November: A Month in Review on WildlyRead

November in Review

Well, only six book-related posts this month, as opposed to October’s eight, but that’s still more than one a week, so bully for me! And now, a round-up of those posts for the month of November:

Enjoy!

Last Week on WildlyRead

Last week, 9/27-10/03/2015, was a record-breaking week for the number of blog posts I was able to write – hooray! All of them were on my book blog, WildlyRead, and covered favorite books like Alice in Wonderland, talked about gorgeous new releases, and gave a preview of what I’m looking forward to reading this month. Check them out!

On WildlyRead: Book Review: Lulu’s Mysterious Mission by Judith Viorst (and a new release!)

lulu's mysterious missionSometimes I have the opportunity to read books at work. It’s the most amazing thing, to not be actively managing a bookstore or department of a bookstore and yet still work in a bookstore. It means I get to do fun things like manage the store’s Facebook account and review books while on the sales floor without the added pressure of  a million other tasks required to be done at the same time. That was the excitement for today – discovering and reading the third book in Judith Viorst’s Lulu series, Lulu’s Mysterious Mission. For a full review and a recommendation for a new release coming out tomorrow, check out the full post on WildlyRead.

On WildlyRead: June New Releases

March 17 on WildyRead & WildlyTraveled

I’m bringing back blogging with a bang on my WildlyLived websites with THREE new posts today!

First, on WildlyTraveled, you can read my mother’s story on Pink Pangea about that time she was treated to an unexpected Bororo delicacy in Brazil.

Then on WildlyRead, you can read about a book releasing today: Prudence, the first book in Gail Carriger’s new series!

Lastly, enjoy my #booknerd tendencies in my choice of St. Patrick’s Day attire for today. Happy luck o’ the Irish to you all, today, Irish or not!

On WildlyRead: Audio Book Review: Robin Hood by David B. Coe, Read by Robin Sachs

Robin Hood.David Coe.Robin SachsI’ve started listening to audiobooks again, thanks to my longish commute (20-40 minutes one-way, without traffic). Why I chose to start with this book, I don’t know, but the gist is, unless you love deep, gravelly voices reading to you in English, Scottish, and Welsh accents, skip it. Read more on WildlyRead to understand why.
