TGIF round up

This week has been crazy so I'm glad it's finally Friday! This week I am joining in on Parajunkee's Social Hop, which connects bloggers on Twitter and Facebook. If you want to find me I am on both, I have a page and tweet.

Captain Corelli's MandolinFriday also means GReads TGIF meme. This week ginger is asking about literary vacations. If you could take a trip this summer to any place within a fictional book where would you go? I'm lucky that I've been able to travel quite a lot over the years. However one place I've never visited but would love to isn't too far away. Kefalonia is featured in Captain Corelli's Mandolin and between the book and the film I would love to visit the Greek islands. These days with a toddler in tow I probably wouldn't quite get my dream holiday lazing on the beach with a book or heading out diving but I'd still love to visit.

Because of continuous problems with my web access over the last couple of weeks (hopefully now resolved) I haven't done a round up for a while, so this is a longer list than usual! Since last time I have read and reviewed

Puzzlebook: 100 Puzzle Quizzes by the Grabarchuk family
The Redemption of Mr Sturlubok by Rudolf Kerkhoven and Daniel Pitts (choose your own ending)
Thief of Hope by Cindy Young-Turner (fantasy)
Wings of Freedom by Ratan Kaul (historical romance)
and welcomed Kristy K James on her blog tour for historical fiction Enza.

Time to go now, off to the library with Monkey in a bit to swap books and attend a story and singing session. Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

I haven't heard of that book before, but I think books with great settings should be checked out, so.. *grin*

The Greek Isles sound amazing. I always love pictures that show that clear, blue water. Great choice!

Thanks for stopping by everyone. Glad I came up with an answer not everyone had heard of.
