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 😉 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!
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!
