Upcoming Good Reads

I thought I'd do a little post about my upcoming reads.

Nicole Galland's newest book Godiva is my next read.  The book comes out July 2nd and I've been emailing her and it looks like I'll be able to do a little interview with her.  Yippee! I fell in love with her work after reading I, Iago (my review) last year.  I also have her novel Revenge of the Rose on my shelf to read which will hopefully get read before the summer is out.  If you notice, Nicole sent me a copy and I got another copy so I'll be able to do a giveaway!

If you head over to Book Bath's blog, you'll see she's gearing up for Paris in July.  I love love this idea and for the past couple of years can't help but join in the fun.  I snagged the library book sale copy of Foreign Tongue last year in anticipation for this.  I have no clue about the author or book so we'll see.  I've also been sitting on The Paris Wife for WAY too long.  I read almost a 100 pages and loved it but somehow got sidetracked a while back.  I'll be starting over and finishing it up.  I might be biased though because I'm fascinated with Hemingway.  I adore For Whom the Bell Tolls but so far haven't loved any of his other works as much as that one.

I won this copy of Nancy Bilyeau's novel The Crown from Peeking Between the Pages. I've heard such great things about this series so when I was asked to join the TLC Book Tour for her second novel The Chalice in August I jumped!  I just DEVOURED The Crown - absolutely loved it - and am so excited they sent me a paperback copy as well. So I'll be able to do another giveaway!  Yay!

So far this has been a great summer to read.  For those of you who don't know, my toddler Rocket is about to get a little brother in just a few weeks so lately I've been having to just kick up my feet and take it easy. Which means more time to read!  This was my view from my chair yesterday:

I hope everyone else is having a great summer and enjoying their reads!  What have you been reading or looking forward to read?


  1. I just finished The Wedding Night by Sophia Kinsella and loved it. I thought she did a great job. I am now reading The Spellman Files by Lisa Lutz. So far it's awesome. Oh, and I read The Uncommon Reader which issues just a gem of a little book.

  2. The Crown and The Chalice were great reads for me. The Paris Wife was for me a bit slow going in parts. I love reading books set in France and look forward to bloggers recommendations.

  3. I got some good reading in during the last weeks of my pregnancy too. :) I am happy to report that I am still getting some reading done with a five year old and an almost two month old. There is hope, fellow mama!

    Godiva sounds fascinating - there aren't too many stories set in that time period.
