Today, I am again taking part in THE SUNDAY POST from The Caffeinated Reviewer. It’s a great opportunity to meet up with new, and old readers, and other bloggers! After you hang out here a while, I hope you’ll check out THE CAFFEINATED REVIEWER ‘s link up.
Between working on house and or gardening projects, painting (art), friend and relatives passing away, Pilates, and mechanical issues with my auto, I have not had much time to hang out online this week. Therefore, I have plenty of nothing to relate! We did sit outside on Wednesday night for a while after the sky cleared and saw some spectacular views of the Milky Way and three shooting stars (The Pleiades). I got copies of several new books including Delilah S. Dawson’s new AFTER MIDNIGHT Novella, Molly Harper’s THE SINGLE UNDEAD MOM’S CLUB, as well as several I did not request and will probably not read.
Here’s what happened on my blog this past week.
What else can one use to show a book about a family steeped in Bourbon and horse racing?
War and Gossip are two themes in this story. Both ruin lives. I think the women whispering to each other here look particularly mischievous.
This book takes place in the Manhattan of the late 1930s: A heady time post-recession and prewar. I looked for images from the period and location.
This story revolves around the themes I used for my banner: A liberal arts college, MOBY DICK and Baseball.
I used this same image for the author’s guest post this past June.
