2 Non Reviews

I finished two books today, but I'm not going to post reviews on either one of them ... yet. Here's what I read:

  • Kiss Me, I'm Single: An Ode to the Solo Life by Amanda Ford. It's an upbeat little book with a lot of wisdom packed inside - watch for my review and more info on March 5, when Amanda stops by for a visit.

  • The Vile Village by Lemony Snicket. This is Book the Seventh in the A Series of Unfortunate Events series. The books are all pretty similar and there are 13 of them, so I thought I would wait and review the whole series when I finish it. It's such a fun, quirky series. I agree with the reviewer who called them "formulaic," but I'm still enjoying these quick YA novels.

  • I'm now reading People of the Book by Geraldine Brooks. I've heard a lot about this one, and I can't wait to dive in. I enjoyed both March and A Year of Wonders, so I expect I'll like this one, too.

That's it for now. Keep the entries coming for The Bookseller of Kabul - I'm loving all of your comments!


  1. Oooh, I've got PEOPLE OF THE BOOK here to pick up soon. YOu'll have to let us know what you think. My book group is doing YEAR OF WONDERS this next month. I'm looking forward to it.

  2. I really enjoyed PEOPLE OF THE BOOK, and I have to say that it's totally different from MARCH and YEAR OF WONDERS. I just received KISS ME, I'M SINGLE in the mail last week and it's my next book to read! I'll be anxious to hear what you think.

  3. I'm in the middle of People of the Book, and I'm really enjoying it. I wish that I had reviewed March and Year of Wonders, so I could go back and look at my thoughts! I didn't, unfortunately, and my mind is kind of sketchy on both books. I know I liked them, I just can't remember many details...

    Julie - I enjoyed Kiss Me. It's a really quick read, but it actually has a lot of substance. It was interesting reading for me, even though I never had much of a single life!

  4. Just wanted to stop by and welcome you to the 100+ Challenge. Your blog's link is posted in the right sidebar.

    Have Fun! :0)


Comments make me feel special, so go crazy! Just keep it clean and civil. Feel free to speak your mind (I always do), but be aware that I will delete any offensive comments.

P.S.: Don't panic if your comment doesn't show up right away. I have to approve each one before it posts to prevent spam. It's annoying, but it works!
