Suddenly Sunday

Happy Sunday to everyone, and a very Happy Father's Day to the special men in your life!

Many things happening here on the blog, so it's a busy Suddenly Sunday.

First, we have a blog name change.....formerly Slice of Life, my new name is Books, Belles, & Beaux. Followers do not need to change a thing as my URL has stayed the same. I hope you like it!

Next, I currently have two GIVEAWAYS for June. In time to celebrate Gone With the Wind's 75th anniversary this June, I have one copy of Margaret Mitchell and John Marsh: The Love Story Behind Gone With the Wind by Marianne Walker. I also have the fabulous Queen By Right by Anne Easter Smith for historical fiction fans. Click on the book cover in the side bar to enter!

I highly recommend two books that are perfect for relaxing summer reading. You can read my thoughts on The Violets of March by Sarah Jio and Only Mr. Darcy Will Do by Kara Louise.

And lastly, since today's post is in honor of Father's Day, I'm going to share a little memory of my father. My dad was very hard working and did not spend any of his rare leisure time reading other than work related papers or the newspaper. But there was one book that he always took time to read to me (or listen to me read to him). Aww...makes me happy just remembering.

Have a great week!
