(Yeah, I know; the title of this post... What can I say? I have a SuperToddler. We watch "A Claymation Christmas" A LOT around here. A LOT.)
The Dragons of Chiril
by Donita K. Paul
Did YOU know that there is now a Christian Fantasy subgenre?! Because this was a new one on me. Last I knew, the Evangelical community--and therefore their publishers--were still heavily frowning on this sort of thing, denouncing Harry Potter, all his pomp and all his works. But it exists now, and has for a while, and this book will be my first foray into it. Good or bad, it should at the very least be INTERESTING.
The Magic Room: A Story About the Love We Wish for Our Daughters (ARC)
by Jeffrey Zaslow
The eponymous "magic room" here is the fitting room at a bridal gown shop. I'm hoping this one will be a nice, fluffy read, and informative, since I definitely did not have the cash--or the patience--to go that route for my own wedding.
Yes, I won a HUGE giveaway this week, and am REALLY excited about it! Maria Grazia at Fly High held a giveaway of Katherine Ashe's four-volume historical fiction series about Simon de Montfort, a collossal figure in medieval English history, and I WON! I LOVE books about medieval England, fiction, non-fiction and everything in between, so I was thrilled to find out I'd won these, and my Kindle got four books richer, which is ALWAYS a good thing.
So, the rest of my week kind of sucked, but my Inbox had a stellar time of it, which perked my own days up considerably. Hope yours filled up, too!
