Added to GoodReads is a weekly feature where I share the books I have recently discovered and give a shout out to the book bloggers who have reviewed them. Also, welcome to September, everyone! Hard to believe that fall is almost here – I can’t wait! This is my absolute favorite part of the year.
On to the books. Unfortunately, only two books today, as it has been a busy weekend and it’s a holiday for me.
- Nadine by John Steinberg – This is a book and an author that I had never heard of before. It just went on a blog tour and, according to Lana at Bibliomedico, this book was amazing. Heartbreaking and beautiful at the same time. Check out her blog tour post here for more details.
- The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow – Another new book and new author to me – yay! I always love finding those! This book comes out later this month, but Steph at Steph’s Story Space was lucky enough to get an ARC for it. Check out her review here!
Has anyone else read these and want to share? Or has anyone read an amazing review for another book? Please leave in comments!
Added to GoodReads is a weekly feature where I share books that I’ve recently discovered and the book bloggers who have shared them. Let’s see what we have this week!
- Final Girls by Riley Sager – This year, I was lucky enough to get an ARC of a Riley Sager book (Lock Every Door) and absolutely loved it. It was the first I had ever heard of this author. According to this review by Kristi at Confessions of a YA Reader, Final Girls is also amazing.
- Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier – This is one of those classics that I never got around to reading, even when I got my English degree. Then I saw this review over at Ashes Books & Bobs. I totally get where she’s coming from – reviewing classics does feel weird – but this book sounds delightful.
- Wicked Fox by Kat Cho – I love books that take ancient mythology and put it in the modern world. What, you thought these things just disappeared? Maybe they’re just good at hiding! Check out this review from Noura at The Perks of Being Noura – she highly recommended it.
- We are Blood and Thunder by Kesia Lupo – Turns out, I actually had this one on my GoodReads, but I wanted to share it anyway. Please check out this review by Nikki at Books and Lemon Squash. She says it’s a “really solid and very enjoyable read.” Sounds good to me!
That’s it for this week. Have you read a wonderful review? Please share! Have you written a review that you want people to see? Please share that too! The more books, the better!
Added to GoodReads is a weekly feature where I share the books that I have discovered and the book bloggers who are spreading the word. Here are this week’s discoveries:
- Spin the Dawn by Elizabeth Lim – To be honest, I have seen this book in lots of places around the book blogosphere, but never looked it up on GoodReads to see what the hype was about. After reading this review at Lori’s Bookshelf Reads, I am really excited to track this one down!
- The Wild Book by Juan Villoro – This book is on a blog tour right now, so be sure to check that out! This is a middle grade book from Mexico and, according to this review by The Caffeinated Reader, it was really something special. Who wouldn’t want to spend time with a quirky uncle who lives in a library?
- The Lady Rogue by Jenn Bennett – This is a historical fiction novel with a touch of magical realism, mostly centered around Vlad the Impaler, who may or may not be Dracula. Check out this review by Leelynn at Sometimes Leelynn Reads – she was lucky enough to get an ARC and really enjoyed it!
That’s it for this week! Have you found any new books or read some awesome reviews? Be sure to leave them in comments!

Added to GoodReads is a weekly feature where I share the books that I heard about last week as well as the bloggers that have shared their reviews. I’ve been trying to make more of an effort to be a better blog follower, liking and commenting more than I usually do, and it’s been a lot of fun. There are so many wonderful blogs out there!
- David Mogo, Godhunter by Suyi Davies Okungbowa – This book sounds really amazing, and very different from what I typically read. Check out this interview with the author by Stefanie @ The Magic of Wor(l)ds – it’s great!
- The Silent Ones by K.L. Slater – I know I’ve seen this book all over the place lately (and may have shared it here before, I can’t remember), but this review by The Reading Chemist really shows why this book has so much buzz.
- To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo – This is a new book and a new author for me, but it’s a fantasy about sirens, which you don’t always see. Check out this review by Cat at Pages and Plots – she loved it!
- Undying by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner – This is the second book of a duology (the first book is Unearthed). I have read other books by these two authors and enjoyed them, but I also enjoyed this review by Alison in Bookland.
- Lord of Secrets by Breanna Teintze – Another new book and author for me, which I always appreciate. I also really like this blog tour review from Asha at A Cat, A Book and A Cup of Tea. She says this might be a favorite for the year!
- Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson – I had not heard of this one, but apparently it’s been getting some hype. After reading this review by Lauren at LaLa’s Book Reviews, it sounds like that hype is well deserved!
See what happens when I blog hop more! My TBR explodes! Oh well. It was bound to happen eventually. Please check out these bloggers and also share any other reviews out there that you enjoy!
Added to GoodReads is a weekly feature where I talk about new books I have either acquired or learned about. It’s also a chance to share reviews from other bloggers in the community. It’s actually been a while since I’ve done one of these, and I’m very happy to get back to it!
- Wilder Girls by Rory Power – I’ve seen lots of people talking about this one, but if you were on the fence about reading it, check out this review by Kristi at Confessions of a YA Reader. She loved it and has found a new favorite author!
- Kingdom of Exiles by Maxym M. Martineau – Looking for a new, fun, YA fantasy series? Check this one out. Also check out this review by Bookaholic Brittany, who is so excited to find this one.
- Gods of Jade and Shadow by Silvia Moreno-Garcia – This book sounds amazing. If you like your fantasy mixed together with mythology and historical realism, this might be for you. Check out this review by Emer at A Little Haze Book Blog.
- Wanderers by Chuck Wendig – Okay, I didn’t find this one from a blog, unless you could count Chuck’s blog, Terrible Minds, which I follow. This is his new book, just came out, and everyone has been saying it’s amazing.
Have you found any new and wonderful books this week? Please share!
Hello and welcome to a new week! Finally getting back into the swing of things after vacation with a new AtG post! Added to GoodReads is a weekly feature where I share new books I’ve heard about and the bloggers who reviewed them.
- With the Fire On High by Elizabeth Acevedo – Check out the review for this book by Lori at Lori’s Bookshelf Reads. She loved the book and gave it 5 stars, thoroughly enjoying the characters and the themes it discussed.
- The Parallax by Morgan G. Farris – This is actually the third book of a series (The Chalam Faerytales) and I’m not sure if it’s the last book or not. It’s definitely the most recent, having been released last week. Check out this review over at The Book Dutchesses, as well as their links to the previous books’ reviews as well.
- Something to Live For by Richard Roper – I’m going to add this to the list of books I might not have looked at if not for seeing it reviewed by a fellow book blogger. Check out this review by Cleo at Cleopatra Loves Books. Also, according to GoodReads, it looks like it may have an alternate title, How Not to Die Alone. So keep that in mind if you go looking for it? I guess?
Anyone have some books they’d like to share or some reviews that they really liked? Please leave them in comments!
