Here's a couple books I won recently.
White Seed: The Untold Story of the Lost Colony of Roanoke - Paul Clayton
I won this awesome book from Michelle over at Historical Fiction Connection. I've always been intrigued by the mysterious lost colony.
The Turning of Anne Merrick - Christine Blevins
A book about a woman who spied for Washington during the American Revolution = awesome, right? Plus it came with an extremely cool pack of stationary and candles. A big thanks to The Owl Bookmark Blog and to Christine Blevins for the giveaway. Head over to here to find a list of tours and other giveaways for this book.
The Last Storyteller - Frank Delaney
I won this beautiful Irish novel - autographed! - from Marie over at Burton Book Reviews. She told me I should definitely check out his previous novel Ireland which I just found a few days ago at the library book sale. Awesome, right! Perfect timing for St. Patrick's Day coming up.
Here's some more books I found at the library book sale (obviously I love historical fiction.)
Undaunted Courage - Stephen E. Ambrose
The Gates of the Alamo - Stephen Harrigan
Dragon's Lair - Sharon Kay Penman
Poison - Sara Poole
A Reliable Wife - Robert Goolrick
More library sale books:
The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing (audio books 1 & 2)
The Wandering Heart - Mary Malloy
Through a Glass Darkly - Karleen Koen
Can you believe I found this at the library book sale? Beautiful!
The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie - Muriel Spark (The Folio Society)
It has some pretty cool pictures too:
Since I became a mom, I have a whole new set of books that are a must-have for me.
I checked out The Healthy Baby Meal Planner at the library and it's been a must-have reference for me to man up and start making my own baby food. Super easy! I finally have a use for the Magic Bullet I bought a few years ago.
Annabel Karmel's book is by far the best baby food book I checked out. I love that there are a ton of recipes AND photos:
I bought Favorite Fairy Tales at Ross's for just six bucks and I love it. I'm not sure if Rocket will enjoy it as much as I do - but just check out the beautiful illustrations:
|Sleeping Beauty - my favorite fairy tale|
|Goldilocks and the Three Bears|
Puppies and Kittens is Rocket's favorite book - he loves animals and anything with texture.
Ok, that's all for now!!
