I started the month off strong in terms of books read, but Sapphire’s The Kid dragged on and George R.R. Martin’s A Dance with Dragons tops 1,000 pages–I’m about halfway done with it. But I’ve begun posting more pieces related to book reviewing, which I’ve enjoyed and plan on keeping up!

Reading Challenges

I only read and reviewed one book–Push–this month for my Bookshelf ROWDOWN challenge, so I’ll have to step up the pace a little more next month. There were just so many new releases I wanted to get to this month!

Giveaways

I’m hosting a giveaway this month of two books I read and reviewed, The Storm at the Door and Next to Love. They both examine very different aspects of post-World War II society in the United States. The contest ends tonight at midnight EST, so leave a comment now on either entry and you’ll be entered to win!
