Suddenly Sunday

It's time once again for Suddenly Sunday, a weekly meme hosted by Svea at Muse in the Fog that provides bloggers with the opportunity to share their blogging events from the past week. 

I had another good blogging week, keeping my with New Year's resolution to blog more often.   In addition to my meme posts, I posted the following two reviews (click on the titles to read my review):

- The Midwife's Tale by Sam Thomas; and

- Mrs. Lincoln's Dressmaker by Jennifer Chiaverini. 

Reading-wise, I finished D.L. Bogdan's newest novel, The Forgotten Queen, as well as V.E. Ulett's Captain Blackwell's Prize.   I'll post reviews for both this coming week.   Although almost all of the reading I've done so far this year has been for books I've received for review,  I did start Susanna Kearsley's latest release, The Firebird, last week.   This novel, which I purchased for myself, is one of my most anticipated reads of 2013.   I'm happy to say that so far it is living up to my expectations.  I only wish that I could devote all my reading time to it.    I'm also reading, for review, Mistress to the Crown by Isolde Martyn and A Tainted Dwan: The Great War Book One by B.N. Peacock.  I'm really excited about this last novel as I love Age of Sail tales!  

What are you reading right now?  


  1. Sssshhhhhh....I'll let you in on a little secret. I could not possibly wait for the June release of The Firebird here in the US. No way. So I paid a bit more (but it's worth it) and ordered a copy from the UK. Just got it this week and I am DYING to start it. It will be my top priority this week. I won't blog about it, though, until it's release here. Yay! Hope you continue to enjoy it! :)

    1. I did the exact same thing, Joanne. The Canadian edition won't be out until the end of April and I just couldn't wait knowing it was available in the UK.

    2. Great minds think alike. ;)

  2. Well done on keeping up with your blogging! That was one of my resolutions for 2013 as well. I can't wait to read The Forgotten Queen; I absolutely loved her last book. I'll be looking forward to your thoughts on Mistress to the Crown. I just downloaded it on Netgally and I am quite curious about it. Have a great week!
