I’ve won Summertime

I  liked the title of this blog post: I won Summertime. Sounds good doesn’t it? But, nothing is as it seems……

Anyway you’ll gather from the photo of the book that I’ve won a copy. Yes, I just heard on twitter that I’m one of the lucky winners to have won a copy of Summertime by Vanessa Lafaye via Holly’s Giveaway rafflecopter.

Goodreads synopsis of Summertime:

Horrifying and beautiful, Summertime is a fictionalised account of one of the most devastating natural disasters in US history.

Florida Keys, 1935. Hurricane Season.

Tens of thousands of black and white men scarred by their experiences of war in Europe return home to find themselves abandoned to destitution by the US government.

The tiny, segregated community of Heron Key is suddenly overwhelmed by broken, disturbed men with new ideas about racial equality and nothing left to lose.

Tensions flare when a black veteran is accused of committing the most heinous crime of all against a white resident’s wife.

And not far off the strongest and most intense hurricane America has ever witnessed is gaining force.

For fans of The Help and To Kill a Mockingbird, this is the story of the greatest tragedy you’ve never heard of.

(Summertime is the title of the UK edition of Under a Dark Summer Sky)

Sounds good, looking forward to reading Summertime.

Bonsai Bonkers! Yes, why not? It’s Friday, so anything goes.

I just heard on twitter that I’m one of the lucky winners to have won a copy of Summertime by Vanessa Lafaye via Holly at https://bookaholicconfessions.wordpress.com/ Author Vanessa Lafaye is also on WordPress: https://vanessalafaye.wordpress.com/

Sounds good, looking forward to reading Summertime.

This brightened me up no end as I’ve got a cold at the moment, so feeling a bit sorry for myself! I’m a bad, grumpy, patient. On the positive I’ve got an excuse to lie in bed and read a book so that’s got to be a plus. But, my head hurts so much I can only read a chapter at a time. Ugh…….

So I’m cheering myself up by celebrating, Bonsai style! While blowing my nose, sniffling into a handkerchief, gulping down two paracetamols and sucking on a sore throat tablet, I’m typing up this post, that’s a bloggers dedication for you. Madness……

Ok, a Bonsai celebration seems a bit bonkers but that’s me, I’m a bit random!

Here’s some little Bonsai Bonkers thumbnails to get you smiling:

Have a wonderful weekend. Keep away from people like me, we’re full of germs. No hand shaking, or kissing strangers, they’re full of germs!
