Recent Updates and Currently Reading | March 15

How is everyone doing? Are you OK? Do you need anything? My email is bookdenblog (at) gmail (dot) com if you need to reach out to me. I'm not work from home yet so things are just one day at a time for us right now.

Posted Last Week(s)

Book Review | The Boatman's Daughter by Andy Davidson ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Book Review | Inside a Marathon by Scott Fauble and Ben Rosario⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Book Review | The Festering Ones by S.H. Cooper ⭐⭐⭐⭐★
Book Review | Run to the Finish by Amanda Brooks ⭐⭐⭐★★
Book Review | Follow Me by Kathleen Barber ⭐⭐⭐★★

Finished Reading

Follow Me by Kathleen Barber Catfish Lullaby by A.C. Wise

Follow Me by Kathleen Barber - I've already posted my ⭐⭐⭐★★ review. The premise of an Instagrammer being stalked through her webcam is a terrifying one. I didn't have any trouble believing the premise, but I had a lot of trouble suspending disbelief regarding the characters themselves.

Catfish Lullaby by A.C. Wise ⭐⭐⭐⭐★ - I'm having such luck this year with books set in the swamp. I'll have a review out for this soon.

Currently Reading

The Bone Weaver's Orchard by Sarah Read The Apocalpytic Mannequin by Stephanie Wytovich

I'm currently enjoying both The Bone Weaver's Orchard by Sarah Read and The Apocalpytic Mannequin by Stephanie Wytovich.

Recent Acquisitions

The Empress of Salt and Fortune by Nghi Vo Velocities by Kathe Koja The Bone Snatcher by Charlotte Salter
Elantris by Brandon Sanderson Age of Myth by Michael J. Sullivan The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow

Many thanks to for sending me a copy of The Empress of Salt and Fortune by Nghi Vo. This will be my next read!

Meerkat Press recently sent me a copy of Velocities by Kathe Koja. I'm looking forward to diving into these stories.

After Steve Stred and I read Where the Woods End, we decided we both needed Charlotte's Salter's previous novel The Bone Snatcher. I'm looking forward to reading more of her work!

I took advantage of some audible sales and bought Elantris, Age of Myth, and The Ten Thousand Doors of January.

So what about you? Let me know what you're reading this week or leave me some links!

This post is being shared as part of Book Date's It's Monday! What Are You Reading? and Caffeinated Book Reviewer's The Sunday Post.

  1. I saw your tweet yesterday and that's so sweet. It's hard to get caught up in the hoarding drama and panic of coronavirus and forget there are actually people who do need help. Stay safe, Jen!

    1. I had people reach out to me after my tweet yesterday so I definitely wanted to mention it here, too. Stay safe, Tammy!

  2. We are doing okay here, hope you are well also! Be safe! It's a scary time for sure.

    I really need to read the The Thousand Doors and Age of Myth looks great to me too (I'm a fan of that cover!!!)

    1. I'm glad you guys are OK there. I'm looking forward to those audios. I nice TBR of fantasy. :)

  3. Who knew the perfect setting for you was a swamp? Glad you had so much reading success. I hope you and your family are safe, healthy, and have plenty of TP (I heard it's the key to survival)

  4. I already had Elantris but I got Age of Myth and Ten Thousand Doors too. I am happy to be home now for at least 3 weeks. I think things are going to be much worse before they get better.

    Stay safe and healthy! I hope you enjoy your new reads!

  6. I just finished Follow Me! I had a really good time with it. There are definitely some parts that weren't too convincing, but wow, some of the stalkerish scenes were creeeeepy!

  7. That’s a lovely offer, we are doing ok so far, a little stressed but that’s not surprising.
    Age of Myth looks like something my son would love.

    Wishing you a great reading week and good health.

  8. Enjoy your new books! I hope you have a great week!

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  9. You're so kind. We are all good here so far but I won't lie and will admit my anxiety level seems to be creeping up a tad despite efforts to keep it in check. Looks like you've got some great books to keep you company and I can't wait to see the reviews for some of these.

  10. One day at a time is the only way to go at the moment... Things are changing so fast!

    I hope you enjoy your book haul!

  11. What are UGC Approved Journals?
    Journals are the medium through which candidates publish their articles. These sources are made available through the UGC.
    If aspirants choose any private journal for their research other than that, it will not be considered as valid.
    UGC Care List
    As we have mentioned above in this blog that the UGC Approved Journals list has been replaced by UGC- CARE list so, you must have the knowledge about the UGC-CARE list to get the Journals.
    Below we have provided some basic information regarding UGC-CARE, have a look.

  12. The cover for The Apocalyptic Mannequin is freaking me out, haha.
