    1. Thanks for stopping, Marianne.

      Good to see you haven't read many either.

      I need to get "reading."

  2. I have read The Girl On The Train, Big Little Lies, The Husband's Secret and Ordinary Grace. The last one, Ordinary Grace, was read with my mystery book group. It was not a traditional mystery at all, but we had a great discussion.

    1. Ordinary Grace was so good. I read it on my own and loved it.

      Good to see you have read four of them.

      I wonder if anyone has read all of them. That will be interesting.

      Thanks for stopping, Kay.

    I have not read the Nightingale or Boys on the Boat.

  6. I haven't read any of these books, but I tend to read all the "hot" books late because I get 99% of my books from the library. "The Rosie Project" is the only one on my library waiting list. I either haven't heard of or am not interested in the rest of them.

  7. Hmm I have read four and have two on my bookshelf so I think I am doing okay! There are a couple of others I have been meaning to read so have just put Zevin's name into my brain for next time at the book shop!

  9. Elizabeth, I have not read any of these, although I've read about many of these! I think I should join a book club, one of these days. My reading and blogging have really slowed down this summer, but I hope to get my reading and blogging mojo back soon! :)
