Holiday Cheer 2018: Weeks 3 & 4

Holiday Reads 2018 (1)Its that time of year folks when I watch all the sappy Holiday romances I can find, read all the sappy Holiday romances I can find and in general just drown myself in Christmas cheer because everyone knows that’s better then dealing with reality.

Instead of individual reviews for every single book or movie I watch I’m going to do a weekly wrap up. Some will have links to the longer reviews on Twitter or Goodreads, so won’t, but let’s keep this fun without too many rules huh?

So who was ALA Annual in New Orleans this year? Raise a hand (or Daiqiuri glass!)

Tasch and I, along with our friends Oggie and Jenn, made a vacation of it and boy howdy was it fun. Good food, good walking, and good books – really what more do you need?

I went into ALA Annual as I usually do – with a plan in hand and backups as necessary. Oh I did my research and I poked at every title or author that sounded evenly remotely interesting to me, but as always there are more books in the world being published then even I can keep track of.

Here is a list of 10 titles I was thrilled to learn more about and pick up a copy of!

Revisiting: My Top Anticipated Books for 2017

benwyatt-humanstories
Ben is still my patronus. I mean it. And I think he’d agree that’s appropriate.

Back at the end of 2016 I did a slew of posts to discuss what books I was most anticipating for 2017. I’ll be doing another bunch of posts in December to discuss my 2018 anticipated books, but let’s look back at my 2017 books.

Top 8 Reads of 2016

top-8

That’s right I said eight readers. Why 8? Because to be honest while I read quite a few really good books this year some stood out more. When making this list those that stood out more only numbered to 8. These are books (or graphic novels) that I have crisp clear memories of. Stuff I keep telling everyone to read.  Tell me did you read any?
