Hey everybody. How are you doing? It's been a long, tough week around here. Without going into too much detail, we would really appreciate your thoughts and prayers right now. It's not the three of us directly, but there are several people who we know and love who are going through some really awful stuff right now.
Anyway, the Telegraph Avenue readalong will have its last installment on Tuesday and I am currently working through a gigantic pile of library books. I will get through them before the fines kick in...I will get through them before the fines kick in...

Sorry it has been a tough week for those you love! May this week bring a change for the better.ReplyDelete
Thank so much Nise.Delete
Enjoy your books. My favorite read last week was Hereville: How Mirka Met a Meteorite by Barry Deutsch which I read via NetGalley. Please come see what else I'm reading.ReplyDelete
Thanks, I will do that.Delete
My thoughts go out to you and hope everything sorts itself out.ReplyDelete
Thank you Karen. I loved Angelmaker too! Why aren't more people excited about this book?Delete
I've seen Angelmaker around quite a lot in the last week or two, I hope you enjoy itReplyDelete
Have a great reading week!

The Chaperone is supposed to be really good, are you enjoying it?
Thank you, Sam. I appreciate it. I am really enjoying it so far. :)Delete
Hope everything is ok with you and yours!ReplyDelete
Good luck getting those books read before the fines kick in ;) Laura Moriarty...I know her stuff I think. Off to google, lol.
Have a great week of reading :)
Ha...I completely understand that feeling of vaguely remembering something...Delete
I think this is the first time I've read anything by Laura Moriarty. I will have to check out her other books after I finish this one.
So what is the Chaperone about? It looks interesting!ReplyDelete
Happy reading this week :)
The Brunette Librarian Blog
The Chaperone is about this seemingly ordinary woman who accompanies a young girl to NYC for the summer, so that the girl can join a dance troupe. It's really lovely historical fiction.Delete
I LOVED Code Name Verity also. Fantastic stuff. But I am sorry to hear the horrible week you and others are having. Hope it gets better soon!ReplyDelete
My Monday post.
I loved it too. It totally deserved every word of praise that it received!Delete
Thank you for your kind thoughts. :)
Sorry to hear things are tough for your friends...sending thoughts and prayers.ReplyDelete
Hope you have a good week this week!

Thank you Kristin!Delete
I've got Girl Meets God on my wishlist. I read her more recent memoir a few months ago and it made me want to read GMG.ReplyDelete
Yes, I kept hearing about Still and thought I should start at the beginning.Delete
