This great meme is hosted by Sheila at
Book Journey”.
It’s a great way to start the week and
find out what other bloggers are reading.
My To-Be-Read pile has grown to an
unbelievable number thanks to this meme.

It’s been an interesting week. I read more than I thought I would, one book really was totally different than I thought it would be. My Blogoversary giveaways ended and I received so many nice comments.  This year was very special because of my big move to WordPress in October.  It is an awesome feeling to know that people were willing to follow me around this crazy blogosphere. Next year’s event will hopefully be even better!

I am trying a different kind of giveaway to get some different readers to my blog. Small Blogs Big Giveaways has been helped me find some different blogs and hopefully others find mine.  I am still a little confused about how it all works, but I will wait until it is totally complete to evaluate.

I also joined a new group on Goodreads, Self Promo for Bloggers & Authors for the same reason, to promote my blog and find others. This group is just starting and it is nice to see some new followers from this group.

Now to recap me reading week!

Oath of Office

For Review
Release Date: February 14, 2012

This is the one that knocked me for a loop!
My review won’t be posted until Friday but the words “scary” and
“really good” are sure to be mentioned.

The Wedding Quilt: An Elm Creek Quilts Novel

I received this one from NetGalley for review. This has been one of my all time Favorite series and it is one that I challenged myself at the beginning of 2012 to catch up. The next installment is being released February 21 and I have the ARC on my shelf, but this story has left me very conflicted. My review will be posted next week. It’s going to be a hard one to write.
