  12. Oh, you have several books on your list that look fabulous...like Sounds Like Crazy, Forget Me Not, South of Broad...and as for the ones you have next, I loved Look Again and On Folly Beach is one I received recently.

    I loved Pull of the Moon. Anything by Elizabeth Berg is a winner.

    Have fun!

  13. Welcome back Staci - I am popping in with coffee and scones! :D

    You had an incredible two weeks of reviews... I love that The Lost Summer is your fave book to date for 2010 and only makes me want to read it more. Perhaps a stop at the book store is due... :)

    Have a wonderful week!

  17. I'm so happy to see that you liked The Weed that Strings The Hangman's Bag. I really enjoyed that one, and rumor has it that there's a third one in the wind.

    Enjoy your reading week.

  18. Dang - you have read some great books in the past few weeks! Look Again is on the Target Club Picks list, I think. I have seen it everywhere. The Lost Summer of Louisa May Alcott is on my list. Glad to see you like it!

  29. I really like the look of Watermark - I'll have to check that one out. I have Little Giant on my TBR list - they all look good! Enjoy!

  30. I started On Folly Beach a week or so ago, but had to put it aside for another read. It's my first encounter with Karen White and so far, so good.

    Too funny. I got an ARC of The Little Giant of Aberdeen County before it came out in hardcover. Now everyone's getting it, I'm assuming since it's coming out (or has already) in paperback. I still haven't read it!! Soon! :)

  31. You have a nice set of books. Haven't read any of them. Some of the covers are very attractive, pique my curiousity. Where did you find a picture with so many mailboxes? :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. I enjoyed Little Giant but it was a bit "too whimsical" for me. I do forward to reading Watermark. :)

  33. I have Guest House waiting TBR. I read Little Giant last year and it was a really unique story, I liked it. Watermark sounds very good. Enjoy your great selection of books!

  34. I've got Look Again on my shelf, and I really hope it's good. I've been seeing some reviews that have been less than glowing lately.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Watermark looks great. I read the write up on Amazon and the first bit gave me the chills,(her tongue!) but looks really good. Added it to my list list. Look forward to hearing what you think about it.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I have Little Giant of Aberdeen County too. I still haven't read it yet! You have read a lot of books in the last two weeks. If My kids would go to bed before 9:30/10, I might get a lot of reading in too!

  37. Whew! Check you out! GReat job Staci!
