Well, it’s like summer again here. We are all wearing shorts in mid-November, sigh. This week we went to the movies and saw The Book of Life (cute!) and Andrew saw Interstellar (he liked it). We also scored Comic-Con tix for next year (so relieved). How was your week?

Here’s my week in books:

You Were Mine by Abbi Glines – Book 9 of the Rosemary Beach series. I’ve only read book one so hopefully I can jump back into it.

  9. Hi Lucy,

    Sunday was a very summers like day, here in the UK also. Today, by contrast, has been very wet and windy, although thankfully not too cold. The words ‘gale force winds’ and ‘flood alerts’, were being bandied around by the weathermen earlier, so I guess the shorts will need to go away again!

    I volunteer in a charity shop and Abbi Glines is an author whose books I am seeing being donated more and more frequently and they also sell through just as quickly, so she is obviously very popular!

    I am also intrigued by ‘Devin Rhodes Is Dead’ and see that it has been attracting nothing but positive ratings and reviews, wherever it features. I don’t tend to read a lot of YA books, but this is one I might actually add to my list, without a review request being attached to it!

    You have some great titles this week, I hope that you enjoy them all:)

    Yvonne.

  10. Great haul this week, Lucy. I have heard good things about My True Love Gave To Me and it sounds like a super cute holiday read.

    I still really want to see Book of Life. Glad you liked it. And I am seeing Interstellar tonight. I want to see it before I read Andrew’s review. I did see Big Hero 6 though and it was super cute.

    Yay for SDCC tix! I am still waiting to hear back on mine since I applied for pro (because of my job). If they say no this year I am not sure what I’ll do. But glad you guys are all set.

    Have a fun week, Lucy!

  11. Very nice mailbox.

    The weather is very nice here too, but we are to get hit with a cold spell. Uggh, but I guess it is getting into the winter season.

    Finding Paris and Magonia look quite good.

    ENJOY all your books and your reading week.
