The Monday Check In

It’s the start of a new month, and I’ve already listed my TBR but I feel as though there are going to be some surprises thrown in as well. I’ve got quite a hefty stack of library books at home, not to mention the three page list of Netgalley Reads that I desperately need to make my way through. I’ve requested only sequels so far, aside from one new release from an author I always automatically buy from no matter the book situation.

I successfully got “Once and Future” by Amy Rose Capetta & Cori McCarthy.  I’m eager to dive into this book right away, but it’ll have to wait as it’s Monday and there’s plenty of things around the house that I have to get done first. I also need to work on my WIP, and check email…the list goes on.  Goodreads also states that I’m 3 books behind schedule. *Insert heavy sigh here* I’m hoping to play catch up this week in regards to that, because I want to keep up with my Goodreads Challenge. I’m not to fussed though, I’m nearly at 60 books read out of 250 for the year, so yeah.

Submitted a short story piece to Clarkesworld Magazine! I’m still waiting for a response back, and have my fingers crossed. It’s my first time that I submitted to them, but not my first time in submitting at all. I still haven’t gotten a short story or novel published in the traditional fashion, though I’m still trying!

Upcoming Reviews:

Saving the Scot by Jessica Tretheway

New Netgalley Approvals:


I think the one that I’m most excited for out of this batch is The Lady and Her Secret Lover. Because that cover? So lovely! *fans self* Of course, all of these sound awesome, and I can’t wait to dive into them.

I’m also thinking that The Lady and Her Secret Lover will be my LGBT pick of the month book. If people are still interested in my writing about that once a week/month? Please let me know in the comments!

Aside from that, not much is going on. Waiting on responses from publishers, and catching up on reviews is pretty much all that’s been happening, though later this month is the Annual Spring Library Book Fair which I’m greatly looking forward to!

Until next time,
