My Book Haul (49)

My Book Haul

In need of a new way to showcase titles, I decided that My Book Haul seems like a good fit. I like giving books a little special attention as sometimes it can be awhile before I'm able to review them. Sad to say, but some get put on the shelf and gather a little dust before I'm able to give them the love they deserve. I've included links to Goodreads if you want more information on the books.

For Review:

Another email invitation from NetGalley that I couldn't resist. Read the excerpt and was immediately hooked! Can't wait to read this one!

Expiration Day
Expiration Day by William Campbell Powell

It is the year 2049, and humanity is on the brink of extinction….

Told in diary format, Expiration Day is the powerful and poignant story of a young girl coming of age and discovering what it means to be truly human by a talented debut novelist. (Goodreads)

  8. Alas as the diary format is one of my least favourite ways to read a story I think I'll give this one a pass. Hope you enjoy it, happy reading.

    1. Keep trying! I had to redo my profile before being accepted by my first publisher, and it seems the more you post reviews, the more you get accepted by other pubs. Good luck!
