  5. Much Ado About Loving sounds interesting! I am looking forward to your review. :)

    I really enjoyed Angela's Ashes, but is that the book where McCourt kept saying about eyes looking like two piss holes in the snow? I have no idea why but that really sticks out in my mind! Lol.

  7. Angela's Ashes was such an emotional read, and The Reader still haunts me. I read the book before watching the movie so I was struck by the unfolding of events. I hope you enjoy your current selections!
    Happy Reading,

  11. I love your no pressure reading approach!
    I made an effort to only sign up for challenges that I would actually enjoy rather than ones I would force myself to take part in :)

    Much Ado About Loving sounds very interesting and useful!

  15. Honestly, Jennifer, football puts me right to sleep. Sunday afternoon is naptime for me. But if the Packers winning makes you happy, then I will be happy about it too.
    Enjoy your books this week!
