Hibernating with Books



I'm back from Charleston and knee-deep in laundry! Just to keep you all in the loop, we went with a preseasoned, 7 lb, turkey-in-a-bag, and it was de-licious! Really. I think it was the moistest, juiciest turkey I've ever had. And we didn't have to deal with seasoning it, or any of those weird turkey parts. Yahoo! I think I definitely would have missed having Thanksgiving without the turkey. And I'm definitely not a tofurkey girl.


I'll be posting pictures later on, but wanted to post about the wonderful surprises waiting for me at my post office boxes. First off, Enthusiasm came, and I am thrilled! I've read the first page (just for a little taste), and already I am loving it. Then I received an Advanced Reader Copy (a little late) of The Luxe , a tale of 1899 Manhattan by Ana Godbersen. And finally, two books from my RWA chapter pal (she sends me ARCS, and I review them for her online):
her third historical One Night With You--and if you haven't tried Sophie Jordan, I highly recommend her--and the first of her new paranormal series, Marked by Moonlight, written sans-psuedonym as Sharie Kohler.

I'll be visiting you all starting tomorrow. Right now I'm off to read the rest of Mansfield Park so I can get started on my stack of new goodies!

I can't wait to read this Sophie Jordan book. And you've put me in the mood to read Mansfield Park. I LOVE that book!
Enjoy all the reading :)

My goal in life is to find a dress like the one on the cover of Luxe...and then find a place to wear it to! :) Did I just end that sentence with a preposition? A dangling participle? Ah, well.

Glad the turkey turned out well! :)
