  1. Nice blog. I don't believe I have visited before.

    I like your nice, clean design.

    I enjoy historical fiction and mystery also.

    Going to follow if I can.


  2. Wonderful giveaway.Thanks. I enjoyed Ember Island by Kimberley Freeman. saubleb(at)gmail(dot)com

  3. I enjoyed The Weight of Blood by Laura McHugh.

  4. I really liked Mr. Loverman; by Bernardine Evaristo,

  5. This year, I really enjoyed Astonish Me by Maggie Shipstead. Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

  6. Favorite literary fiction novel? Just one? Recently: BURIAL RITES by Hannah Kent and WILDERNESS by Lance Weller. (And I've been intrigued by The Tulip Eaters since I first discovered it on Goodreads. Did you love it?) I ADORED The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry! I haven't read her new book, though. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  7. I'm with Monika - Astonish Me was wonderful. I also really enjoyed Orfeo by Richard Powers.

  8. Both sound great! Nice to met you and your blog! :)

  9. I recommend "The Bees" by Laline Paull. Amazing read.

  10. I recently read and loved The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult. Thanks for the giveaway!

  11. Everyone, check out: Promise at Dawn, by Romain Gary!!

  12. I loved The Great Lenore by J.M Tohline.

    Thanks for the amazing giveaway!

  13. The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair was very good. A bit unusual too. Thanks for the giveaway. I look forward to following you!

  14. Thanks so much for the giveaway!!!!
    -Melissa B.

  15. I've read so many good books in the last few years! Probably one of my favorite literary novels has been The Luminaries (won the Booker Prize last year).

  16. I recommend 11/22/63 by Stephen King. It is a great literary read. It is not a horror novel. Most of his recent work isn't horror. (Mr. Mercedes is actual a murder mystery.)

  17. Thanks for the chance to win! I recommend anything by Hemingway. He's a brilliant writer. Cheers!

  18. Belle Cora by Phillip Margulies:

    If short stories rock your boat - Incendiary Girls by Kodi Scheer:

  25. The Jewel in the Crown by Paul Scott. Thanks for the giveaway.

  26. I am not very creative. I enjoyed Anne of a Thousand Days.

  27. Thanks for the giveaway! The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry has been on my TBR list for some time and The Tulip Eaters looks interesting as well. I recommend The Dodecahedron by Paul Glennon.

  28. Thanks for joining the giveaway! I loved Harold Fry, great choice. The other book looks interesting too. I love books about tulips. Not in the right country, though, so I won't enter. :-)

Getting back to blogging

It seems that blogging has dropped to the bottom of my list for the past year, and was pretty low for the year or two prior to that. I love to read, and am continuing to do so, but as my regular readers know I haven't been around much. My last blog post was almost a year ago!!

There are many things that have taken me away from blogging. Work has been much more challenging and interesting these past few years, but that means I really don't want to get back on the computer when I get home at night - or on the weekends.

Family life has been more busy with kids having multiple activities in the evenings, leaving little time to just hang out and write about the books that I read.

I will admit to a bit of a Facebook addiction, which means way too much time spent scrolling through my newsfeed instead of doing something more productive. This is one of the things I'm working on and hoping that this will free up some time for getting back to the blog.

Overall, life is good. Work is …
