July Book of Choice Giveaway

Open Worldwide

July Book of choice

First, congratulations to Jana Leah for winning the June Book of Choice Giveaway. Her book choice was The Black Cat Sees His Shadow by Kay Finch!

I am having a hard time grasping the fact that it is summer already! Spring saw a LOT of flu bugs in my house (right up until the first official day of summer), so I am behind in my reading (and won’t get a chance to catch up now until autumn when the boys go back to school. Until then, I’ll read when I get a chance and am hopeful to have the I Am Number Four series (the 7 original books PLUS the newly released sequel – which I pre-ordered and added to my “to read” pile at the end of June) finished by the end of August. Fingers crossed, because summer time is a very busy time for me (with virtually no “me-time”).
