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…

Friends, my bank account is WEEPING from all the books I want to get that are being released in January! Can you believe it is almost 2019?! Where has the year gone?! I am not convinced that we didn’t somehow enter a wormhole that accelerates how we perceive time without knowing it.

6 Anticipated Reads for December 2018

I cannot believe that December is just around the corner, and with it the end of 2018 draws nearer. To round out the year we have a number of releases being published, many of them next-in-series for series that I haven’t read, which has thankfully made my list for December shorter than usual. That just means my holiday list is mostly made up of backlist titles, woo hoo!

As always, if I have read the title I will include a link to my review, and clicking on the title will bring you to Goodreads.

9 Anticipated Reads for November 2018

My bank account is incredibly thankful that there aren’t a metric ton of big releases in November, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t anything interesting coming up. Here’s a list of the ten books coming out in November that I am most excited about!

You’ll notice that I don’t have many November ARCs, and that is because I have been more selective with my requests (self control? who knew?!)! I do have a couple of pre-orders, though!

Top 10 Anticipated Reads for October 2018

October is almost here and my heart is full of pumpkin spice and covered in scarves! It’s that time of the month where I start to panic at all the exciting upcoming releases; October 2018 is an amazing month for next-in-series releases (all of which I haven’t read, so you will notice that this list is devoid of Kingdom of Ash, Muse of Nightmares, and The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy.)

My book ban has officially crumbled into a pile of dust and good intentions and it is all October 2nd’s fault. I almost feel like the ban made my buy more books. So needless to say I am working on creating some kind of guidelines for buying books instead of trying to go cold turkey. Expect a post that goes more in depth on this topic soon! But for now… here are the October books that are helping my TBR Tower turn into a future murder weapon.
