  7. I had to go back to the top of your post to be sure I hadn't missed something - I did - I thought you had read ALL of those blockbusters in one week!

    I am SO GLAD you loved Karen White's new book. Normally I adore her books but the last one felt formulaic to me. What I've read of this one sounds more like my absolute favorite book of her - On Folly Beach - have you read it?

    1. That is the one I have never read, but I have loved every other one I read.

      Flight Patterns was amazing.

      LOL on thinking I had read all of those in one week. The reason I put that note is because someone else last week thought the same thing.

      Thank you for stopping, Stacy.

  20. What a terrific, reading week you've had. And what a line up for future reviews. How you must rub your hands in glee when you receive fresh, new covers in the mail.
    Mahalo for dropping by. Kimchi is basically like fermented/picked vegetables. It's usually served as a side dish with a Korean meal; do you go out for Korean food? It's spicy. There are all kinds: the traditional Napa cabbage, chunky radish, cucumber, and I even saw bok choy on Pinterest. I just pinned a pin last night on how kimchi is really good for you: its probiotics will make you digest better than before, the vitamins A-B-C will fight disease and slow down ageing, it's packed full of antioxidents and will fight free radicals in your body, and your cholesterol will drop.
