March 2018 Books Bought

Since starting my blog back in August of 2008 I always want to share what books I get with you so that you can see what I will be reading and what new books there are out there and I am always looking for a place to link them so that others can see them so from now on I will be sharing my links on Tynga’s Reviews and Reading Reality. As Marlene has offered to co-host Stacking The Shelves with Tynga’s Reviews.

I am also going back to sharing my link on Mailbox Monday’s blog. This was originally hosted by Marcia but it now has its own blog which you can see by clicking on THIS.

One of the things I love about these kinds of posts is finding new books that I might not normally hear about and this month I found a few goodies that I heard about through fellow bloggers, on instagram and youtubers.

Going into 2018 I am deciding to switch this up so that I can better document what books, both physical and arcs/earcs, that are coming into my house that I have either bought, was given to me by friends/family, publishers or tour companies plus picked up from Netgalley. So this will only be a monthly post no more weekly posts going forward.
