I and also participating in two other memes. The first is Stacking The Shelves hosted by Tynga at Tynga's Reviews and the second is Mailbox Monday which is hosted by Martha from reviews from Martha's Bookshelf this month.. Stop by and take a look!
HI! Everyone! Did you all have a nice week? I certainly did! Unfortunately not a lot went on here this week. Just one post, a review for Shelter by Francis Greenslade. I even neglected my Bookishly Beautiful post, don't worry though I have one in mind for tomorrow! I wasn't completely a slacker as I did write two reviews, When Morning Comes by Francis Ray and Calling Invisible Women by Jeanne Ray. I hadn't noticed it before but both these novels have authors named Ray, that's kinda cool! Anyways, you will see both reviews this week.
I spent a lot of very enjoyable time reading outside in our backyard enjoying the beautiful weather we had this week! My main book of choice has been The Solitary House by Lynn Shepherd which I am enjoying quite a lot. I hope to have that review for you soon though I am not quite finished yet. I've also been making a lot of bookish friends on Twitter this week, wonderful ladies, both readers and authors, who I hope to continue to get to know and hopefully meet one day! The book highlight of the week would have to be attending The 3rd Annual Gaithersburg Book Fair! It was my first book event and definitely won't be my last! I went with my kids and was not prepared at all but I was lucky enough to catch the last part of Meredith Goldstein's talk and get a signed copy of The Singles! I can't wait to read it! Now who can help me figure out how to get to BEA?! How amazing would that be?
Now on to what I got in my Mailbox this week!
