This weekly chance to add to your reading list is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.
Our town had its Fall Festival this past weekend, which is always a fun time. Lots of craft booths and apple cider and a tractor show (I live in a farming area, in case you can't tell). The weather didn't exactly cooperate - it was cold and rainy most of the time. But the indoor activities were still a lot of fun. I love this time of year!
The Orchid House by Lucinda Riley (Loved this book!)
The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt (I'm enjoying it so far. I haven't read many Pulitzer Prize winners before (this is only my second one), and I'm finding it surprisingly readable. Hopefully that continues through the next 500 pages!)
The Queen of the Big Time by Adriana Trigiani (I have a feeling I'll need something a bit lighter after The Goldfinch, and I figured Adriana Trigiani was a safe bet. :)

I've heard a few people say that they enjoyed one of her books but not the other one so much. I haven't read anything else by her, so I have nothing to compare it to! It's been an interesting read so far.

Queen of the Big Time sounds very interesting. I'll have to add it to my TBR pile. Can't wait to see what you have to say about it. :)

I've really enjoyed the few books I've read by Adriana Trigiani. I hope you enjoy Queen of the Big Time if you get a chance to read it!

I haven't read anything by Donna Tartt before, so The Goldfinch has been an interesting experience. I'm looking forward to Adriana Trigiani at the end of this 700-page book!

I agree - it does look intimidating. But it's a fairly fast read, so the many pages go by quickly.

My name is Julie, and I own a lot of books. As in, they are stacked on the floor because I've run out of room on the shelves. And those shelves? There are so many books on them that they smile -- not sag; smile. This blog will cover book reviews and all manner of other bookish things.
