Favorites from this big list: A Man Called Ove, Every Falling Star. Anne of Green Gables, Love and Gelato.

Plans for the summer:  Read as much as I can. Keep up with book club books. That's it. That's my plan. :)


  1. After reading By Your Side, my faith in Kasie West's books has been restored, so I think I'll try some more. That lottery one sounds fun.

  2. I need to get my hands on Love and Gelato. After you talked about it I’m intrigued. I really do think you should make time for Being Friends With Boys. I think you’ll like it.

  3. You've read quite a bit. At book club, you always make it sound like you're not reading very much, but you're reading just fine, I think.
