Mary Beth  | 974 comments OMG! I am rereading Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
too. I started it today. I am on page 25. Do you want to buddy read it with me? I am reading it with other books. Also didnt forget about For the sake of Elena. I promise we will get to that this month. Also I want to read All The Pretty Girls this month. Do you want to buddy read that also this month. I really want to start that series. It looks so good.


Kris - My Novelesque Life (mynovelesquelife) | 2441 comments Thank you, Angela :)


Kris - My Novelesque Life (mynovelesquelife) | 2441 comments Sure!! I am not very far either as I started it but then needed to read some for reviews. Yes, to All the Pretty Girls too! When were you thinking for the latter?


message 11: by Mary Beth (new)

Mary Beth  | 974 comments Yeah! I was thinking Harry Potter now, Elizabeth George at the halfway of the month, then All the Missing Girls at the end of the month if that is OK with you.


Kris - My Novelesque Life (mynovelesquelife) | 2441 comments Sounds perfect! Thanks for planning it for us!

I've had the first book in Andrea Kane's series on my TBR for ages. Need to move it up.


Kris - My Novelesque Life (mynovelesquelife) | 2441 comments I quite like this series...it's kind of like the show Bones - serious but with fun quirky characters. Let me know what you think when you get to it!

First, I'm loving your visuals!!! Putting me in a reading mood.

I'm very interested in The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield. I think I have that book or something else by her. And, I'm dying to read something by Chris Bohjalian. I have at least three of his books.

Have a great time!


Kris - My Novelesque Life (mynovelesquelife) | 2441 comments Thank you so much, Jonetta <3

I have read The Double Bind and Before You Know Kindness and enjoyed them. If you ever want to do a buddy read let me know :)
