Home / Books / Buongiorno!


Hello, blogosphere! I’m finally returned from my fantastic vacation, and I’m ready to get back into the swing of everyday life and blogging!

I had a fantastic trip in Italy and will be posting some trip details with pics later this week for those interested. (I don’t pretend to think everyone wants to know the details of my life. 🙂  But, if you ever want to travel oversees, I have some fun tips and tidbits that I want to share.)

I have a lot of reviews to catch up on! I not only finished reading The Iron King by Julie Kagawa, but I followed it up with The Iron Daughter and polished the whole trip off with Holly Black’s The White Cat. I read so much faster without a pesky day job getting in the way. 😀

Coming up this week:

  • Today– Teaser Tuesday (later tonight)
  • Tomorrow– Waiting on Wednesday
  • Thursday– Book Review: The Iron King
  • Friday– Follow Friday
  • Saturday– Trip Recap
  • Sunday– Book Review: The Iron Daughter

This schedule is subject to change depending on how much laundry I get done. And how un-jetlagged I am.

I hope everyone’s having a great week!
