"All the best stories in the world are but one story in reality -- the story of escape. It is the only thing which interests us all and at all times, how to escape."

I finished "the Heroines" by Eileen Favorite this weekend. It was a great premise that didn't pan out for me.

Started "Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress" about the re-education program in China. Very interesting so far.

Have a good Monday!

Thanks everyone for stopping by. While cozies are my absolute favorite genre. I love to read almost anything with the exception of vampires, werewolves, etc. paranormal and sci-fi. Those books I leave to my kids, especially my daughters.

jlshall said...

You had a really good week of reading! And more good stuff lined up, it seems. I really want to read something by Debbie Macomber one of these days - it's really amazing how fast she can turn these books out! Enjoy!

Chrissie said...

The Joanna Carl books look like a lot of fun! Hope you have another great reading week this week :)

Nikki-ann said...

You've done well! It looks like you've been reading some great books too.

Take care :)

Hilde said...

I take it Call Me Mrs Miracle is a sequel to Mrs Miracle from 1996? I read the latter a couple of years ago and really liked it, so this one's going on my wishlist.

This is my first time visiting your wonderful blog, and I'm now a new follower. :)

dollycas aka Lori said...

Love new followers and yes, Hilde it is a sequel but one of the things I love about Debbie Macomber books is that they can all stand alone. I think the Cedar Cove series should be read in order though.


Stephanie said...

I love visiting you blog as I always find some interesting reads to add to my TBR pile. This is the perfect time of the year to pull out those 'cozies', don't you think?

Have a great reading week!

Sheila (Bookjourney) said...

I forgot to mention - did you see my post of the Minnesota Wisconsin book blogger meet up in October? Not sure if it is something you are interested in but check it out and let me know :)

Aths said...

You have a great set of books for the week! Plus that feature sounds great! I'll have to come back and check it out! Have fun!

The1stdaughter said...

I love the look of those Kate Collins books, so cute! And I keep seeing little bits of "Christmasy" books popping up her and there and I can hardly wait! So exciting!

Have a fabulous reading week and if you get a second stop by There’s A Book to take a look at what I’ve got planned for the week! :)

Crystal - Princess of Pop Culture said...

Sounds like a great week! Have a good one :)

Julie P said...

I am going to check out the Collins books on Goodreads. Thanks for sharing, and hope you have a wonderful reading week!

Tara said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I think Sh*t my Dad says actually starts this week! I will have to try to catch it! I wonder if it will be as laugh out loud hilarious as the book. It's a quick, but really funny and different, type of read! Have a great day!
