A few years ago I used to read everything. I’d pick up every single book that touched my fingers and give it a go. I was also receiving a lot of ARCs from publishers (as all new and excited book bloggers do), so I’d read everything that appeared in my mailbox.
Now days I am WAY more picky. I generally only pick up a book if:
– The ratings and reviews on GoodReads are good.
– I’ve been following the author religiously and have heaps of their books.
– I’ve read one book from the author and am intrigued to see if the next will be just as good.
I follow a lot of the above authors on Facebook/Twitter etc, so I always know when they have something new coming out. And at the moment, I can’t wait to get my hands on the following titles!
Without Merit by Colleen Hoover – October 3
Play On by Samantha Young – September 12
The Outskirts by TM Frazier – September 17
Tower of Dawn by Sarah J Maas – September 5
Hideaway by Penelope Douglas – September
Fallen Heir by Erin Watt – August 28
What books are you guys looking forward to?

One of my absolute favourite places to discover books is on GoodReads.
I adore GoodReads for a lot of reasons, but one of my favourite aspects of the site is checking out there “Most Read This Week” section. It’s the best way to find new books! Especially ones that are newly released and not overly popular yet.
I always stalk the “Most Read in Romance” section. This week is currently looking a little like this:
And I’ve actually read a pretty good portion of them. And as you can see, the most read are usually a good judge of what is good and what isn’t. My ratings are all pretty high.
