  12. Dang! Good thing you’re a fast reader! πŸ˜€

    So many pretties. I want to pet them.

  13. Romancing Mr. Bridgerton is my favorite JQ book. Have you read any of the other Bridgerton books? If not, you’re so going to want to after you finish Colin & Penelope’s book.

    And enjoy the Amelia Peabody books! Emerson was my first book boyfriend (for some reason, I stole Crocodile… off my aunt’s shelf when I was in 8th grade and thought I was super cool) and I’ve never really gotten over him. πŸ™‚

  14. I loved Amy & Roger’s — I hope you do too. It’s such a fun road trip book. I also can’t wait to hear you thoughts on Name of the Star- I’ve been dying to read that one. Enjoy all your books!
