Literary Friday ya’ll…

Friday. YES!

My brother is in Washington DC today- a little road trip planned with a friend. He reports that it’s quite cold in our nations capitol.

Other #literaryfriday news:

1. Deep South Mag has their weekly #literaryfriday- as always it’s quite good. Talk of Kevin Bacon’s new show The Following and it’s Edgar Allan Poe connection, Gone Girl (the movie) may have found a director, and much more!

Today was also the day of the Amy Hill Hearth chat on Twitter (sorry I did not post blog before it happened!) If you want to know more about her, please read the interview that Deep South Magazine posted. Also, look for #southernlit on Twitter to see some of the talk!

2. My #fridayreads is Me Before You by JoJo Moyes and Gods of Mischief:My Undercover Vendetta to Take Down the Vagos Outlaw Motorcycle Gang by George Rowe. Both are good- and at opposite ends of the book world! Me Before You has already made several books lists and is creating quite a buzz. Look for Gods of Mischief (Touchstone Publishing) in February!

3. Had a lovely book weekend last weekend. Met with some ladies- spent the entire weekend discussing books and things (look for a blog post ASAP). While on my book weekend, I bought 2 books from Lemuria Bookstore- Deep South by Nevada Barr and Heartsick by Chelsea Cain. Any thoughts on these?

4. I should have my chick lit fan club card revoked for this: I saw a Madeline Wickham book on the bargain book table at Barnes and Noble- and upon first glance I thought it said “by Sophie Kinsella and Madeline Wickham”, but it turns out- they are the same person, which I did not know. Silly me. #pleasedonttakemychicklitfancardaway

5. Oh and my copy of Kinsey and Me by Sue Grafton arrived this week. Guess who’s tap dancing around the house? This girl, that’s who!

Happy Reading- wherever you are!

It’s the first Friday of 2013! How are your resolutions going? What fantastic books have you found to read? Seeing a lot of chatter about Me Before You– anyone reading that? I’m wanting to read The One I Left Behind by Jennifer McMahon- anyone picked that book to read yet?

1. Deep South Magazine is back after a holiday break from #literaryfriday- so be sure to check out the news about upcoming Twitter chats, Nicholas Sparks and John Grisham make a certain list of bestsellers, and literary insults (among other things!)

2. Cozy Mystery Book Reviews is hosting 31 days of giveaways- be sure and check them out each day for a new book to win!

3.My #fridayreads is A Deal to Die For (Good Buy Girls) by Josie Belle (aka Jenn McKinlay). It’ll be the 2nd book I’m reading in the Cruisin’ Thru The Cozies Reading Challenge 2013.

4. The first book I read in 2013 is Mobbed by Carol Higgins Clark.


So, what books are you reading this weekend? What book is being released soon that you are just too excited to read? (Mine is Kinsey and Me by Sue Grafton!)
