I skipped a post last week, due to my wildly unrealistic expectation of being a part of the Love-a-Thon blog event. It looked like such a great idea and there were posts to do ahead of time (so many posts...). Well, I realized on Thursday night that I should have planned better because there was no way I was going to be able to do all the work needed to participate in any meaningful way. So I bailed!
Here is what I read, and received in the last TWO weeks:
My favorite book read has got to be Sisi: Empress On Her Own, by Allison Pataki. It is a grand, sweeping historical fiction based on the famous Empress Elisabeth (or Sisi) of Austria. She was the Princess Diana of her day: famous, beautiful, and dreadfully lonely. I will come out with a review of this book soon. If you like Historical Fiction, look for this book coming out on March 8th.
With the movie trailer starting to show up around the web, I thought I should re-read this romantic tear-jerker. I loved this book, and am really looking forward to the movie!
Books From The Library:
I am an aide in a school and the students I work with are reading this book for some of their reading groups. It looks really good. I hope to read it quickly so I know what the students are talking about during discussions and reading reflections.
Received As Part Of A Blog Tour:
Whoo Hoo! I signed up for two blog tours recently and I got both of these in the mail this week! I am so stoked because I was just expecting to get digital copies! I have some physical ARC, but that is just because I won some contests. I feel like such a grown-up blogger now!
Speaking of being a grown-up blogger, I just celebrated my one year blogging anniversary! In honor of that, I am doing a rafflecopter contest. Follow this blog and enter for a chance to win a $50 Amazon Gift Card!!! I feel really blessed to be a blogger and to be a part of such a wonderful community of bookworms!
