*UPDATE*

I am no longer an Amazon Associate. I am currently working on updating my posts with links to various locations to buy books. One of the links I am including is to RJ Julia - this is my favorite local independent book store. You can shop their store online and have access to pretty much anything you are looking for. I do not have any affiliation with any of these sites - just looking to support my local indie book store.

Anyone looking for a new feed reader? My recommendation is Bloglovin'. I made the switch and love the layout, plus there is now an app for my phone. If you use Bloglovin' or have made the switch to another feed reader, please make sure you are following me on it so you miss none of the content here!

Suddenly Sunday–3/24/13

Suddenly Sunday

It’s suddenly Sunday and I have SO much to do!  That’s what you get from trying to catch up from a week’s vacation, my fiancĂ© starting clinical rotations this past week, hanging out with my best girlfriends yesterday and accomplishing nothing, and mom coming up today to start thinking about wedding planning. AHHHHH!!!!  If you missed my announcement on Facebook earlier this week – I got engaged 2 weeks ago while on a cruise in the Bahamas!

So you might have noticed this week that my blog posts have been posting at all kinds of ridiculous times of the day as opposed to my almost regular posting of 6 AM.  I just have been playing catch up – this week should be more regular *fingers crossed*.   

In terms of what was posted this past week – I tried to have a themed week revolving around the ill-fated Franklin Expedition to discover the Northwest Passage.  If you don’t know anything about this expedition (I didn’t before reading The Terror) check out this past week’s posts.  Those posts included:

Coming up this week I have two different stops on tours for Historical Fiction Virtual Book Tours. On Monday a review and giveaway of Like Chaff in the Wind by Anna Belfrage and on Thursday I have an interview with P.A. Staes, author of The Bruges Tapestry

And to round out this post – a giveaway winner.  The winner of Lady of the Ashes by Christine Trent is…Kim!  Congrats!  An email has already been sent out and if no response is received within 5 days a new winner will be selected. 

Well I hope everyone has a great Sunday!

Suddenly Sunday is hosted by Muse in the Fog.

  1. Congratulations on your engagement, Heather! Enjoy the wedding planning and all the excitement that goes along with it :-) It might get frustrating at times, but it will all be worth it in the end.

    I'm looking forward to your review of Like Chaff on the Wind -- I'll be reading that one very soon.

    1. Thank you! I'm trying to take it just a little at a time right now, since I have over a year, and I also working, in school, and blogging!

  3. Huzzah! Congratulations, Heather :) My best advice: take your time finding the right photographer. But beyond that, just take one step at a time and enjoy every moment. It's really a time I wish I could relive multiple times so I could savor it more fully.

    I'll check back in for the interview with P.A. Staes!

  6. Congratulations! Thanks for the review of The Terror. I tried this one about a year ago and got about 50 pages in but just wasn't in the mood for it. Perhaps it is time to give it another try :)

    1. Thanks! The Terror is very long in print version - that's one reason why I went for the audio. I did very much enjoy the production of this one and would highly recommend the audio version.
