Q:   Do you use other sources for ARCs besides NetGalley?
A: I also use Edelweiss or I get emails from authors, publicists and publishers. With the amount of books that I have to be read that I own already is atrocious though and I very seldom request or want a book.

**This is a weekly meme.


  1. I'm more familiar with Nghi Vo's work through The Singing Hills Cycle, but What The Dead Know looks interesting as well. Have a great weekend!

  2. I should probably take on fewer ARCs, but it is so hard to say no to a free book of something that has caught your attention.

    1. I also have a problem saying no to free books, or cheap reads. Like yesterday I bought 2 books on Amazon that were on my wish list, but they were only $1.99, so I couldn't resist!!!!

  3. Intriguing beginning, but I am not so sure about the story when I read page 56.

  4. This sounds good. The excerpts sound interesting. Hope you have a great weekend!

  5. Good morning Freda,
    Mine is for BBH ~ I use Edelweiss, BookSirens and Booksprout. I am not sure where else to get them. Maybe because I am too lazy to research it!🤣

    Have a fantastic weekend honey 😉

    1. I've not heard of BookSirens or Booksprout before.... maybe I will check them out. Thank you.

  6. I need to read more short stories. This one sounds good! I've been wanting to try something by Nghi Vo. I use NetGalley and Edelweiss too. Thank you for hosting and have a great weekend!

  7. I like the opening, but the teaser makes it sound too scary for me! Thanks for adding my link!

  8. I request way too many books on Netgalley, and lack good organizational skills which compounds the problems from my overindulgence.

    I hope you have a great weekend.

    Here's my BBH if you care to visit --

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
