The boys wanted a tractor ride while Daddy was mowing lawn, so we got our shoes and socks on and – eventually – trooped outside for said ride around the yard.  Thumper always wants to be first, but Cricket beat him to the punch.  So while Daddy adjusted Cricket’s hearing protection, Thumper and I retreated to the sidewalk.

Holy time warp, Batman – how is it week eleven already?  Well, regardless, it’s my pleasure to introduce my very good friend, Sophie Tallis.  I hope you’ll enjoy reading her recommendations as much as I did! 🙂

Summer Reads Blog Tour – Week Eleven
Sophie Tallis

I’m beginning to wonder where all the time has gone, I mean eleven weeks have already slipped by in this Summer Reads Blog Tour. Where has the summer gone?
I sure hope you’ve been enjoying the Summer Reads Blog as much as I have with meeting all these new faces and new reads. We’ve just got two more weeks left and I’ve saved the best for last. Let’s welcome Sophie Tallis and her books along with her recommended reads.

Although I primarily write epic fantasy…
