First off, a reminder. If you'd like to enter the giveaway to win a copy of Michel Stone's The Iguana Tree, do your commenting now on this post. I'll draw the winning name early Saturday afternoon. I should note, this one took bronze in the Literary Fiction category in the Independent Publisher Book Awards. Congrats to Michel Stone and Hub City Press!
I've also been tempted by another of my favorite bloggers, and I'll be jumping in on Allie's A Victorian Celebration. The goal: read as many Victorian pieces as you wish during the months of June and July. Realistically, I don't know how many pieces I'll read, but ideally I'd like to re-read some Dickens. I've wanted to go through A Tale of Two Cities again for years. I read it as a senior in high school, but it's been a long time since then! And if I'm feeling a non-fiction mood creep up, I might also try to throw myself into Born to Rule by Julia P. Gelardi. I've had it on my stacks for a while now, and it's about five of Victoria's granddaughters who all married into other royal families. Stretching the theme a bit, but it's still Victoria-related!
Finally, it seems like I'm getting back into the swing of my own social media (blogging, Tweeting, Pinning) and not so consumed by work all day and night. The semester is wrapping up so I'm frantically trying to get online grading done, though. If you'd like to join me in a variety of forums to watch me run around with my hair on fire, you'll find me here:
While I know most of you are already in these places, and likely also already my friend, I am consistently astounded by the folks I love and follow and comment upon who I'll realize years later are not on my Goodreads friends list. Then I smack myself and wonder how that happened. No mas!
Have a great Thursday, everyone!!! I hope it's a bookish day.
