So I had an idea. My GoodReads to-be-read list is fairly large (way over 100 books) and, to be honest, I can never remember where I heard of most of these. Some I found through other book bloggers. Some have been recommended to me by friends. I’ve decided that instead of trying to figure out where all these books came from, I will keep track using a blog post. It won’t be every week, just whenever I have added a few books. Here’s what I’ve found this week.
- The Ghost Bride by Yangsze Choo – Do you remember when I was doing tasks for the Seasonal Reading Challenge Group? This is a book they will be reading together starting in June. There are a couple of other books as well, but this one sounded the most interesting.
- The Immortal Circus: Act 1 by A.R. Kahler – This one was recommended to me by a co-worker. He saw me reading My Soul to Take at lunchtime one day and asked if I had read this one. Which I hadn’t. Once I saw that it had fairies in it, you know I was on board!
- Nowhere But Here by Katie McGarry – I saw this book reviewed on another blog that I follow, Chrissi Reads. She is a big fan of this author and really enjoyed this book. It’s different from what I usually read, so I thought I’d give it a go.
- Sara’s Game by Ernie Lindsey – I got this one off of BookBub (if you’ve never heard of BookBub, go check it out now – you’ll thank me later). It’s also a bit different from what I usually pick up, but it looked like a very gripping story.
Have you found any new books this week?

This is a good idea! At the beginning of the year I made it a goal to keep track of the same thing, but I used an excel spreadsheet and I don’t think I’ve updated it since January. This is a good way to keep accountable about it! And gives a nice shout out to other bloggers.
There are so many books I’ve found through my fellow bloggers, but I always forget who recommended what (mostly because I have way too many books I’m trying to keep track of). This way sounded better – and shoutouts are fun. 🙂
I think this means that you have a much better managed to read list than me. I’ve been trying to work on moving ones that caught my eye but are less likely to an on my radar list. This is a great idea. It also means people like me get a better idea of what you are eyeballing!
And I eyeball quite a lot. I’ll never read them all. 🙂
