  2. It's good to read books that we don't usually read. It gets us out of our comfort zone and challenges us.:-)

  3. I was thought maybe I had commented on a number of #IMWAYR posts from the link-up, but then I saw those colorful rowhomes (?) from your header and had to head over here too! :O)

    I swear, if I've seen "Leopard at the Door" e.v.e.r.y.w.h.e.r.e! If I don't read it soon, I think I will burst. :p

    Have a great week, Elizabeth!

  6. I literally LOL with your comment on Almost Sisters I'm never that far ahead in my reading. The Book of Summer will also be one I'm reading in Spring. I received Things We Have In Common last week, it looks like something right up my alley...we shall see. Have a wonderful week.

    1. You are making me smile with your comment. :)

      THINGS WE HAVE IN COMMON was odd, but kept my interest. The main character made me very nervous.

      Thanks for stopping, Anita.

  7. Hi Elizabeth,

    Kirk spotted a comment I had left on one of your earlier posts about 'Land Of Hidden Fires' and kindly provided a complimentary Kindle download for me to read. It will be interesting to compare our thoughts, although I shan't be reading my copy for some time yet!

    'Happy Reading'

  8. Hmm interesting reading a kind of book that is a bit different. Just today I received from NG The Book of Summer because the cover and description appealed. So a book in common!

    1. It has an odd main character and is a bit different because of the point of view, but it is well written.

      The Book of Summer should be marvelous. So glad you have a copy.

      Thanks for stopping, Kathryn.
