Weekend Book Buzz – 17/18 November 2018

Weekend Book Buzz

Welcome to the Weekend Book Buzz! The end of the year seems to be closing in very quickly, doesn’t it? It does to me, anyway! It doesn’t help that the days where we are just north of Sydney, Australia, are becoming warm and sunny and it’s beginning to feel like summer holidays. The kids are itching to go outside and play rather than do their school work, and there’s a part of me that doesn’t blame them!

But we have a few weeks of school left yet, and plenty more bookish news to come for the year, so let’s get down to business shall we?

Note: WordPress has decided to introduce a new editor for putting together blog posts, and for some reason, changing over to this new editor has meant I lost ALL of the links I had in this post. ðŸ˜« I have managed to go back and add quite a few of those links back in, however most of the books in the ‘New Releases’ and ‘Sales’ sections do not have live links this week simply because of the time involved in putting them all back in.

All that means is that if you want to check out one of those titles, you’ll need to hop on over to your retailer of choice and search for the book yourself. First world problems, I know! But I do so like making everything nice and easy for my readers, so I apologise I can’t do that for you this week. I’m hoping I will have figured out this newfangled system by next week!

    `Lost Christmas Memories`(Dana Mentink) is a very good story.

    I am sorry you lost your links. I’m trying to get used to the new WordPress.
    I don’t like that the calendar no longer shows what dates already have a post 😦
