- Blog Tour (& Giveaway): SPY ON HISTORY: Mary Bowser and the Civil War Spy Ring
- Caraval: A Chick Lit Wednesday Review
This week I had an unexpected four day weekend thanks to the snowstorm.
View from the back door this afternoon. Very happy I had a snow day. I spent the day finishing my reread of The King of Attolia and starting A Conspiracy of Kings. I've been rereading all of Megan Whalen Turner's Queen's Thief series back to back this month and it has been an excellent decision. I love the series and I think if I had to choose only one series of books to read for the rest of my life it would probably be this one. I'm hoping more people will find it and love it after Thick as Thieves comes out so I have more people to talk to about it. Were you in the path of the snow storm today? How did you spend your Thursday? #newyork #ny1snow #snow #winter #weather #snowday
I spent a lot of it doing laundry, cooking, listing things on eBay and Amazon, and re-reading Megan Whalen Turner books.
Here’s my latest from Instagram:
#bookmail today from Macmillan and Tor (bottom book). I was having a high anxiety day because I started preparing my taxes so it was nice to have some fun mail this week. (I also got several letters and postcards but of course those came right as I ran out of stamps!) I'm very excited about all of these but especially I Believe in a Thing Called Love. After reading A Week of Mondays last year I'm also thrilled to get to read Jessica Brody's newest In Real Life a bit early. I think these and some of my other 2017 ARCs will be fun to jump into after I finish my Queen's Thief re-read (almost time to dive into Thick As Thieves–the newest book) and I can't wait to see what happens next. #bookstagram #bookishfeatures #goodreads #instabook #instareads #igreads #bibliophile #books #reading #currentlyreading #amreading #bookworm #bookish #bookgram #booktography #bookblogging #bookblogger #bookphotography #book
Cookies for days. Making these for my office for Valentine's Day because the odds of finding punny valentines for the third year in a row seems slim. Also have some set aside for my committee meeting because I am a thoughtful committee chair. I've learned that the best way to get pink cookies is by adding less red food coloring. My attempt to get pink as per the box directions led to an exciting batch of purple heart cookies (not shown). #baking #cookies #valentines #valentinesday #hearts #red #pink #sweets #dessert #food #latergram #nofilter
