The Sunday Salon -- Happy Mother's Day and Other Things

Happy Mother's Day to all you mothers out there! This is one of those rare and special times when we share Mother's Day with Mexico! (It's always May 10 there) So I anticipate more Swine Flu in the next few weeks...just kidding! ;)

I hope that you all have a special day planned. I am going to an open house for the college graduation of an old family friend. I can't believe how old and grown-up she is! But I'm happy for her and of course very proud.

While I don't participate in Mailbox Monday, I got this book that has the cutest cover and I just had to share! I will also have a giveaway of it sometime soon...so stay tuned. This is a book about vampires and such during World War II. Sounds fantastic to me!



Just a reminder that this week I'll be participating in By the Chapter with Marcia of the Printed Page. We'll be reading The Reincarnationist by M.J. Rose. We are doing things a bit differently...Marcia will be posting Monday, I'll be posting Wednesday and then we'll both post Friday. Can't wait!

I guess that's all! If I have time today, I hope to finally dive into A Passion Denied! I've been trying to save it for when I have some uninterrupted reading time and I think that will finally be today! I've been eagerly anticipating this book! :) The week of May 20-24 we'll be celebrating the book big time around here...can't wait to show you what's planned!

Have a wonderful day all!

I received Bloody Good, too. I just couldn't turn that one down. It looks like a fun read.

So jealous about A PASSION DENIED. My copy hasn't come yet!

Hey there! Happy Day to you! I'll have to check out the chapter-by-chapter post as I have not read that book yet.

That is a cute cover! A vampire book set during World War II . . . Now that sounds interesting.

I was hoping to join you in reading The Reincarnationist, but it doesn't look like I will be able to. I am really disappointed about that. I do plan to check in though with both you and Marcia for the discussion though.

I hope you have a great week, Amy. Enjoy the open house.

That is a cute cover! And I really like the sound of the book.

Amy said...

Anna..I agree! I hope we enjoy it!

Meghan.....I hope you are liking it so far!

Julie...maybe double check with the publicist? I love how I just get sucked into her books so fast!

Ti..I hope you do!

Thanks Wendy, the open house was very nice. I'm sorry you couldn't join us for the Reincarnationist but I understand.

Nymeth...me too! :)
