Winners of Refer A Book Weekend and Signed Book Giveaway!

Congrats to Kelly @ The Novel Bookworm who recommended...The Sweet Potato Queens' First Big-Ass Novel: Stuff We Didn't Actually Do, But Could Have, And May Yet, by Jill Connor and I can't remember the other author...just the title alone will make you laugh!

I think they've written a couple more, but I haven't read them.

Also, any of Strohmeyer's Bubbles books, Bubbles in Trouble, Bubbles Abroad, etc., never fail to make me snicker.

I picked The Sweet Potato Queens it is probably the third time someone has recommend it. Every time I came close to picking it so I went for it this time.

Thank you to
Book Bird Dog who said...

If you like thrillers in a rustic setting, no blood or gore, try Killer Summer, which I just reviewed. It's on the front page of http://www.bookbirddog.blogspot.com At least you might enjoy the summary and comments. Sorry about your feet. Good excuse to read.

I do want to read one of Ridley Pearson adult novel because I have read some of his kids fiction and liked it. This one didn't really grab me though.



Thank you to Liyana said... Eyes Like Stars by Lisa Mantchev. It's one of the most delightful books I've ever read. Here's my review: http://liveandbreathesmexily.blogspot.com/2009/06/eyes-like-stars-theatre-illuminata-act.html

Ignore the gushiness, but it truly is an amazingly light hearted book. :D

I have heard good things about this book and it is right up my alley but I went with something else this time maybe next time.


Thank you to... Quacky the Ballads Duck said...No need to really enter me. Just wanted to suggest a book that isn't out yet...reading it now, so great. Ballads of Suburbia by Stephanie Kuehnert. Pre-order it now and you could win big. Check the blog.

Thank you for stopping by I had never heard of this one it look interesting. Not normally something I read but sometimes I break out. So far I see good reviews of this one though.



Thank you to Llehn said... I would like to recommend The Actor and The Housewife by Shannon Hale because it is such a lovely fantasy and will make you forget about your own life for a while.

As I said of the Ridley Pearson novel above I would love to read one Shannon Hale adult works and this one sounds good. Maybe next time.


Thank you to Dawn M. said...Have you tried any of the Stephanie Plum books by Janet Evanovich? She's a fly-by-the-seat-of-her-pants bounty hunter and gets herself into all kinds of outrageous trouble & messes. You can't help but laugh and be grateful that it's her crazy life and not yours. She always has me rolling on the floor laughing. *grin* The first book is One For The Money.

I have not tried any of Evanovich novels. I might one day. I am not sure yet.


Thank everybody for playing
