  1. I like that you've given yourself some wiggle room (choices) thru the seasons. I'll look forward to seeing which books you settle on.

  2. I wanted to answer your question about "The Gargoyle" - if you'd like to read it for the art history challenge, then go ahead! I've read it, and it seems like her work as a sculptor is a big part of the novel. Enjoy!

  4. Welcome to the challenge! Four books is fine, it looks like you're a heavier reader than I am. One of my series for the challenge is YA.

    I have Silent Spring on my shelf too but forgot about it, thanks for the reminder.

    Looking forward to your reviews....
