club would be awesome because I tried to join one and it was a nightmare. Probably worth a post but I’d rather just forget it!

      I tried to start an in real life book club among my friends starting with The Goldfinch. They had 2 months to read it. No one read it. No one. We just had brunch lol

    I hope you decide to take a chance on An American Marriage; I loved it! Also, thank you for saving the defenseless rabbits; what a cruel fate for them, otherwise.
