TTBA Weekly News and Mailbox Monday

This feature was inspired by It's Monday! What are you reading? hosted by Sheila at Book Journey and also by The Sunday Salon.


Since I'm hosting the read-a-thon this week and I'm crazy busy with that and trying to work and read...along with everything else in daily life, I'll try to make this short!

What's going on in my/the reading world....


The High Summer Read-a-Thon is going on now and it's not too late to join in.  I allow people to join in all the way up until Friday night at 11:59pm CST.  So if you find yourself with some time on your hands, why not join us! You can join the starting line HERE.


I announced this weekend that Kai at Fiction State of Mind and I are hosting the Wolf Hall read-a-long in August through September.  Actual dates are August 4 - September 15.  Visit this POST for all the details and to sign-up.


My annual Christmas in July event at my Christmas blog, The Christmas Spirit, is still going on.  If you love Christmas any time of the year, you'll want to stop by for some fun! I'm also looking for guest bloggers so if you're interested in being my guest during the event, visit the announcement post HERE and find out what all will be going on.



My friends over at Page Turner Book Tours are kicking off their first book tour for Serenya's Song by Mysti Parker.  They're hosting a great competition in conjunction with the tour launch so be sure to stop by and check it out.  You can do so HERE.

To find out what I'm reading this week, visit the read-a-thon sticky post at the top of the blog.


 Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia and is currently on tour. This month's host is Mrs. Q Book Addict.   (You can click the book covers in the BookBox to view the book(s) on Amazon)

I apologize for word verification, but I turned it off and had close to 50 spam comments within 12 hours (nobody has time for that) so I had to turn it back on. Sorry!

This blog is Award Free. I appreciate your thinking of me for an award, but please know that your comments are my award. Thank you!

  1. I'm really trying to push out review books in the next six months, making my reading calendar full. On the other hand, I REALLY want to do the Wolf Hall readalong. Those publishers won't mind if I never get around to their books, right?
