Long time, no see Sunday Saloners! I have been so out of the loop but not when it comes to books. Last week I received an e-mail from the publicist responsible for the sequel to The Nanny Diaries, Nanny Returns. It will be in book stores and available on-line December 15th and I jumped at the chance to read and review it. It arrived in the mail the other day and I have started reading it at night before I go to bed and so far it’s enjoyable and clever. We’ll see what happens to Nan and the Xes and I’ll let you know what I think in a couple of weeks. Also, authors Emma McLaughlin and/or Nicola Kraus will answer my questions for a special Q&A post here on Planet Books. If any of you have a question for them let me know and I’ll ask them on your behalf!
The last book I read was for book club and it was The Lovely Bones. I really loved it but was a bit disappointed with part of the end. I will review it here on Planet Books after our discussion/lunch next Saturday. It should prove for a very good afternoon with the ladies.
I’m going to try to get at least three more books read before years end, including Nanny Returns. I had discussed in the previous post on here that I had challenged myself to sing thirty-four books for my thirty-four years. Well, I won’t hit that number but that is okay. I will challenge myself to read thirty-five books in 2010 starting on my birthday, New Years Day. Will you hit your challenge goals you set for yourself this year? What has been your favorite book so far? Mine was Sarah’s Key by Tatiana de Rosnay. You can read my review HERE.
One thought on “The Sunday Salon ~ November 15th, 2009”
Sarah’s Key is on my list to get to this year. I’m not sure I will, but I sure hope so! There’s a number of books I would love to read this year that I know I won’t.
I look forward to reading your thoughts on The Lovely Bones after your book group. I read it years ago and really liked it. I’m really curious to see how the movie turns out.
I hope you have a great week!
