  1. Just realised I've only two days to get my last review in! Thanks, as ever, for being a most gracious host for the ever fascinating annual event that is SpanishLitMonth(s).

    1. Sorry for the way belated reply, Séamus, but I appreciate your kind words and wish to let you know that you're quite welcome for everything! I have one final SLM round-up post left, so I'll be adding any late links I missed until now. Cheers!

  2. Well, I barely managed to squeak in.....lol. I put up my review of "The Island of Eternal Love", by Daina Chaviano, on August 29th. I greatly enjoyed this book, and am planning to read it again, in the original Spanish, sometime in the not-too-distant future. I think I'm obsessed.....

    Gotta go check out all of these reviews! I'll be participating again next year, and will be better prepared. Thanks to you and Stu for hosting this event!! : )

    1. Sorry to you as well for the very belated reply, Maria, and you're welcome as well of course! Please note that I appreciate your enthusiasm for SLM and am glad to hear that you've already decided to participate in next year's event. As I indicated to Séamus above, I have one final SLM round-up post left in which I'll be adding any late links I missed until now. ¡Saludos!
