my first Suddenly Sunday!

Suddenly Sunday is a fairly new meme created by Svea from Confessions and Ramblings of a Muse in the Fog and I've decided to start participating!  Svea has a fabulous blog, so make sure to check it out!

Hey there dear readers!  I hope this Sunday finds everyone well.  Me, I'm baking a cake, watching the hubby play Wii Hockey and doing the 80th load of laundry.  I swear, I have NO idea how 3 people can accumulate so much dirty clothes!  

I finally saw Shutter Island this weekend and I must say that it was very good.  At first I just thought it weird but then it all comes together and ends up making sense.  I just love Leondardo DiCaprio...he always brings it! 

As for reading, I've actually been doing a LOT of it lately due to over-booking myself in March and April.  I finished Mistress of Rome by Kate Quinn, which I thought was fantastic!  I'll be starting off the book tour for Mistress of Rome with an interview with author Kate Quinn on April 7th, and on the 8th will be my review. 

I'm currently reading The Highest Stakes by Emery Lee.  I have to say that I was a little worried about this one because horses aren't usually my thing, but I'm trying to expand my reading horizons and I'm enjoying it.  It does tend to get a little mired down with the horse details, but the dialogue is fun and the story flows well. 

The March event of The Scarlet Lion by Elizabeth Chadwick for the Historical Fiction Bloggers Round Table has come to a close and I hope you all enjoyed it!  I know we all had a blast...EC is a lot of fun to work with!  Congrats to Svea on winning the giveaway of both William Marshall books.  Click HERE to view the schedule of events with links to them all.

Our April event will be on the new novel by Stephanie Cowell, Claude and Camille: A Novel of Monet and starting here on April 6th.  I LOVED this novel and can't wait to share all of the goodies we have lined up for you all!  Stay tuned for your chance to not only win a copy of Claude and Camille but also Stephanie's previous novel, Marrying Mozart!

Passages to the Past has some other really groovy events coming up in the next few weeks...a Q & A with Christy English, author of The Queen's Pawn (due out April 6th) with a giveaway, guest post with author Mary Sharratt with giveaway for her new novel, Daughters of the Witching Hill (another fabulous novel!) and a guest post with Stephanie Cowell for the April Round Table event on Claude and Camille.

I hope you all have a great week!




  1. How wonderful! I am so glad you have decided to participate in Suddenly Sunday :)

    I am so glad you liked Mistress of Rome, I found it absolutely wonderful. Looks like I am following you on the blog tour...I post my review on the 8th and Interview on the 9th!

    I was soooooo excited to win the HFBRT giveaway :) You ladies did another fantastic job!

    Speaking of 80 loads of laundry, I need to go do some too! Have a great week :)

  2. I am going to have to get to Mistress of Rome sooner rather than later, eh?

    It's going to be a big month in April, isn't it? Looking forward to it!

    I did one load of laundry today, that's all my brain could take. Someone is going to have to pick up the slack elsewhere. =)

  3. I think I will consider this new meme- it's so interesting...and so is your week,girlfriend! I'll be starting Mistress of Rome very soon- sounds terrific. Have a great week too!

  4. What a a great line-up for the next few weeks.
    Congratulations, Svea. Know she will enjoy the books.

  5. Welcome fellow newbie!
    My mom and I were planning to see Shutter Island but changed to Alinc in Wonderland at the last minute. Really enjoyed it and thought all of the actors were outstanding. The CGI was mind blowing.

    Laundry....I still have celan underwaer so mine will wait :) Have a wonderful week.

  6. The Mistress of Rome looks great!

  7. I am glad to see more people joining in on Suddenly Sunday. The name is very apt too because quite often it is a sudden realisation that the weekend is nearly over!
