postheadericon Leisurely Day with No Labor

I hope everyone enjoyed this Labor Day weekend. We had a busy Saturday and Sunday, but today was all about the relaxation. 

Mr. MoonCat and I both belong to a fantasy football league. I’ve been a team owner since 2005 and this will be the hubby’s third year. The league is mostly made up of some of my dearest friends from kindergarten to now! We’ve always stayed close and connected and look forward to our annual draft party on Labor Day weekend and the Super Bowl party in the winter. It’s a fun and very competitive way to keep our lifelong relationships strong. 

The party is usually a weekend long event with a “pre-party” on Friday night, a golf tournament on Saturday and the actual draft/party on Sunday. It is always an extremely fun weekend, but the older I get, the more tired I am come Monday.

I love these guys, but it’s probably a good thing we DO only plan these things twice a year!

So today, I rested! I spent a large part of my day reading and catching up on my pile of “To Be Read” books. I’m still doing reviews over at One Book Shy of a Full Shelf as well as doing some sensible saving at Centsable Couponing. I’m busy, but it’s stuff I love.
How was your weekend?

postheadericon Anjan – A Book Review and Giveaway


THE GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED

Anjan

Larus Einarsson
I recently received this delightful book from the publisher for my review.  I enjoy fantasy and epic type stories so she felt that this would be a match for me.  She was right.
From the start you’re drawn into another world (several actually, since the worlds of humans, elves, and that which is hidden is separated by a thin veil.)  The story starts with Kata, a young white witch who is destined for great things.  We follow her from the world of elves into the human realm where she meets up with the man who will aid her in the care and upbringing of a child named Anjan.  Anjan is foretold to be an integral part of a prophecy that will affect all of the worlds. 
I don’t want to give too much away, because this is a lovely story full of warmth and adventure.  I think it will be a treat for readers of all ages who enjoy a world tinged with magic and classic good vs. evil.  (I especially enjoyed the fact that Kata works heavily with herbs – a woman after my own heart!)  This book is an easy read and at 216 pages, not too much of a heavy time investment.  I was happy to see that the author is planning on continuing with Anjan’s saga in later volumes.  More information about the author and an actual excerpt from the book can be found at anjanbooks.com.
I am offering my gently read copy of Anjan up for one lucky MoonCat Farms reader.  To enter the drawing, just tell me the name of another book you think I might enjoy reading this summer.  I’ll draw a winner on Friday, June 25th.  Good luck and good reading.
