Teaser Tuesdays July 27: A Secret Kept by Tatiana de Rosnay

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

A Secret KeptI'm still reading A Secret Kept by Tatiana de Rosnay. I took a vacation -- from everything, including reading! So my Teaser Tuesday is again from A Secret Kept.

I'm almost finished so I will give the ARC to one lucky random TT fan! Winning the giveaway is a good way for you to review the book before picking it as your choice for your reading group. A Secret Kept is a great book club pick, full of discussion points -- family, secrets, romance, hope, loss.

"I want to call Melanie about all this, and nearly do, but it is getting on for one o'clock in the morning.

Teaser Tuesdays June 15: Great House by Nicole Krauss

I've been on vacation so my blog has been on vacation, too! Corolla, NC -- great weather and a good time.

Back to the book business. BEA(BookExpoAmerica) has afforded me some great galleys to look over. Amy from W. W. Norton gave me one that I'm excited to read -- Great House by Nicole Krauss. Krauss' previous novel, The History of Love, is one of my favorite books. Great story and lots of reading group topics to discuss.
