Suddenly Sunday

Since The Sunday Salon is closed to new members, I have created own weekly event of Suddenly Sunday! Feel free to join in the fun, just link back to this blog :)
-----
Good Morning everyone! I hope you all had a great week. After looking at the calender, I have come to the conclusion that this will be my last quiet weekend with my husband and daughter for about a month, since the next four weekends are filled with family coming in from out of town. Hmmm...I guess I will have to stay up a little later during the week to read :)


This past week I was able to post my reviews for two novels: 
I absolutely loved reading The Scarlet Lion. At one point (not going to spoil it & say where) I found myself so teary-eyed that I could not see the words!


I have been waiting all year for the last season of the Tudors on Showtime, and it is almost here! They have just released the season 4 trailer and it looks like it might be one of the best seasons yet.

If you want to catch up on previous seasons, Showtime is airing encore episodes Sunday nights at 8 PM.


A new feature I have added to my blog is a Top Commenter Widget; I am enjoying seeing who makes it to the top five every week :) Also I have created a button for my blog which you can find on the right hand sidebar.


If you have not heard yet, I have a wonderful and exciting new giveaway going on. The very generous and talented Michelle Moran has offered to give one lucky winner an autographed copy of Cleopatra's Daughter and one authentic Roman coin! You can enter in the giveaway here:  Cleopatra's Daughter & Roman Coin Giveaway.


Have a great week everyone & happy reading!

I never did get into the show for the Tudors, I saw it once flipping channels and was not impressed. I think if I had seen it from the beginning it would be different, of course.
I don't have Showtime anymore so that's out.
Thanks for commenting on my Salon post, I forgot about the Suddenly Sunday meme but I'll try to add it to the next Sunday post and link yout too. And looking forward to the reading grouup too!! Glad to see you are participating as well, it should be fun.

Good morning, everyone! It certainly is "Suddenly Sunday!" Where did the week go?

I have lots of catching up to do on The Tudors; season 4 looks terrific!

Glad you enjoyed the Elizabeth Chadwick book; I'm seeing her alot around book blogs.

Enjoy (?!) your company, Muse!

What a great Trailer for The Tudors. I've seen seasons 1 and 2, but have not yet seen 3. They accomplished quite a lot in the 3rd season.
