I was thrilled when Lisa, from TLC Book Tours, asked if I would host a day on the Virtual Book Tour of House and Home by Kathleen McCleary:
Being part of the tour requires I read the book, write a review and post it on 29 September. Since I get most of my book recommendations from book blogs, I love the concept of a virtual tour. The book tour will have stops on several other blogs throughout this month starting tomorrow, 3 September. Here are the links:
Wednesday, September 3rd: Hooked on Houses
Friday, September 5th: It’s All About Books
Monday, September 8th: The Literate Housewife
Wednesday, September 10th: Books and Cooks
Friday, September 12th: Breaking the Spine
Monday, September 15th: She Is Too Fond Of Books
Wednesday, September 17th: Caribou’s Mom
Thursday, September 18th: Age 30 – A Year of Books
Monday, September 22nd: Booking Mama
Tuesday, September 23rd: The Cottage Nest
Wednesday, September 24th: The Inside Cover
Friday, September 26th: In the Shadow of Mt. TBR
Monday, September 29th: Displaced Beach Bums
I finished the book last night and, so I won’t be influenced by other reviews, I’ll write my review tonight (but won’t post it until 29 Sept).
Interestingly, Books on the Brain has a Tuesday Teaser which asks you to grab your current read. Let the book fall open to a random page. Share with us two (2) sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12. You also need to share the title of the book you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
My tease is House and Home by Kathleen McCleary because I’m hoping my friends (& family) will read it before my scheduled book stop and share how they feel about the book. I’d especially love to hear what my military spouse friends think about the book. As much as we move, we don’t get a chance to “attach” to a house but I’m sure we all have something or somewhere that makes us feel like we’re “home.”
Here’s my random page from House and Home:
Page 130: “Actually, he continued, looking out the passenger window, away from Ellen, “this whole push Jordan has made to move, and ‘move up,’ has been very difficult for me. It’s made me question a lot of things.
The author, Kathleen McCleary, will answer questions so if anyone reads the book this month and wants to submit a question for her, let me know.
