Looking along the books on this shelf reminds me that more than half of them were won in Goodreads giveaways before I began blogging about the books I read, so most of those have very brief reviews. However, it does mean that the ratio of read to unread books is better than the previous three shelves!
In contrast to my other bookcase, only a few of the books on this shelf are signed by the author.
The books sit behind my GoIndieNow and Book-a-holic mugs and are arranged alphabetically from Alex Campbell to James Becker.
The first four books are among those Goodreads books, that I won, read and reviewed:
Healer’s Fate by Beth Caudill is the first of the unread books, but I’m looking forward to reading this werewolf tale. I haven’t read anything by Beth Caudill yet.
Two more Goodreads wins are next in line:
These are followed by the second unread book, D.L. Gallie’s Out of Nowhere. D.L. Gallie is a new-to-me author.
Next up is Issue 9 of The Speculative Edge, from April 2013. This was signed and sent to me by Danielle Rose, who edited the fiction section. I haven’t read it… yet, but I have read four of Danielle’s books:
Angels and Alchemy, signed by the author, Donna Wolfe Gatti is another Goodreads win.
The Midnight Land by E.P. Clark, signed by the, new-to-me, author is one of those unread books that I hope to get to before too long.
Four more read books are next up as we look along the shelf:
The next couple of books are by new-to-me author, Ian Woodhead. I bought these books at my first Indie Lit Fest, in 2017. I was so nervous that I forgot to ask for them to be signed.
- The Unwashed Dead
Dreamwalker by J.D. Oswald, another author I haven’t read before, was a surprise Christmas present from my grandson, who chose it because it was in the fantasy section and had a dragon on the cover… as good a reason as any!
It’s the first book of The Ballad of Sir Benfro, and I’m looking forward to getting started.
J.S. Frankel is yet another new-to-me author and the book Catnip is still on my to-read list.
I have read the last two books on this shelf. One was sent to me by the author and the other was a Goodreads win.
