Beautiful, stylish, AND intellectual?? Yikes, woman, you put me to shame! (I'm not hitting on you, I swear.) I'm partial to Harry Potter and the Hunger Games. Anything by Richard Paul Evans. Stephen King sticks with you in the best, creepiest way possible. Anne of Green Gables. Little Women. Sense and Sensibility. Classics! Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. The Mummy by Anne Rice. OK, I should stop now. Great topic!

I NEVER go in TJ Maxx - always seems WAY too much effort - you've given me the impetus to get in there now! That jacket rocks!

I always recommend "Geek Love" as one of my top 5 of all time. Kitty photo bomb (second photo down) - love it!

Karrin - STOP - you're making me blush. You listed some good ones too. I almost had an Anne Rice on my list. I used to CONSUME her books.

Poppy - glad you stopped by, now GET THEE HENCE to TJ Maxx!! For reals. I love that place.

Amy - I just started reading chapter books to the kids. We're reading Charlotte's Web now - not sure how they're going to like it, but they ask to read it every night before bed, so that's a good sign. Next up for us - Mrs. Piggle Wiggle!!

Jenny - Okay - I have to check out Geek Love. HA - I forgot to mention Pickles - he DID totally photo bomb, didn't he?
