Really Random Tuesday


Really Random Tuesday is a meme created by Suko at Suko's Notebook which is a way to post odds and ends--announcements, musings, quotes, photos--any blogging and book-related things you can think of.

The lovely Carolyn over at Book Chick City is running a Summer Romance Challenge from June 1st until September 30th and I have decided to join in. Summer is coming and what better way to celebrate it than with a bit of summer loving!

The aim is to read 8 romances in the next four months and they can be any style of romance. Historical, paranormal and contemporary all count towards this challenge. 

I haven't got a clue which books I hope to read for this yet, but I will set up a separate page in order to record them. 

If you would like to know more about this challenge and join in the fun, then please click here.

Have you seen the new Flipback Books? OMG they will change the way we read whilst travelling. Who needs a Kindle when you can have one of these. 



How can they be so small, I hear you ask? Well, they are made with very thin paper often used in Bibles and have been bounded in a special way, to give you a book that fits into your pocket. They go on sale on the 30th June and I will be first in the queue to buy one. Want to know more, please click here.

My Kinda Book posted their Youtube video for Starcrossed last week and I fell in love with it. 




Bookangel_ Emma has some fabulous videos of Josephine Angelini today talking about her big break. Here is a link, they are so worth watching.

 That is enough randomness from me today. I hope you are having a fab Really Random Tuesday!

  6. I enjoyed this post, Vivienne! Thanks for doing RRT. I love the idea of the flipback books--it is a new concept to me. (I also love the English accents, which always sound so sophisticated.) I will link to this post the next time I do this meme. :)

  8. Flipback Books look so cool - maybe with them the handles on my bags won't keep breaking from all the heavy books I'm lugging around!

    Can't wait to read Starcrossed either :)

  12. Hannah - I like the idea of them and I think they would be a better option for travelling as less expensive to lose than a Kindle!

    Illiana - thank you.

    Annabell - Starcrossed is amazing - you will love it.

    Vasilly - I just like the fact they are so small and compact. I have to have one.
