Monthly Roundup- September 2009

This is the first of my monthly roundup posts, for new readers or those who just want a recap of everything that has happened on this blog for the past month.

I hosted my first giveaway of Michelle Moran's new historical novel, Cleopatra's Daughter, which received quite an enthusiastic response. Michelle also wrote a guest post for my blog about Life and Libraries in the Ancient World.

I participated in my first Book Blogger Appreciation Week, a really fun experience. You can read all my BBAW posts here.

This month, Roald Dahl was my featured author, where I wrote about what makes him one of my favorite writers.

I reviewed the following books:
Eclipse- Stephenie Meyer
The God of Small Things- Arundhati Roy
Dead Until Dark- Charlaine Harris
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory- Roald Dahl
Darkfever- Karen Marie Moning
The Hobbit- J R R Tolkien

I reviewed the following movies on Monday Movies:
Godfather
National Treasure2: Book of Secrets
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Transformers2: Revenge of the Fallen

    Eep! It's the last day of the month already?! Somehow I'd forgotten September only had 30 days. Please don't laugh at me :P Anyway, it sounds like you had a great blogging month!

    Oops, I sent my comment too early what I wanted to say is though I rliked The God of Small Things you review intrigued me. I read the book a long time ago and I'm thinking I should re-read. I remember it was written quite well.
    Thanks for making me think!
