10 February 2018 Book Releases I’m Excited About

February 2018 Book Releases On Novels And Nonfiction

Every month, I pick 5 nonfiction and 5 fiction books being released that month that sound like good reads to me, based on my personal preference in topics and genres, as well as advance reviews on Goodreads and Amazon.

Some themes in the titles I picked for this month include feminism, crime, historical fiction and identity. It’s always interesting how book releases that are popular in any given month sometimes seem to clump together easily by topic, in response to what is going on in society and what readers are therefore most interested in.

Two of the books are Book Of The Month picks for this month (they really hit it out of the park with their selections for February 2018), and many are also currently available on Net Galley, so there should be lots of options for your TBR list!

I’ve had a very busy and VERY bookish week (hence why this post is coming out so much later than usual). It included not one but TWO really exciting author events – a conversation between Zadie Smith and Michael Chabon at UCLA on Thursday evening and a talk by Isabelle Allende at the Skirball Center on Friday evening.

I came away with 3 amazing signed books and such a better understanding of the three authors and their writing process. Look out for my posts on each event either this week or next! And if you’re a book blogger and are based in the LA area, you can find out about more similar author events like the ones I attended this week by joining my Los Angeles Book Bloggers group on Facebook.

I also wanted to announce that the winner of the Winter Reading Giveaway I hosted with Jackie at Death By Tsundoku was Rachel at Fortified By Books. Congratulations Rachel! I’ll be sending out your prize by the end of the week.

10 December And January 2017/2018 Book Releases I’m Excited About

December And January 2017 Book Releases On Novels And Nonfiction

Every month, I pick 5 nonfiction and 5 fiction books being released that month that sound like good reads to me, based on my personal preference in topics and genres, as well as advance reviews on Goodreads and Amazon.

I decided to combine my December and January release posts because sometimes these two months are a bit quieter on the publishing side, and also because I will be in Milan for the first week of January and taking a blogging break, so my post for January would have been delayed.

There should be plenty of TBR fodder here for you – stories of unbelievable journies on the nonfiction side and historical fiction and magical realism on the fiction side. Hopefully you find something here that catches your eye!

What is it about a long weekend that makes you build unrealistic dreams of getting much more done than there is time for? I definitely fell in that trap again this weekend, and though I did a lot, I didn’t even skim the surface of what I was hoping to accomplish. I’m really satisfied with having had time to relax and catch up with friends though.

Today is the last day of the Thanksgiving Readathon I’m hosting with Jackie at Death By Tsundoku and you’re still in time to join if you want to do a mini-readathon of your own! Make sure to also enter the Winter Reading Giveaway, which closes Tuesday at midnight. I didn’t realize that I would be starting my readathon with two 600-page books, so though I’ve read over 800 pages, I don’t have much to show for it in terms of book numbers. Ah well!

I’m looking forward to a particularly busy week! I’m attending not one but TWO bookish events this week, one to see Zadie Smith and Michael Chabon speak and the other to see Isabelle Allende. I’ve been sharing info on events like these on the Los Angeles Book Bloggers group I started on facebook, so if you’re based in LA and want to keep up with bookish events in the area, make sure to join!

Thanksgiving week is finally here! Raise your hand if, like me, you can’t wait to have 4 full days of vacation in which to rest, relax and the third and most important R – READ.

Unlike many of you who have family in the United States to catch up with during Thanksgiving, I typically tag on to a friend’s Thanksgiving meal on the day of, but the rest of the weekend is blissfully free. It’s my chance to reset before the start of the holidays, get a start on any big projects I’ve been putting off at home (filing), and this year also hopefully get ahead on my blog posts.

And of course it’s also the week of the #ThanksgivingReadathon I’m hosting with my blogging friend Jackie at Death By Tsundoku. You’ll see our kick-off posts for the readathon up tomorrow (including the link to enter our amazing Winter Reading Giveaway) and we’re hoping to see many of you create your own Sign-Up posts for the readathon between this Monday and Wednesday. You’re free to also just participate on social media. The key here is to only do what you can handle while having an amazing holiday week!

And now without further ado, onwards to this week’s links!

Daylight Savings hit me HARD this week, and my usual intentions to have all my blog posts for the week (minus Links I Loved of course) written the weekend before fell through again. One day, I’m telling you. One day I’ll get there 😉

I’m really excited to have more than usual blogging and reading time during Thanksgiving week (and also resting and relaxing time as well). Really looking forward to the Thanksgiving Readathon as well, for which there will soon be more information (look out for an official announcement post on Wednesday).

I’ve been a little under the weather this weekend, so if you need me today, I’ll be under my comforter with Andy Weir’s The Martian. Onward to this week’s links!
