Morning Meanderings…. Goodreads Book Awards Announced!


Good morning.  😀

The weekend was so busy and Monday I had work and meetings and Tuesday I had work and dinner with friends.  Really, I feel wiped out this morning and today is another big day. 


Anyway… in bookish news, the Goodreads awards have been posted and I was so excited to see that!  This is a great selection of books… and totally gift worthy!

How about you, have you read any of these?  Are there any you want to?

  1. If you like Hunger Games, you’ll like Divergent. Great plot. I loved Little Princes.

    I think I may try Stephen King, even though I gave him up in high school after being scared out of my britches. This book of his sounds different.

  2. I’ve read and loved The Paris Wife, and have the Stephen King book on my stacks. I’ve read several of the Stephanie Plum series, but not that one…yet.

    I wouldn’t mind checking a few of these out, but many of them do not interest me.

    Thanks for sharing.

  3. I’ve read Divergent, Smokin’ Seventeen, ShadowFever (audio is fantastic), and Where She Went, I followed Matt Logein’s story on his blog, want to read the book. There are a few I want to read.

  4. It’s an ok list. It began to confuse me, but then I realized that it is very much a popularity contest, or bestsellers list, which doesn’t necessarily show the best of. I love Janet Evanovich and Gweneth Paltrow, don’t get me wrong, but I certainly don’t think they were the BEST in their categories.

    All that said, this is why I love all the lists bloggers come up with – proof that no two are the same. Everyone has different tastes and opinions.

Hmmmm... what do you think?
