And Suddenly It’s Sunday!

I’ve been a little while since I have been actively here in the blogging world – my apologies – but I was a little crazy busy. 


I got married on June 21st – it was beautiful and a long time coming (we have been together for 8 years!).  We then were on honeymoon in the Dominican Republic and then came back, my husband started a new job the next day, and have started packing because we are moving in 2 weeks!  Could I pack any more in to the last 3 weeks?!


So I’m working on trying to get back into reading/blogging mode.  I can tell you one thing – I’m going to get no where close to my reading goal for this year (I’m 11 books behind schedule according to Goodreads)!

For a little bit of blogging business – I owe you all a winner of the giveaway for The Queen’s Exiles by Barbara Kyle.  And that winner is…Martina C!!

Congrats Martina!  I have sent the winner an email requesting mailing information and if no information is received within 5 days I will select a new winner.

Stay tuned this week – I have a review of Somerset by Leila Meacham as well as a mini theme series of posts about the Galveston Hurricane of 1900 (which was I cued into by a passing sentence in Somerset).  I will also have a review of Isaac’s Storm by Erik Larson.
