New release challengeThis one from the Unconventional Bookworms looks suitable for me to tally my ARCs and new releases.

These have to be strictly released in 2019, not just added to my TBR.  You can sign up until 1st September.

Since I’ve got three net-galley books to read already, I need to make this a maximum challenge, even though the basic level is 1-30.

My target for 2019 is 12, or one a month.  Last year I read and reviewed 14 on Net-galley – I think I may also have had one through Librarything and one or two (Elly Griffiths!) direct on pre-order.  I’ve decided to put a maximum of 16 on it. (yeah…)


So this challenge is now complete, I did 19 and have no more new books lurking in my TBR other than Conspiracy of Magic, which I got too close to publication to review straight off.  I may sign up to do it again, with a similar level, but since the basic level is so big, it doesn’t really matter.

Anticipated books for 2020

  • A Long Petal of the Sea by Isabel Allende (pub Jan-20)
  • The Lantern Men by Elly Griffiths (pub Feb-20)


Books read and reviewed (link to reviews)

Note that the covers I have may not be the final ones for the released book, or they may differ either side of the Atlantic.
