Hello Lovelies! Please excuse our dust while we do a bit of construction on the blog. We will still be posting exciting reviews, brilliant guest posts, and exciting giveaways but we are in the process of transforming the blog and adding new content and features for you to enjoy.

Sunday Post

Hope you all had a great Halloween this weekend. It was a rare treat that Annie, Sheree and myself got to go to a Halloween party (Sheree's son's 18th birthday). I actually enjoyed the dressing up part, which is unusual for me. But we had a great time and it was fun seeing everyone dressed up (Sheree and I in the photo. Sheree is Wicked Lovely and I am a Pumpkin Head).

Well as the end of the year gets closer we have been thinking about next year and what we would like to do at Royal Reviews. This year we ran three challenges, historical, romance and movies and want to increase them next year. J. Kaye (Countess of Hearts) at J. Kaye's Book Blog has given us the opportunity to run 1st in a Series, 2nds Challenge, Audio Books Challenge and the E-Book Challenge. This is a fantastic opportunity for Royal Reviews and we are very excited about running these challenges. We will be having a sign up week beginning November 29th and I will let you know more about the challenges in the Sunday Posts coming up.

This week coming up on Royal's we will be having another mix up week with reviews from various genres and reviewers. But I am sure you will find books to add to your TBR.

This month's competition was to win a copy of Halfway to the Grave. The lucky winner is Saving Diva.

Well that's it for this week, in Australia The Time Traveler's Wife is finally being released on Thursday so the three of us who live in Australia will be rushing off to see it. Hope you all have a great week!

I am hoping to see Time Traveller's Wife pretty much as soon as it comes out as well, although it won't be next weekend. Maybe the Tuesday after that. Maybe.

Marg, we are very excited about it. I hear that it is a little different but captures the essence of the book.
