I celebrated Page Turners first birthday this week! Suzanne and Darlyn both won an Australian book in my birthday giveaway, and I have shared some of my firsts with everyone here at this post: My first time... (it's not what you're thinking).
I did two reviews this week: The Turn of the Screw by Henry James and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by JK Rowling.
Big news here in Australia, Truth by Peter Temple won Australia's premier literary award, The Miles Franklin Literary Award. You can read about the controversy and the excitement here at this post.
Truth be told, it hasn't been a giant week here at Page Turners because I have gone back to work, and I haven't been able to use the computer much at home, which has limited my blogging time significantly. In the near future I will have reviews of Lean on Pete by Willy Vlautin, The Boat by Nam Le, Murder on a Midsummer Night by Kerry Greenwood and We Need to Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver (which I expect to finish soon). So if you are interested in any of those titles make sure you check back in.
Also have a look at my meme, Book Beginnings on Friday!
It is hosted at Crazy for Books. In the spirit of the Twitter Friday Follow, the Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and find new book-related blogs that we may be missing out on! This weekly BOOK PARTY is an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books! It will also give blog readers a chance to find other book blogs that they may not know existed!
