Sometimes it’s nice to be able to try something new. I enjoy this weekly meme on Caffeinated Book Reviewer so I thought I would give it a go here.
Have you ever had one of those weeks where everything happens all at once? I swear I don’t think I got home before 8pm a single night! I had a hard time just keeping up with my fiction which meant there was no time for blogging. However I do have a few things from last week, such as my fantastic interview with Alison Love.
Almost a month ago my friend, Michele, and I started a Videopodcast called Wine, Women & Words. This past week we talked about our dream literary destinations and talked about our book of the month, The Portable Veblen. Check it out here.
Coming up This Week:
I have been researching notable women from World War 2 for an article. I checked in with a friend, Antonia, who is a World War 2 rein-actor. She gave me the name of a heroine that I can’t wait to share with you all.
Southern California is experiencing it’s first major heat wave of the summer this weekend. (Of course, just before I get my new air conditioner) So, needless to say, this weekend the only thing I am going to have the energy to do is float around the pool and read. Expect there to be a book review for each of these this week. As well as a wrap up over at Wine, Women and Words.
With the beginning of summer
I swear, sometimes I get more excited about new books arriving at my house than I do shoes. Like seriously, it’s like a mini Christmas.
I am particularly excited about these two:
I am so excited to read The Semper Sonnet. Every summer reading list needs a good mystery and this my friends is going to be my summer mystery.
I have been fascinated by the Moulin Rouge since the 2001 movie with Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor. I was also quite fond of Cliff Simon when he played Baal on Stargate SG-1. So this book is going to be a curiosity quencher for my.
Around the Internet
I really loved the guest post by Kimberly Novosel on Coach Daddy, it totally puts a new perspective on Mondays.
Last night i had a wonderful girls night with sushi and making Harry Potter wands from this website.
