  4. Nice. Anytime Oprah recommends a book I run in the other direction. I read what I want to read. That's why I don't do book clubs. Nice.

  10. I love that you said if Oprah liked it, you usually don't. That's hilarious, I feel the same way. I thought I was the only person out there who didn't live by the Oprah book club lol. I'm totally jealous of the other two books. The one looks like it takes place in Russia, my husband used to livethere so we love all things Russia. The Downton Abbey looks good too, I love that show so I'd probably love the book too :)

  11. Shadow and Bone sounds AWESOME, I'm slightly jealous! I can't wait to pick it up once my book ban is over. I don't think I've ever read anything that Oprah's specifically recommended, but maybe that's a good thing!

  20. Shadow and Bone is something I've been wanting to read for a while. I've heard lots about it.

    Hope you enjoy your haul!

  21. I tend to agree with you about Oprah books. If she likes it, I plan to avoid it. I did like Shadow and Bone which isn't anywhere close to an Oprah book. My new book posts are at Inside of a Dog and Ms. Martin Teaches Media. Happy reading!

  22. Yah, I'm not a big fan of Oprah's books that she picks. I've read two and I don't even remember what their about anymore. My eyes were moving...but I don't think my brain was processing the info... Shadow and Bone was so good! I hope you enjoy all the books you got this week! Happy reading :)
