Links I Loved This Week – 04/01/2018

Links I Loved For The Week Ending 04/01/2018 On Novels And Nonfiction

Another pretty bookish week behind me. I successfully posted twice (twice!) on my blog this week in addition to Links I Loved (pat on the back). I finished thriller The Woman In The Window by A.J. Finn – which was very good – and spent Friday in my beach tent in front of the Pacific reading Ready Player One. I followed that up by watching the movie on Friday evening, so keep your eyes peeled for my Book To Screen comparison post.

This week I want to keep up a more regular posting schedule (fingers crossed) and also start ordering books I want to have on hand to get signed during the LA Times Book Fest. I’m also hoping to finish reading The Cadaver King And The Country Dentist by Radley Balko and Tucker Carrington, The More Of Less by Joshua Becker and the audiobook of The Japanese Lover by Isabel Allende. Next on my list will be Book Of The Month pick from January 2018 Red Clocks by Leni Zumas.

But enough about my reading agenda. Without further ado, here are this week’s links…

Book Posts

  • I had a very Ready Player One focused weekend, as I mentioned, so I was very interested to read comparisons of the novel and movie on The Bandar Blog and Bookidote. They had similar opinions to mine – that the movie wasn’t bad in and of itself but that it was disappointing in how far it strayed from the novel. I’ll be posting my own comparison post later this week.

Book Reviews

  • Here are the individual book reviews I read this week that inspired me to consider reading the books they covered:

On The Blog

  • On Thursday I put up my usual monthly post on releases I’m looking forward to this month. The list for April 2018 included a pretty wide variety from history (both fiction and nonfiction), fantasy and memoirs. Between Book Of The Month and Net Galley I expect to read at least four of the titles I picked for this month, so look out for those reviews.
  • I have two posts planned for this week. First a review of The Wangs Vs The World by Jade Chang including details on the author event I attended at which I heard her speak and a giveaway of a signed hardcover copy of the book. I’m also planning a Book To Screen feature on Ready Player One by Ernest Cline for later in the week. If I can top that off with a review of the ARC I got of true crime title A False Report by T. Christian Miller and Ken Amrstrong, I’ll be super happy.

      You’re welcome Cleopatra! I was already intrigued by Dear Mrs Bird but Our House based on your review sounds super interesting as well now.

    Thanks for giving my review of Anatomy of a Miracle a shout out. It was such a great story. As always, I love these posts and am in awe that you get them done every week. I feel like my similar monthly wrap ups take forever and I only do those once a month!

      LOL it does take quite a bit of time, but I also feel it keeps me plugged into what is happening in the book blogging world. I have a system down that I think makes it a bit quicker, but I still have to look though a majority of posts of course.

    I always love monthly wrap-up time too! The amount of books some bloggers read is just mind blowing! I’m just happy if I can read 3 or more 😛
    Thanks for linking to my post! ❤

      I know right! Monthly Wrap-Up time is the best 🙂 even though I do a seasonal rather than monthly wrap-up… I skipped the Winter one because it was a slow blogging season for me but I’ll be back with a Spring Wrap-Up in June!

    Thank you for sharing my review! I can’t wait to see what you thought of the Ready Player One film, I’m undecided about going to see it actually 🙂

      Having watched it, if I could go back in time I’d skip it – except then I wouldn’t be able to make the comparison for the blog, that really would be my only reason for watching it.

    Is it acceptable to comment every week saying how much I love this post!

    Oh, I loved The Poisonwood Bible so much! Everytime I read it, all I want to do is read it cover to cover all over again, and then as soon as the youngest sister starts the game of Mother May I, I just start crying. I recommended it to my Mom and she said “this is weird” and I died a little inside.

    I loved the book ready Player One but am thinking I shouldn’t see the movie. I’m anxiously awaiting your review!

    Once again, thank you for so many great blogs to check out.
