    I have to go over and thank Jenn from Jenn’s Bookshelves for Tweeting about your giveaway! First, these are stunning! Beautiful!! LOVE THEM…but as I’m looking at your reviews, I’m wondering why I’m just now finding out about your blog. Anyone who enjoys Chris Grabenstein, George Pelecanos, Jacqueline Winspear…Oh, my goodness.

    I also enjoyed Guernsey Literary and Potatoe Peel Pie Society. I have Interred with their Bones on my shelf to be read. And I’m still hoping to get to Tallgrass.

    I’m following you now, Laura! Thanks

    Wow, those are really gorgeous, I’d love any of them! I’m an RSS subscriber, and I’d love to read either “The Wednesday Sisters” because I’ve had a copy since it was first released and haven’t gotten to it yet, or “Little Brother” because I hear so much about the author but haven’t read him yet.
