  1. Just yesterday I finished Secret Daughter; it is one of my favorites so far this year! The writing and story are both wonderful

  2. I need to look at Please Look out for Mom, the book jacket is intriguing.

    I really want to read The Un-Coupling…. can’t wait. It’s been on my list for months.

    Have a great week!

  3. I am excited about Reading Lips and just got that one in the mail. You focused on a lot of great books this time around, and I hope that you get the chance to enjoy some of them!

    1. With as many as I have to read I think these list will serve more as a reminder for some future time when I, theoretically, have more time.

    1. There are! These lists will be a great reference too for me to remember some of them. I make a long list and cull it down to the best of what I would read.
