June TBR

Posted on Updated on

In the hopes I can control my all-too-frequent impulse purchases and agreements to read new books, I started a new monthly segment on my blog where I list all the books I will read in the upcoming month. I hope that having something written, where I can be held accountable, helps me keep from increasing the TBR until I clear off many books I already want to read. I am going to plan 8 books each month, which is in-line with my 2018 Goodreads challenge to read in total 104 books (two per week). I’ve left some room to add anything in case I win an ARC or have a due date for an unplanned read. That said, let’s dive into next month’s planned reads…

About Me
For those new to me or my reviews… here’s the scoop: I’m Jay, an author who lives in NYC. My novels, Watching Glass Shatter and Father Figure, can be purchased on Amazon as electronic copies or physical copies. I write A LOT. I read A LOT. And now I blog A LOT. First the book review goes on Goodreads, and then I send it on over to my WordPress blog at, where you’ll find the revealing and introspective 365 Daily Challenge – words and humor. You can also find all my social media profiles to get the details on the who/what/when/where and my pictures. Leave a comment and let me know what you think. Thanks for stopping by. Note: All written content is my original creation and copyrighted to me, but the graphics and images were linked from other sites and belong to them. Many thanks to their original creators. Follow my blog with Bloglovin.


Father Figure: Book Blog Tour Has Begun!

Posted on

Hello! I returned from my ~3 week trip to England and Italy less than 24 hours ago and am still kicking out a bit of jet lag. Major kudos and thanks to Big Sis AKA Roda @ Growing Self for the amazing job she did running the blog while I was away — more thanks to her to come soon… Pics and stories of the trip will be shared over the weekend, but today’s post is a heads up and the schedule for something very special with Father Figure — my second novel.

For five days from June 4th thru June 8th, Reads and Reels is hosting an amazing book blog tour to help promote Father Figure across the world. Below are the links and schedule to read the posts each day. Stay tuned for book excerpts, discount options, and a GIVEAWAY. Check out my author website with a full list of all the Father Figure reviews, posts, interviews and details!
