Winter Is The Perfect Time To Read!
Monday, January 26th, 2015: Since I’m beginning to feel semi-human again, it’s time to begin tackling all those things that didn’t get done when I’ve got the flu – starting with the most urgent today. “You know, it would be so nice if little flu-helper elves would come in and take care of these things when I don’t feel like doing them,” she said wistfully.
Please note: Giveaway winners will be notified and updated as soon as possible this week, and giveaway books that accumulated while I was sick will also be shipped out this week.
Tuesday, January 27th, 2015: I’ll begin ticking off as many more things on my extensive to-do list as possible today. My mantra is “Nothing to it but to do it!” That and chocolate should get me through the day, I hope…
Wednesday, January 28th, 2015: We’re reviewing The Last American Vampire by bestselling author Seth Grahame-Smith. Who is Henry Sturges? In Abe Lincoln, Vampire Hunter, we knew him as the vampire who couldn’t bear to see Abe Lincoln die and turned him without his permission. In this sequel. we’ll learn Henry’s history and what became of this fascinating man creature in his parallel world’s 19th and 20th century.
Thursday, January 29th, 2015: We’re reviewing and hosting a Giveaway for The Same Sky by Amanda Eyre Ward. Based in part on real immigrants’ experiences, this is probably the most timely novel published so far this year. Ms. Ward looks at the depths of strength, resilience, and hope as experienced by two seemingly different families; one in Texas and one in Honduras. Think you understand U.S. immigration issues?
Friday, January 30th, 2015: We’re reviewing Miramont’s Ghost by Elizabeth Hall. Based in part on the real Miramont Castle in Colorado, this haunting (pun intended) novel is reminiscent of Daphne du Maurier’s Rebecca as it recounts the tale of Adrienne, the young cousin of the man who built the ill-fated Miramont Castle and possibly the only person who knew the truth about it.
Saturday and/or Sunday, January 31st and February 1st, 2015: We’ll update this page for the next week’s of reviews and giveaways. Any new giveaway winners will also updated on Monday, February 2nd because of a must-see Super Bowl (Go Seahawks!). Where did January go?!?!?
