A Book for All Seasons; #BookishBloggersUnite

#BookishBloggersUnite is a weekly hashtag that a group of bookish friends participate in to talk about books. This week’s host is Sarah @ Reviews & Read-a-Thons, check out her blog for more links.

It took awhile, but Ottawa is finally beginning to warm up and get some sun. Naturally, my thoughts start turning to good summer reads. However, because some of the awesome #BookishBloggersUnite participants are in the southern hemisphere, instead of just focusing on summer, here’s is a book to pair with every season – and a drink to go with it, just for fun.

I’m participating in Bout of Books!

It’s time for another readathon! I’ll be participating in the Bout of Books 22. This one is a bit different from Dewey’s Readathon but promises to be just as fun. Here’s the info for those who haven’t heard of this one before (which included me until this morning, when one of my Book Riot Insider friends posted about it):

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda Shofner and Kelly Rubidoux Apple. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, May 14th and runs through Sunday, May 20th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 22 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog.

If you want updates as I read, the best place for that is to follow me on Twitter: @victoriakmartin. And, like with Dewey, you can expect a recap post here when all is read and done.

We Shall Be Monsters

To celebrate the 200th anniversary of Frankenstein‘s publication, Renaissance Press is releasing We Shall Be Monsters, an anthology of short stories from a diverse group of authors, many of whom represent marginalized voices. I am excited to announce that one of my stories, “Mother Monster,” will be included in the collection.

There is currently a Kickstarter running to support the project, please check it out.

This year, I participated in Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon for the first time and had a great time. I not only got to spend a day reading, I also finished a number of books and got to have some fun Twitter interactions while I was at it!
