Angela: In addition to launching the blog this month, we kicked off two new awesome series that I love. The first is our Literary Dress Up series, which was so fun to do. Rereading Fangirl was a blast and I’ve found myself dressing more like Cath. Lazy Simple style is the best style.  The second was Read by…, which is written by our IRL friend Kaitlyn (of The Backstage Reader). I laughed out loud while reading the clever titles she imagined Cat Crawfield would read.

Sally: Starting a blog has been such fun and a major learning experience. My two favorite posts (so far) have been Tattoo Tuesday: The Great Gatsby and my Girl, Interrupted review. Gatsby is such a classic and I loved picking my favorite tattoos to share out of the many that I found. Writing reviews is a fun process and a welcome challenge, especially when it comes to a memoir.


We have some fabulous posts planned for September. In addition to reviews and Tattoo Tuesday we will also be hosting a giveaway, influencing your style with another round of Literary Dress Up, and presenting, for your viewing pleasure, Angela’s dream cast for Tiny Little Thing.

Duchess: A Novel of Sarah Churchill by Susan Holloway Scott
