  1. One romance and one psychological thriller have swept me away!

    Here is my response!

    1. Oh, I read Tara French's THE LIKENESS a while back, and enjoyed it. It's a terrific book, and would recommend it to readers who like soft, easy-to-read thrillers without all the technical jargon. I actually have her latest book on my list of books to read. :)

    2. I think I'll read FAITHFUL PLACE as soon as I'm done with my current read.

  6. My post can be found here on! I couldn't pick just one for this RTW, so there's three. Sort of.

    On an unrelated note, I can't get my OpenID to not display me as anonymous on this website and I've been trying for forty-five minutes. :(

    1. Oops, it did it. Sorry. False alarm.

  7. Here is the book that really swept me off my feet!!


  8. On out post this week we have a link to an animated version of Eve Bunting's Terrible Things. This one knocked my socks of. Soft and every so terrifying.

    On the fun side - A Hero's Guide to Saving the Kingdom. I adore the slightly snarky narrative voice.

  9. "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks." Not YA, but a great read.

    Unfortunately, I can't fix the font on my blog post... Still getting used to Wordpress :) And I'm also trying to figure out why I'm listed as anonymous when I'm signing on from Wordpress.

  10. Has it seriously been that many Wednesdays? Thanks for every one of them!

  11. Love this blog! I've been meaning to start with RTW for a while now. Here's mine:
