Big Kids’ Table: 2014 Reflections

Another year almost done. Are they all going to go as fast as this one? I sure hope not because I think part of my brain is still hanging out in the spring. Ha! It’s been another interesting year of Big Kids’ Table feature. Unlike many other blog features I see, I still haven’t been […]

Cee - I have the Rosie Project and Me Before You on my TBR list since like forever. I have Me Before You on my shelf rn, and I feel sooo guilty that I haven’t read it yet. I really need the desire to read them to hit me ASAP. I just want it—humor and emotions. Give it to me!

Stephanie at The Insouciant Sophisticate - What did take you so long with The Rosie Project and Me Before You? Haha. Such great reads and two of my personal recent faves.

December 16, 2014 - 12:36 pm

Asheley (@BookwormAsheley) - I think my favorite thing about Big Kids’ Table is that no two posts are ever the same! I’ve loved it hard every time I’ve seen it and I’m sure I’ll love it so much every time I see it in the future. I added a couple to my to-read on Goodreads and a few on my library list as well. Once again, thank you for bringing a few titles to my attention that I had never seen before (: Burial Rites was one of my two favorites this year, so glad you enjoyed it.

Daphne - I can’t wait to get to goodreads & do some adding to the TBR.

December 15, 2014 - 2:06 pm

Quinn @ Quinn's Book Nook - I’ve never read A Little Princess, but it’s been on my TBR for ages! And The Rosie Project was just so good right. I should read Her Holiday Man!

December 15, 2014 - 10:20 am

Brianna - A bunch of these are on my to read list. It took me a while to get into After I Do, but I ended up loving it.

December 15, 2014 - 9:39 am

Leah - I STILL haven’t read The Rosie Project! A sin of the worst kind, I know – especially since I have it on my shelf! It’s also killing me since I’ve heard nothing but fantastic things about it (and even BILL GATES recently mentioned how much he loves the sequel). No excuses.
I fell HARD for Jojo in 2013 and this year was all about going through her backlist. So far I’ve read four (and own three others) and have absolutely loved every single one.
I SPY A HOLIDAY NOVEL. Someday I’ll give it and finally take the plunge. Your mini-reviews had me ready to dive in!
A coworker loved – LOVED! – The Good Girl and I’m super eager to get my hands on some Taylor Jenkins Reid!
Still delighted you loved STN so much (and thinking of the next book to push on you ♥!). Burial Rites is another book I bought because so many bloggers loved it…and never made time for it. It feels like the perfect novel for cold winter nights though.

Big Kids' Table | The Best and Most Surprising of 2014 - […] VERY different titles that were almost a shock to my own reading system. The Good Girl by Mary Kubica, a fantastic debut, about a woman who is kidnapped.  The story is told from […]

Alexa S. - Your review + the interview kind of makes me want to give The Good Girl another try! I didn’t quite gel with it the first time I attempted to read it, but your assessment has me quite intrigued. Perhaps I shall give it a second chance 🙂

Brittany @ The Book Addict's Guide - Oh awesome! So happy to see a review for this one. I just saw all the hype but not one person who had read it yet. It sounds interesting! Glad it know it’s a bit more… emotional than scary thriller. I think I’ll add it to my list! 🙂

Leah - AAAAHHHHH ESTELLE!! I’ve been waiting and waiting for this one and I’m THRILLED to hear it’s a good one!
Also, Victor Garber and Helen Mirren? I’d be all about that movie!

August 18, 2014 - 9:20 pm

Molly | wrapped up in books - I almost bought this in the book store recently!

August 18, 2014 - 6:04 pm

Brianna - I’ve been stuck on thrillers lately and this looks like a winner.

August 18, 2014 - 4:34 pm

Courtney @ Courtney Reads A Lot - This one sounds so intense and also amazing! You’ve definitely caught my interest! I’m adding it to my TBR pile. Lovely post!

August 18, 2014 - 10:33 am

Cassie (Happy Book Lovers) - This looks creepy and daring and like everything I love in a book! The cover is especially terrifying but equally hypnotizing.

Thanks for the giveaway! 🙂

Big Kids Table: More than Just Romance

Welcome! How is it the last day of April already? Didn’t I just take my Christmas decorations down? I’m flabbergasted by how fast this year is flying so far. But the end of the month does mean BIG KIDS’ TABLE and I do love working on this feature. Big thanks to those of you who […]

Alexa S. - I always enjoy these posts because I get stellar recommendations from you! I actually have Empire Girls for review, and I’m pretty psyched because (1) sisters, (2) New York and (3) 1920s! I shall report back 😉

May 1, 2014 - 3:59 pm

Lucy @ The Reading Date - Harlequin does have a good mix of non-romance titles and I’m happy to see them featured here! And ohhh Earth Meets Water definitely caught my eye.

May 1, 2014 - 2:08 pm

Jamie - OH, E! You kill me. And by kill me I mean, now I’m off to Goodreads!

Asheley Tart (@BookwormAsheley) - Jason Mott = NC author. LOVE his imagination and the covers of his books. LOVE.

Ginger @ GReads! - Empire Girls sounds really good. Recently in my social studies class we’ve been discussing NYC (and other areas of the US) during the 1920s. That time really fascinates me. I bet this book would be good as a movie, or maybe even a TV mini series.
