Since last Sunday, I have:
- announced a contest for Marie-Therese, Child of Terror by Susan Nagel. If you’ve ever wondered what happened to Marie Antoinette’s daughter, stop by my blog post here and enter to win!
- reviewed The Sea by John Banville, which was the first of my Book Awards Challenge II books.
- completed the Book Buzz meme, Tuesday Thingers, and Booking Through Thursday.
- also reviewed Enemy of God and Excalibur by Bernard Cornwell, Erotomania by Francis Levy, and The Hero and the Crown by Robin McKinley.
- finished reading The Queen’s Tale by D.J. Birmingham, Schooled by Anisha Lakhani, When We Were Romans by Matthew Kneale, and Devil’s Brood by Sharon Kay Penman. I’ll be reviewing the first three very soon, but it will be a while for Devil’s Brood as it isn’t released until October (thanks to Kathleen of Kathleen’s Book Reviews for lending it to me!)
I’m not sure what I’ll be reading this week. I bought both The 19th Wife: A Novel by David Ebershoff and The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows, and they’ve mysteriously managed to push their way to the top of the TBR piles. I guess LT Early Reviewers does work, doesn’t it? I requested both and wasn’t lucky enough to get them, and the reviews there and on quite a few of the blogs I read convinced me that they were worth reading soon. I also have several September-release ARCs to get through before even more of them come in the mail. It’s going to be a busy week! I hope yours is a good one.
