It’s a chance to share News. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.
It’s been a hectic week and I managed to miss queuing some posts so my apologies for no Top 10 Tuesday this week. Oops.
For those of you that read about Ruby last week I have sad news. Little Ruby is no longer with us. She became ill suddenly and on Tuesday we learned she had contracted Parvovirus while in the animal control facility. I could probably write an entire blog post about how much I’ll miss her because we bonded so well but I will refrain. :(
In other, less depressing news, I have finally located my desk under the mountain of Random Things that had been attacking it for so long and I am proud to report that I type this from a clean and organized desk space (for now anyway).
POSTS FROM THIS WEEK
- Last Week’s Sunday Post
- GIVEAWAY: The Ice Cream Queen of Orchard Street
- Wishlist Wednesday

Don’t forget about my giveaway! I’m giving away two more copies of The Ice Cream Queen of Orchard Street!
Due to a clerical error with the publishing house they sent me ten copies instead of one and asked that I distribute them amongst people that would be interested in reading it so here I am.
As I mentioned in my Sunday Post last week I purchased The Hurricane Sister’s by Dorothea Benton Frank and began reading it while I wait for my copy of Brutal Youth to arrive.
So far, I am really enjoying it but I haven’t had much reading time this week. I’ve gotten maybe 50-75 pages of it read but I am very intrigued with it so far. The family in this book is both comical and sad so far which makes for a very realistic characterization. They remind me of my own family!
PHOTO OF THE WEEK
This was the last photo I got of Ruby. :( She was already feeling the beginnings of being sick here we just weren’t aware of it yet. I thought she was just being an adorable little sleepyhead that didn’t want to wake up yet. Love and miss you, baby girl.
