  1. Yes, the Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place!! I love that series!

    I just finished reading The War That Saved My Life, and I agree that it was amazing. I’ve got a hold on the sequel at the library, and it can’t come in fast enough!

  2. Wow, I have so much to comment on this month. What She Ate has been in my stack but others that are getting to it before me and making me hesitant to read it. Your thoughts have been similar to others. I’ve been close to purchasing 10% Happier on Kindle Deals or with my Audible credits and I’m glad I hadn’t yet. Your review is exactly what was holding me back. I have never heard of an Illuminated Bible so I can’t wait to hear all about it. Cork Dork has been in my pile too and I haven’t been pulled into reading it either. The War that Saved My Life and The War I Finally Won have just appeared on my radar and now you are raving about them too! I will definitely have to read them! Some great reading for you! Thanks for the link up!

  3. I’m definitely going to check out Everybody Writes. Sounds really interesting. Happy reading!
