  4. This is the second mention of Little Bee. Must be something I should add to my tbr. I just joined this meme. I can tell I'm going to find more reads even though I don't have enough time for the books I have. :-)

  9. Seems like everyone is raving about Little Bee. I didn't request it because I wasn't sure it would be my cup of tea and now I'm kicking myself, given all the great buzz (sorry, couldn't help myself with the dreadful pun).

  12. I'm going to have to check out Little Bee. The cover keeps catching my eye, but I did't realize it was set in Nigeria. I love books set in places I will never get to visit.
