Welcome to June everyone! I can't believe that half the year is already over! Unbelievable! This was an incredibly slow, alright non-existent, week here on A Library of our Own. I'm not sure exactly why. I finished Rainshadow Road by Lisa Kleypas and read Dancing Naked in Dixie by Lauren Clark, which will be featured as part of a blog tour on June 14th. I have three books waiting to be reviewed and posted, the two I promised you for this week and now Rainshadow Road. have no fear, they will eventually all end up here.
There was some brief excitement around here when I found out that I had won a Blogger's Pass to BEA from Armchair BEA however that was short lived as I reluctantly decided that there was too much that would need to be arranged in a very short period of time. I declined the Blogger's Pass with great regret and many thanks to Armchair BEA. I'll definitely be planning ahead for next year. As for this year I will be following along with all the other great bloggers registered for Armchair BEA! It looks like it will be a lot of fun!
My oldest daughter and I attended a signing of Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzgerald today at the Arlington, VA library! This was a lot of fun and hopefully the beginning of many great book adventures for us! We are already planning a trip to see Emily Griffen in July! I have not read Hush, Hush but my daughter loves it and not only got it signed but also the two following books and the Hush, Hush graphic novel, which we won at the event today! She may be passing these along to me in the not so distant future, Some very exciting news that came out of today is that my eldest daughter may be joining me here at A Library of our Own and doing some book reviews of her own! She already has at least two picked out that she would like to do. Let us all keep our fingers crossed that she finds the time, while working and going to school, so that we may officially welcome her very soon!
