  1. You had a very festive Oct reading month. I typically wait til Dec to read seasonal books, and this year I have very few review copies that publish in Nov/Dec so I intend to read the books I didn't get to this year and a couple of holiday books I've got onhand. Not much brand new. I'm looking forward to the new Anne Tyler book, I'll need to request it!
    Happy Reading!!

    1. Yes I couldn't wait to dig I to my holiday reads! I love Anne Tyler can't wait to read it.

  2. I'm so jealous that you've received a copy of Saving Grace by Jane Green; can't wait to read that one! I'm looking forward to Stillwater Rising, as well, and I have a holiday-themed book I'm about to start which is always fun! Did you get some cooler weather down there? We sure did! Hope you had a great weekend!
