Big Kids Table: I MAY Be Late... But Book Bloggers Rock - […] but it just so happens I bought a copy of it on the bargain table at B&N. I adored Liza’s Nowhere But Home and I have two of Liza’s older books waiting for me at home. But I think this post reminds […]

Alexa Y. - Another ringing endorsement for Nowhere But Home! I’m thinking I really have to get on the boat and read this one too. I loved seeing what you both thought of this story, and it pleases me that you enjoyed it too! That’s FIVE ringing endorsements for me now — and all from people I most definitely trust.

Asheley Tart (@BookwormAsheley) - OH MY GOSH I LOVE THIS TO PIECES, 100000%.
Because I just loved the book so much. And I had hoped that Magan would love the book although I was a bit nervous because she’s so close to the area! YAY for reading it and loving it and this fun review style!!! I don’t think there’s anything I’d change either! I loved Cal and everything that is revealed about his character! Well, I just loved everything.

Melissa @ Writer Grrl Reads - I, too listened to Cassie and picked up a copy :). I love reading your bookish conversations, and this one is no exception! Super excited to read this one, especially after SO many of my trusted blogger buddies love it so much!

Lucy - Such a fun book report! I’ve been meaning to read this book for so long. I can tell I’m going to love it. Yay for book pushers 🙂

Meg - What a fun way to review — I love it! And I really enjoyed this one, too. It was a big, unexpected surprise for me from beginning to end, and it was hard not to like and feel for Queenie. I also found the romance with Everett very believable, and I was sorry to see it end! Even months later, I can vividly remember scenes and passages… the mark of a great story. 🙂

Cassie - LADIES, LADIES! I am so so so over the moon happy that you both loved this one!!

Everything, like E mentioned was so perfect, and well researched, and it really brought the book to life for me. From the characters to the setting to the trials each person had to face, to finding a jackass [I’m looking at you, Hudson!] It was just so perfect.

THANK YOU for listening to me <3

Estelle - You can definitely read these out of order. Some of the previous characters pop up but there are so many of them, it doesn’t really make a difference. I think this one might be great to start out with & I love the pocket size of the hardcover!!! SO CUTE.

Tara - I am all about Christmas books, especially in October 🙂 Is this a series you can read out of order or should I start with #1?

Ginger @ GReads! - This series sounds very much like the Lucky Harbor series. I think I may need to give this one a try. Would I be lost if I started with this one? Something about the Christmas aspect really appeals to me right now.
