Can I just say that I love my book reading friends?? Your reviews, Mailbox Mondays, Waiting on Wednesday, It's Monday...What are you Reading, Teaser Tuesdays, and Library Loot posts have a big impact on what I've been reading the past year. Who said that memes were a waste of time??? I know that there are bloggers out there that wouldn't be caught dead participating in one, but I'm thankful that so many of us do, because my choices and knowledge of new releases and new-to-me authors has grown exponentially!!! (sort of like a few rabbits getting busy...if you know what I mean!!!) Without this blogging community and fun memes that bring us together on a weekly basis I know that my reading experience would not be as rich. So for that I thank you all and now will proceed to blaming people for loading up my library bag this week....You've been very naughty this week!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wedding Cake - Lynne Hinton
Who is to blame? Bonnie (Redlady's Reading Room)
Why? Because a while back she reviewed 'Christmas Cake' and I loved her review so much that she generously sent me her copy. So when I was looking at books today and noticed this author, I remembered Bonnie's review and grabbed it! Don't you love how I blamed Bonnie in such a crazy roundabout way??
A Cottage by the Sea- Ciji Ware
Who is to blame? Kaye (Pudgy Penguin Perusals)
Why? I fell in love with her review of this book because it takes place in Cornwall, which is on top of my MUST visit before I die locations. After reading her review I requested it immediately from my library!
The Bride Collector- Ted Dekker
Who is to blame? Nise (Under the Boardwalk)
Why?I really enjoy Dekker but after reading Nise's review and her description of this book being like a roller coaster ride made me realize that I had to read it now instead of later!!
