  1. I read Revolution last summer, and I'm still talking to people about it. There were some parts I cried so hard, my husband though someone close to me had died. I also loved the mix between historical fiction and life today.

  2. I do not know why I cannot finish Unwind. It is totally my kind of book, and yet I have started and abandoned it at least 3 times. Maybe I need to listen to it instead. Have a great week!

  3. I absolutely loved Revolution! It's one of my favorite books of all time! What do you think of it so far?

  4. New Hilda book?! Awesome! I loved the first one :)
    Love Elephant & Piggie- cannot wait to read the one you mentioned.
    Reading Eleanor & Park right now and thoroughly enjoying it.

    Happy reading this week :)


  5. What a great and eclectic group of books. Enjoy!

  6. You have such great books! I think the only one I've read is Matched, but multiple others are on my radar to read!
    It's interesting to see the comment love about Revolution because it seems people either love or hate that book.
    Happy reading this week!

  7. A Big Guy Took My Ball was a return to form. I enjoy Shaun Tan. I'm glad other people are appreciating his talents!
