It’s Wednesday and BookLovers Con is about to kick off! SBTB is here and we’d love to meet you if you see us all out and about. We also are doing a live podcast taping tomorrow. If you reserved your spot for that, it’s going to be a fantastic time! … I’m a sucker for mythology retellings in romance, so I particularly loved these recommendations by Sil over at Frolic.Media! I’ve only read one of them, which means the rest are going on my TBR pile! … I absolutely adore this story of a kid exclaiming his awe during an orchestral performance. It took some time to locate the boy, but they found him and have offered him a meeting with artistic director of the Handel and Haydn Society.
