Elizabeth, Robert Stephen Parry
March, Geraldine Brooks
The Lady and the Unicorn, Tracy Chevalier
The Typewriter Girl, Alison Atlee

One movie/One TV show I like right now
The Strain (FX) - wonderfully creepy
Lucy (starring Scarlet Johannsen) - deep, yet action packed
Summer break will be over next week and my older son will be a teenager in November. I have been feeling nostalgic about when my boys were little and how quickly time passes.
My divorce was final on June 17. Another chapter of my life officially closed. Moving on.
Upcoming reads at my read-a-long groups
TuesBookTalk - August's read is The Invention of Wings, Sue Monk Kidd
Lit Collective - we are reading and discussing the works of Geraldine Brooks in August
People of the Book
My upcoming events (challenges, read-a-thons, other reading events)
I just announced The Never-Ending Anne Rice Challenge! There is a dedicated blog for it HERE.
I will be hosting Gothic September at Castle Macabre again. I'm thinking of hosting a read-a-long of a Gothic novel. Just have to decide which one. Will most likely be a classic. I'm thinking Nathaniel Hawthorne. Join me for some Gothically good reading in September.
In October at Castle Macabre, Season of the Witch will be back again. A month of scary reads that might not necessarily be about witches, but then very well could.
And don't forget about the FrightFall Read-a-Thon in early October. Sign ups will be posted within the next month at Seasons of Reading.
