Gasp, no library loot! Nothing was ready to be picked up at the library before today. Perhaps later in the week!


  1. WOW! You put my voracious reading to shame! You read about a book a week!

    Time Travelers Wife is one of my all time favorite books. I hope the movie doesn't ruin it.

  2. ooohhh...Time Traveler's wife, I just loved that books, can't wait for the movie.

    Those Melissa Marr books are on my wishlist.

  3. Daaamn, that's a lot of books. I applaud your progress so far! I don't think I've finished an entire book this year so far. I space out too much.

  4. Gasp for sure!!! You're doing great and I see a lot of great reads on your list!!

  5. The trailer for The Time Traveller's Wife looks awful. Which is a shame seeing that the book is a good read.

    I recently watched the film adaptation of Nick & Norah. It was terrible. I can't believe I wasted my time watching it.

  6. I read The Brief Wonderous Life of Oscar Wao too. I was glad to learn a few thing about the Dominican Republic at least. I want to read Dark Places by Gillian Flynn, so I'll read your review afterward. I loved her first one, Sharp Objects-so intense. I also have Revolutionary Road on my tbr list-I'll go look at your review. I don't know any of the others you've read. 22 books for a busy wife is good. Enjoy your loot-when you get some again. My LL post is up.

  7. Oh boy!! Those are a lot of books. What kind are they? romance? mystery??? i couldn't read half as many in 6 months. thumbs up!

  8. i don't think i've read ANY of those!


Shiny! I love comments.
