We are one month into 2018 and is it just me or does it feel like the start of a marathon? I feel like as soon as the clock struck midnight I was hitting the ground running and have yet to slow down.
There are periods where I bounce between books, this happens to be one of them. Currently, I am bouncing between The Phantom’s Apprentice which is one of those cases where you can judge a book by its cover. It’s just as beautiful on the inside as it is on the outside. Don’t you think?
In addition to this, I am being swept away by The Girls in the Picture and The Secret Life of Mrs. London.
Currently Listening To:
I have a long-standing goal to read all of the books on the Pulitzer Prize list. This never-ending goal will get easier once I catch up in reading all of the previous books. And to help with this goal, I have begun listening to them on Audible. There is something to be said for listening to finely written books. In many ways, it’s like listening to a symphony. The current book on my playlist: The Giliead.
Listening to John Ames compose a heartfelt letter to his son about his hopes and dreams; his past and his present is made all the more intimate in this format.
These new beauties came in the mail on Friday.
I’m excited to dig into them.
Boca De Oro Updates:
I took a look at my schedule and realized I had room for more authors! Officially joining us on March 3rd is Rolanda Watts, with her book Destiny Lingers. There are more announcements to come so be sure to check back.
Wine, Women and Words:
It’s been an exciting month over at Wine, Women and Words as well. In case you missed it, last week we had author Deborah Pratt on the show to talk about her book series, Vision Quest. If you aren’t familiar with Deborah, you may be familiar with a little show that she co-created and wrote called Quantum Leap.
Next Week in Creating Herstory:
I have so much planned for you this month!
In celebration of Black History Month Fierce Femme Friday will be dedicated to black women who helped shape history. And to help us celebrate this I have lined up some phenomenal authors to guest post each week, including Piper Huguely who will be kicking off the festivities.
Next week I will have also have a book review for you on the Underground Railroad and a look at the pitfalls of viewing history from only one perspective.
