That’s what my week looks like!  Come on by and let’s chat….don’t forget the coffee!



    1. I kept hoping it would show up on Vine…and when it didn’t, I got it at Barnes & Noble with a discount coupon. A nice benefit. I read a really great review of it, which helped me decide. Thanks for stopping by, Harvee, and enjoy your weekend!


    1. I forgot what it was…I wasn’t there for the photo op, and my daughter told me what he was eating, and then it flew right out of my mind! Something with whipped cream! LOL Thanks for stopping by, Bryan.


  1. Glad you had a nice Thanksgiving.

    Finding Colin Firth sounds great and I have it on my Kindle. Do I have to read The Meryl Streep Movie Club first? I didn’t realize they were connected until I read your review.

    I was sent Morning Glory for a review and it looks good.

    Have a great week!


    1. Oh, no, each book stands alone…it was a nice surprise, however, to revisit characters from The Meryl Streep Movie Club.

      I am eager to dive into Morning Glory, too. I love books set in Seattle…especially the houseboat books.

      Thanks for visiting, Yvonne, and enjoy your weekend.


    1. I have heard good things about The Rosie Project, so I’m eager to read it. Soon, I hope. And What I Had Before You will be near the top of my queue, because it’s a review book.

      Thanks for visiting, Lucy, and enjoy your week.


  2. I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on The Things That Keep Us Here! I still remember it greatly.
    I love the Sarah Jio book cover. I still have to read her, it’s part of my to-do list for 2014!


  3. Such good books, didn’t know about Ahern’s new one. Have always loved Joanna Trollope. Was looking at The Spanish Lover this week. Wish I could remember the first book I read by her. Need to visit her website. Loved Jio’s first novel. Can’t wait to read this one. She’s wonderful.
    Liked your son’s Feng photo. Also enjoyed Noah’s photo. Always have loved the name Noah. Had a cat named Noah. Had to return him. He would get under tables and bite my ankles. Well, hope to see you during the week.


    1. I hadn’t even thought much about The Rosie Project…until I read some reviews. And then saw the book in B & N…and had a discount coupon….Thanks for visiting, Sam, and I’m eager to read the Ahern book, too.


Please leave your thoughts. Comments, not awards, feed my soul. Thanks!
