The weather is perfection today so I am getting ready to pull on the gardening gloves, turn the water for the outside faucets back on and prepare to spend the day getting down and dirty. I have ferns, some grasses and even an English Daisy or two to plant and weeds to uproot. To say the least, I am grinning like crazy in anticipation.
Also this week I am reviewing some books that are not only on Scattered Thoughts “Must Read” lists, they have made my Best of 2013 List as well. Among them are Sarah Black’s The General and the Horse-Lord, T.J. Klune’s Into This River I Drown, Abigail Roux’s Touch & Geaux and Jay Kirkpatrick’s Freedom. I can’t remember when I had so many wonderful books to read and recommend that released almost at the same time. A surfeit of riches for us all to enjoy time and time again.
And on Monday, Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words is participating along with many other websites in Riptide Publishing’s Web Hunt for Abigail Roux’s Touch & Geaux, book 7 in the amazing Cut & Run series. On April 8, 2013, all participating book blogs will be joining the party by posting about the book and including one of their favorite quotes from any book in the Cut & Run series. Readers who collect each quote and submit their findings to firstname.lastname@example.org will be eligible to win one of two runner-up prizes and one grand prize. More about this Cut & Run fun will be posted tomorrow along with my blog of Cut & Run favorite moments in the afternoon.
What a week! So here is the full schedule, don’t miss a day!
