Hello everyone! How's summer going for ya?
I should warn you, my brain is currently running on words like 'bombardment', 'flak', 'stalag', and 'rations'. So if I start mumbling about Colditz Castle or a B-17 skim and/or bear with me. B-) Please and thank you...
Have you heard of Recommend June Fest, the lovely bookish link-up started by Deborah at Reading in June? If not, then I'm pleased to introduce it to you. And if so, then I know you are also enjoying all the book-y fun. ;)
Today I'm finally getting around to participating in the fun link-up. :) I'm going to talk about one of my favorite authors -- Wanda E. Brunstetter -- and her lovely books. :)
When I chose Mrs. Brunstetter's books for this post, I didn't realize just how many of her books I have. The grand total? 34. And several of those have more than one book tucked away inside. O.O Yeah. Can you spell 'favorite author'?
Okay, here's the good news. 1) I'm not going to go into much depth on any of these, and 2) I haven't read all of them. (Meaning I won't talk about the ones I haven't read -- obviously. You've been spared, people!!)
Alrighty, let's get started. :D
