Bookish Happenings: New Books & Cover Contest Summary

In the last two weeks, I’ve done more reading than I have in a long while. I must admit, I am proud of myself and hope to keep up the pace. Yesterday, I told my friends I might be biting off more than I can chew this week with my reading goal. I aim to read 1,087 pages of material (four books). I really need to get this done but so far, I’ve only read close to four hundred pages. I won’t let that get me down and I plan to keep a positive attitude that I can meet my goal.

There are three books I recently acquired on NetGalley and I would like to get to those by the end of this month: Everything Here is Beautiful by Mira T. Lee, Points North by Howard Frank Mosher and Unraveling Oliver by Liz Nugent. All three books are ARC’s (Advance Readers Copy).


The last two months have been a lot of fun for indieBRAG and its Honorees. indieBRAG held their 2017 Cover Contest and had a great turn out of votes. Johnny Big Ears by John Paul Padilla is the overall winner of the contest. I big congratulation to him and the designer of his cover. There will be a few featured posts of his book and himself coming up soon. Be sure to be on the lookout for it!
