I'm participating in both The Sunday Post, hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer and Stacking the Shelves, hosted by Tynga's Reviews. Each meme allows book bloggers the chance to share books they've received, and different posts and events at their blog.
This past week was a busy one for me. School opened again and I spent the week in two classrooms, prepping for the new year. This week, the kids return. I'm in new classrooms this year, with younger kids. I expect to spend most of September doing a zombie imitation on my couch every day after work. I'm not sure how much reviewing I'll get done but I've got an ambitious schedule planned. Of course, I'm still sick, so that doesn't help.
I only posted one review this week, "Harmless As Doves", a mystery by P.L. Gaus. There were two book excerpts: Blaze of Winter by Elisabeth Barrett and Until There Was You by Jessica Scott. I'm participating in Romance At Random's Labor Day Blog Hop, it runs through September 15th, and my End of Summer Giveaway is still going on, 12 books, 3 winners. There's a short interview with author Christie Craig along with a giveaway of her book, "Blame It On Texas". I also posted the weekly Dusty Reads link up and my wrap up post of the August Review Copy Clean Up.
I saw this on another blog and decided to give it a try.
Geeky Bloggers Book Blog is switching to mostly reviews of mysteries and had a big event to kick off the change. A giveaway was part of the kick off and I was lucky enough to be one of the winners.
OK, first of all, Anna Leonard is really Laura Anne Gilman and I love her writing. Second, the male lead is a were-unicorn. How could I pass that up? Expect lots of kindle shares when I read it. :D
That's it, that was my week. How was yours? Leave a link along with your comment and, if I can stay awake, I'll visit during the week.
