  5. I've treated myself to Girl at War for my upcoming trip to Croatia as there have been so many stunning reviews. I can't wait to read it. I also like the look of that non-fiction selection...

  7. First of all...love your flashing graphics! I'm impressed! Glad you had a great reading month! The Shore was a good one for me as well in May....and I read Boo in May, but it didn't really do it for me. Looking forward to reading Girl at War before the year is out.

    1. I loved parts of Boo but there were parts that didn't work for me as well. I have mixed feelings! I think we *might* chat about it on The Socratic Salon. That always helps me work through my thoughts.
