I want to read that Van Booy so bad I can almost TASTE IT ;)ReplyDelete
Happy anniversary girly, sorry you didn't get to have a fancy dinner! Hopefully you'll be able to celebrate soon :D
So, so good. The kind of good where you finish and want to start it all over again.Delete
Thank you, Jennifer. We are actually getting away for a few days next week, so it wasn't a big deal. It was kind of funny though, to reflect on the differences between the early days of a relationship and a marriage with little kids!
A couple of these are new to me, so I am looking forward to seeing what you think. Enjoy!ReplyDelete
Thanks! I really enjoyed the books I read last week.Delete

Have a great week.
My It's Monday, What Are You Reading
I haven't written my review yet! It should be up in a week or two. :)Delete
The Shining Girls looks really good. I need to hurry up and read it already *eyes copy on desk*ReplyDelete
Starting that book will be the hardest part! The pages will fly.Delete
Haven't read any of these books though The Shining Girls is definitely on my to be read list. Good choices!ReplyDelete
The Shining Girls is a great summer read! I hope you enjoy it.Delete
Hope you enjoy the Jasper Fforde Lindsey, have you read him before? I love his books and always find them an entertaining read.ReplyDelete
Yes, I'm slowly plugging through the series. I tend to start a series and then forget about it for a while. I really enjoyed the first two books though!Delete
Nice to see Simon van Booy's book on your list, Lindsey. I read his short story collection 'The Secret Lives of People in Love' last year and liked it very much. I love the way he sculpts each sentence to create beauty and perfection. I will look forward to hearing your thoughts on 'The Illusion of Separateness'. The title is so beautiful. Happy reading!ReplyDelete
The Illusion of Separateness was gorgeous. I feel like you should read it once for the story and then read it again just for the language.Delete
Wonderful to know that. I will add it to my 'TBR' list. I will look forward to reading your review of it.Delete
I think it's going to be one of those reviews where you just write, "Read it! I can't do justice to it!" :)Delete
