I also have reviews coming soon of The American Boys' Handy Book, My Father's Paradise, Peak, and The Adoration of Jenna Fox. If you've already reviewed any of those books, no need to wait. Go ahead and post the link in the comments of this post.


  1. Here is my review of Sweethearts by Sara Zarr

    I'll have a review of Ten Cents A Dance coming soon, I just finished it last night!

  2. I don't have a review to link to for The Hours but it's one book we share! woo hoo.

  3. I didn't participate in WG 2 but I've taken to doing this anyways. Unfortunately we don't share any books. ;(

  4. I haven't read any of those but the linking reviews is still a great idea. :)

  5. Becky, I went to link to your review but I realized I already have a link to your wonderful interview with Sara Zarr! I loved that you asked her to pick songs for her characters, and I snagged one of them for the "soundtrack" playlist I post in my sidebar.

    Care, I don't really have a review of The Hours, either, but I decided to include it in my list anyway. He is such a great author.

    Callista, too bad we don't share any books, maybe in the future!

  6. Just to say thanks for visiting, and I've answered your question. :)

  7. great pick for WG, I do like to swap book review links :)
    too bad we dont share any books read.

  8. The review links are a great idea, not least of because I love to read what others thought of books that I loved..or didn't love so much. And we share one of each!

    Guernica, which was one of my favorite of the year and Blue Genes, which I was not that fond of.

  9. This comment has been removed by the author.

  10. I just read your post on Michael Cunningham and right now I can't wait to read At Home at the End of the World (as it's the other Cunningham book that I have).

    I added your link to my post on Specimen Days. It's the only book we have in common. But I'm meaning to read Marjane Satrapi's Persepolis before the year ends.

    Here's the link to Specimen Days:

  11. I added my link to Guernica. I'm sorry I don't know how to make a highlighted word link without a gadget. I see you're going to review My Father's Paradise so I will come back and my review link to that one too. I stopped and read 3 other reviews while going through the list. I can see why it will take me a while to get through everyone's reviews. lol But I'm enjoying this a lot.
