April Book Tours and Blog Hops

I was coming on to write a post about all the stuff I have going on with the blog for April when I got distracted by something infinitely more important. Chocolate dipped marshmallow peeps! They were there sitting on my desk, a packet of three, looking so sweet and yummy. They are gone now. How sad. Tomorrow I have to get more.... I can not begin to tell you how good they are. Well, if you don't like peeps, or chocolate, you might not like them. But I might just have to put a pack in my Blog Hop Giveaway prize pack.

So...April...here's what's going on.

April 11th to the 18th is the Giveaway Blog Hop for Autism Awareness Month. There will be links to the participating blogs, and posts about Autistic Spectrum disorders. My giveaway pack will include the book "Ten Things Every Child with Autism Wishes You Knew" By, Ellen Notbohm and a beautiful Autism Awareness Heart Key Chain.(And the before mentioned peeps, just because I can)

April 26th will be my review for "The King Whisperers" By, Kerwin Swint, hosted by Novel Publicity. 
Book Description:


Throughout history, behind so many de facto rulers, there can often be found a shadowy puppet-master pulling the strings. Using examples from Machiavelli, Catherine de Medici and Alexander Hamilton to Dick Cheney, Zhou Enlai and Joseph Stalin, Kerwin Swint presents profiles of notorious “king whisperers,” spanning the globe and historical periods, showing how they employed unique styles of power politics to wrest control. From spies, silver-tongued devils, and the truly evil, this is a brilliant tapestry of behind-the-scenes schemers of all shapes and sizes.

About the Author
Kerwin Swint is a Professor of Political Science at Kennesaw State University and the author of other socio-political books.

This is the first non-fiction book I am reviewing for the blog and I am actually very excited to read it. I started it today, and had a hard time putting it down.

I also plan on reviewing the movie, Water for Elephants. So can not wait to see it.

I have a few other things in the works that I do not have definite dates for, as always I will update you as soon as I know.  Now..back to the peeps!!
