Writing/Reading/Review Updates!

Happy Monday, Biblionerds!


If you've been missing the book reviews here on Auggie-Talk, you're not the only one. *gestures enthusiastically to self* I have a long list of books I need to share with you, and I'm going to post that list here so you know what'll be coming up.

So, what else is new?

In the wild world of Auggie, there are a zillion wonderful and exciting things happening. Being a mum is, of course, the wildest and most wonderful. Next to that I'VE WRITTEN A BOOK.

It's true. I was there.

I know I mentioned my writing adventures before (sometime looooooong ago) and if you've been with me that long and actually remember it, have a cookie (and thank you, you're fantastic). These past several weeks have been exciting and full of new experiences . Particularly, querying.



 
#OnThePorch


More than anything, I feel extremely lucky to have discovered a very supportive and incredible writing group called On The Porch. If you're a writer, please go check them out on Twitter - #ontheporch. Tag me @Odrah so I can cover you in welcoming hugs. Or, if you're not about hugs, I can perhaps give you a curt nod.

"An Enchantment of Ravens" by Margaret Rogerson - September 26, 2017 - The synopsis of the work is so compelling and beautifully written.  I really can't wait to get my hands on this one.

"That Inevitable Victorian Thing" by E.K. Johnston  - October 3, 2017 - Alternative History centered around a young princess-to-be-queen who is looking for a way to make her own mark. Also, the genetic matching concept sounds fascinating.

"The Ship Of The Dead" by Rick Riordan - October 3, 2017 - It's Rick Riordan. It's Norse Mythology reimagined. It's Rick Riordan.

"Beasts Made Of Night" by Tochi Onyebuchi- October 31, 2017- This one sounds intense and powerful.

"Wild Beauty" by Anna Marie McLemore- October 3, 2017 -  "Stunning exploration of love, loss, and family". Sign me up!

"The Peculiar Incident on Shady Street" Lindsay Currie - October 10, 2017 - If it's a creepstastic MG ghost story, you already know I'm freaking out over it.

"The Glass Town Game" by Catberynne M. Valente -September 5, 2017 A Fantasy based off the very wonderful and tragic lives of the Bronte siblings. I'm excited about this but also nervous that the ending will be heartbreaking.

"Wicked Like a Wildfire" by Lana Popovic- August 15, 2017 - Wicked curses, magic, and sisterhood. *breathes in the awesome*

"The Library of Fates" by Aditi Khorana - July 18, 2017 - All I needed to read was " For Fans of 'The Wrath and the Dawn". *throws enthusiastically onto TBR pile*

"A Skinful of Shadows" by Frances Hardinge - October 10, 2017 - A "Dark YA Historical Fantasy" is only about the most perfect type of book to be reading during October. Skinful of Shadows = Ghost Possession all over the place.

What are you looking forward to in 2017 2.0?
