I’ve mentioned in the past that Lillian likes to email the authors of books she reads to let them know she liked the book. She’s also writing book recommendation posts on her blog and listing every book she reads!
She almost always gets a response, and I was moved by this latest response .. “Hi, Lillian,
So good to hear from you! Your website and posts are amazing! Good for you to read and write and to share your messages with the world.
I have a new book that just came out. It’s called BAYOU MAGIC. Before SUGAR I wrote NINTH WARD.
I love fairies and I love Salt Lake, too. I’ve been to Salt Lake twice.
Happy reading and thank you for contacting me.

Extra movie night for me: “The Aeronauts”
Interesting movie based on true events in the mid 1800’s. I enjoyed it.
Amelia Wren was a badass balloon pilot!!

Thank you to my book blogger friend Kriti for having me on her fabulous blog. The tables are flipped and I discuss being an avid reader this time … Kriti writes amazing, very thorough book reviews. If you’re a book lover, you may want to head over and check out her blog ..
This month’s #ArmedWithABingo feature is my author friend, Camilla.
How’s reading going this year?
Reading is going great! I’m really enjoying the book reviews and interviews you share, Kriti. I get great book suggestions from you!
Thanks Camilla! 🙂 What made you join #ArmedWithABingo?
#ArmedWithABingo looked and felt different than anything I’d ever seen. I’m drawn to different ways of doing things …. Go here to read the full interview … It’s about a 2 minute read …

Lillian and Camilla February 2020 Date Day
First stop was for fries to share, a butterfly cookie for Lillian, and giant vegan ginger cookie for me.
Second stop was a beautiful walk, with a final stop for a bit of window shopping. xoxo
