I’m back, exciting news and Blog Hop!

My family and I had a lovely time away, the kids loved the zoo so much we went twice. Now it’s the mound of clothes washing piled in the laundry that I’m dreading – the red dust gets into everything!

I managed to get a little reading done, I finished the Brighter Side of Disaster, Desperate Choices, Jenny Pox, Are You There Vodka, It’s Me Chelsea and I’m halfway through Pandora’s Succession. I forgot to take Mind Games with me. Look for reviews soon!

While I was gone I won a Goodreads First Read copy of Darker Music and arrived home to find it waiting for me. A much better suprise than the 800+ emails I am wading through!

It’s going to take me a little while to catch up but I have some exciting news to share. On October 12th, I’ll be posting an interview (my first) with 5 time author, Brenda Youngerman and a giveaway. So don’t forget to check back and see what she has to say!

Book Blogger Hop

If you are hopping by from Crazy-For-Books, I’d like to welcome you to have a browse around.

This week’s question comes from Suko who blogs at Suko’s Notebook.

What’s your favorite beverage while reading or blogging, if any? Is it tea, coffee, water, a glass of wine, or something else?

I’m a Coke Zero fiend, I need the caffeine but sugar gives me a headache.Β  It doesn’t matter what time of the day or the temperature and I carry a can with me most everywhere in my purple “Let’s Party” stubby holder.

    You’re my kind of woman if you think finishing four books and making it halfway through a fifth is a ‘little reading’. =) Congrats on the win and thanks for hopping by my blog. I’ve yet to read Shiloh Walker’s The Missing. She has *so* many books!
