  1. Holy Moley! That's a TON of reading! I loved Fangirl and Raven Boys. Have a great week!

  2. My mind boggles at having all those books on the go at the same time. I will start a few, but inevitably end up reading one with my eyes and listening to another. Otherwise I find I can't get really into them.

  3. Look at all of those picture books - you have some of my favourites here: Three Bears in a Boat, Sidewalk Flowers, A Boy in a Jaguar - all swoon worthy!

  4. Wow! So many books here. A few happen to be favourites too, particularly the picture books you shared here. My book club discussed Fangirl a few months ago, and most of us really enjoyed it, but we still dread reading Eleanor and Park. Hehe. :) I am hoping to sink my teeth into We Were Liars this month for our reading theme. I am crossing my fingers I get to do that.
