Last Week on Melissa's Midnight Musings:
(Click Links to be taken directly to the posts)
My weeks' on the blog have been packed lately and it doesn't look like it's slowing down too much either. Before I announce what's coming next week check out some of the terms that brought readers to Melissa's Midnight Musings this week:

This Week's search Terms:
midnight-orchids.blogspot.com- my main url brought 4 visitors this week
twelve months by steven manchester- this term also brought 4 visitors. I hope to read and review 12 Months soon.
16 to life soundtrack- I've never listened to it.
all the right stuff book talk- All the Right Stuff is a good book. I'm glad to see people are looking for information on it.
discussion questions for all the right stuff I didn't include any of those in my review post, sorry
harry potter in everyday life This is my favorite search term of the week. Glad to see a like minded person who thinks about HP in relation to everyday life.
midnight ambitions not an awful word - also another great book, guessing they wanted to read it at midnight maybe. Or maybe they were looking for my review specifically.
misfortune cookie ending michelle gorman- Another great book, but I made sure not to give away anything about the ending in my review.
September fresh start I actually saw this pop up in my search terms before the introduction post went up last night, so I jumped for joy to see that people were searching for it even before it was officially launched.

And now on to next week. I've got another full week ahead, including some great posts.

Coming Up This Week:
  • Review of Mirror in the River by Dale Lovin
  • Review of Wow! Glowing Bride in 30 Days by Laura Pepper
  • Guest post and giveaway, featuring author Kathryn Jones
  • Behind the Blog- This week is going to be free choice week so feel free to write about anything you'd like. Make sure to link up on Friday
  • Interview with Carmen Rodrigues, author of 34 Pieces of You as part of  Fresh Start September
  • My lovely co-hosts Daphne and Faye will also be posting interviews and guest posts as part of Fresh Start September  The introduction post here on this blog will be updated with their posts as well as the posts featured on Melissa's Midnight Musings, or you can just subscribe to their blogs as well and get the posts right as they go up. :)

Awesome book haul! Congrats on the GC win. And when you say, All the Right Stuff, are you talking about the book by Tom Wolfe? If so, yes, it's fantastic.
Have a great week!

I'm actually talking about the book by Walter Dean Myers. But now I'll have to try out the one by Tom Wolfe too. :)
