  4. @Danielle & @Blodeuedd: I'm really excited about it -- I'm doing a comparison review with DuMaurier's Rebecca since it's getting buzz about being v reminiscent of it. Here's hoping!

    @Elysium: I'm so excited as it's an era I'm curious about but haven't read a ton of -- love books like this.

  8. Most of these are new to me. I picked up A Moveable Feast several weeks ago after finishing The Paris Wife. I need to remember to read it :)

    A Moveable Feast is one of my favorite books and the only Hemingway I'm crazy about.

  24. I read the first in Lauren Willig's series but I wasn't a huge fan. I think I might need to revisit the series and try again.

    Nice haul, though; The Lantern is GORGEOUS. I'm off to goodreads to learn more actually
