Good morning and happy Sunday everyone!! I hope you are having a nice weekend - we went out to a peach festival yesterday. We picked up a peach and raspberry pie and a bunch of freshly picked nectarines - both were AMAZING!! Today starts my version of Hell Week - I have my final research paper due next Sunday, so my every moment that I am home is going to be spent on that; so I may not be around that much this coming week. Have to prioritize sometimes!
First, I wanted to do a quick summary of things that have went on this week, in case you missed anything:
- Monday I reviewed Three Links of Chain by Dennis Maley - ★★★½☆☆- Looking for a good HF for your teen/pre-teen? Three Links of Chain addresses the issues of the Underground Railroad and "Bleeding" Kansas admirably.
- Wednesday I shared a guest post by Eliza Redgold about mead as a honeymoon drink in her novel Naked: A Novel of Lady Godiva. I am super excited to read this one. In addition to the guest post, there is a tour-wide giveaway too!
- Thursday I reviewed Enchantress of Paris by Marci Jefferson - ★★★★ ½☆ - I LOVED this book! I haven't read much set in the court of the Sun King, so it was a new experience for me. Summary of this review: You should get your copy now! And you can! There is a giveaway posted with the review - open until the 23rd.
- Saturday I posted a book blast for Enchantress of Paris for Historical Fiction Virtual Book Tours. You want another chance to win Enchantress of Paris? Check out this tour-wide giveaway.
In the reading world this week - I finished 3 books! Not as impressive as it sounds because I didn't begin reading any of those books this week. I listened to Gallagher's Choice by M.K. McClintock, finishing up that series. Review to come soon (I think I still need to review book 2, I have to check!). I finally finished Lady of the Eternal City by Kate Quinn - looooonnngggg overdue, I know! But it is done and a review might be upcoming this week, but more likely next week. And I also finished Enchantress of Paris by Marci Jefferson.
I started reading The Sisters of Versailles by Sally Christie for a review/tour stop upcoming in a couple weeks and began listening to The Woman Who Would Be King by Kara Cooney about Hatshepsut of Egypt. Both are good so far, I am only in the early moments of both of these as I started them yesterday.
And last but not least, I have a winner to announce for the giveaway of The Lure of the Moonflower by Lauren Willig... and that winner is...
Congrats!!! I have already sent out the email to the winner. Thanks to everyone that entered and make sure you check out the rest of the giveaways!
Thanks for being great blog followers, see you later in the week!
