Today’s question:
Are there any “raved reads” –books that everyone seems to be talking about– that you’re hoping to get read this year, yourself? What books are they, and why are you hoping to read them? Is it because you want to say you’ve read it? Or, would you have chosen to read it, even if you’d discovered it yourself, and no one was raving about it?
My response:
I don’t think I have heard about any “raved reads” yet.

I have received an ARC that I was approached about and that I am anxious to read.  I read his debut book this past year, Dead of Wynter and it was fantastic.  The author is Spencer Seidel and his new novel is Lovesick.  I’m not sure if it will be considered a “raved read” but I was excited when I was asked to review his latest novel.

Plus there are some other authors that I am hoping will have new books published this year.  Will they be “raved reads”?  I don’t know.  But then I choose books that I enjoy not just because it’s the “hottest title out there”.

What abut you?  Any “raved reads”?   Or are you like me, it doesn’t matter what the IT book is, it depends if it is something I would enjoy?

Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia of A girl and her books and is now on tour.

According to Marcia, “Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.”

 

Two weeks in a row….no books in my mailbox.  It’s not like I don’t have enough books waiting for me to read.  I have a bookcase and 2 Ereaders full of books, however, I love hearing the UPS truck pulling up to my house or checking the mailbox and seeing a big envelope containing a book and ripping it open to see what   I received…but…not this week.  Oh well….I’ll just come by your place and see what you got so I can add it to my “hopefully in my lifetime tbr list

  1. At the present time, I don’t have any raved reads. I normally don’t go for popular books right away–other types seem to turn out to be gems.

    I have recently bought a few e-books, Into Pure Blue Air by John Brooke (poetry) and Through the Mirror and into Snow by Ann T. Bugg (middle school series).

    P.S. I clicked on a few of the giveaways to add to my reading list, but I keep getting “Page Not Found”. I just thought I’d let you know.

    • Thank you for stopping by. The giveaways haven’t started yet that is why you kept getting “page not found”. Please stop by on Tues, Wed and Thurs when they do so you can enter.

  2. Well, I use reviews to check out books I’m interested in all the time. I check out at least 5 reviews before diving in, usually, or more. Unless spontaneity hits and then I read whatever’s in my hand at the moment, which is how Unearthly happened this past week! 🙂 Your blog is beautiful! My Musings are here: Colorimetry

  3. I am not a huge fan of the rave reads…and don’t read according to hype.
