Suddenly Sunday

Suddenly Sunday is hosted by A Muse in the Fog.

I think summer has slowed things down a bit for everyone myself included. I see less posts from the blogs I follow in the summer time, the number of books coming from PBS slows down and I had to have started and put down at least 10 books in the past week alone because I can't decide what I'm in the mood for so I've been giving up the search and obsessively playing Dr. Mario on Nintendo of all things.

Still I have managed to read a few. I reviewed Catching Fire (Hunger Games Bk 2) by Suzanne Collins and my review of The Last Kingdom by Bernard Cornwell posted over at Royal Reviews on Friday.

Yesterday also marks the end of the Tudor Mania Challenge hosted by Marie at the Burton Review. I have A LOT of Tudor related fiction and non-fiction on my shelf and was able to read some good ones, although not as many as I thought (probably since I was reading books for other challenges as well).

My grand total came to 5:
I would have to say it was a toss up between King's Fool and I, Elizabeth for favorite read of the challenge. I had great fun with this challenge and with reading the reviews of the other ladies who participated.

Not sure what is coming up for this week (as I said, I can't make up my mind what to read) but hopefully I'll stumble across something utterly fantastic or get motivated to finish one of the books I've already started by never got around to finishing. I will patiently awaiting the release of The Red Queen by Philippa Gregory about Margaret Beaufort and Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins, 3rd in the Hunger Games Trilogy.

One final note: Please check out the giveaway of your choice of a signed Sandra Worth title over at Royal Reviews.

Happy reading all!

  1. Oh it's the worst not to know what you're in the mood to read! I hope something strikes your fancy soon!

    I LOVED I, Elizabeth and must go check out your review. It's a close 2nd to my favorite Elizabeth read, which is Legacy by Susan Kay.

    And if I didn't own all of Worth's books I would be over there so fast...LOVE her!

    Have a great week Holly!
