I bet ya’ll thought I just decided to quit Literary Friday postings, right? I’ll be honest, I’ve felt a struggle over the past few weeks as blog life, real life, and all the things I want to do in both lives have been tugging at me. So, Literary Friday has gotten the short end of the stick 😦 SIGH.
Meanwhile…. in other news- it’s been a hashtag blessed week as my new niece is now here! She’s got ten yummy fingers and toes that I cannot wait to play “This little piggy” with. Seeing her big sister, Miss A, loving on Little A made my heart SO SO SO SO full this week. Miss A will be spending the weekend with me and we have a big weekend planned- supper at Longhorns (that gal loves her some steak and salad!), Sleeping Beauty and Lilo and Stitch, and plenty of time for arts and crafts as I found a whole tub of foam paper, animals, glitter glue and more to play with.

It’s Literary Friday- and I’m off to eat some fair food and ride the pirate ship a gajillion times! What else is happening on Literary Friday? Well, let’s check it out….. Continue reading
Last summer, when Beth Albright’s debut, THE SASSY BELLES, made Deep South Magazine’s Summer Reading List- I had a good feeling about Beth. As bookish fate would happen, I was not the only one who felt this way- I found 2 other bloggers who adore Beth and her Sassy Belles just as much! Over the past few months, as we each have read the trilogy and the follow up novella- tweets and emails have been flying back and forth over the interwebs about how much we like this character, or how this character has changed so much, or how sweet some of the scenes in the books are!

A few weeks ago, I was talking to Kristin (Always With a Book) on the phone and we got to talking about romance books. Both of us enjoy them- although Kristin is more knowledgeable than I am about the good ones! After talking to her, I began thinking about Valentine’s Day and how I wanted to work with a fellow blogger about great books to read for Valentine’s Day. Together, we have compiled a list- a great list, I think, of books to read for Valentine’s Day. Romance and romantic suspense- happy reading for Valentine’s Day! Continue reading
