HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY to everyone! I hope that you are enjoying yourselves so far! Last night I attended the wedding of a friend, one of the last in this group to get married, we still have one holdout, and it was lovely! A chance to see them publicly proclaim their love and experience, for the first time, a Thai Water Ceremony. They also did one of those very fun choreographed first dances! This wedding was also a chance for a group of friends who now live in CA, FL, MA and the DC area to get together again and catch up. What a wonderful thing! We will continue this a at a BBQ today with all but one of the couples. Such a special time especially with all the new little additions! Now we just need the last one to get married so we can do this all again and then I guess we'll have to find a new excuse! Anyway, I guess that's enough rambling on about me.
On the blog this week we had three posts; Monday's Bookishly Beautiful which is definitely worth a look, a review of Calling Invisible Women by Jeanne Ray, and a review of When Morning Comes by Francis Ray. I also read two books; The Solitary House by Lynn Shepherd and The Cranes Dance by Meg Howrey. I enjoyed both of these very much and you can look forward to the reviews coming out this week. Right now I've started reading Rainshadow Road by Lisa Kleypas.
A really exciting piece of news is that I will be participating in a blog tour for I Couldn't Love You More by Jillian Medoff including a Q/A with the author and a giveaway! I am thrilled to be a part of this! It is scheduled for Tuesday, June 26th!
I've been toying with a few ideas for opinion/discussion blog posts though haven't quite worked out the what and how. Keep an eye out for one of those in the next couple of weeks!
Now on to the books I received this week! I noted this week that I get a little sad if my mailbox forgets to bring me a book one day but the fact is that there is no way I could ever read a book a day. That means that some of these lovely books will end up neglected which is such a shame. I'm going to start thinking about this conundrum but any suggestions you all have would be greatly welcomed! So without further ado, here are this weeks newest additions!
Girl Unmoored by Jennifer Gooch Hummer - Thanks Larraine from The Divining Wand!
The Accidental Billionaires: The Founding Of Facebook by Ben Mezrich - Thanks Anchor Books!
I Never Promised You a Goodie Bag by Jennifer Gilbert - Thanks Chick Lit Central!
I Couldn't Love You More by Jillian Medoff
The Butterfly Cabinet by Bernie McGill - Thanks Free Press
Wunderkind by Nikolai Grozni - Thanks Free Pree
I also pick up 3 or 4 free chick lit books for Kindle which are not pictured.
How was your week and what did your mailbox bring you? I'd love to hear from you! Talk to you again next Sunday!
