It would seem that spring has finally arrived in Nova Scotia!
I sincerely hope that everyone had a good Easter.
In April I was thrilled to be invited to read and review a new novel from Tony Black!
Over the past month I have received EIGHT new titles from NetGalley!
Despite my best intentions to not request from NetGalley until my review queue is under control (130 titles), I was VERY WEAK this month. A few publishers invited me to read their novels and they provided NetGalley widgets – then, when logging on to NetGalley to download those novels with their widgets I inadvertently saw a few more that I just had to have… Like I said, WEAK. It would seem that the elusive 80% badge is even more elusive than ever before. The good news? My 200 reviews badge is on the horizon.
Why I chose this one? I follow Barbara Coppertwaite‘s blog and have heard much praise for her work from my fellow bookbloggers. Just HAD to try one of her novels.
Why I chose this one? I read the blurb and just knew it was for me!
Why I chose this one? Duh! Rochester – Jane Eyre is my favorite classic novel! Also, the publisher invited me to review it.
Why I chose this one? The stunning cover and even more stunning description.
Why I chose this one? The setting/title of Malagash. Malagash is a small community in the province where I live. Our summer cottage is a brief half hour’s drive away…
Why I chose this one? I guess I was in the mood for some historical fiction that day. This one sounds like a great read!
That’s TEN more review commitments!
and I also purchased the following six Kindle books (prices listed under bookcover):
Don’t know why I keep purchasing books as I have SO MANY to read already! Don’t know when I’ll get around to reading these…. It is a sickness! LOL My excuse? They were bargains!
Fictionophile’s readership continues to grow!
During the month of April an additional 81 people have begun following this blog! That makes a total of 1,489 followers altogether! I appreciate the support and I’m grateful for all your blog comments. Thanks everyone!
So…. that’s me. May all planned out. But you know what they say about the best laid plans. LOL Happy reading!
