Well, I had, and still do, plan to be better about writing this year, yet this is my first blog for 2008. I really will get into the groove of things, I promise. I have been reading, in the meantime, and have finished a few books. Below are reviews for two of them. I’m still not to the point where I’m blogging for each, but maybe someday. For today, Seduction of the Crimson Rose and When Crickets Cry–both worthy reads.
Okay, so you have to know that I never win anything! But, I WON! Author, Lauren Willig, posted a contest at her blog, and I WON an advance copy of her newest book The Seduction of the Crimson Rose! Lauren is a great new author who writes a series which is a spin off of The Scarlet Pimpernel which starts with The Secret History of the Pink Carnation. Her writing is witty and her plots are engaging; I often find myself laughing out loud as I read. I can’t wait to read this newest installment of her series. I hope to get to it over Christmas Break, but for now, it’s off to grade papers since I’ve been given the gift of a snow day to catch up. I’ll write a post about my prize when I finish it!
