Monday Memes


Hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading
This week's question:
In honor of the Canadian “Family Day” holiday, today, I’m curious… What was the last book (or, what was your favorite book) that dealt with family? What did you like / dislike about it?
My answer:
The first book that came to mind was Beachcombers by Nancy Thayer.  I read it this past year and it was the type of story where I got so involved with the characters, in this case 3 sisters, that I didn't want to see the story end.  The sisters who are all facing trouble in their own lives have come home to the small island of Nantucket to face their past and begin their future.
And to all my Canadian blogging friends...Happy Family Day!

February is being hosted by Laura from Library of Clean Reads
Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia of The Printed Page and is now on tour.
According to Marcia, “Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.”
This hasn't happened in a while, no books this week, but then maybe it's a good thing because I am so far behind.  But I will be visiting and seeing what everyone else received so that my tbr bucket list will grow.

No books? NO Books? Are you serious? Maybe the mailman got sick. I'm sure that's it. He just couldn't carry that load & decided to hold off a few days...

Thanks for the Beachcombers reminder. It's one I've been wanting to pick up.

I did not get anything in the mail this week. My last family book was Fall of Giants.

Thanks for recognizing Family Day! It's also known as our excuse to go sledding :D

I remember reading a review of Beachcombers, maybe yours, and thinking it sounded interesting...maybe because of the Nantucket setting.
