Suddenly Sunday–6/2/13

Suddenly Sunday

Happy Sunday everyone – hope you are being treated well so far this summer.  We have been in 90+ degree weather for the last 4 days, actually turned on the AC last night in order to be able to sleep. 

I have finally had the chance to start watching this current season of Game of Thrones.  I had finished reading the book the week before the show started, but my fiancé had not finished it until last night – so of course we haven’t been able to watch it with the rest of the world.  We are now however up through Episode 3…

I’ve sort of been in a reading slump lately – probably for the last 2-3 weeks.  I have barely been reading at all – or even listening to audiobooks for that matter.  I think it is because all this stressful stuff is converging right now.  I need to get moving on my research for my class and I haven’t had any motivation even to do the regular homework.  And it’s not for lack of good books – I’m reading Roses by Leila Meacham right now and loving it, but man I have to keep putting it down because I can only handle so much emotions!  Hopefully this will end soon – it has too, paper is due in 3 weeks (eek!) and HNS conference is coming up soon too (the same day the paper is due!).

Speaking of the conference – anyone out there going to the conference?  If so, I would love to meet up with you.  I will be there and also be speaking on a panel about the historical fiction blog within the HF community as a whole.  You can read the descriptions of all of the panels here.

I also have 3 winners to announce today-

The 2 winners of The Raven’s Seal are Colleen T and Gina D!!!  Congrats ladies!!  Please send me your mailing addresses and I will pass them on to the publicist to mail out. 

The winner of Murder as a Fine Art is Meghan S!  Congrats!  Please send me your mailing address and I will pass it on to tour coordinator.

Emails have already been sent!

Hope you al have a great rest of your weekend!

Suddenly Sunday is hosted by Muse in the Fog.

  1. I have no solution on getting going with the school work. I work best under pressure. But the reading slump...I hear you. I started Roses but a library book came in and I had to start that. That hasn't been too good though either but another one just came in!

    Hope your slump gets over quickly and enjoy GOT. Let me know when you're finished this season and we'll chat!

    1. I typically work well under pressure too - there just is literally not enough hours in the day! I think (hope!) I have passed out of the slump. When I got back into Roses I loved it and The Secret History by Stephanie Thornton is excellent so far.

      I am up to date with GOT - can't wait for tonight's episode. My fiance is about halfway through the 4th book in the series and he only started it last weekend and he doesn't typically read that fast!

  2. Thanks again Heather :) Raven's Seal looks good!


Thanks for leaving your comments! I love reading them and try to reply to all!
