  1. So glad you gave the Strout and Paolo books 5 stars. I've just started the Strout and love the writing already. I will put the Paolo book on my radar too. thanks

  2. A great month indeed! I picked up the Giordano book from the library and can't wait to read it.

  3. I loved My Name is Lucy Barton, too, and look forward to reading Like Family when the TBR Dare is over.

  4. You had a great month of reading! I will be reading Like Family.

  5. Looks like you had a great reading month! I have My Name Is Lucy Barton on my 'ToRead' list. I'm glad you rated it with 5 stars.

  6. Awesome month! And you and I shared a favorite book of January :)

  7. I still have to write my review for Under the Influence. Do you follow Maynard on Facebook at all? She spoke of her own concerns over wine and now I am seeing how the character of Helen came to be.

  8. Yay, you! What a great month with lots of winners! I wish I had enjoyed Like Family as much as you... Glad to know you enjoyed When Breath Becomes Air. I'm reading it today, as I'm home on a Snow Day! I may never leave my couch. ;)

  9. You had a great month! Happy February!

  10. Looks like you had a pretty good reading month - I hope February proves to be much the same.
