VeganYANerds - I love all the library books you’re getting, I haven’t been to my library in so long, I really need to go for a visit but I will come back with way too many books!

Also, regarding My Most Excellent Year – you had me at Mary Poppins, sounds like a fun read!

Jasmine Rose - I really enjoyed Small Town Sinners. I’ve heard people say it’s really preachy, but I didn’t feel that at all. It really just felt like a story about a girl questioning the things she’s also known to be fact.

I’ve been sort of terrified of reading The Secret Year because I KNOW it will make me FEEL EMOTIONS! lol

Estelle - Hey Eva! Thanks for the comment! After I read My Most Excellent Year, you are welcome to borrow it. I have never heard of Kluger so I’m glad to hear that you have and you liked his other book. I’ll have to look into it. Hope you have a great week!

Eva @ The Book Stoner - AH! You have My Most Excellent Year! I’ve been meaning to read that book but local bookstores don’t have it. I also recently read Kluger’s other book, Almost Like Being In Love, and loved it. Kluger is a good writer. Can’t wait to read your review of My Most Excellent Year. πŸ™‚
