Ill have to check out The Affairs of Others, never heard of that one. Reply Michelle on July 25, 2013 at 10:26 AM Thank you very much! The Returned was so surprising to me. It was nothing like I expected, but I enjoyed it. The Affairs of Others is another interesting one. I haven’t decided how I feel about that one yet. Have a great week! Reply Elizabeth on July 23, 2013 at 8:39 AM I loved The Secret Keeper. A Fatal Likeness looks really good. I have Returned on my TBR list. Will check out your review if you have one. ENJOY your week…it looks good. Elizabeth Silver’s Reviews My It’s Monday, What Are You Reading Reply Michelle on July 23, 2013 at 9:08 AM I thoroughly enjoyed A Fatal Likeness. All of the books I’m reading now won’t be reviewed until mid-August, closer to their release dates, so stay tuned! Have a good one! Reply Mystica on July 23, 2013 at 6:36 AM Great mailbox. Looking forward to your reviews. Reply Michelle on July 23, 2013 at 7:30 AM Thanks! Reply Juju at Tales of Whimsy... on July 22, 2013 at 8:20 PM Cool. I’ve wondered about SK. I’ll keep my eyes peeled for that review. Reply Michelle on July 22, 2013 at 9:04 PM Definitely! Kate Morton is just awesome, and The Secret Keeper is not disappointing so far! Reply Shannon @ River City Reading on July 22, 2013 at 5:05 PM Looks like I’m a week behind you! I just picked up The Returned and have plans to read The Affairs of Others soon, though I’ve already read Tampa – wondering what you’ll think! Reply Michelle on July 22, 2013 at 9:06 PM I LOVED Tampa!! It was simply brilliant and one that I was to discuss with everyone! Reply Vasilly on July 22, 2013 at 3:27 PM I just heard about Tampa! OMG! I’m looking forward to reading your thoughts on it. Have a good week. Reply Michelle on July 22, 2013 at 9:06 PM I thoroughly enjoyed Tampa. Psychologically, it is absolutely fascinating. It isn’t for everyone though! Reply Shannon (Giraffe Days) on July 22, 2013 at 2:48 PM I have The Returned to read too, I’m looking forward to that one. I’m very curious about A Fatal Likeness – did you enjoy it? Ooh Tampa was a hard read! I don’t think of myself as a squeamish person but I was very uncomfortable and grossed out reading it. Took me a few days before I could calmly write a review. Looking forward to hearing what you think of that one. Reply Michelle on July 22, 2013 at 2:50 PM I did enjoy A Fatal Likeness, more than I expected I would. The Returned was a complete surprise as it was nothing like what I expected. I finished Tampa at lunch today. I loved it. I thought it was just brilliant. Reply Greg on July 22, 2013 at 2:23 PM The Secret Keeper looks good, I like that it’s set in the English countryside and there’s a mystery involved. I may have to check that one out. Thanks and have a great day! Reply Michelle on July 22, 2013 at 2:48 PM All of Kate Morton’s books involve mysteries set in England. If you like that sort of thing, I would check out her entire repertoire. Enjoy! Reply Andi @ Estella's Revenge on July 22, 2013 at 11:48 AM The Perfume Collector is high on my gonna read it soon list. Not an actual list. A mental list that gets reshuffled according to my whims. But right now, it’s very near the top. Reply Michelle on July 22, 2013 at 2:10 PM I know that list. I have that list myself. I’m always afraid to look at that mental list because it brings me nothing but shame because it is SO long! Reply Souper on July 22, 2013 at 11:35 AM Any Book by Elin Hildebrand. Stories take place in Nantucket. “Silver Girl” and “Beautiful” Excellent reads. Reply Pat @ Posting For Now on July 22, 2013 at 10:02 AM I’ve read Me Before You by Jo Jo Moyes and thought it was great. I hope you enjoy The Girl You Left Behind. I’ve also read The Secret Keeper and enjoyed that as well. All of your books look great. Enjoy! Reply Michelle on July 22, 2013 at 10:08 AM Having not read Me Before You, I will be curious to see how those who loved it feel about her latest book. I did enjoy it but felt there were some parts I could have done without. I do love Kate Morton and can’t believe I waited this long before I finally got to The Secret Keeper. Have a great week! Reply Souper on July 22, 2013 at 9:12 AM New Book: “The Irresistible Blueberry Bakeshop and Cafe.” By Mary Simses fiction, Maine, romance, art, family, recipes. Great summer read. Reply Michelle on July 22, 2013 at 9:40 AM I read that two months ago and enjoyed it. You are correct that it is a great summer read. Reply Betsy on July 22, 2013 at 8:59 AM So close to finishing The Amateur Marriage by Anne Tyler. Looking forward to finding out how it ends. Reply Michelle on July 22, 2013 at 9:41 AM Nice! Enjoy! Reply Kathy Martin on July 22, 2013 at 8:52 AM Nice assortment of books. I have seen a lot of them around the blogsphere but haven’t read any. It is amazing how many books are available to readers. Come see what I did last week here. Happy reading this week! Reply Michelle on July 22, 2013 at 9:42 AM I know. I always think I have my pulse on the latest reads but usually find myself shocked at just how many I missed. Ah well. Unless I win the lottery and can quit my job so that I can read all day, I am resigned that I am just not able to get to them all. Reply Deb Nance on July 22, 2013 at 8:34 AM Good information, Michelle. Thanks! Reply Deb Nance on July 22, 2013 at 8:28 AM I’ve got Me Before You here. Have you read that? Do you recommend it? Enjoy your reading! Here’s my It’s Monday! Reply Michelle on July 22, 2013 at 8:31 AM I did read it and enjoyed it. I haven’t read Ms. Moyes’ first novel, so I have no basis for comparison. However, I thought it interesting. The historical fiction sections were much stronger than the modern-day sections, but overall, I was impressed!
