The Sunday Salon #4

Good Morning all!

I had a pretty good reading week this week. While I only finished one book (Size 14 is Not Fat Either) I managed to carve out a little bit of time to read other stuff. I didn't love Size 14, but it was good, perfect for what it is. I generally do enjoy chick lit, but find that not all of it is as silly.

Then I finally started Love Walked In by Marisa de los Santos, which most of you have already read. I'm only about 50 pages in, but it's flows really nicely and I'm enjoying it. I read a few more pages of the Georgette Heyer I won a few months back, and then last night I almost finished Death Masks by Jim Butcher (Harry Dresden #5). I plan to wrap that up this morning.

I've gotten in a few more books from paperbackswap this week, and a couple of them are calling my name: Just Listen by Sarah Dessen (compared to Speak, which I LOVED), Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher, and Mr. Cavendish, I Presume by Julia Quinn. I also got Hurry Down Sunshine by Michael Greenberg from the publisher to review, and for once I'd like to read a book at the same time everyone else does! There is also a rumor that there might be a box of Hachette books headed my way! And, I wanted to try to read the next Kim Harrison, as my friend Gina recently reviewed it and says I'll love it. I need to face the facts, I'm never ever gonna read it all.

Speaking of which, does anyone know if you can put just your wishlist on hold but not your bookshelf at Paperbackswap? I don't want to do a vacation hold, I still want to send books OUT, but I'd like to pause getting new ones IN, if possible. I need a chance to catch up and weed out what I've got. I also don't want to decline books and lose my place.


  1. Looks like you've got a bunch of good ones on the go or waiting in the wings. I haven't read Loved Walked In, but looking forward to your thoughts on it.

  2. I am glad to hear you are enjoying Love Walked In. I've been wanting to read that one for awhile now. Maybe eventually I will get to it. Like so many other books, it's just waiting patiently for me right there on my shelf. So, I can completely relate to your thought that you may never get to them all. We sure will try though, won't we? And have fun doing it! Have a great week, Lisa!

  3. *Hurry Down Sunshine* was well-written, difficult to read at times (as a parent reading about another parent's struggle with the madness that has overtaken his daughter), but fair and honest.

    My review is here if you want to take a peek:

  4. I really loved Thirteen Reasons Why. . . I'll be interested to see what you think!

  5. I've heard really good things about Love Walked In--hope you enjoy it! And a book a week is pretty darn good...other than the read-a-thon, I've been doing terribly this month! I've been working on my current book for two weeks now and I'm not even halfway through. :( I've never used PBS so I can't help you there.

    Enjoy what's left of your Sunday!

  6. I love the Dresden series but am only on #4. Sounds like you are reading a bunch of good books. I'll look forward to your reviews!

  7. I can't wait until you read them all so that you can pass the ones you like to me. :)

    PS. Finished the last Harrison this weekend. It was also a winner.

  8. From the variety of comments to this post, it looks like I've got some good readind ahead of me!

    I finished the Butcher, and took the next one to bed. (I don't like reading hardback or trade paperbacks in bed, which the other's all are. In fact, I don't really like to read in bed at all. Scandalous, I know.)

    Dawn, I'm headed over to read your review now. I think I may have already read it, that it's one of the reasons I accepted when the book was offered, but I'm not sure. No offense bloggers, but a lot of times reviews start blending together.

    Janssen, I hope to get to that one soon. Well, sooner than most.
