Love to see Talking to the Dead on your Spring Reading Thing 2009 list!

I'd love to hear your reactions to the book. I'll be doing give-aways on my blogs as we get closer to June 1. :)

Looks like a great list - I have Susan May Warren's new one on my list as well and can't wait 'til I get my hands on it. *g*

Happy reading!

Happy reading!

Hi. Thank you for stopping by my blog. I did read the Princess Kiss to my girls and my eyes watered-sigh. I pray that they will hold onto that special kiss until their wedding day.
I just picked up The Apothecary's Daughter. It isn't on my list but I saw a wonderful review about it on 5 Minutes for Books.
Your list looks fantastic. Happy reading.

Your list looks good...some I've never heard of and will be checking out. I saw you are going to be reading The Note 2 by Angela Hunt...I didn't know there was a sequel. I read the first one and liked it. That was a book I picked up at a "Women of Faith" conference....I also got my first Karen Kingsbury book there. It was "A Time to Dance." It was GREAT!!! You said you have wanted to read her books....so I would recommend that one and the Redemption Series...but I have loved everything I have read of hers. :)

I will let you know about The Book Whisperer. I just ordered it from Amazon.com. I can't wait to read it myself. I have a 9 year old that likes to read, but is very picky about what he reads and will re-read books instead of trying new ones. I am hoping this book will give me some suggestions.

Jenners said...

Sounds like you will be busy! I'm sorry to say I haven't heard of any of these books so I don't have any comments for you!

thanks for stopping by my list ... I appreciate your input. And just to let you know, "The Ridiculous Race" is non-fiction -- two guys decide to race around the world in opposite directions and see who makes it back to Los Angeles first. And they can't fly! It looks pretty fun. I love travel narratives with humorous spins so I think it will be a winner.

Looks like you will be a busy little reader this spring :). The only one I've read is Get Out of That Pit, and I enjoyed it. Hope you like it, too.

Great list for your spring reading. I have some of the same books on tap as well.

I'm counting the days until Passion Denied by Julie Lessman comes out in bookstores! She is a tremendous author - I love her books!
