I started out the year by reading books for book tours as I found I had scheduled six books in January alone and three more in February. So I am on a reading frenzy at the moment to keep up. So far, I have finished writing reviews for four of the books.
Reviews for Short Leash, My Mother's Funeral and A Different Sun will be published in the next two weeks, starting tomorrow. I have just begun reading While We Were Watching Downton Abbey and will finish up with Last Train to Paris.
A few books trickled into the mailbox whenever the mailman came during the sometimes Level 3 snow emergencies we had last week.
I got this new edition of What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty, (see my 2011 review) plus a canvas tote bag with the imprint of the cover of The Husband's Secret. I believe these were a contest win.
Three cozy mysteries came, thanks to Penguin:
Poison at the PTA by Laura Alden: As the Tarver Elementary School PTA president, Beth Kennedy is always on the go—especially when someone puts murder on the agenda.
Throw in the Trowel by Kate Collins: The couple that sleuths together . Flower Shop owner Abby Knight has just returned from a romantic honeymoon with Marco, the man of her dreams. But when Marco discovers a skeleton buried in the basement of his bar, it is a bit of a mood killer. When the body is identified as a carpenter who went missing back in the 1970s, Abby and Marco decide to cultivate the clues to solve the cold case.
What are you reading this week, for a tour, for entertainment, information, or...? Do you think that if you had book tours scheduled for all your TBR books, you'd read much faster?
