Added to GoodReads – August 22nd



Getting back to blogging means finding out a bunch of new books that I want to read! I started doing this to feature not only the books that I find through various meme days (Top Ten Tuesday, WWW Wednesday – those two are especially dangerous!), but also to feature the bloggers who have recommended these books and have drawn me to them. I love the book blogging community so much!

Here are three books that are getting added to my GoodReads:

  • Down with the Shine by Kate Karyus Quinn – This sounds like a fun bit of magical realism, which I enjoy. A bunch of wishes made during a toast of moonshine somehow come true – and not in a good way. This book was recommended by Chrissi at ChrissiReads as part of her WWW Wednesday/This Week in Books post.
  • The Summer That Melted Everything by Tiffany McDaniel – A heat wave followed by a 13 year old claiming to be the devil? Now that sounds interesting! I found out about this one from Claire at Art and Soul from, you guessed it, her WWW post. She also wrote a great review where she explained that, while she didn’t love this book, it was perfect for someone like me, looking for darker, weighty reads.
  • Extracted by Tyler H. Jolley & Sherry D. Ficklin – Found this through Laura at FUOnlyKnew. Her blog is awesome! She always has giveaways, and that was the case with this one. There are still two days left to enter! She featured an excerpt from the book, which sounded really good. I like time travel books, but find that they are very hard to do right. This one sounds like things could go awry in a really good way.

Anything good added to your TBR this week? Let me know in comments!

  1. I really hope you enjoy The Summer That Melted Everything. I’m still in the minority with my not so great experience, and the writing is great 🙂
