Giveaway: Win One of These Best Sellers

I am so excited! I've been given the opportunity to give away two of my favorite books from 2014! Both are out in paperback this Spring so Penguin is offering one of each to my readers. How cool is that?!

Since there are two books, I'm setting up two Rafflecopters for two separate giveaways. Be sure to sign up for the giveaway that most interests you ~ or both if you're interested in both books, which you should be. They're amazing!

These giveaways are only open to U.S. addresses. I apologize to my long-term readers who live in other areas around the world. I'll host another giveaway soon for all of you!

  1. Hmmmm, I may have to add these to my summer reading list.

    1. Definitely do so! They are both very good.One Plus One is a much lighter read, but I loved them both.

    2. Oh yeah it probably would be! The other one has that Oprah "O" on it - pretty much a guarantee that it's going to be super depressing!!!! (I entered for both anyway...of course). :-)

    3. Hahahaha! Good point about the big O. And yes, it's a typical Oprah storyline, but I loved the characters.

  2. Tweeted your giveaway. These both look like great books!

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 …

Banned Books Week: Junie B. Jones by Barbara Park

This is the end of Banned Books Week and unfortunately, I haven't had a lot of time to write about banned books this year. But I did want to include at least one post about it, so today I wanted to share one of the book series that it seems most people are surprised to find on the list: Junie B. Jones by Barbara Park.

According to Wikipedia:
The Junie B. Jones series came in at #71 on the American Library Association's list of the Top 100 Banned or Challenged Books from 2000-2009. Reasons cited are poor social values taught by the books and Junie B. Jones not being considered a good role model due to her mouthiness and bad spelling/grammar. This is an interesting example of a banned book. Many times there are serious, controversial topics featured in books that are challenged. Things like homosexuality, drugs, vulgar language, etc. You can actually understand why people may not want their children to read those books, and why they may challenge their inclusion in school libra…

April Reading Review

Where exactly did April go? I swear it was just the middle of March and now it's May. Once again, I'm going to provide a quick review of each of the books I read last month. For the last two weeks of the month, I participated in the Spring Into Horror Readathon hosted by Michelle at Seasons of Reading. The only rule was that you had to read at least one book that was horror, thriller, etc. I read one book that qualified. With the exception of the first book in my list, the books I mention below were read during the readathon

My book club's May selection was Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson. I had started reading this nonfiction book about the author's work representing men, women and children who were on death row in March but finished the book in April. This is an eye-opening story that everyone at my book club discussion agreed should be required reading for law schools and police officers and even legislators who are making the laws related to judgements. I learned to…
