4. Name the title, author, etc.

"Not much I can do about that. Unless I back off and stop making suggestions, stop doing 'impossible' things with the Q-net.'s so not my style. I refuse to let Jarren win and if that's going to make the rest of the team uneasy, that's on them." p 102

TITLE: Chasing the Shadows
AUTHOR: Maria V. Snyder

RELEASE DATE: November 18, 2019

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

This week's topic is: Thankful Freebie: Top Ten Things I'm Thankful For (Bookish Edition)!

*in no particular order

10. AUTHORS--they write the books!
9. PUBLISHERS--from big to small, they publish the books!
8. E-ARCS--the way I get to read 99% of the books I want to read early!

7. BLOGGER FRIENDS--friends like Amber, Nikki, and Tracy are the reasons why I continue blogging! It's so fun having blogger friends even if we all live all over the place!
6. BOOKISH ARTISTS--there's a whole slew of these! Some of my faves are Pages of the Night and Dust and Pages! Because of them I get to have ART of my favorite books!
5. BOOKSLEEVES--the invention of the book gods! Lol! I don't know how I went so long without these things in my life!

4. BOOKMARKS--I know some people are against them, but I honestly love them! Those dreadful times when I HAVE to put my book down for "life" things, I'm grateful to have one of these puppies!
3. MY HEALTH--because yeah, if I was sick or something I probably wouldn't have the strength or energy to read!
2. MY FAMILY--because in the long run, I've my mom to thank for my reading habits! She read to me as a kid at bedtime and it soon spawned what I am now! LOL!

1. BOOKS--because books make the world go round and keep me happy and sane! This here is like TBR piles 9-13! Lol.


  1. Great list! Book blogging definitely wouldn't be as fun without fellow bloggers to get excited over books with. =)

  2. Love your list, Jessica. By a weird coincidence, I'm currently reading the first book in the Maria V. Snyder series and that is my TT this week! Have a great reading week.

  3. Excellent list. I’m grateful for all of these things, too. Happy Thanksgiving!

  4. Great list!
    Love that you included bookish artists

  5. Great list!! Books was #1 on my list, too.

  6. This was a lovely list, and blogger friends are the best. :)

  12. I love bookmarks, too! I tend to use sturdy, non-fussy ones, but I love pretty, blingy ones as well.

    Happy TTT!

  13. All of these things are great things to be thankful for!

  14. I love the picture of you and Amber. Fabulous! And, I am definitely grateful for eARCs, because my eyes are garbage and reading a physical book is utter punishment for me.

  15. Great list! I couldn't agree more with the whole list (including bookmarks - I love em!).

  16. Awesome list! I’ve never met any bloggers in real life, but I’m happy to know them online.
