First of all, how did you survive internet drought for two days???

I love how you have your titles organized. You’ve many authors I haven’t read so I’m very much interested in your feedback on these titles. That Karen Abbott book sounds SO good!!

Have a great reading month!

It wasn't easy LOL I used my phone as a hotspot to get to the emails that were crucial, but spent most of the rest of the time reading :)

"You’ve many authors I haven’t read so I’m very much interested in your feedback on these titles. That Karen Abbott book sounds SO good!!"
It does, doesn't it? I hope it lives up to everything I've heard about it.

I can already say that won't happen, sorry! I'm stingy with stars, so I rarely give five stars -- lots of four and four and a half stars (in my mind, half stars are a thing!), but very few five stars in all the time I've been on GR.

Lol! I'm like that too. It is rare for me to give 5 stars and it is usually a book that really touched me in some way or one that I will re-read.

I was nodding at what you had to say until I got to the re-read bit. I won't say that I *never re-read, but it's rare, usually only for my F2F book group. There are too many "new" books out there waiting to be read to spend time re-reading books :)

Viki (vikir) | 638 comments What a great list. I see that you like cozies. J do too, they are some nice easy reads.

I must say that I re-read a lot less now that I'm on Goodreads. As you say, too many bright and shiny new ones.
