Join me!

The LINKY is dead...Oh well. I will hyperlink my reviews.


  1. I think I need to join this challenge, it's sounds fun and I have so many unread books. Good luck.

  2. I am excited to do this challenge with you as my TBR shelf seems to have doubled in size recently. The only book on your list that I've read is Buddha in the Attic and, if I remember correctly, I liked it.

  3. I haven't read any of these before but Mary Street's book sounds tempting. Good luck! :)

  4. I'm reading a few mysteries to give my mind a break from "There, There." What a tough book, but amazing too.


I look forward to your comments and interactions! Join in the conversation.
