I could tell you a whole bunch of facts about myself--born here, went to school there, blah blah--but that doesn't seem like much fun. So I've decided to make you guys do some work. If you can figure out these puzzles, you'll know all sorts of interesting things about me. And many of them are true, too.1. I was born in a year with a 2 in it. Also a 6.2. I was born in a city in California that begins with an S and has eight letters total.3. The first time I moved, I couldn't move.4. My best friend lived next door, had four older brothers and sisters, and a name that rhymes with Gabe. She had thirty-seven plastic horses and one real horse.5. My first job was in a place with lots of books. My second job was in a place with lots of sugar. My third job was in a different place with lots of books.6. I went to college in a town with a K in it and I studied a subject that ends in Y. 7. After I was done with college, I got a job. And then another one. And then there was one after that. Don't worry about it.8. One of the following things is not true: I have been up in a hot air balloon. I have six toes on one of my feet. I can read palms. 9. I have written fifteen books under three different names. See if you can figure out what they are.10. I have two pets. They are bigger than a bar of soap and smaller than a shoe, and they really like parsley.Have fun!Annie Barrows

[I received a copy of this book through Edelweiss.]Well, this book captures ‘nothing’, which is both good (the character Charlotte intends to show nothing exciting happens in her life, and she does that well), and not so good, because in the end, it made for a fairly plotless novel that read like a ...

I don't really remember liking this book when I first read it (I didn't dislike it either though). I do remember distinctly thinking Dawsey was a 70-year-old man. Spoilers (but not really), he's not and this time around I caught all the references to how he's not 70 years old. But his character real...

About forty-five minutes in to this eight hour novel, I was on the verge of giving up. I liked the writing and the pace but I couldn't engage with the apparently privileged middle-class characters sharing light-weight banter about publishing and book tours, immediately after the end of World War Two...

I chose this book from NetGalley because I am a fan of Annie Barrows. I appreciated the lovely job she did finishing the manuscript for her aunt on The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, but before this, my daughters and I had read many of the Ivy and Bean books, and also particularly lo...

This novel created incredibly mixed feelings in me, beginning with the ridiculous, lengthy title that gives no hint as to what the book is actually about. I mean, it makes perfect sense once you've read it, but when this was brought up in book club, I thought, what the hell is that?! This book and...
