  2. I haven't heard of this one before, but the descriptions remind me that as much as I complain about the hot weather where I live, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be able to survive in a cold climate. Enjoy your weekend!

  3. Grandmother in a tattoo? Now that's intriguing. I've heard good things about this one.

  5. This looks different from the books I usually read - but it does tempt me.

  7. I don't want to even think about winter now that the weather is so nice. This could be a good book for July or August when it's sweltering, lol.

  12. LOL My grandmother would never rest in peace if I had anything of her tattooed on me. Or any kind of tattoo for that matter! I'd love for your readers check out mine ... http://tinyurl.com/LisaKsBookReviewKT

  13. I've seen this book around quite a bit lately- almost ordered it but wasn't sure - I do like both the beginning and the 56 a lot though. Thanks for visiting my post earlier!

I only have until September 19th to get this book done. It's good though and I should be done in no time.
