20 Things This Week

Here’s a look at some interesting things we read/ saw / thought / did this week.

Kim –

  1. Best New Thrillers of June. Really excited about this list as it includes books from several of my favorite authors.
  2. Build Your Own WordPress Site. You might want to check out this course if you’re interested in doing this.
  3. New Look for the Goodreads Homepage. What do you think of this design? So far, I’m really liking it!
  4. The Best Anthologies for Science Fiction and Fantasy. All the resources here! You really need to check this out. I think Tanya and I would be most likely to dive into the Year’s Best Weird Fiction.
  5. Top Ten Murder Series to Read and to Watch. I’m a huge fan of Midsommer Murders and, of course, Sherlock. Great list!
  6. Alex Awards. I’m just barely getting around to paying attention to this award. It’s given to adult books that have young adult appeal. You might want to check out the 2016 winners.
