Bookish Events 2018

Bookish Events badge created by Jorie in Canva.

Fun Stuff for Your Blog via pureimaginationblog.com

Time to time, on Jorie Loves A Story, there will be bookish events featured on this blog! To help make it a bit easier to keep up with the Book Cover Reveals, Author Interviews, Author Guest Posts, Book Tour Stops, and the books received in exchange for an honest review which alight on my blog, I thought it would be best to create a page specifically to serve as a one-stop archive for easy access!

I am always striving to make Jorie Loves A Story fully cross-referenced to achieve this goal!

This is a companion page to my sidebar slideshow & promo area:

Book Blogger | Book Cheerleader ‘proudly hosting’ where you can click on the badges per blog touring company and/or publisher I regularly host on Jorie Loves A Story. You will be visiting their websites and getting to know a bit more about the stories I love to read.

*NOTE*: IF you see “Interview or Q&A”, I have submitted Questions of which have been responded back with personal answers of the person I am interviewing. Likewise, Guest Posts are given a topic to discuss of my own choosing.

audiobooks i’ve adopted via Audiobookworm Promotions for 2018

Bloggers can adopt audiobooks for review with a 90 day window to post. I am finding this is a great way to thread my way through different genres of audiobooks & meet an eclectically diverse group of narrators in the process. I also appreciate the diversions of colouring & listening to the stories themselves – as colouring & audios rock my bookish heart!  I found I also like to knit whilst I am listening to audiobooks – especially for the ‘first’ go round ahead of listening whilst reviewing them.

I announced my first Adoptable #AudioReads via #AudiobookMonth

#ChocLitSaturdays Continues!

I personally *love!* serial fiction, and as you will start to notice, my focus on ChocLit serial fiction is going to be increasing tenfold! Especially within the first selections of what I am focusing on reviewing, as The Wild One is the second in the Coorah Creek series; The Scarlet Kimono begins the Kumashiro Series whereas The Silver Locket begins the Charton Minster series set during the World War era (as I quite fancy a well-writ war drama!). Concurrently, I will be reading a second series by Ms Courtenay and the other half of her duology; as revealled below this listing of my next ChocLit reads!

Erasing my Backlogue of Reviews:

Fun Stuff for Your Blog via pureimaginationblog.com

A New Year is a second-chance to redeem the hours lost,

to reclaim the stories of #SRC2015 + #ReadingIsBeautiful + #FRC2015;

as well as a few Summer Blog Tours from BookSparks.

Read #BookishNotBookish No.6

To see why January did not pan out well for reading, read Two Years, Two Cats.

I also saw a return of my chronic migraines (March & April), which did not help my quest to read the stories. I read one story after the other, whilst sharing my thoughts on each one in turn.

Read my End of the Year Survey, 2015 to find out more.

Add in more migraines.

Plus an Unexpected Thanksgiving and 2016 went like the wind away from me!

I am grateful to a publicist I reached out to in January who helped me sort out the best way to read and review all the lovely books I selected to host on my blog. She gave me the ‘key’ which was quite simple once I saw the advice: reverse the order whilst reading Fall then Summer! #sohappy!
