Several of these are on my TBRlist. I am hoping to see Brooks and Groff at the Southern Festival of Books in Nashville in just a couple of weeks. Read Uprooted a few weeks ago and LOVED it.


High five sister, I'm a librarian too! There is not enough life to read everything on my list as well. Just finished the Marriage of Opposites-delicious! God Bless the Child-not so much. Anyway, I'm currently looking for a fun reading list to work through, something that would help me get through all the borrowed books at home. Next read on my list? Furiously Happy by Jenny Lawson. Her first book-Let's Pretend This Never Happen had me in stitches. I also belong to a couple of book clubs, of course, and will be starting Extremely Loud and Incredible Close and Just Mercy. While I originally started following you through scrapbooking, I most enjoy your library commentary and book reviews. I sorely lack the strength of writing reviews and enjoy seeing someone else do it so well. Happy reading!


Thank you for this delicious list. I will be carrying it to my library...


I'm reading Fates and Furies right now and I must not have gotten to the Antigone part right now, but it has referenced a lot of Shakespeare already, plus you can get into who/what the Fates and the Furies were in mythology and how that might relate to the book . . . it's a meaty one. I also have hundreds of books on my Goodreads "To Read" shelf -- I will never read them all, but I'm going to give it the old college try. :-)


Most of my to-be-read books are books I've enjoyed in the past- and so I will more than likely never re-read them. I just keep plugging along with my favorite authors and recommendations from people. I have to tell you about my oldest sister. She passed away in May and her kids have been cleaning out her house. Talk about books! She was also a librarian and prolific collector of books. I got to help box a lot of them up and brought several home- ones that had meaning for me and a tie with my sister. It was amazing to see what she had amassed through the years but I know that collecting (and reading) books made her happy so I say- more power to her!


I read The Orphan Train for book club. An interesting read, but not memorable. It's been about 6 months since I read it and I think I could tell you about as much as you had in your description--entertaining, good for poolside, but not to keep on your bedside table.


Ooooh, I'd missed that there was a new Naomi Novik novel; must put it on my boss's "to buy" list!


You only need a few hours worth of reading bubble to read A Man Called Ove but it is JUST SO GOOD. I'm going to be bossy and say read it next! : ) I'm looking forward to that Geraldine Brooks one.
