Book Blogger Hop 4/5 to 4/11


What book have you've been meaning to read forever AND you finally did?


There are quite a few books that I have been "dying" to read, but the one that stands out in my mind is one my son bought for me while he was on vacation in the UK.

I finally surprised him by reading BELOW THE STAIRS by Margaret Powell.


  1. THANKS for stopping by.

    Happy Hopping!!

  3. Haven't stopped by in a long while! Haven't heard of that book, but there are quite a lot of books I can't wait to read!

  4. That's a tough question: i think Son by Lois Lowry had been on my list since last summer. I finally got to it in March and loved it! Can't wait to go back and read the other 3 books.

  5. I bet that made him happy! My book would be Gone Girl.

  6. I want to read that book, but I can't think of one I've been wanting to read forever and finally got to. I want to read "Ulysses," but I don't know if I ever will.


  7. I wish I could find more time read.

  8. Not a special one but I love buying books, so I always end up with a huge TBR pile. I have started reading a book from the pile at least every other time so that I will get to the older ones. ;-)

    Glad you're back, I've missed your posts.

  9. Thank you, Marianne.

    How sweet of you.

  10. I've not read that book, but the way you put "dying" in quotations made me think of all the zombie novels I've been reading, or vampire works, it just gave me a chuckle!

    Also, I'm sure you made your son endlessly happy, I am always thrilled when my parents actually read the books I give them.

  11. I have been meaning to read "The Fault in our Stars" for forever and finally started it. Love it so far!

  12. Have you heard of Katie MacAlister? She has a book called The Corset Diaries
    . It is about a group of people on a reality tv show pretending it is 1879. And everyone must be true to the time. No microwaves, no can openers, no dishsoap, Oy!

    It is told in journal format from the main protagonist. The stories of the trails and tribulations of the house staff is a real eye opener. I really enjoyed it. :)

  13. My whole TBR Bookshelf needs to be tackled. But I finally read Silver Sparrow! FINALLY! It has only been one year (on the shelf) and 10 months (at the bookstore).
