  5. I'm loving this blog tour!

    I didn't like The Time Traveler's Wife, but I'm not sure that it really had anything to do with the book.

    I was halfway through the audiobook when I realized.... it was abridged. I was very bitter, and I think that hurt my impressions of it.

  6. Just wait until you read Little Vampire Women!

  7. I loved "The Little House" book!!!

    And I'm always SHOCKEd when someone DOESN'T like "The Time Traveller's Wife." I thought it was brilliant.

    thanks for suggesting me !

  9. Me too with Little Women, The Little House, and Chesapeake!

  10. Yay for Michelle. I'll join you on that trip to medieval Europe!

  11. I can't help but think about how you got those books to your new place! I bet packing (and unpacking) was endless! :--)

  12. I only discovered The Little House about a year ago!! That book is the cutest!!!
