  9. I can't wait to read The Distant Hours. The cover is so much nicer than the ARC, that was a disapointment...did you get the one with the plain blue cover?! I love the cover art on Salting Roses and will look forward to your reviews.

  14. You have an excellent book blog -- so glad I found it! I skimmed through some of your most recent reviews and your review style is most informative. I'll be looking forward to your reviews of The Distant Hours and Louisa May Alcott as they are both books I've had my eye on.

  15. I'm not sure I can count the two books featuring a womans back this time. The poses are a little different. Oh well.

    I keep hearing great things about the Kate Morton book so I think I'm going to have to get ahold of it, I hope you enjoy it.

    I shared this with Bermudaonion already but I heard a great interview with Harriet Reisen, the author of Louisa May Alcott: The Woman Behind Little Women, on the Diane Rehm Show. She was discussing the book so I thought I should share the link with you too.

    I hope you find it as enjoyable to listen to as I did.

  31. Kate Morton seems to be a popular choice among bloggers : I'm constantly hearing positive things about her writing, and very little negative. I might have to give a try to her books at some point!

  36. I keep having to leave "The Distant Hours" to get to a scheduled review book, and it's killing me! Salting Roses seems like it will be a wonderful read - great buzz on that one. I will also look forward to your review of Child of the Northern Spring - I think that one will need to go on my to-buy list soon!
