Katie @ Read-at-Home Mom

Looks like an interesting mix of books! Thanks for your review of Bob. I've been curious about it, and I think you've convinced me to give it a try when I have a chance.

Bob is delightful. I hope you read it.

I've been seeing The Million around, and it looks pretty good?

I think you will like The Million. I found it a quick and delightful read.

Sure sounds like you'll be busy. Years ago, my hubby used to go to London for a week and it was just me and the girls. Fun, but sometimes overwhelming.

Lots of great books in your stacks. Once Upon a Spine and The Great Shelby Homes catch my eye.

Hope you have a great week.

Once Upon a Spine is my next priority as it's due at the library in the week.

Ah, Korra! I recently splurged and bought both The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra on Blu-Ray. Started on TLA last week and forgot how much I'd loved this show.

You have some good looking reads coming up, too. I love cozies so I'll be anxious to hear how you liked those.

My list!

The comics are fun too. On the cozy front, I just finished Death by Dumpling and it was a fun read.

Good luck with single parenting this week. Maybe waiting time can be reading time as you haul the kids around. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

The kids are fine. They're pretty easy.

All your books are new for me. Have a nice week.

I have wanted to read the Sharon Kahn books for awhile. They look good. I hope you'll be able to get some painting and/or reading in this week.

The Sharon Kahn books are ok. You might as well try one to see if they're for you.

The cozies look really good. Enjoy your week, and thanks for visiting my blog.

Death by Dumpling was good. Hopefully the others will be too.

Aj @ Read All The Things!

I love that cover with the Chinese food on it. Good luck with your painting. Have a great week!

Death by Dumpling is a great start to a new series.

Always a bit more hectic when flying solo! I hope you find some time to read. :)

I read The River at Night for one of my online bookclubs (Hike Like a Woman). I am curious what your research is? I am intrigued!

I'm doing a broad spectrum survey the American road narrative. I'm looking beyond the "classic" road trip stories for examples of how the road narrative tropes influence other genres. My essays are published once a week and are collected under the "road essays" tab up top. The books reviewed are also up there and are grouped by similar narrative elements. An explanation of what criteria I'm using is here.
