Incoming!

I've tried to be a bit more open the first week back into accepting review requests, so we'll see how that goes. I'm determined to read what I want when I want this year, although already stumbling over a book group read (I Let You Go). I like the social aspect of book group but it's been a while since I looked forward to reading the chosen book.

I'm excited to get a few books off my most anticipated list already. My wishlist has grown considerably reading everyone else's as well as the publicists firing up exposure after the Christmas break.


For Review:

Eleanor by Jason Gurley (Harper Voyager)
All the Birds in the Sky by Charlie Jane Anders (Titan Books)
Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys (Puffin)
In the Shadows of the Mosquito Constellation by Jennifer Ellis
In a Right State by Ben Ellis
Tastes Like Fear by Sarah Hilary (Headline)*
An Extraordinary Boy by Vernon Hewitt (Clink Street)

  1. I have a similar problem with my work book club. I missed a couple of "meetings" at the end of last year and they picked quite a few books that weren't/aren't really my thing (one non-fiction about Syberia, H is for Hawk and now the latest Victoria Hislop). I enjoy going to the pub with other people who like reading but I'm finding the books a struggle. I think I'm going to give it a few months and then maybe call it a day and try to find a group that has tastes a bit closer to mine. I only tend to read one book a week so it's a bit much having a quarter of my reading chosen by a group I feel less connected to.

    1. The members of mine has changed quite a bit, we used to read a lot more things up my street. I've snuck one of my choices in this year though. If it goes back to thrillers/books where no one does anything, I might have to quit (maybe just offer to do the admin for them).

  2. Pierce Brown! I so need to get the first book in the series. Everyone says it's amazing. Enjoy all your reads, Ellie, and good luck with your book group!
