What to Expect – AUGUST


You’ve probably wondered where I’ve been the last few weeks. You may even have worried that I was kidnapped or stuck in a dark room with no books (I pray I’m NEVER stuck in such a place).

Don’t worry. I am fine and I SWEAR I’VE BEEN READING! I just haven’t had the time to sit down and post my reviews because I was a tad busy with a few fun projects last month. (Click here if you want to know more about said projects ūüėČ go ahead, I know you’re curious!) I have a number of books waiting patiently to be reviewed and you can check out my Goodreads for a sneak peak. But that’s all I’m committing too at the moment!

I haven’t managed to read any of the books I have lined up the last few months, so August is all about winging it old school! Well… not all because I am participating in a review tour of Laura Lee’s Identity Theft. I definitely think my fellow reviewers should join in on the review tour! There are a number of spots still available, just click here!

I promise to get you more reviews in August! Hope your summer is going swimmingly and you have plenty of time for beach reading!



What to Expect – JANUARY

There are some exciting changes coming to Sand Between the Pages in 2015!¬† Don’t worry; you will still get plenty of book reviews.¬†¬†The new additions are designed to make the site more personal, so here is the list of changes:

1.  I am back on Twitter!  There is a new Contact page where you can find links to Twitter and my other social media sites.  This is also where authors requesting reviews can find instructions on reaching me.

2. I have big writing goals for 2015 and I will end each month with an update post on my Works-In-Progress.  This is designed to keep me motivated and give me a chance to talk writing with all of you!

3.¬† There will be a What to Expect post at the beginning of each month.¬† These posts¬†are to¬†let you know the type of¬†reviews to expect during the month.¬† I am definitely a mood/theme reader and I like to give you a heads up.¬† So, without further ado…

What to Expect – JANUARY

January.¬† Its cold, dreary, and very rainy here in Florida.¬† I am so¬†thankful that I do not live where it snows.¬† I love to watch it snow.¬† I love to ski and snow tube.¬† I do not like to be cold.¬† I can barely handle Florida’s winter!!!

We went snow skiing most Januarys of my childhood.¬†My parents¬†would pack up the old diesel Chevy Suburban and hit the road¬†to Colorado.¬† I spent these trips wrapped in my My Little Pony sleeping bag and my nose buried in a book.¬†¬†I learned during these vacations not to eat funny colored snow,¬†that I was quite a graceful skier for such a clumsy person, and that falling snow is breath taking.¬† I both loved and loathed these trips.¬† See, I don’t like being cold and snow is cold.¬† I can handle visiting but people actually CHOOSE to live in these places!!!

January finds me reminiscing about these trips and eager to read books about arctic survival.  I am enthralled by people who can tough out such extreme weather.  This is why I am so fascinated with both the Iditarod and the Yukon Quest dog sled races.  This year I am going to keep track of both of them!  (I can do stuff like that now that I am out of school)

The next two weeks will be filled with stories of arctic survival, dog sledding, and mystery.¬† I hope you’re as excited as I am!¬† Grab some hot chocolate and a good book and enjoy the falling snow if you can!
