It's so much easier to compile my monthly TBR when I wait a few days to see what books I have started!  ;-)


I requested Woodlawn from NetGalley to read with my star athlete 12 year old...let's just say I may end up reading it by myself. The Stand is a book club read that I am enjoying more than I anticipated, though I am less than 100 pages into this 1000 page book. On the other hand, The Herald of Hell, another NetGalley read, looks right up my alley and I'm having a difficult time getting into it. I guess 2016 is going to be full of surprises!
