  1. I aim to read more graphic novels this year. Did you see The Lost Daughter on Netflix? the ending is different in the book, I hear.

  2. Looks like good variety for you.
    I wonder why I am interested in books with "wolf" in the title?
    Have a good week and Happy Reading!

  3. I'm all into trying new recipes right now so I'll have to follow GimmeSomeOven.

  5. Some intriguing books here, enjoy!

  6. I'm curious about Cry Wolf and Tenements,Towers and Trash. The painting is neat art. I'll be curious to see what your Chronicles of Narnia stitch looks like.

    Have a good week!

  7. An interesting mix of genres, enjoy!

    Wishing you a great reading week

  8. Oooh love the Stitching Book Club, I'm going to have to send that to my friend who does cross-stitching! 'Mystic Package' is also an amazing painting, I've been staring at it for minutes now. 'When We Cease to Understand the World' looks really interesting, I'm going to add that to my TBR! Thanks for sharing and I hope you have a lovely week :)
