How I Stay on Top of New Releases // Edelweiss Guide 2.0

If you’ve been around for awhile you know that each month I post a list of Anticipated Releases for the upcoming month, which are books that I have had my eye on and am hoping to read one day. A couple friends recently asked me how I keep up-to-date with upcoming releases and were excited to hear about my system for keeping track because it also helps me choose which ARCs to request from publishers as I limit myself to four per month. How do I do it? Edelweiss.

Edelweiss is a godsend and has honestly made my blogging life so much easier over the last several months! Long gone are the days of looking at upcoming releases by month on Goodreads based on number of adds (I missed so many books that didn’t generate top-200 buzz!) or looking through each publisher’s catalogs (very time consuming). Usher in the day of having a saved custom filter to easily check and save new releases of interest up to four months in advance!

How to Take & Access Notes in Audible

Hi friends! Many of you know that I am new to audiobooks but I am slowly falling in love with them. One of my biggest challenges has been taking notes while I consume them, and while I found that I could add bookmarks & notes on the app I could not for the life of me figure out how to access them! What use are my notes when I can’t find the things when it’s time to write my review?!

This quickie guide honestly came from an intense need on my part to be able to take and access notes on Audible so I can write my very overdue review for Gemina. I wasn’t able to find a source online and it took me playing around on the Desktop app to find my bookmarks… so I decided to put together a quick post on how to access them!

Announcing the Reader Voracious Novel19 Class!

Welcome to the inaugural year for a new feature here on the blog dedicated to debut authors! This year I wanted to do something to help boost new author voices and stories, and this project evolved from a few interview requests that came from Vicky @ Vicky Who Reads initiative to connect authors interested in working with book bloggers.

This originally was going to be a few author interview features on the blog, but me being as Extra as I am of course it grew into something bigger: the Novel19 Class, six amazing novels by female debut authors that I am going to scream about throughout the year! This post is announcing the Novel19 Class and sharing the book synopses with you all, and as we get closer to publication there will also be interviews with the authors as well as honest reviews (pending ARC availability). I am so excited to introduce you to the Novel19 Class, so without further adieu…
