I hope you’ve all had a fantastic week. Here are a few of the great things that have been happening this past week around the book blogs.
Do you need to run out and get a last minute Mother’s Day gift? Think about checking out Beth’s review of “Not Becoming My Mother” first. Beth describes not only the story of Ruth’s mother, but also how it related to that of her own mother for quite a moving Mother’s Day post.
Next week is Children’s Book Week and Shelly is going to be celebrating in style. Be sure to click over and find out what she’ll be doing, you’ll want to be checking back next week.
Carrie is continuing her series of favorites in a genre this week with books about books and writing. There’s some great stuff on this list, you’ll want to make sure you have your wishlist handy when you read it.
Have you been reading Follow the Reader? If not, I highly recommend you start. This week they have a very sweet post about remembering reading mentors.
Do you rate your books, or just review? Go over to Lisa’s post and weigh in on whether or not you like to see ratings in book reviews. Just a forewarning, this topic generated a LOT of discussion.
Soooo many giveaways this week! Swapna has a giveaway running right now in honor of Asian-American Heritage Month. Five people will each win five books, so this is a big one. Amy is also giving away the same books to the same number of people – so many opportunities to win!
Do you or someone in your life have Celiac’s or another reason to cut gluten from your diet? If so, you’ll want to check out Alyce’s giveaway of “The G-Free Diet.”
I also have two historical fiction giveaways to tell you about. Amy has a copy of “Royal Harlot” to give away by May 19th and All Things Royal has a copy of “In The Shadow of Lady Jane” to give away by the 15th.
Have a great week, and good blog reading!
