Hello booknerds!!! I hope you've had a lovely week...
I have a very bad head cold right now, and it is making it hard to concentrate and read anything :(
So, I've been catching up on some old movies... and snuggling in with my little ones, who all have stuffy noses as well, lol. 

Things seem to be picking up around here, finally! Lots of reviews to come in February - such a short month and I am completely booked, and on some days, double booked! 
Can't wait to share all the fun stuff :)

SO, how was your book week??? 


  1. Nice haul.

    I've had One Hundred Names on my wish list since it was announced on Amazon in the UK. Unfortunately, it's currently in a big wish list pile.

    Enjoy your reads and please feel free to check out my haul post at http://thewanderingbookworm.wordpress.com/2014/02/01/book-haul-1-february-2014/

  3. I hope you and your family feel better soon. Nice haul too not books that I have come across.

  4. It's so great to see you back regularly, Margie! I'm sorry you've been sick this week though. *hugs* I'll be curious to see what you think of One Hundred Names. Cecelia Ahern used to be one of my absolute favourite authors, but I haven't really enjoyed her last few books...I actually ended up DNFing One Hundred Names, which made me SO sad because I wanted to love it like I loved all her earlier books. I hope you enjoy it though!
