I did not finish a book over the weekend, that is partly because I have spent way to much time exploring the shelves at used bookstores – my favorite kind. This book haul is from Recycled Books in Denton, Texas. A wonderful store that you should get lost in the first chance you get. Earlier
Title: The Dresden Files: Brief Cases Author: Jim Butcher Publication Date: 2018 Publishing House: ACE One of my favorite authors is Jim Butcher.

Title: Circe Author: Madeline Miller Publication Date: 2018 Publishing House: Bloomsbury Publishing Last week I finished both Circe and The Woman in the Window. I enjoyed them both in their own ways but of the two Circe was my favorite. Of course they are in two separate genres and I can’t really compare the two.
Title: Moonglow Author: Michael Chabon Publication Date: 2016 Publishing House: HarperCollins Publisher I did it! I finally finished Moonglow. Saying that I loved this book sounds odd considering the fact that it took me way longer to finish it than it should have. But life gets crazy and I finished it when I could. Now
So as I have said in previous posts recently I moved and I spent a large amount of time on Sunday unpacking my books. I had at least eight large boxes full of them. And was out of bookshelf space rather quickly. As I was working on the chaos my boyfriend suggested getting rid of
