How do you keep up with all of this??

I've heard good things about Still Alice. It's up for consideration for our bookclub this month.

You had a great week! I Was Told There'd Be Cake and I Loved, I Lost, I Made Spaghetti both look like a lot of fun. I can't wait to see what you think of Still Alice - I'm sure it'll be a tear-jerker.

Lauren said...

I read "I was Told..." earlier this year - it's good! Some essays are far better than others, but overall it's a good read.

Vasilly said...

Still Alice and Unaccustomed Earth are on my TBR list! Happy reading.

I read Outcasts United and I Was Told There'd Be Cake and enjoyed both of them. I Loved, I Lost, I made Spaghetti is next up on my reading rotation and it sounds great, doesn't it? And I have Unaccustomed Earth sitting here too since I have loved both of her other books. Enjoy your haul this week!

Wow Jackpot! Enjoy that reading list you got building up there.

Red lady-Bonnie said...

Great list! I just got I Loved, I Lost, I made spaghetti today. I just heard about the Flourishing with food allergies and look forward to your review as we both have sons with nut allergies.

How cool that you won a book from Twitter! I haven't joined up yet, I'm so tempted.

Looking forward to your reviews!

Congrats on the contest wins! I really want to read Outcasts United. I read Still Alice last week and loved it!

Melanie said...

What a great list. I can always read about Romanovs, and the Spaghetti book is defintly on my list.

Anna said...

I'm on the tour for Mating Rituals, so I should receive that soon. You always get a ton of books, so I hope you have a ton of reading time. ;) Happy reading!
