February is my birthday month. Here in Nova Scotia, it is often the worst weather month of the year, so I can be forgiven for planning a month of snuggling up with some really good books… right? I really, really, really tried to not request any ARCs in January. Despite my efforts, I ended up adding FIVE titles to my long list of review commitments. But look at these titles – you can’t blame me right?
From Edelweiss I received two titles:
From NetGalley I received three titles:
The last time I got YOU to vote for my next police procedural read, it paid off in spades! I absolutely loved “For Reasons Unknown” and now I can highly recommended it too.
The poll was SO successful for me that I tried it again in January. If you haven’t yet voted for my next police procedural read, you can find the poll to VOTE HERE.
Kindle titles I purchased from Amazon.ca
Even though I added four titles to my review commitments, I also purchased 6 Kindle titles in January. I’ve put the price I paid underneath the graphic. Just click on the cover to find out more on Goodreads. Total price for six books = $ 7.25 Cdn. NOT BAD!
TLC Blog Tours sponsored a GIVEAWAY of the novel “The Widows” by Jess Montgomery. To qualify, you had to live in either Canada or the U.S.A. Although 27 people kindly shared my book review on Twitter, only six of these lived in the qualifying countries. So the chances were 1/6. Not bad!Congratulations to Tina Woodbury! She has won a print copy of the book!
Thank-you to all the book bloggers and other followers who supported me so strongly when I was blocked on Twitter by another blogger. This community of ours is not to be taken granted. One bad experience morphed into a lot of blogger love coming my way, which worked well to warm my heart. The blogger in question never did respond to my (polite) message – so her blog will no longer be ‘liked’ or ‘tweeted’ by me. She was on my list of Top Twenty book bloggers so I used to support her faithfully… Oh well… she obviously doesn’t need me.
Hope everyone has a delightful February with lots of Valentine love thrown in for good measure. And remember…
