Thank you for your comments! They make me want to write and blog more!


  1. Ooh, I look forward to your thougths on Children of Dust - that sounds like a good one!

  2. Holy cow! How can you keep up with that many books at one time? You're obviously smarter than I am!

  3. I have The Historian on my TBR shelf (have I mentioned this?). I hope you can get into it, because if you can't, I don't think there's much hope for me.

  4. I really enjoyed The Historian but maybe you're just not in the right mood for it??? I can't believe how much non-fiction you read!!

    Have a great week!

  5. I loved Best Friends Forever. It was a great read.

  6. I'm glad you have at least one "Just because I want to" book on that very long list!!!!

  7. You are reading a ridiculous amount of books!

  8. Give The Historian time. I thought it really gathered steam. Now, I normally cannot read vampire stories. In fact, it is the only one I have ever read. I loved it. A "great yarn" -- which I generally love.

  9. Can't wait to find out if you can get into The Historian! I've had it on my shelves for years, and the size of it is usually what deters me from actually throwing myself in. I seem to be tackling (or willing to tackle) a few more chunksters this year, so maybe I'll finally get around to it.

  10. If you make it to page 388 of The Historian ( which is where I gave in) then I will finish it with you!

    I enjoyed Children of the Dust, very eye-opening.

    I really need to read something by Jennifer Weiner- she is so funny on twitter
