Happy Reading!!


  1. I read Carry the One this past April. I felt like rich characters were sacrificed because the author wanted to cover a lot of issues. But maybe you will like it more than I did!

  2. Wow, some great library books! I love Joyce Carol Oates but I haven't read many of her short stories. Hope you like The Fault In Our Stars, I couldn't out it down. Happy reading!

  3. State of Wonders and Carry the One are both great reads, at least they were in my opinion ;) I don't think I've seen that short story collection of JCOates. One to add to the tbr pile!

    I have to mention that we share the same name and we're practically neighbors! (I'm a Wisconsin girl)

    I hope you have a great week of reading!!
