Netgally & Edelweiss Shelves (January 2020)

I’m starting a new monthly post for my Netgalley and Edelweiss shelves. I use both sites regularly, so I always have new books to read. Both sites are great for requesting ARCs, though it can be a challenge to not overdo on the requests. Lately, I’ve been pretty good about keeping the number of ARCs to read at a manageable amount. That hasn’t always been the case.

Last year, I started reading books a week or so before they were scheduled for publication. That way, I could easily post a review close to the publication date. That system works well, and it ensures I have a decent TBR to work from each month. Prior to that, I reviewed books as I received them. For now, I’m sticking with reading and reviewing close to the publication date. There is one problem with that system though. I have books I really want to read sitting around for months before I get to them. So, I may end up going back to reviewing books as I receive them.



NEW ON MY SHELF

He Started It by Samantha Downing

He Started It by Samantha Downing
Publisher: Berkley
Expected publication date: April 28, 2020

From the twisted mind behind mega hit My Lovely Wife comes the story of a family—not unlike your own—just with a few more violent tendencies thrown in….

Beth, Portia, and Eddie Morgan haven’t all been together in years. And for very good reasons—we’ll get to those later. But when their wealthy grandfather dies and leaves a cryptic final message in his wake, the siblings and their respective partners must come together for a cross-country road trip to fulfill his final wish and—more importantly—secure their inheritance.

But time with your family can be tough. It is for everyone.

It’s even harder when you’re all keeping secrets and trying to forget a memory, a missing person, an act of revenge, the man in the black truck who won’t stop following your car—and especially when at least one of you is a killer and there’s a body in the trunk. Just to name a few reasons.

But money is a powerful motivator. It is for everyone.


The Body in the Apartment by Judi Lynn

The Body in the Apartment by Judi Lynn
Publisher: Lyrical Press
Expected publication date: March 17, 2020

The charming homes of River Bluffs, Indiana, make perfect projects for house-flipper Jazzi Zanders. Less charming is her hothead brother-in-law, who’s a bit of a fixer-upper himself.
But could he also be a murderer?

Jazzi married her gorgeous contractor Ansel—not his family. But somehow she keeps living with them. So she’s delighted to help Ansel’s brother Radley move out of their home and into his own place, in the same building as his work supervisor, Donovan. But when Donovan is shot and his apartment ransacked following an argument with Ansel and Radley’s older brother Bain, their sibling becomes a suspect—especially after his missing gun turns up as the murder weapon.

Told not to leave town by Detective Gaff, big brother moves in with . . . Jazzi and Ansel. Now Jazzi needs to prove Bain’s no killer, not only to keep him out of jail—but to get him out of their house. What was the killer looking for in Donovan’s apartment? And what will happen to the next person who gets in the way?

January 2020 TBR

Happy New Year!

Welcome to my first monthly TBR! This year I’m going to try and post monthly TBRs to keep up with my reading lists.

My TBR for this month in primarily ARCs and books on Kindle Unlimited. I’m also hoping to read a few books for reading challenges. I’m trying not to request/accept as many ARCs as I did last year, but I still have a fair amount to get through in the next few months. As for KU, I signed up again. I’m planning to only keep a subscription for a few months, then cancel it and focus on other books… like owned books.
