Hello everyone and Happy August reading!!
July was hectic yet enjoyable and August will be no different. This month I am also taking part in the Longbourn to London Blog Tour, kindly brought to you by Jakki at Leatherbound Reviews in conjunction with Meryton Press, how exciting! Join me on the 26th August for a guest post by author Linda Beutler including a book giveaway!!
As some of you know I went to Cyprus for my brother in law's wedding, which was wonderful and when we got back to England the fun continued with another wedding reception for everyone who could not attend.
I am in my first week of August and already Mr Darcy and I have hosted our niece's 2nd birthday party at our house and been to a theme park. This week I also received signed copies of the Young Knights Quest Series by P.O.Dixon and Stronger Even Than Pride by Gail McEwen, both of which were won in giveaways!!! I cannot begin to explain my elation on receiving them, my smile could not have been any wider. My love of books continues and in this first week of August I have already purchased ten books!
I am going to spend a week with my dear father at his home on the coast of Eastbourne just down the road from Brighton, so will probably pop there for the day and hope not to run into Wickham!! I am also visiting family in London and taking a trip to my favourite park Hamstead heath, home to Kenwood House, only this time my eyes have been opened to the fact that Dido Elizabeth Belle once resided there, which will make the trip all the more special.
Finally and the reason it has taken me a week to get my post done. I am getting married next year and have been busy making preparations. After 19 years together and twelve years engaged, we have finally decided to be selfish and put ourselves first for a change. I am so excited because this time next year I will be officially married to my Mr Darcy on a beautiful beach in St Lucia. Whoop Whoop!!!

Okay enough about my personal life, first things first, how very remiss of me, I will be posting my Review of A Matter of Chance By L.L.Diamond this week, which I thoroughly enjoyed.
Then I will be reading and reviewing...
Hope & Sensibility - P.O.Dixon (I cannot wait to meet Ben again!)
My non-Austenesque Invite to the ball this month is The Fortune Hunter by Diane Farr.
I hope you have some great reads lined up!!! As always I delight in hearing what you'll be reading this month.
