Hey there and happy Monday! Mondays can be happy, right? Yesterday I finally got around to going to my local library. What used to be a weekly (or more!) event has fallen by the wayside to a many-months-in-between-visits event. But, I had a great time browsing the shelves and picking up some books for both myself and the littles. As you can see by the photo, I only borrowed a few books. Yes, this is “a few” by my standards. Some good reading ahead, it looks like! One of the titles, “Much ado about Anne” is a middle grade read which ties in quite nicely with my first announcement below.
I am really excited to share that I will be participating in a *Book Blitz* for a middle grade book called “Reality Natalie” by Katie Sparks. A book blitz is a way to share and create buzz about new releases. I have an ebook copy to review and will be sharing that with you within the next 10 days or so. The book blitz is being hosted by Renee @ Mother Daughter Book Reviews. By the end, you will be able to find my review (and other participants) on Amazon and Goodreads, as well as reading it here on My Homemade Library. There are so many cool things one can participate in as a book blogger, and I like that I can showcase my joy of reading children’s books, too.
I am also thrilled to announce that I will be participating in the *New March Release Book Hop & Giveway* hosted by Lavendar Librarian and It Starts at Midnight! This will be my very first giveway on the blog and I’m so excited! As a reader of blogs, I love entering the contests and I know I’m not the only one. My favourite wins are always books and makeup. So, I think many of you will really enjoy this. The Book Hop is being hosted by Lavendar Librarian which is such a cool and fun blog. I’m excited to catch up on some new releases and share a review of one. I haven’t decided on a book yet, but that is forthcoming and I will be updating the status on the hop very soon.
