Saturday Stuff -- 8/22

Good morning! This has been a slow reading week for me. I am currently reading 3 books (Dancing with Ana by Nicole Barker, Destined for an Early Grave by Jeanienne Frost, and Julie and Julia by Julie Powell) but I can not seem to finish anything!

I reviewed No One You Know by Michelle Richmond this week. This was my library book club's selection and our meeting was Monday. We even spoke to the author herself. She was wonderful and gave us a lot of information about how she wrote the book. My mom absolutely loved this book and we both recommend anyone who enjoys a character driven mystery to check it out.

In other news, Barney's Online Book Club's discussion of Julie and Julia by Julie Powell is next Sunday (August 30th). This should be a fantastic discussion and I invite anyone who has read the book to join us next Sunday. The more the merrier!

Also, this week the BBAW nominations were announced and I was very lucky to be nominated for 4 awards (Best New Blog, Most Concise Blog, Best Literary Fiction Blog, and Best Book Club Blog). Thanks so much to the bloggers who nominated me. I am thrilled!

Okay, so I am off to try and finish a book and enjoy my Saturday. I hope you have a great day as well!

I have those weeks where I can't seem to get a book finished, then the weekend comes and I finish a bunch. Hope you have a great weekend.

Congrats on the BBAW nominations!
