Wicked happy about these awesomely brilliant New Books, Library Finds, & Sweet Next Reads! Winter 2014 - December 2015!


I am a curator of lists - most of the time I am curating the lists and keeping them stored in my memory, for such a time to sort through which author & story I want to soak into next, and therefore, continue on my bookish quest of discovering illuminating story-lines and the writers who enchant my heart with their craft for telling a story which bewitches me wholly and true. I love wordsmiths who create realised worlds, and full-bodied characters full of depth, heart, and spirit. I like to dig into narratives that deeply etch their emotional hearts and convicting stories into bits and bobbles of my own essence, as much as I like to read lighter reads which are a pure lift of joy to consume! I love wandering around the literary worlds (i.e. genres & categories of thematic), seeking to further explore what I have not yet tethered my eyes and allowed myself the pleasure of being transported into a new time, place, and world.

I truly am a bookish library girl - always seeking out new literary experiences and adventures!

This is one list of many more to come of the stories which are next in line of my reading queue! This is only a small sampling of what I am going to be reading, and I hope it shows my diverse palette of interests as much as the wicked joy of being a book blogger! Join my adventures on my bookish blog: Jorie Loves A Story (.com) and converse with me as I read! I appreciate conversations and comments alike. My current list of blog tours & reviews are under: "Bookish Events 2014 & 2015", the full archive of reviews are under "Story Vault", and you can read about me via "My Bookish Life".

Between my wicked happy online haunts and my local library as much as my local library's ILL Cat (a.k.a. "WorldCat") in combination with the various author newsletters + bookish news e-letters I receive on a weekly/monthly basis, I have curated this list of lovelies! Therefore if you want to 'catch the wave' of wicked new releases you might be inspired to scope out:

*Shelf Awareness for Readers (at some point I'll have a separate list of books via this eletter!)
*Book Browse (*I'm a member who reviews via their Early Reviewer "First Impressions" programme; hence "First Frost")
*Book Page (via my local library's print edition you can pick up!)
*Relz Reviews (she highlights the books releasing next in INSPY)
