Sunday Sit-Down #1

Sunday Sit-Down is a wonderful book meme hosted by Book Reviews by Bobbie. In a nutshell, it serves as a recap of whatever has been going on on one's blog during the week. For more information, visit Bobbie's blog.

This has been a big week for Nikola's Book Blog, since it was born on Monday! Here is a list of things that happened since then:

3 Book Reviews: Notes on a Scandal, Pants on Fire, Undead and Unwed

1 Book-to-Movie review: Angels and Demons

1 Giveaway: The Eight & The Fire (ends August 28th)...

...also, lots of interesting memes, comments, giveaways, blogs I now follow and interesting people!

And today, I won a giveaway of Philippa Gregory's new novel, The White Queen, over at Historically Obsessed. I cannot tell you how happy this has made me - it was a cherry on top of a fantastic cake. Big thanks to Lizzy, you really made my week. And everybody, make sure you visit her fabulous blog!

Also, big thanks to all of you for reading and thus cementing my will to blog about books.

Congrats on winning The White Queen. Everyone is clamoring for that one. I have yet to read a Gregory book so I've entered several contests and hope to win it!

Congratulations on your win, Nikola. I haven't read the book yet but it sounds really good. This is also on my wish list.
