Sunday Salon #6

This week I was very excited to post the first book giveaway that I have ever done on my blog! It is for a copy of The Rest of Her Life by Laura Moriarty. If you have been waiting to read this one come on over to my blog and leave me a comment under that post!

I am right in the middle of The White Mary by Kira Salak. I'm on page 124. It's a little bit slow for me, but interesting. The main character is a journalist who bravely (recklessly?) journeys to dangerous areas of the world looking for a story. I'm looking forward to seeing how it ends.

This has been a good week for books at my house! I received:

The Heretic Queen by Michelle Moran. This is the sequel to her previous book Nefertiti. I am thrilled to have it and very grateful to her for sending it to me!

The Magicians and Mrs. Quent by Galen Beckett. The debut novel from this author, it's about magick and magicians...reminding me of "Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell" (which I loved).

Lavinia by Ursula K. Le Guin. Lavinia was a character from Vergil's Aeneid, the king's daughter, this is her story.

Thanks Michelle, I can't wait to get started. Historical fiction is my favorite genre and Ancient Egypt is one of my favorite areas!

About Me

New Hampshire, United States
Bibliophile, Anglophile, Traveller... I have been an avid reader all of my life, since I took the Dr. Seuss Dictionary away from my Mom when I was less than a year old because I wanted to read it myself. In college, where I earned my degree in English Literature, I was often asked "What are you going to do with it?" Now I finally have the answer to that question!!! Being employed as a Flight Attendant for twenty years has given me a lot of life experience and, better still, a lot of time to read. I love to travel for fun, too.
