Hi There - thanks for stopping by my blog. Unfortunately I have my own book club and lots of books to review so don't have time for another one. Thanks you for the invite though :) Good luck with your blog!

Mishel said...

I've read April & Oliver so I'd love to discuss it.

I have Testimony and Royal Blood so those are my number 1 and 2 votes respectfully. =)

(I'd love to do Julie and Julia but I don't have a copy and I don't know if I'd be able to buy a copy at the moment, I know I could go to the Library but it's tough for me)

I've read Testimony recently so that would be my first choice. I'm a bit behind with reading. Otherwise, I'd like to read April & Oliver. Sorry I missed last month. I still wasn't able to get the book at my local book stores.

Cindy said...

I am voting for either April & Oliver, Julie & Julia or Royal Blood as I already have both those books on my TBR pile.

Sorry I missed out on the last one but I did get the book so its on my TBR pile. July was a bad month book reading wise.
