I really liked Garden Spells. Have a great week!

Sarah (My World of Books) said...

I really want to read Water for Elephants, but I probably won't watch the movie. I am not a fan of Robert Pattinson so I probably wouldn't enjoy it! Have a great week!

I love Sarah Addison Allen's books. Happy reading! My mailbox is at The Crowded Leaf.

Congrats on your new job! Hopefully you will be able to get back to reading when you are all settled in the new job. Hang in there!

Congratulations on the new job, the good thing about books they will wait for you to get to them. I can prove that by my large number of TBR book stacks. :)

Here's my week:
