What I'm Going to Read: Round 4

And the randomly selected winner is Happy All the Time by Laurie Colwin, as suggested by Old school librarian. 

I have never heard of this book or this author before and that's always an enticing prospect. Who knows what one will find between the covers? It looks like my local library does have a copy in so I will be stopping in quite soon to get started on July's book.

Here is the full list of suggestions:

  3. When I was in my 20s, I loved, loved, loved this book. There are a couple of other Laurie Colwin books that I also loved. I wonder how it will read today.

Review | To Sir Phillip, With Love by Julia Quinn

The first book to make it onto my best books I've read so far this year list was actually a surprise. Thanks to Bridgerton's massive success, Julia Quinn's name is everywhere these days. And I'm chuffed about the whole thing. That said, my Quinn reading up to this point has been sporadic at best. And I'd only read two novels in the actual Bridgerton series. So I decided to rectify that at the beginning of the year by starting with Eloise's story (the fifth in the series) because she is my uncontested favorite of the siblings. I had no idea what her story held, but I knew she would be a compelling lead. I also love the title and the role that letters play in the story.   Eloise Bridgerton is tired of everything. She is tired of the endless inane whirl of life among the ton. She is tired of being paraded around and forced to dance and converse with all the wrong men. But most of all she is tired of being suddenly and unexpectedly alone after her best friend Penelo
