I am in full pouting mode, Emma does not have a patch on me right now! I am sure I should be scolded for such behaviour, but my reading time has suffered considerably and I shall tolerate it no further !!
The flu, starting back at University and arranging the flights, accommodation and guest list for my wedding has taken its toll.
The fact that my reading has gone out of the window is not lost on me, it is my retreat from the stresses of life and any lack of reading that follows in the same vein as of recent, is not to be born!!!! Hence October is operation “I need to read” as Confueius once said “no matter how busy you may think you are you must find time for reading or surrender yourself to self-chosen ignorance” I think that is all I need to say on the matter. J
I did get some reading done as you will note by my review of Pride and Persistence, which I might add had me grinning from ear to ear.
I am going to use this month to catch up on my reading and reviews but have a few treats in the meantime. On the 28th October I will be interviewing the lovely Alexa Adams, who will be giving away 2 copies of her new book The Madness of Mr Darcy, which I am currently reading!
Also look out for my review of Compass North on the 12th which was my September invite to the ball.
I have also put together a little Pride and Prejudice voting fun called 'The Darcylicious Awards', which I will post on the 19th October. I will be taking votes here, on Twitter and over at Mr Darcy’s extensive readers and will announce the results at the end of the month.
Lastly on the 27th October The Boots to Backpack Blog tour begins, it runs until the 7th Nov and as soon as I have more details I will add them to my blog.
Boots and Backpacks by K C Kahler
William Darcy counts down the last few months to his 30th birthday with dread. Orphaned as a child, his parents’ will includes a bizarre clause: Darcy must get married by his 30th birthday in order to inherit the family fortune. To make matters worse, the press knows about this deadline, as do the hordes of women chasing him in the hopes of becoming Mrs. Darcy. His family legacy hangs in the balance, but Darcy has little faith in the fairer sex. Will he find a woman he wants to marry, and quickly?
Elizabeth Bennet is determined to pursue her education and career without letting a man get in the way. When her traveling companion drops out, her planned hike on the Appalachian Trial is jeopardized. She meets the spoiled, snobby William Darcy just when he is desperate to escape the spotlight. No one will suspect that the Prince of Manhattan has gone backpacking! Darcy and Elizabeth form a tenuous partnership and begin a 300-mile journey that will transform them both.
In classic romantic comedy tradition, Boots & Backpacks follows our reluctant partners as they build trust, friendship, and even more. Six weeks together on America’s most famous hiking trail may turn out to be just what these two need!
I hope you have had a great September of reading and continue to do so into month of October!
