I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

Annette Mills said...

BEtween Shades of Grey is awesome. Too bad it gets confused with that other book!! Great stuff, enjoy! My STS

Hi Gina,

You have a great haul this week and I quite like the sound of 'Grave Consequences', although I am not sure that I would read all the books this author has written.

You sound about as bad as me at searching out a 'freebie' or a bargain and just having to have it ... I am seriously trying to be good and only take from NetGalley, the books which I know I would enjoy and are from my favourite genres ... I just know that I am never going to live long enough to read all the physical books I own, let alone the often not counted download 'extras'!!

Thanks for hosting this month and I hope that you enjoy all the books you read this week.

Thanks for being an awesome MM host! You picked up some great looking books. I loved Between Shades of Gray, and have heard good things about A Tale Dark & Grimm. Enjoy :)

Mary (Bookfan) said...

Nice variety! The Christmas book looks cute.

Shoshanah said...

I've heard great things about Between Shades of Gray. And actually read an article last year about how the author was getting tons of hype just because it was so close in name to 50 Shades. Supposedly she had people show up to her readings confused because it wasn't the book they expected. Or had parents complain about their kids reading her book, again not realizing the different. And thanks for hosting this month!

Gilion at Rose City Reader said...

Enjoy all your books!

Laura at Library of Clean Reads said...

I've been wanting to read Between Shades of Gray ever since I saw a clip of the author talking about this book that brought me to tears. Enjoy your new books!

Martha Eskuchen said...

You have several books here that look very good! Happy reading!

Between Shades of Gray is so good! Be sure to have a box of tissues handy when you read it.

Elizabeth said...

I haven't heard of any of these books, but A Tale Dark & Grimm looks like a good Halloween Month book.

ENJOY all your books, and thanks for being this month's host.
