In other news, I've finished my 12 TBR books for Adam's challenge and they were excellent. I might write a post about them; one had so many good quotable lines...
Welcome back, Jean! And in good time too, for the Spin.. :)ReplyDelete
The Black Arrow is the next Stevenson I'd love to read, so I hope you'd get that.
Congratulations on completing the TBR challenge, and good luck with the spin!
Thanks, Fanda! I want it to be the Black Arrow too. I'm in the mood for some old-school children's classics!Delete
Fascinating list as always Jean. Lovely to see your name pop up on my screen. Hope you're well xoReplyDelete
Hi Brona, I'm doing great! Hope you are too. <3Delete
I enjoy seeing what other folks have on their lists. I don't recognize many of yours, but we do have one that's the same: It Can't Happen Here by Sinclair Lewis.ReplyDelete
Nice! I promised myself I would read that one this year and if it doesn't get picked that probably won't happen...Delete
Selfishly I hope you get the Turgenev. First Love is gorgeous. What a list!ReplyDelete
I wouldn't mind! I like Turgenev and that would be nice.Delete
The Black Arrow. This time for sure! ;-)ReplyDelete
Though The Leopard is awfully good.
Cross your fingers! I don't know that I have any really scary ones on the list this time, though. One time I got Faulkner's Light in August and that was awful.Delete
You always have such interesting lists! I'm rooting for The Leopard for you, as I thought it one of the absolute best books I read in 2021. Whatever you spin, enjoy!ReplyDelete
