  1. Oh, I LOVED The Historian - I hope you like it too!

    Have a great week Rebecca!

  2. I can't wait to see what you think of The Historian!

  3. Well, the Weiner book should go quickly.

  4. I also really loved The Historian. I'm looking forward to your review!

  5. Do you watch American Idol? I thought about it after seeing that Ellen D. wrote one of the books you read. I have some idea of what she might be like as a judge but it will be interesting to say the least. :)

  6. You had a very productive month! I read half of The Historian but got lost by the third story within a story plot. But I plan to pick it up again. I am reading her second book Swan Thieves, good so far

  7. I've got The Historian on my TBR right now, but don't know when I will get to it. Maybe after your review it will move up on my list!!
