    1. I am slow getting around to Still Alice, having read two other books by this author (which I loved). I had to be in the right frame of mind for it…looking forward to The Bookstore, too. Thanks for stopping by, Monika.

  1. I’m curious about A Desirable Residence. Looks like we’ll be reading some of the same books in the next few weeks, as I have ARCS of Return to Tradd Street and The Book Store. A copy of The Wife, The Maid and The Mistress waiting for me at the library.

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

    1. Yes, when I first read Wickham (Sleeping Arrangements), I wasn’t even aware that she was the alter-ego of Sophie Kinsella. I have enjoyed this version of her. I have been wanting to read Still Alice for quite awhile.

      Thanks for visiting, Kristin, and have a great week.

  2. Nice posts this week, especially liked your cozy Monday and snowy and rainy days. A good day off and time spent reading or watching a good movie is very appealing.

    Congratulations on your new novel! I like your new page as well.

    1. As I mentioned, I had already bought the MW book (my first one in this incarnation) before I realized she was also Sophie Kinsella. It was great to see another side to her writing.

      Thanks for visiting, Trish. Enjoy your reading, too.

  3. Will be interested to your thoughts on The Bookstore. I read it from NetGalley and I saw it on the local book store shelves here in NZ. I must look up to see how it is doing out in the land of books since it published.
    Have a great week of reading.

  4. Still Alice is so well-written! A tough subject because my father-in-law had Alzheimer’s but in Genova’s capable hands I found it to be a wonderful novel.
