Rise and shine! Happy, happy Sunday! Thank goodness for scheduled posts, because I haven’t been around at all this week – for a good portion of it I didn’t even have Internet! I’ve been keeping pretty quiet about the whole thing, but now that it’s over and done with I can finally announce: Matt & I are now homeowners! It’s still a bit surreal and this weekend we’ll be finishing up the move with the rest of our clothes and bigger furniture, so at this point it kind of feels like we’re on vacation and staying in a cabin ha! Gotta love living out of boxes :) (although I’m thrilled to say we’ve moved in our computer desks, so I’m no longer working like this.)
SO because I haven’t been around, what have I missed?? New books announced? New authors I should watch out for?? What’s been going on?!
Time flies and I still can’t get over that my youngest niece is now a big 4-year-old! :( :( Especially since facebook’s memory feature show me the photo I shared from the day she was born. NO. Stay little forever, Faye.
The Secret Daughter of the Tsar by Jennifer Laam
I was ecstatic when I was picked as the winner of Jennifer’s book in our #HistoricalFix chat! I’ve had my eye on this one for a while now and it comes recommended from friends, so yay! ♥ Thank you, Jennifer!
In Case You Missed It
J. Ryan Stradal’s Kitchens of the Great Midwest is a light-hearted, quick novel with a quirky format and ton of recipes added to further the story.
Pretty Baby is Mary Kubica’s second novel and boy was it a ride! I’m sad to say the ending didn’t work for me (though I’m positive other readers will be all over it!) but this one was incredibly addictive and ‘just one more chapter’ eventually turned into reading the book in a sitting.
