    1. It is a difficult choice! I'm working my way through my stacks and I'm getting down to where it's very hard to pick what to read next :)

  3. I'm holding you to all of the books that you said you'd read, as long as you hold me to all of the books I said I would read in my weekly wrap-up post too. Okay, then, well, that's not going to happen. ;)

  4. I loved the guest posts you did this week! And the CAPTCHA challenge is SAVING MY SANITY! Lol. I've noticed several fewer with it turned on, thank goodness.

  5. I have a copy of The Affairs of Others that I haven't gotten to yet, so you should read that one...and then I'll know if I'll like it or not :)

    1. LOL! I might just do that ;) I keep seeing such mixed reviews of it. I really should give it a whirl though.

    1. Thanks :D I'm debating myself over whether to read it or not. I haven't seen any great reviews of it...that I can remember anyway. I have a terrible memory ;)

  8. I agree, it does sound like you had a busy week! As far as which book to read, I can't help, sorry. I'm always struggling with that question.

  9. I like the cover of The Measures Between Us and that it is set near Boston. I might give it a try, but based on the handful of reviews, I might wait to see what you say first...

    1. I've seen "meh" reviews for both Measures Between Us and The Affairs of Others. Rats. I never used to let those things get to me darn it. Before I blogged I just grabbed books willy nilly. If I didn't like it I'd set it aside and it didn't cause me some sort of reading crisis, lol.

  10. I so need to read the Jojo Moyes book. I like the cover on The Measures Between Us. Happy reading!
