Links I Loved This Week – 03/11/2018

Links I Loved This Week On Novels And Nonfiction

I’ve had an exceptionally productive weekend – don’t you just love the feeling of that? I’m all set up for this coming week and even stopped by Eataly this evening to pick up some real italian groceries for the week, including lots of my favorite – prosciutto cotto. I also have a great book event to look forward to on Friday with author Jade Chang of The Wangs Vs. The World, and hope to get an extra signed copy of her book to give away to one of my readers.

Since I skipped Links I Loved last week due to an impromptu Oscars get-together, you’ll find links for both this past week and the week before in today’s post. I’m hoping to pick up my posting frequency on my own blog asap, and this week I’ll be featuring a guest post from Megan at The Hungry Bookworm on Thursday (more details on that below).

Without further ado, here are this week’s links…

10 March 2018 Book Releases I’m Excited About

March 2018 Book Releases On Novels And NonfictionEvery 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.

This month I definitely did not have a hard time picking ten amazing new releases, and there’s something for every taste. From historical fiction novels, to thrillers, to inspiring memoirs and even uncharacteristically a little YA/fantasy.

I’m already in possession (or soon to be in possession) of two of these titles and can’t wait to share my reviews with you. Hope you also find some worthwhile picks for your TBR!

Links I Loved This Week – 02/25/2018

Links I Loved This Week On Novels And Nonfiction

almost had Links I Loved up on Sunday as it’s supposed to be this week, but then I ended up having a wonderful relaxing day with friends buying scented candles and having brunch at a trendy place in the Arts District here in LA instead. I think that’s a fair trade.

I’m counting my small victories along the way, like the fact I posted two ARC reviews over the past two weeks and I’ve been absolutely loving my latest Book Of The Month read – The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver – so even if I’m not meeting all my blogging goals right on target at the moment, I’m enjoying my reading life regardless.

And I have all of your amazing posts to feed my review hunger of course! Here are this week’s links…

Just Read: Review Of The Stowaway By Laurie Gwen Shapiro

The Stowaway Book Review On Novels And Nonfiction

I included The Stowaway in my list of releases I was looking forward to for December 2017 and January 2018, and was therefore ecstatic to get access to a review copy of it through Net Galley.

I read it during my trip home for the holidays to Milan, and it made for the perfect wintry read. It’s relatively short, but the author does a really great job at keeping the right balance of adventure and history as she tells the incredible story of young stowaway Billy and his daring attempts to make it to Antarctica. Definitely a good one to read under a cozy blanket with a mug of cocoa!

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…

Links I Loved For The Week Ending 02/04/2018

Hope everyone had a good week – both life-wise and blogging-wise. I accomplished all my primary objective in terms of blogging but my posting schedule was still a bit all over the place (as demonstrated by this Links I Loved post up on a Monday morning).

Slowly but surely I’m adjusting my blogging schedule though and figuring out what snippets of time I can dedicate to Novels And Nonfiction now that I no longer have as much time to blog on weekday mornings.

This week was a busy one in the blogging world, between January 2018 Wrap-Ups, lots of February 2018 TBR lists (not featured but keep your eyes peeled for them) and of course Book Of The Month‘s announcement of their February 2018 releases.

Without further ado, here are this week’s links…
