And ... I'm ba-ack! it feels like I've taken another brief hiatus, but life has just been so hectic and busy lately! From prenatal classes, to midwife appointments to yoga, it just seems like I'm bouncing from one thing to the next, and not always getting enough sleep in between.
And, in other news, our laptop decided to die a sudden and unexpected death last week, which resulted in some hurried computer shopping and a unintentional move to Windows 8. The worst part is that I've lost all of my favourite bookmarked blogs ... it may be a while before I'm able to recreate the whole list, so if it's been a while since I stopped by to comment, that's why!
I have found some time to do some reading, and will have some new reviews up soon. Hopefully I can remember enough about the books to write decent reviews, since I usually write my reviews within a day or two of finishing the book. Reviews to look forward to include: Lisa Genova's Love Anthony (which I read after MEETING her -- she's amazing!), Karen Marie Moning's Faefever (which I listened to on audio), Erin Morgenstern's The Night Circus (my book club's latest pick) and Jane Green's Babyville (a recommendation from a coworker). I've just started reading Gregory David David Roberts' Shantaram, and it has taken me a week to get through the first 100 (of over 900) pages. Perhaps it's a good thing that I'm so behind on reviews; this will give you all something to read as I plow through this mammoth of a book!
And finally, the winner of my first giveaway is .... (drumroll please) .... Marijana Sitar! I've sent you a tweet and an e-mail, so let me know your mailing address as soon as possible so that I can send you your new copy of The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer.
A big thank you to all of you who stopped by my blog last month to enter my giveaway, follow my blog and share in the Something Wicked Comes event. This was my first time participating in this type of event, and I really enjoyed it! It was fun hopping around the other blogs, and seeing what everyone else was doing to participate in this event. I'm looking forward to doing another blog hop sometime soon!
