That reminds me I am sure I have The Reader somewhere on my Kindle - unread. Interesting about your house drain. I love the colic bit.

My copy is from the library but my husband also wants to read it. I suspect we'll end up buying a copy.

I enjoyed Wonder Valley. Have a great week, and thanks for sharing.

Here are My weekly updates

I am enjoying Wonder Valley. I started it in print (from the library) but realized I would enjoy it more as an audio. I purchased a digital version of the audiobook. I like the narrator's voice.

Nice assortment of books. I'm always amazed at the number you read at the same time. I'm a one-book-at-a-time gal myself. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

I'm a book a room type of person. So there's my bedside table book, my living room book, my on my phone book, my on my computer book, and so forth. Of those, I'm usually concentrating most of my time on one or two titles of the up to ten I have going.

I'm curious what you'll think of Wonder Valley, and I hope like Tess of the Road. Enjoy your books!

I'm enjoying Wonder Valley as an audio book. The narrator reminds me a bit of Cecil from Nightvale.

I like that coffeehouse cozy series. It's so detailed about the world of coffee. The protagonist doesn't annoy me either.

My youngest has one heck of a memory. She studies with her dad when she has an upcoming test; always warms my heart to see that in action.

I'm enjoying the Coffeehouse mystery series. I have the next one in my audiobook queue.

I haven’t seen any of those books. Great job at having read so many. Enjoy the new ones.

I expected to only have two done. Friday and Saturday ended up being good days for reading.

Lots of good books.

ENJOY, and thanks for coming by my blog.

Thanks. I plan on it.

I just read your review of The Belles and completely agree on being hooked! I'm looking forward to the second one. I'm also looking forward to your reviews of American Panda and Tess of the Road. YAY! Have a wonderful reading week!

I'm about a third of the way through American Panda. It's very good so far. I still need to dive into Tess of the Road. I'm a little behind on my reading.

Great book haul. I enjoy the Cleo Coyle series. It's a good one. Hope you have a great week!



Comment #18: Tuesday, March 20, 2018 at 23:11:00

These are all ones I've either bought or borrowed. I have another Cleo Coyle book on hand to read.

Ooh The Once Upon A Time Map Book looks fun. I'm a sucker for maps anyway. Never met a fantasy map I didn't like! And The Penderwicks look like they'd be fun- I almost got those once for my kids but then ended up reading other stuff.



Comment #20: Tuesday, March 20, 2018 at 23:13:00

Pussreboots

The Once Upon a Time Map Book has some beautiful maps but it's very short.

I thought Wonder Valley was great. A really different sort of story.

I have two hours left to Wonder Valley. I hope to finish it this week.

I love Cleo Coyle. I want to finish that series so badly. Really like a few of these titles.



Comment #24: Tuesday, March 20, 2018 at 23:19:00

I would like to finish Coyle's series too. I have another one from it in my queue of audiobooks.

Nice mailbox. Enjoy them all.

Thanks. Although none of them actually came via my mailbox.

I've been very curious about Wonder Valley, Sarah; I hope you enjoy it!

Wonder Valley is very good as an audiobook.

Ah - Nancy Drew collection.

The Map book looks interesting and I will be interested in seeing your thoughts on several titles here.

Three or four books at a time is enough for me to manage. Hope the rain gives you a longer break soon. Happy Reading!



Comment #32: Sunday, March 25, 2018 at 14:21:00

Pussreboots

The maps are beautiful and fascinating but the book is so short. I'd like to see it expanded into a more comprehensive thing with chapters that analyze the passages that inspired the maps. I'd also like to see more maps.

What a great list of books you have here. Nancy Drew was part of my childhood. Wonder what Whoopi has to say about relationships.

Thanks for visiting The Book Connection on Monday.



Comment #34: Sunday, March 25, 2018 at 14:26:00

Pussreboots

I read the Hardy Boys and Trixi Belden as a kid. Whoopi's thoughts on relationships boil down to love yourself before you try being in a relationship.
