Deepest apologies for my absence. Things have been a little nutso in my corner of the world. I won't bore you with the details, but I'm back now.
To celebrate my return to the blogosphere, I'm posting a review a day for the next 6 days because, while I haven't been posting or reviewing, I have been reading. So hooray. After this week I plan on going back to posting my regular review once or twice a week plus memes.
This week's reviews will include:
Auraria by Tim Westover (Tuesday 8/21)
Guest Review: The Concubine's Gift by K. Ford K. (Wednesday 8/22)
True Believers by Kurt Anderson (Thursday 8/23)
Guest Review: Sweet Talk by Julie Garwood (Friday 8/24)
The Woman in Black by Susan Hill (Saturday 8/25)
The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson (Sunday 8/26)
As for Monday Mailbox business, it's being hosted this month by 5 Minutes for Books; in the time since I last posted, I've received two books:
The first book was Wookie the Chew by James Hance, whose website is a geek's delight.
Along with Wookie the Chew, I also purchased two prints (this one and this one...and I'm seriously considering buying this one and this one). Hance is right now running a special print "Off to Save the Princess" in an effort to save his own beautiful little princess, Madison. Madison is 7 and is suffering from a stomach ailment with too many letters in it. All proceeds of that print go to support Madison's medical/ travel expenses.
