May #TBR – Audiobooks, Indie Authors, Blog Tours, and NetGalley

Is All This Sheltering-in-Place Getting to Me?

I may have gone a bit overboard on scheduling book reviews and failing to leave sufficient time to get my gardens growing. Many of these looked too good to pass up, however, and as always, a wide variety of genres; cozies, literary fiction, legal thrillers, military adventures. I already started the month off with a ghost story, Forgiveness Falls, if you missed it.

May audiobooks, author requests, and Blog Tours

AudiobooksOMG–have you heard or read about Where the Crawdad’s Sing? This audiobook is phenomenal–beyond gripping. Good thing for earbuds, I listened to it into the night. Absolutely amazing, a #mustread or better yet, the audiobook. The narrator plunks you in the middle of the marsh with Kya. My review tomorrow, Tuesday, May 5th. Audible review of Murder by Perfection by Lauren Carr for iRead Book Tours.

Author Requests:

Out of the Red and into the Black (a CE review)

Curse of the Ninth

Blog Tours:

Kelegeen (Great Escapes)

Killing Time (NetGalley-Great Escapes)

I have high hopes for this schedule. Have you read any of these? Does one of them grab you? Can you guess which one is being made into a movie?

Are Blog Tours On Their Way Out?

Choices and Illusions by Eldon TaylorI reviewed a book earlier this month called “Choices and Illusions” by Eldon Taylor that was part of a book blog tour that began the end of this month. I’ve been curious about book tours anyway and took the plunge as there were several incentives, and don’t we all love freebies!

While the book was not quite the new revelation I expected, the blog tour was definitely the introduction I’d been looking for. Of course, there are two sides to blog tours:

  1. Those who host
  2. Those looking for hosts

Blog tourI’m interested in both sides as I wanted to look into another promo for one of my grandfather’s books and also with the book reviews I’ve been doing lately thought it would be no problem to continue to accept other authors looking for willing book blog hosts.

Blog tours will be the subject of my blog post this Sunday, when I expect to complete my research into the subject and hopefully bring you information you may have been looking for as well. Stay tuned…see you back here on Sunday! ©2017 Virginia Williams Resource Box
