  1. I stumbled across your blog via another blog, Susan Flynn’s You Can Never Have Too Many Books. I’ve been lurking and reading your blog for a while… I don’t know why a giveaway is what it takes to leave a comment!

  2. I’m currently reading The Solitary House by Lynn Sheperd which takes place in 1850 London. The writing is rather Dickensian. So far I’m enjoying it very much.

    Congratulation on your 800th post!

  3. Hello 🙂
    I was also going to suggest Night Film if you are up for some creepy fall reading. There are also a bunch of new books out about Sylvia Plath.
    I already follow you onTwitter and Instagram.
    Ccongrats on keeping up with the blog and the baby! 😉

  4. Congratulations for getting 800 posts!
    I recently finished the Salinger biography and loved it. I don’t know how you feel about him, but I highly recommend it. I’m diving into Sherlock Holmes soon, so I’ll also recommend any of those stories simply because I know I’ll enjoy them, and who doesn’t love a good mystery?
    I’m following you on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and WordPress (all connected with either Jenna or lostgenreader for names).
