Hope everyone has been staying warm! It is snowing a little bit here and quite windy. I think I’m just going to curl up with a book for a little bit this morning until it is time to go to the grocery store. Hoping to finish Lady of Ashes by Christine Trent – less than 100 pages to go. I also started listening to Iscariot by Tosca Lee this week. It is Biblical fiction which tells the story of Judas from his perspective. I’m not too far into it yet, but I’m really enjoying the writing and the story. What is everyone else reading?
I’m so glad I have tomorrow off – so much stuff to do! This is the last week of classes for both myself and my boyfriend – so excited! I will then have the whole month of March off before starting my next class and he will have two weeks off before beginning 14 months of veterinary rotations. So looking forward to our cruise to the Bahamas in March as well!!! Hoping to accomplish some major reading in the next month.
Today I have a couple winners to announce! The winner of A Tainted Dawn by B.N. Peacock is…Lara!! The winner of The Forgotten Queen by D. L. Bogdan is…Angela!! Congrats to you both. I have sent an email to the winners already for their mailing address. If I do not receive a response within 5 days I will select a new winner.
**UPDATE** – I received notification that Lara had already won a copy of A Tainted Dawn and have drawn a new winner. That winner is…Kimberly!!!
This week was the week for guest posts – I hosted two. One was with Sarah Pleydell, author of Cologne. Her guest post is about her selection of 1960’s London as her setting in the novel. The second was with Alana White, author of The Sign of the Weeping Virgin, about her inspiration and writing on said novel.
There are currently two giveaways running. The giveaway for The Ambassador’s Daughter by Pam Jenoff ends next Sunday, February 24th and is for one copy open to the US and Canada. The second giveaway is for The Sign of the Weeping Virgin by Alana White, which ends March 3rd and is for one copy open internationally. This upcoming week will bring one more giveaway into the fray for a copy of Thwarted Queen by Cynthia Haggard.
That’s about it for me. Stay tuned later for my Weekend Cooking segment that should have went up yesterday but I didn’t have the time to finish the post.
Suddenly Sunday is hosted by Muse in the Fog.
