Utah Book Month: Week Two Wrap and What's Coming Up

Wow, but it's been a fun and crazy Utah Book Month week! Let me tell you all about it!

Here's some stuff I posted:

Utah Author Photo Essay
Top Ten Utah Authors I've Read
Author Spotlight: Johnny Worthen
Author Spotlight: Amy Finnegan
Utah Book Readalong Discussion Part One
Review: How to Save a Life

And did you try the First Lines Quiz?  I'm guessing you haven't because I have ONLY THREE ENTRIES! Come people! Come give it a try for a chance to win a book!

We had FOUR twitter chats! They were with Amy Finnegan, J.R. Johansson, Johnny Worthen and Bree Despain. All a blast! I've having such fun with this. And this week, we have two more chats for you!
We'd love for you to join us! The more the merrier, as they say! Find us at #UtahBooks!

We've planned a date for our annual summer party! Here are the details:

Utah Book Month Bash
Friday, August 28, 2015 at 7:00 p.m.
Wines Park in Lehi, SW Pavilion 

  • Bring a dessert or snack to share; we'll provide plates/forks/napkins/cups/water.
  • We do have a pavilion with picnic tables, but you may also want to bring chairs or blankets for sitting on the grass.
  • Families are welcome - there is a playground for kids.

We'd love to meet our fellow book bloggers and author friends. Come if you can!

Our readalong of Not in the Script ends this coming week with a visit by author Amy Finnegan to book club. We'll live tweet the event and then tell you all about when it's over. (If you are reading along and live locally, please join us. Send me an email for details!)

The theme next week is Utah Bookish Places. Check out the main blog for all the goings on and be sure to link up if you do a post. And then be sure to enter the mega giveaway. You don't want to miss that! Also this week, there'll be another fun mini challenge, this time over at Jenni  Elyse's blog. 

Have you been doing the Instagram challenge with us? I didn't post many pictures this week, but here are a few in case you missed it:





  1. Great recap! You did much more than me. I missed way too many Twitterchats. I'll definitely be there for Sara Zarr!

  2. Loved the recap! Great work being so involved. I wish I could come to the Utah Book Month Bash on the 28th, but I'm due to have a baby any day now, so I'm pretty sure it's not in the cards for me this year. :( Hopefully next year!

  3. I'm sorry you've only had three entries. :( That's just sad. But, I had fun ding it at least. Great recap!

  4. Missing you and the Utah peeps this month! I'll have to check out the first lines, but pretty sure I won't know many...
