I have updated my review and giveaway policies page (now just titled Policies above). If you are entering a giveaway, please read and abide by the applicable policy.

I am no longer an Amazon Associate. I am currently working on updating my posts with links to various locations to buy books. One of the links I am including is to RJ Julia - this is my favorite local independent book store. You can shop their store online and have access to pretty much anything you are looking for. I do not have any affiliation with any of these sites - just looking to support my local indie book store.

Anyone looking for a new feed reader? My recommendation is Bloglovin'. I made the switch and love the layout, plus there is now an app for my phone. If you use Bloglovin' or have made the switch to another feed reader, please make sure you are following me on it so you miss none of the content here!

And Suddenly It’s Sunday!

I’ve been a little while since I have been actively here in the blogging world – my apologies – but I was a little crazy busy. 


I got married on June 21st – it was beautiful and a long time coming (we have been together for 8 years!).  We then were on honeymoon in the Dominican Republic and then came back, my husband started a new job the next day, and have started packing because we are moving in 2 weeks!  Could I pack any more in to the last 3 weeks?!


So I’m working on trying to get back into reading/blogging mode.  I can tell you one thing – I’m going to get no where close to my reading goal for this year (I’m 11 books behind schedule according to Goodreads)!

For a little bit of blogging business – I owe you all a winner of the giveaway for The Queen’s Exiles by Barbara Kyle.  And that winner is…Martina C!!

Congrats Martina!  I have sent the winner an email requesting mailing information and if no information is received within 5 days I will select a new winner.

Stay tuned this week – I have a review of Somerset by Leila Meacham as well as a mini theme series of posts about the Galveston Hurricane of 1900 (which was I cued into by a passing sentence in Somerset).  I will also have a review of Isaac’s Storm by Erik Larson.
