Weekly Link Round-Up

February 22, 2009

roundup2

Here are some blogs and posts I want to highlight this week.  (Some of these links are part of a link-sharing group started by Amy of My Friend Amy.)

Discussions

The Literate Housewife did a great post on historical fiction.  She reminds us that it is fiction, after all.  Some of the comments are great, too.

Reviews

After reading My Friend Amy’s great review of  Winter in Madrid, by C. J. Sansom, I added to my wish list.  She said she, “very much enjoyed this book”  and is glad that she read it.

Beth Fish Reads says that More Home Cooking, by Laurie Colwin,  “touches on the link between food and those we love and food and memories.”

The Sonnets by Warwick Collins “truly feels as if it is a snapshot of Shakespeare’s life” according to Devourer of Books.  If you’re into historical fiction, this sounds like a book you should check out.

Wendi’s Book Corner says Confetti Cakes for Kids is “a great book for anyone, from novice to expert.”  This book is also a lot of fun to look at.

While My Sister Sleeps by Barbara Delinsky is going on Marta’s Meanderings list of favorite books of all time.  She just loved this book.

Just For Fun

The last few weeks, Write For A Reader has had some great author interviews.  This week, she turned the tables and posted an interview of  herself.  Check it out to see what makes her tick.

It’s almost time for the Diagram Prize for Oddest Book Title of the Year and Literary License has the scoop on this year’s nominees.

Giveaway

Hey Lady! Whatcha Readin’? is giving away two Slankets!  I don’t think you should enter, though, because that would diminish my chances of winning.  Okay, go ahead and enter, but remember me if you win!

    I actually saw some of these this week! Woo-hoo! I thought Wendi’s cake was amazing … I’m going to have to try that for my son’s next birthday.

    But I’m itching to see the one on the oddest book titles … sounds intriguing!

    I like this feature you’re doing. Last week you mentioned a post on Chris’ site about oversaturation of certain authors books. I would’ve missed it if it weren’t for you! Enjoy your Sunday!

    One of these days I’m going to actually encounter a good discussion post and actually participate in the discussion before it’s days old and in the link round-up. *sigh* But then, that might actually demand keeping up with the posts in my feed reader (at the very least). *heavier sigh* Oh well, I guess it’s still rather interesting to read them even after most opinions have already been stated!

    Looks like I missed a lot this week while I was away from the computer!

    Great links! You picked some of my favorites from my Google Reader this week and some I haven’t heard of yet. 🙂 Off to enter for the slanket!

    Winter in Madrid looks fantastic. I cannot wait to read this one!
