Reads of 2017



I meant to post this earlier in the month, but things got in the way (see last post). As of December 31st,  I achieved a goal that, I probably shouldn't have worried about: The 2017 Goodreads reading challenge. I signed up for it a bit late, but decided heck, I was reading anyway. I might as well make note of it somewhere. I picked 15, then upped it to 20, then 30.


What did I read? Well, here's the list.
These aren't necessarily in chronological, by the way. 


1: Magic Burns by Ilona Andrews (audiobook)
2: Kitty Takes a Holiday by Carrie Vaughn (audiobook)
3 Whobeda's Guide to Basic Astrology by Marcha Fox
4: Staurolite by Marsha A. Moore
5: The Earl’s Unsuitable Bride by Lauren Royal & Devon Royal
6: Sell More Books With Less Social Media by Chris Syme
(which, by the way, is hopelessly outdated) 
7: Grace Unmasked by Suzanne G. Rogers
8: RULES FOR A PROPER GOVERNESS by Jennifer Ashley
9: Larken by Suzanne G. Rogers (audiobook)
10: DARK GOLD by Christine Fehaan. (audiobook. Almost DNF’d it, but I went ahead and finished it. I hoped to like it more, but I didn't. C'est la Vie)
11: A VICTORIAN GRIMOIRE by Patricia Telesco.
12: MIDNIGHT MARRIAGE by Lucinda Brant
13: SECOND SUMMER OF THE SISTERHOOD by Ann Brashares
14: The Tower’s Alchemist by Alesha Escobar
15: Shadows of the Heart by Patty G. Henderson (audiobook).
16 Faerie Killer by Emma Adams
  17How to be a Victorian by Ruth Goodman
18 Kitchen Table Tarot by Melissa Cynova
19  Fires of Vesuvius by Mary Beard
20: Ovid, the Erotic Poems
21 A Gift for Fiona by Suzanne G. Rogers
22 Tess of the D’ubervilles by Thomas Hardy 
23 Bride’s Adventure by Caroline Clemmons
24 Cupcakes, Trinkets, and Other Deadly Magic . By Meghan Ciana Doidge
25: Seduction at the Christmas Court by Jenna Jaxon (which is now only available in this boxed set)
26: Betrothal by Jenna Jaxon
27: Lament of the Last Goddess by Jolene Dawe
  28: Fairytale Christmas by Merrie Destefano
29: Buried Cities, Complete Pompeii, Olympia, Mycenae by Jennie Hall
30. Immortal Outlaw (Immortal Brotherhood, #2) by Lisa Hendrix
31. Witch of the Cards by Catherine Stein
(I think I read that one this year. Might've been last year; I forgot to date it. whoops!)
32. One of the (not-blush free) Viking titles by Bambi Lynn
33: On Writing, by Stephen King


And...there were a few more that I can't for the life of me remember the correct titles to find them again on Amazon. So, technically, I read something like closer to the 35 book range. And yes, this in between releasing the ones I put out myself last year. So, how 'bout you? How many did you read, last year?

What a few weeks. #amreading

 
Sunday Post was conceived by Kimberly at Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

 
Hi everyone. Sorry I disappeared. Didjya miss me? I had some computer problems last week--and it had to go to the fixit shop. Since it's not so easy to post here from my phone, (regardless of what the makers want you to believe!) I thought best to just work on my books and read. So that's what I did.

I didn't finish, but mind you, but got pretty darned close. If all goes well, I should be getting the draft to my beta reader before the end of the...er...week? We'll see.

I also didn't finish the books I was reading but getting closer--one's five hundred+ pages, so that's going to take some time. I may or may not DNF another, and maybe a third. That one's a classic but its convo is very repetitive and it's getting on my nerves. Which is sad, because I'd like to read one of her others. It might just be because I'm listening to it in audiobook. Oh well. So that's where I've been.

If you missed it in the past, it looks like the Clean Fantasy Reads giveaway is still going, so if you'd like to get in on a chance to win the gift card, you can do so here.

 How was your two weeks-ish?

Hi guys and gals, I hope you're doing well. We are here. Except that I had a rough day yesterday, computer virus protection went haywire and messed up the computer for a while. Grr..... Otherwise, good. I'm very nearly done with my next book and ready to shuffle it off to my editor. In the meantime, however, I have a little event thingie to share.

My Caitlin's Book of Shadows is part of the Clean Fantasy Bookcave giveaway. Yes, the tab above my book says "Preview or Sample" but I didn't know how else to list it. It's actually the full novella.


There are some other great fantasy books here, including mine (and YA fantasy author Emily Martha Sorensen, and fantasy author Jamie Marchant's, author Linda K. Hopkins [author of Bound by A Dragon and more] and quite a few others), so do check it out. You can find it here:
Enter for a chance at a $50 gift card! Then choose the books you want, sign up to hear from the authors, and start reading!

(The form is over to the right hand side of the CFR page linked above) 

Just so you know, when you get the author's book, you'll be signing up for their mailing lists. So please make SURE you want to get newsletters and updates from these authors.

 PSA over. Thanks and enjoy the books, and good luck in the giveaway!

Happy 2018 from Juli D. Revezzo's house!

Juli D. Revezzo, author of fantasy and romance


Did you survive the new year festivities? Ours, as ever, was a quiet one (well, it was until the neighbors started with their battlefield supply of fireworks!) But all in all, it was nice.

As you know, I don't do resolutions, so much as goals lists each coming year. I didn't quite make all my goals last year, due to schedule conflicts, hurricanes, hurricane cleanup, (and the usual attack of perfectionism). But my goals for this year are simpler. In fact you can see two of them here. ;)

Juli D. Revezzo, author's, diary of plans


The year Caitlin and Stacy (separately, of course) do what? You'll have to wait to find out!


There are also plans to have one (maybe two) steampunk/historical romances out in Amazon this year. Hopefully, by spring (dare I be ambitious and say maybe three? *faints*). I don't know if you'll see the Antique Magic and Celtic Stewards Chronicles titles out this year (I know, I promised the AM book last year, but I ...got stuck. There, I said it. Cait locked her jaws last year and that was that.) Oh well... This year, she's promised to talk to me. In other words, despite writing over 100k words every year, these things always take longer than I think to get to the final gate). No, I swear, it had nothing to do with the Reading Goal I set for myself last year. (That being a bucket load of books I hoped to read--some really good, some stinkers that shall not be named. Some that took some warming up to (I'm looking at you Tess). I ended up (if I remember correctly) upping it from 20. Heck, I was going to read anyway, they might as well count, right? :))


No, it wasn't any of that,  it was Caitlin. She hemmed and hahed on what should've been an easy project!!


*ahem* ;) But I will try to get at least one of them out to you before this time next year. Stay tuned and thanks for reading! 
Until later friends, here's wishing you love, light, peace, happiness and much reading goodness, in 2018!
