  1. I'm definitely doing this - maybe tomorrow, if I find time!

    And Michelle got me with The Martian, too - I ordered it a few days ago.

  2. I can't wait until I catch up with my GN series ... That new Fables (Camelot) looks good. I need to get a copy of the The Martian.

  3. I did this little meme, also stolen from Trish, and I too realize this hardly makes a dent, We better get reading. You have incredible list, none of which I have read. I saw a lady reading Call the Midwife on the train the other day, and weeping. Sometimes there are some very moving stories. Enjoy.

  4. I'd like to read The Martian too, so many bloggers have said its brilliant though usually I wouldn't have even considered it. Im looking forward to the new mercy book too

  5. I've only read one by Kelly Armstrong, but I really liked it. Need to go ahead and see if I can find the second in the Cainsville series. Several of the books you've mentioned look interesting!

  6. I'm looking forward to the next volume of Fables too. I need to do this meme.

  7. I just added The Martian to my TBR list as well :) I'm trying to read and catch up on The Mercy Thompson series this year...just so I can read the newest book. I'm on the 3rd now but I need to grab it from the library. So many books....

  8. Mary Poppins She Wrote, Empty Mansions and Paris 1919 are on my TBR list as well! All 3 look really good. I also really want to try Fables after all the good things I've been heard about them lately.

  9. Oooh! I recently saw a post about Find Momo by Andrew Knapp and have started following him on Instagram. Cute dog!! I'll bet the book is sweet, too.
