This Week?
I just finished reading Super Sad True Love Story by Gary ShteyngartΒ and I’ll be reviewing it this week. I have In The Garden of Beasts by Erik Larson up next. There are a few books waiting for me at the library as well but they will have to wait because I’ve joined the Gone With the Wind read along and I have to get cracking on that!Β 
As always, happy reading!!

  1. You've been busy. I think you have a new look here at your blog if I'm not mistaken. I can't remember what the old look was, but this yellow and header just must be new. I love it!

  2. First of all, I love the way you've set up this post; and secondly, yay for the upper right corner of your sidebar (word verification free blog!). Now I'm off to check some of your links…and thanks for visiting my blog.

  3. Good luck with your class! I love poetry ~ I always think it helps to understand it when you read it out loud. :)Nothing Daunted sounds like a perfect book for me~ history, strong women, pioneering. Love it.Have a great week!

  4. I so agree with your reading pet peeves! Best of luck with your online class. I am not sure I am disciplined enough to do it myself! Have a great week of reading.

  5. Nice, four books this week. I didn't make it past 2 and a bit. I hope you do start to enjoy poetry. It sounds like a class for me. But honestly, no. Not now, at least. Good luck and have a great week!

  6. I love To Kill A Mockingbird. One of my all time favourites.Good luck with your online class. I am not a huge fan of poetry and very rarely go out of my way to read it. There are a few that I do like though.Love your pre-blogging days post. Such a great idea. I didn't really have anyone to talk to about books until my book shop working days. I was one of very few readers at school so I know how you feel.

  7. Thanks darlin'! I'm learning as I go and trying out some new stuff here and there. I think I'll end up going with a designer at some point but I'm having fun playing around in the meantime πŸ™‚ (yellow is my ultra-fave)

  8. Thanks Karen! I'm excited for the class. I've never been a fan of poetry either but I think that's only because it's always made me feel nervous! Isn't it great to have a forum to talk books now? It's been the BEST πŸ˜‰

  9. Online classes are all about time management, if you can do that, you'll knock it out of the park! I actually loved my online courses when I was in undergrad and always did really well in them. It probably had something to do with being an introvert and feeling more confident to express my opinions through online discussions, etc.By the way I read your review of \”In the Shadow of the Banyan Tree\” and was very interested in your thoughts on it. I haven't read it myself, but I have seen it on a few of my fellow blogger's blogs. However, yours is the first review I have read, though. I have considered reading it, but I might wait and read some more reviews before I decide.Good luck with your online class!

  10. Having some anonymity will actually be a good thing for me in this class too. I feel like a poetry dunce so that will probably help me speak up ;)Yea, check out some other reviews on Banyan. I know that a lot of people have liked it. I liked it ok, I just didn't loooove it.Thanks! And thanks for visiting and commenting πŸ™‚

  11. I actually haven't read To Kill a Mockingbird… I know, I know! But I'm pretty sensitive to injustice and I fear that the book might get me really down.

  13. My dad just finished The Garden of Beasts and loved it. He finished it in a week, and my dad is one of the slowest readers I know. I will be curious to see if you love it just as much as he did!

  14. Thanks Lettie πŸ˜‰ I have a whole list of books that I should have read by now..we probably all do! Thanks for the good luck wishes, I'm excited/nervous about the class. I just hope it's not totally over my head!
