It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Goodreads Choice Awards 2014: Opening Round! And let me tell you, there are some fantastic books up on the ballot! I’ve reviewed several of them this year, so hop on over to my 2014 Reviews and check them out.
You may have noticed I haven’t blogged an Advance Excitement at a Glance post for November. While I like to think I planned out the following situation, I regret to say I did not. It was just a happy coincidence.
There are many great books coming out in November, and a few of them I was lucky enough to receive ARCs. Unfortunately I haven’t had the time to get around to reading them properly for review, so there will be no November ARC updates. (However, there’s a book coming out in December whose review will be posted mid-November — look out for that!). I’m also busy this month for a completely different reason: NaNoWriMo. Academic papers? Got it. Critiquing and editing creative works? No problem. Coming up with plot ideas and characters and the whole world? Fine. But actually completing a novel-length creative piece? Wow. So I’m a bit frightened, but my writer friends have rallied around me and so far I’m doing pretty well with this whole NaNoWriMo thing!
Um, book bloggers? Sign up for this now. The Broke and the Bookish is hosting a Secret Santa, and it looks like so much fun. Sign-ups end November 14th, so hurry on over and fill out your form to give to and receive bookish goodies from another book blogger this holiday season!
