It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

Between Thanksgiving and our annual after Thanksgiving party, I spent a lot of time cooking and eating and not so very much time reading and reviewing. But now that I am pleasantly sated and shouldn't need to eat again until Christmas rolls around, I can dive back into my books! This meme is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

Margot by Jillian Cantor

  1. I see several books on your list that I enjoyed, like The Group, Orphan Train, and The Autobiography of Us.

    And yes, you'd think we wouldn't have to eat again until Christmas...right? LOL
