Not much reading done this weekend, but I did take an hour to grab a bath and finish this. It's definitely different. Monotonous at times but pretty good! I have other books by this author I haven't read but I will now!
Also, you might remember a while back my bf thought it would be hilarious to buy me bath bombs with Lego men inside? Turns out, they smell pretty damn good so I'm slowly starting an army of #BathBombLegoMen in my bathroom 😂😂

Hey everybody! This week we wanted to make a fun, silly challenge for you guys! For a #NewToYou book or author, simply guess the plot based on the cover (no reading the back cover description). Then read the book and see if you were correct. That's it! Simple and fun 😁

This is great if you are participating in the #NetgalleyReadathon .

Don't forget to post and tag us @Clwojick @RadicalReader

wanderinglynn I don‘t do Net Galley, so none for me. 😉 2mo
JazzFeathers I am in fact reading a #NewToMe author, Simon Beaufort. It's the second book in his mystery series set in 1880s London. Sounds nice and easy to read so far. 2mo

TheReadingMermaid @Insightsintobooks hey there sweetie, the read-a-thon is actually is beginning today! You can jump in at any time 😊 2mo
SaturnDoo @wanderinglynn I don't either but I just asked @Clwojick on her post about this and she suggested maybe we just set a # of hrs reading this weekend. I'm going to include the scavenger hunt since I haven't started it yet. ☺ 2mo
TheReadingMermaid @SaturnDoo that's a perfect idea!!! 2mo
wanderinglynn @SaturnDoo Thanks! 👍🏻😀 2mo
SaturnDoo @TheReadingMermaid thanks. ❤❤❤ I need some sort of motivation/goal. I'm way behind a need to get caught up 🤣😂 on some reading 2mo
SaturnDoo @wanderinglynn you're welcome 😊 good luck on the goal you choose/set. 2mo
TheReadingMermaid @SaturnDoo you are most welcome darlin! We all need a little bit of motivation and support sometimes 😉 2mo

“Are you there Satan? It‘s me, Madison.”

So far, I am absolutely loving this book. I have no idea how I have never read any of his books before now... especially considering I‘ve have 4 of them on my bookshelf for years 😅#NewToYou #Palahniuk #MayMadness

@TheReadingMermaid @RadicalReader

Mynameisacolour This is what got me hooked on Chuck P. ! Doomed is good too! 2mo

So how do you guys find/choose #NewToYou books and authors?

Do you choose books at stores based on their cover art? Do you get the inside scoop from friends and family or perhaps a podcast? Or maybe like me you have a Netgalley account that helps you find new authors and books?

Or do you simply stick to the authors and books that you know and love?
Answer below ⬇️⬇️⬇️

jb72 Pretty much all of the above. I have my go to SK friend, and she recommends some good books too. If I‘m in a store I browse until something looks good. I used to have one friend whose recommendations I stayed away from. 😂 (think 50 Shades). For me, it really depends on my mood and what‘s going on and who may be with me at the time. 2mo
RadicalReader I googled authors that are similar to_____ then I read the plot of the books and dove right into them 2mo
julesG I have Litsy! Before Litsy I used Goodreads recommendations, and before that I just did what @RadicalReader did. Way before that I'd just browse the library and/or bookshop shelves. Apart from that I can fall for covers, and from time to time friends recommend books to me (unfortunately, they often get it wrong). 2mo

rjsthumbelina I watch a lot of booktube and look on Litsy! Plus I work one shift a week at a Barnes & Noble, and I always keep up with new releases/recommendations there as well. Plus I get a ton of physical ARCs from working there! 2mo
RadicalReader @rjsthumbelina that‘s the best part about working with books is the perks that go alongside them 2mo
RadicalReader @julesG I love Litsy too so many wonderful books to discover. For the times when I am between library visits I couldn‘t be happier to have some wonderful thing to read 2mo
Shvonne Book podcasts, bookish websites, social media, and old fashioned browsing the bookstore. 2mo
PirateJenny Most often through work. 2mo
TheReadingMermaid @PirateJenny interesting, like through coworkers? 2mo
MallloCup Definitely authors I love.... But I'm a sucker for an attention grabbing title 2mo
PirateJenny @TheReadingMermaid and general work news and things I work on. I work for Penguin Random House. 😊 2mo
BooknerdsLife I like funding new books through going to book stores and my local library. Book covers definitely get my attention but I like to at least Google about the book on Goodreads before buying it. 🤗 2mo
RadicalReader @MallloCup love how titles can just grab you 2mo
RadicalReader @PirateJenny what a wonderful place to work the Happiest Place on Earth the Disneyland for bookworms 2mo
PirateJenny @RadicalReader close to it! 1mo
