  3. Oh my goodness, that's quite a haul! (and two of my favorite books, to boot!)

    I keep waffling about what my summer reads will be (can't pick just ONE, you know), but I think I am going to tackle the Cassandra Clare books, and Barbara Kingsolver books that I haven't read yet.

  40. Thanks for the giveaway!
    The one book that I was literally dying to read was Something Like Normal by Trish Doller, and guess what? I actually read it and it was amazing! Besides, right now, I do have a couple of books on my Summer TBR pile.
    I would love to read To Kill A Mockingbird. I've been waiting to read that one since a long time now. :)

  41. I read all the time, but I have just obtained a copy of: Désirée: The Bestselling Story of Napoleon's First Love. It was first published in 1951 and I remember seeing the film which was made in 1954. (Please understand I did not see the film in 1954, but caught in to television many years ago). Jean Simmons and Marlon Brando (who else?) starred in the movie.

    To Kill a Mockingbird is probably my all time favorite! I would love to be entered in your giveaway!
