This Week in Books

This Week In Books is all about great bloggers and the books they are reading! We are trying to support each other by sharing posts from the previous week. I invite you to take a look at some of these posts. These blogs are all wonderful, and promise some great reading!

Stop by Devourer of Books and read the review Jen wrote for A Reliable Wife by Robert Goolrick - this is another book I've got in my tbr pile.

Amy at My Friend Amy's has written a post about a chain of one dollar bookstores in Southern California, adding that she plans to make the post a regular feature.

Kathy of Bermudaonion's Weblog has written a review of Hungry Woman In Paris by Josefina Lopez. This sounds like an interesting story of one woman's life post engagement-breakup, as she travels to Paris and enrolls in culinary school.

Shelley over at Write for a Reader has a great April Fool's Giveaway going, and has the goal of reaching 100 comments prior to the deadline of April 22nd. As of my comments, she has 42, so stop by, enter to win some great books, and help Shelley reach her goal!!! She will be drawing 5 winners.

Trish over at Hey Lady! Whatcha Readin'? has a post that she talks about the possibility of an upcoming book blogger retreat in Portland, OR July 18-19th. I'm hoping to go, stop by and read about the details. . . also let me know if you would be interested in meeting near Seattle, WA June 22nd!

Stop by Beth Fish Reads and check out her review of Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher. This book explores how the actions and words of friends and fellow-students led one girl to take extreme measures in her life, and what she left behind.

Stop by S. Krishna's Books and read her review of The Lost Hours by Karen White. This book sounds amazing, mystery, stories from the past, a girl learns that her grandmother might have had a story to tell!

Carrie over at Books and Movies has written a review of Sea Changes by Gail Graham. She classifies the book as "Magical Realism", explaining that it takes place in the current day, with the addition of an alternate reality. Sounds like a very interesting book!!

Kelly over at Enroute to Life has a fun post about 80's music - stop by and watch her video - I have to admit, that I really enjoyed music in the 80's too. . . and the 90's and now!! She also has some great beauty books (Bobbi Brown's Living Beauty, and Charla Krupp's How Not To Look Old) that she is giving away!

Nicole at Linus's Blanket has written a review of Will Marry for Food, Sex and Laundry by Simon Oaks. The title of the book certainly caught my attention. :) Stop by and see what its all about.

Well, that is all for this week - I hope you will stop by and visit a few of these posts!
