Updated Book Lists! (TSS)

The Sunday

I realized a couple of weeks ago that it had been a while since I updates my read list, or posted about the great reviews I'm finding. I kept meaning to write it all up as a Sunday Salon but then Sunday would come and go and I wouldn't have done it. So I'm writing it on Thursday and will set it to publish on Sunday.  Brilliant, no? I'm sure every one of you have moments like that all the time, but frankly I'm lucky to remember which shoes will hurt my feet by 5pm each day.

So here we go!  The last time I updated this list was in January, which was an excellent month for both Mike and I. Since then, we've read the following books:

My list, title link goes to Amazon, if I reviewed it the link follows the author:

  • Keeping the Feast: One Couple's Story of Love, Food, and Healing in Italy by Paula Butturini (review)

  •  The Unlikely Disciple: A Sinner's Semester at America's Holiest University by Kevin Roose (short review)

  •  Waiting For Nick: Stanislaskis (The Stanislaskis) by Nora Roberts (incredibly short review)

  •  Born On A Blue Day: Inside the Extraordinary Mind of an Autistic Savant by Daniel Tammet (short review)

  •  Feels Like the First Time (Harlequin Blaze) by Tawny Weber (one sentence review!)

  •  Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane (review)

  • Crafty Superstar: Make Crafts on the Side, Earn Extra Cash, and Basically Have It All by Grace Dobush

  • The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot

  • Grave Secret (Harper Connelly Mysteries, Book 4) by Charlaine Harris (review)

  •  Pretty In Ink: A Tattoo Shop Mystery by Karen E Olson (review)

  • Cast Member Confidential by Chris Mitchell (review)

  • Savor the Moment (The Bride Quartet, Book 3) by Nora Roberts (review)

  • When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead (review)
