Melissa (melitious) | 254 comments We have a couple of books in common to read this year. And you have a few that I've already read. We will have to discuss. :-)

Heather Most definitely!

Heather 3 books down so far. I've started "The Book: A Cover-to-Cover Exploration of the Most Powerful Object of Our Time"


message 5: by Heather (new)

Heather "The Book" is fascinating, but reads a bit like a text book. I've taken a bit of a break & am reading through the Secret Society Girl series. Such great, easy reads!


message 6: by Heather (new)

Heather I'm working on "The Book" and "Root Cause". Both are slower reads. I'm taking notes while reading "Root Cause", so that really slows me down. I need to get moving on it though!


message 7: by Heather (new)

Heather I just finished "In a Sunburned Country". Getting started on "The Book" again. Just need to chip away at that one!


message 8: by Heather (new)

Heather I read Brown Girl Dreaming instead of The Crossover for the Newbury Award Winner/Honor Book. It was so much better than I thought it would be. I'm not usually a poetry person, but it was so well written & was such an easy read.


message 9: by Heather (new)

Heather I recently finished "Happiness Project" & "Mary Poppins". I'm working on "For the Love" now.


message 10: by Heather (new)

Heather Just finished “For the Love”. It wasn’t really what I was expecting it to be. Not bad, just not what I expected.


message 11: by Heather (new)

Heather Just finished “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child”. I feel like I need to go see it now!
