The Sunday Post AKA What’s On My (Mostly Vitual) Nightstand? 2-10-13

Just like yesterday’s Stacking the Shelves post, this particular Sunday Post is going to be on the short and hopefully sweet side.

I’ve got strep throat, and I pretty much feel like crap on toast. The only people happy about this development are the cats. I make a much better heat source with a fever of 102°.

(Yes, I’ve been to a doctor, it really is strep, I’m taking antibiotics, and the fever is coming down. I’ll be back in the office, no longer contagious and mostly human on Tuesday. Meanwhile, I’m sick as the proverbial canine. And why is it dogs in that idiom, anyway?)

But what happened this week that was much more fun?

There’s still plenty of time to take a ride on The Great Steampunk Romance Airship Tour, sponsored by The Galaxy Express. The Tour stopped here at Reading Reality on February 5, but do check out the tour schedule at TGE to discover all the marvelous places you can go and climb aboard.

The full (very full in fact) schedule for last week:

A- Review: Silent Vows by Catherine Bybee
Guest Post by Author Catherine Bybee + Giveaway
Guest post: The Great Steampunk Romance Airship Tour + Giveaway
B Review: Redeeming Vows by Catherine Bybee
B+ Review: Treacherous Temptations by Victoria Vane + Giveaway
Guest Post by Victoria Vane + Giveaway
B+ Review: The Slayer by Theresa Meyers
Stacking the Shelves (33)

And all the giveaways are still open except Catherine Bybee’s. So you still have time to get in the running for some terrific books!

Speaking of getting in on the ground floor for some fantastic books, what about this week? I have two events scheduled this week.

Monday, February 11, will be the first day of the Celebrating Saint Valentine Blog Hop, sponsored by Reading Romances. Since this hop is celebrating Valentine’s Day, it will run through the Valentine’s Day weekend. Reading Reality will be giving a $10 Amazon Gift Card as a prize (pick your own fantastic books) But there are over 60 authors and bloggers participating. LOTS of fantastic books and prizes to chose from!

On Tuesday, I’ll be reviewing Lady in Deed by Ann Montclair as part of a tour from Goddess Fish. Interesting historical romance from the Henry VIII period, not one that often gets used in historical romance, so it was a nice change-of-pace. There is a tourwide giveaway with this one.

And for the rest of the week, a couple of surprises. I did want to review one of the steampunk books from The Great Steampunk Romance Airship Tour before the tour ended, so I’ll be reviewing Heather Massey’s own Iron Guns, Blazing Hearts.

I also treated myself this weekend. I re-read an old favorite in honor of the determination that those bones they discovered under a Leicester car-park really do belong to Richard III. I was more than pleased to discover that Josephine Tey’s The Daughter of Time still holds up to the bright spot it has kept in my memory.
