What you might have missed on my blog

Books I have added

*hangs head in shame* I don’t know what happened with this week but OH MY, between the tempting emails about how this one  is from the same author tempting me and just seeing books in a series that I have already read tempting me I failed really big time with the whole try not to get books from netgalley or edelweiss…sighs. Seems like the more I say I am not going to the more books I end up with. Book addiction. 🙂 The bright side most of them don’t have to be reviewed until next year. 🙂

      Yeah, I was a bit proud of myself…though one was a 32 page graphic novel…lol. I really enjoyed the first one in this series even though it’s contemporary romance and I don’t read a lot of those, but put it in Scotland and I am there…lol. 🙂 Especially on audio she does the accent. 🙂

    • Stormi

      I did good, but one was a short graphic…lol. It is so hard to resist the shinies!!! 🙂

    Cloak and Dagger sounds like a challenge I might do, I thought about that one last year. Should have too, since I read a fair amount of mysteries LOL.

    I was curious about Powerless, hope that was good. I’ll kee an eye out for your review.

    Have a nice week.

      I do hope you will join us cause you did read some great mystery I seen them on your blog. 🙂 Powerless was okay but not exactly what I was expecting. I sort of expected more survival and less political stuff.

    • Stormi

      You guessed right! 🙂 I hope it’s good too it sounds so interesting. I am getting a lot of books for next year already…I so have to cut back so I hope I can. You did great with the empty haul. 🙂

      I hope you will join our Cloak and Dagger challenge then, I am in such a mystery mood of late. 🙂

    • Stormi

      I do hope you will join, it’s one I am sure I can finish as I have already acquired a lot of books for 2016 already…goodness!

    • Stormi

      EW has cool graphic novels…Dark Horse publishing so far has been my favorite to get them from. 🙂

  2. Kathy

    Wow that is a lot of great books you got this week. I’m looking away so I’m not tempted lol. I’ll be joining the New Release Challenge again. I went past my goal so I’ll increase it for next year. Have a great week!

    • Stormi

      Yes, look away or it will suck you in. That is my problem I don’t look away enough…lol. Glad to hear you will be joining the New Release Challenge. I had to up my goal for next year too as I read way more than I realized..lol.

  3. Deborah

    Oh I like the idea of a New Release reading challenge. Mostly I read new releases so that would be okay. I’ll have to check out the requirements!!!

    I actually missed Arlidge’s The Doll House (though have read the rest) so am keen to see what you think of it!

    Deborah recently posted: Weekly check in
    • Stormi

      Yeah, a new release challenge is pretty easy to accomplish for those who read a lot of them. 🙂

    • Stormi

      Well, three of them come from Kathy who post on my blog but most of the other stuff is me..lol. I do a lot of blogging ahead. 🙂

  4. A Voracious Reader

    I really shouldn’t have, but I went to NetGalley and requested Quiet Neighbors. lol Did those graphic novels come from NetGalley also? I can’t get ADE to open books with ACSM so I’m giving up on them. It’s very frustrating. Grrrr!

    • Stormi

      Quiet Neighbors just looks so good so I hope it is! 🙂 The Graphics I got were from Edelweiss and I didn’t have any problems opening them. They are from Dark Horse Publishing. I did have problems when I tried opening The Green River Killer and the publishers were really cool about sending me a download to my email. 🙂

    • Stormi

      Yes I did…lol. I get ones from the publisher though too saying…you liked this one..well the author has a new one coming out on netgalley now…it’s hard to resist…lol.

  5. Charlie @ Girl of 1000 Wonders

    It’s COYER time already? Holy smacks! I like reading my crime novels in October. I don’t know why, so I’m sorry I’m not joining you guys. I have moved on to Christmas reads and other random books I have for reviews.

  6. Lorna

    You must read really fast! I am not familiar with any of your books although I think I have seen something about Pop Goes the Weasel. Enjoy your books and your week!
