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 fiancé 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:
- The HMS Terror and Erebus – a Tragic Story – some background information on the ships that would be lost during the Franklin Expedition
- The Franklin Expedition – Cultural Spin Off – looking back at the Expedition through art, music, and literature with links, videos, and photos. I particularly liked the music and what was behind the songs.
- Book Review: The Terror by Dan Simmons
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.
