  1. wow those h.f. covers are really pretty!
    hope you have a great week!

  2. Ooh I'm keen on reading By Fire, By Water. Looking forward to your thoughts. Have a great week :-)

  3. OOh you read A Thousand Splendid Suns! I looked at that one today and almost added it to my reads for the upcoming week but passed due to other book commitments. Soon though :)

  4. I liked your Review for So Cold the River. That book has one of those cover that every time I pass it on the shelf, I just want to reach out and touch it. Good to know that book sounds like it is worth the read. Have a great week.

  5. Oh, how I want to read Cutting for Stone! But it is SOOO LONG!
    Have a great reading week.
    Here is my week in review:

  6. GDM - it is long and it took me all week to read because it's one to savour every word. Wonderful story.

    Thanks for visiting, everyone.

  7. I loved A Thousand Splendid Suns. Have you read the Kite Runner - another excellent Khaled Hosseini book. Jane Austen is also on my to read list - I'll get there one day!

  8. I really want to read A Thousand Splendid Suns, I'll have to read your review of it when I get the chance!

    Hope you have a fabulous week! Mine is here:

  9. Nice, nice! Looks like you have a few classic lined up there. Hope you enjoy!

  10. Oooh good books! I enjoyed By Fire, By Water, loved A Thousand Splendid Suns as well as Northanger Abbey. I have been wanting to read The Burning Wire. Have a wonderful week reading. My MOnday can be found here:

  11. I enjoyed your review of the Lady of Butterflies, and I am wondering how you liked My Name is Memory? I know a lot of readers didn't like the ending, but I really enjoyed the book. Have great week

  12. I own My Name is Memory but I haven't had time to read it yet. I am glad you enjoyed A Thousand Splendid Suns. I really liked it and I thought The Kite Runner was even better. By Fire, By Water looks really interesting.

    Have a great week!

  13. You've listed two of my favorite novels: Northanger Abbey and Star of the Sea. I often feel like Northanger Abbey is overlooked when people consider reading Jane Austen, but I loved it.

    have a great reading week!

  14. Northanger Abbey is on my list TBR. It looks like you have some great reads there. Visiting you from 'Til We Read Again:

  15. Lots of intriguing books! My Name is Memory has been on my list...

    Hope you enjoy them all, and thanks for visiting my blog.

  16. Nice Monday! Mine is here. Have a good week reading! Katie x

  17. Jan - it was ok. I thought the ending was unsatisfying until I read somewhere that there's a sequel coming .

    Nancy - I've certainly overlooked NA until now but I'm really enjoying it.

  18. Hi Cat,

    I'm reading the Zan-Gah books, too. I'll be interested to see what you thought of them.

    Here's my Monday

  19. I am very much intrigued with By Fire By Water....I look forward to your thoughts on the read.
