Oh so colorful! (Architecture and design bookstore Van Alen in New York)
This week has been an interesting one for me. Either I, or another family member have been sick since Saturday. You’d think I’d have caught up on my reading in that time, but alas, that is not the case. I did manage to finish 1 of the three books that I’ve been reading for the past month, Becoming Americans in Paris. So there will be a review next week, huzzah! I’m also hosting a giveaway for Beth Hoffman’s newest title, Looking For Me. If you haven’t entered the giveaway yet, you have until next Friday to do so! Sign up HERE.
Now without further ado, the weekly round-up of interesting bookish blurbs floating around the Internet.
