  3. I want to read the Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. I will get around to it someday I hope. I have read Madame Tussaud and while I prefer Cleopatra's Daughter, I did think this was an interesting story and I hope you like it too.

    In Zanesville looks good. I may have to check it out for my book discussion groups.

  41. Henrietta Lacks is a book that I've heard the title of a million times, but have no idea what it's about. I'll wait for your review to educate me :-)

    ReplyDelete
  42. In Zanesville is a book that I've wanted to read for a while, but with so many other books on my shelves waiting to be read, I never to get it. - That's probably a good thing. You mentioned that it is for your book club, do you think that it would be something you would have read otherwise?

    ReplyDelete
  43. Inzanesville looks really interesting! I haven't heard of that one before. The Immortal Life looks really good, I have seen it around but I haven't ever checked to see what it's about.. I really should LOL I hope you enjoy all of your books and have a fantastic week! :D

    As for the Hanklerfish, Hank Green (John's brother) signed only 5% of the books with an anglerfish doodle, so a lot of the people who follow their vlogs really wanted to get one. I was really excited! haha Did you read TFIOS?
