I have enjoyed Tom Bale‘s intense thrillers in the past, so of course I raced to Netgalley as soon as I first saw on Twitter it was available for request. I will definitely be looking forward to read this one next month! It sounds like the perfect read for Halloween October. 

And I first heard about Dear Mr Pop Star when I read Nicki’s review, and seeing that she really enjoyed reading it made me really curious about it as well. So when I was invited to read an ARC copy not long after, of course I had to give in and make an exception. I love the idea of the letters to famous pop and rock stars and them actually answering them! I will be looking forward to read this one.

Even though I wasn’t planning on requesting any new titles, of course I ended up giving in yet again. There was just something about All This I Will Give To You that caught my attention and I’ve been trying to read more translations this year, so of course I had to add it to my pile. I’m looking forward to read it soon!

Only one new NG title this week, and it was actually an older request… Babel spoke to the philologist in me and inner linguistics nerd, so I’m stoked I was approved for this copy. I’m looking forward to dive into this one! And I loved Jack Jordan’s other books, so of course I had to get a copy as soon as I saw it was currently free on Amazon. ❤

There was just something about Not A Clue that drew me in, and the blurb does sound fantastic. It’s a translation from French and this particular title isn’t on Goodreads yet, so I’ve copied the description as on Netgalley below. And of course I couldn’t resist requesting Tell Nobody as soon as I saw it; I’m SO ready for another dose of Lottie Parker! ❤

So I went a little Netgalley crazy and my NG shelf is really getting out of control… Oops? I really need to do something about this ASAP! Especially since I’ll never be able to put myself on a ban in the first place haha.

I’ve been eyeing Mortals And Immortals Of Greek Mythology for a while, and decided to give in in the end. I really like the cover and the Greek Mythology has some very interesting stories, so I’m curious to see how this book presents them. It’s not on Goodreads yet, so I’m sharing the description shown on Netgalley. The second title, Lies Between Us, I’ve been waiting for anxiously ever since I hit that request button, and this Wednesday I found out to my delight my request was actually approved! I can’t wait to read this debut by a fellow book blogger. ❤ Number three caught my eye and I couldn’t resist the angle and setting of this story. And I’ve read Kerry Wilkinson’s stories in the past and really enjoyed them, so of course I couldn’t say no to a new one. As for Toxic… It was cover love at first sight and I really liked the sound of the story as well.

I wasn’t going to request any new titles, but you know me… Zero self-control haha. The first title, Claw The System, sounded hilarious so I’m keeping my fingers crossed it will be a good one. I requested a copy of the second after reading Nicki’s review and still can’t believe my request was actually approved… It’s a different publisher since the publish date is recently in 2019, but I don’t think the content will change. The third was coverlove at first sight, and the blurb seemed to match the feeling so I couldn’t help getting a copy. The last title I actually got for a challenge next month, but I thought the title was pretty clever as well.

One of my goals this year has been to read more books of international authors, either translated or (if I can read in the language) in its original language. I like diversity in my books, not just books with a different setting, but also books that might portray a different perspective. I’ve been doing pretty well reading authors from non-Engish speaking (as a first language) countries this year, but still I couldn’t resist adding more titles. The first is actually book number two of a series I started earlier this year, both a thriller and historical fiction set during WWII. I’m curious how things will continue! Plus, it’s another German flag for my authors around the world map. I also picked up The Passion According To Carmela and added an Argentinian flag to my map… Although in a way I should read this one in Spanish instead. Oh well… The Cuban setting sounds fascinating by the way.
