Top of the Blog to You: March 2016

Just 5 months into full time blogging and March was a banner month for I Read What You Write. We hit milestones in followers, had more visitors than any two months previous and more likes than all the months since we started. It is all kind of cool since I had to take so much time off due to health issues.

Some super spectacular books have come through and Lian and I have talked to some really great (and super nice) authors. It isn’t surprising that the top viewed posts this month were interviews or that the most popular book reviews were mostly Cozies.

Our Thanks to the authors for writing outstanding novels and for taking the time to answer a few questions.  I would also to give a shout out to Great Escapes Book Tours, B00k R3vi3w book tours and The Magic of Books Promotions. They are just a few of the book tour site I work with and all three offer wonderful book tours and the flawless cross promotion that no doubt played a huge part in our success this last month.

Book Review: Between Good and Evil
A gripping #Thriller that grabs the reader from the first page, this book was popular as a review, a book blast and also in the interview with author R. Michael Philips.

Part of an outstanding series of thrillers, written by author Cate Beauman, set around the fictitious firm of Ethan Cooke Security. Each book was better than the last and this was particularly enjoyable. Links to all of our reviews in the series are in the link above.

Book Review: Murder in an Irish Village
This sweet cozy set against the backdrop of a small Irish village, filled with just quirkiest small town characters possible, could have hooked me on the genre all by itself. Just as fun are the answers of author Carlene O’ Connor to Lian’s 5 Questions.

Book Review: Help Me!
I wasn’t able to read this book without seeing the faces of the kids my son goes to school with. It’s raw honesty about a topic that needs discussion hit a home in a scary way. Still to come is interview with author Donna Zadunsjsky

Book Review: Bad Luck by Pseudonymous Bosch
This was a book I found on Netgalley and I had to request it based on the author’s name alone. It was certainly worth it. It is a fun fantasy middle grades/ Teen novel filled with magic kids, scheming adults and, of course, a dragon. The second book in the series, it set up book 3 fantastically.
