Lisa’s Looking Forward To #39 – November 19th, 2019

November 13, 2019 LLFT 24

Back to joining up with the Waiting on Wednesday Posts, and the Can’t
Wait Wednesday posts hosted by Wishful Endings.  Only two books this week to share.

From my ARC list for November 19th, 2019:

I loved his first book, Denton Little’s Deathdate, even though I still need to finish the sequel to it.  So I am sure this one will be laugh out loud funny as well.

Here is the blurb from Goodreads:


The author of

Denton Little’s Deathdate

gives us a tragicomic story of bad dates, bad news, bad
performances, and one girl’s determination to find the funny in high
school.

Winnie Friedman has been waiting for the world to catch on to what she already knows: she’s hilarious.

It
might be a long wait, though. After bombing a stand-up set at her own
bat mitzvah, Winnie has kept her jokes to herself. Well, to herself and
her dad, a former comedian and her inspiration.

Then, on the
second day of tenth grade, the funniest guy in school actually laughs at
a comment she makes in the lunch line and asks her to join the improv
troupe. Maybe he’s even . . . flirting?

Just when Winnie’s
ready to say yes to comedy again, her father reveals that he’s been
diagnosed with ALS. That is . . . not funny. Her dad’s still making
jokes, though, which feels like a good thing. And Winnie’s prepared to
be his straight man if that’s what he wants. But is it what he needs?

Caught
up in a spiral of epically bad dates, bad news, and bad performances,
Winnie’s struggling to see the humor in it all. But finding a way to
laugh is exactly what will see her through.

I loved the first book that this is a sequel too, Navigating the Stars, and I can’t wait for this one!  Just wish I’d had an e-galley or ARC of it to read.

Here is the blurb from Goodreads:

New York Times
bestselling author Maria V. Snyder returns with the next page-turning
instalment of the new sci-fi series: Sentinels of the Galaxy Year 2522.
Lyra Daniels is dead.

Okay, so I only died for sixty-six seconds.
But when I came back to life, I got a brand new name and a snazzy new
uniform. Go me! Seriously, though, it’s very important that Lyra Daniels
stays dead, at least as far as my ex-friend Jarren, the murdering
looter, knows.

While dying is the scariest thing that’s happened
to me, it morphed my worming skills. I can manipulate the Q-net like
never before. But Jarren has blocked us from communicating with the rest
of the galaxy and now they believe we’ve gone silent, like Planet Xinji
(where silent really means dead).

A Protector Class spaceship is
coming to our rescue, but we still have to survive almost two years
before they arrive – if they arrive at all. Until then, we have to
figure out how to stop an unstoppable alien threat. And it’s only a
matter of time before Jarren learns I’m not dead and returns to finish
what he started.

There’s no way I’m going to let Jarren win.
Instead I’ll do whatever it takes to save the people I love. But even
I’m running out of ideas…

‘Smart, witty and full of heart,
Navigating the Stars had me hooked from the very first page!’ – Lynette
Noni, bestselling author of The Medoran Chronicles

Final Thoughts:
The number of books this week is even fewer than last week.  Have you read any of these yet?  Are they
on your TBR? 
And hey, while you’re here, you should go try to win some
of my ARCs from Cleaning Up My TBR Post
HERE.  The US only giveaway is open till Friday at midnight, there are even some 2019 ARCs that can be one of your two choices.

    I want to check out Chasing the Shadows – even if the cover does make me cold (which may have more to do with the temperature drop here than the actual cover 🙂

  2. Jessica @ a GREAT read

    SUPER excited for Chasing the Shadows!! Just ordered my US copy, and trying to figure out how I can get this Aussie copy as TBD never got them in stock! I've signed up like 3 times now to be told when it was back in stock and 3 times they told me it hasn't come back and the don't know if/when it will. Sigh…

    Here's my WoW

    Have a GREAT day!

      I've got to hurry up and get a copy, not that I have time to read it at the moment. Ugh. I hate when that kind of stuff happens with TBD. Good luck on it though! Thanks for visiting!

  3. Samantha@WLABB

    I read Crying Laughing last month. It was good. I liked all the improv stuff, and there are some really tender and beautiful father-daughter moments shared in there

  4. Olivia's Catastrophe

    Even though I know both of these authors from seeing them on book blogs, I have never read anything by them and didn't know of their new books coming out. I hope you will love both of these ^.^
