**Bookish Happenings**


Today, I thought I would share some bookish things that have been going on this week from my fellow book bloggers, indieBRAG and myself at Layered Pages. We are completely drawn into the world of stories and the people who write them. Our passion is to share our love of reading, good reads and our hunt for them. Daily we are exploring social media and various book sites for the next great read. In this post, I will share some posts highlights and events happening this week from the people I mentioned above.

First, I would like to mention a few things that are happening at Layered Pages and what I have been posting about this week. I’ve had several posts: About the indieBRAG Halloween Event that is going on. (more info about that below or just click on the link to find out more), An Oldie but Goodie Book Review, A post on a Book Hangover and cures for it, and my cover crush for the week! My highlight for the week is my Oldie but Goodie post. I love reading my older reviews! I learn a lot from them and how my writing has developed.

Right now I am reading several books. A couple of them are buddies reads: To Capture What We Cannot Keep by Beatrice Colin. (the discussion on that is really good!), The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins (I have LOTs to say about this book!), Lincoln’s Autocrat (The Life of Edwin Stanton) by William Marvel, The Civil War Source Book by Philip Katcher (I’m having issues with some of the content but it’s interesting), and this weekend I am starting, Yesternight by Cat Winters. I know, it’s a lot of reading material to read at once but I am able to keep up with it and I can’t help myself.


Here is a few of my fellow book bloggers highlights for the week! Be sure to check them out. These bloggers are so dedicated to their craft of sharing stories and a big support to the book world. I highly recommend you follow their blogs as well.
