I can't believe how fast this past week of Armchair BEA has gone by. 
You can read all my posts above to catch up, if you haven't read them this week.

The best day for me was giveaway day. I love giving back to you guys... I mean really, this blog would be redundant without you. It was also great visiting other blogs, new and old, and learning more about everyone. Loved the different opinions in books as well. Always nice when I find a book that interests me that I haven't heard of before... or see a book that I have been pining for and a lucky someone has managed to read it already. It's great getting someones' take on a book before I get into it too.

The huge highlight for me was winning a prize for my "Keeping It Real" post. I chose a book by Robbie Robertson titled, Legends, Icons and Rebels. Can't wait to check that book out, as you saw in my non-fiction post I really love a good memoir. Even though this says it's only part memoir... even part is good to me.

So now this ABEA is over and life will slow down again, I will get back to reading. Yes, my books have missed me terribly this week. I'm finishing, Last Train to Omaha, which I have a giveaway for as well. The I will start on Jack Templar Monster Academy. It's the second book in a Middle Grade series. What will you be reading??

Minestrone soup is one of my favorite soups that my mother-in-law makes, and since moving out of her home and into our own again, I need to figure out what went inside hers so I can make it myself.
