Alexa S. - Ooh, M, comparing it to Just One Day/Just One Year is a major draw for me because I loved that duo so very much. I haven’t heard all that much about Love, Lucy, but you can consider me intrigued after reading your review! I’m always partial to books that feature European countries, first of all, so that’s a big part of it. And then there’s the comp titles, which is another big draw. All in all, it sounds pretty cute. Might just have to check it out!

Emma @ Miss Print - I think I can help explain the Charlene part! This book is a riff on/retelling of A Room with a View which was set at a time when young unmarried women were expected to travel with chaperones (not friends) which I think in the original was an older aunt.

I love the idea of this one but I have to admit the more I see about it, the more I just want to re-read A Room With a View. If you haven’t read it yet I’d say you should definitely check it out!

Magan - Kim: Even if you didn’t enjoy JOD, I think you should give Love, Lucy a chance. It’s a different story with *similarities,* but I have to say the ending gave me a lot more peace than JOD did. They aren’t the same book, but I think readers could be fans of both books. 🙂

Magan - Meg: “armchair traveling” — that is the best phrase EVER. Committing that to memory. I definitely hope you enjoy it! The more I think about it, the more I like it! <3

Meg - Oh, this sounds like so much fun! And I’m all for armchair traveling, especially in the dead of winter. Will have to keep my eyes peeled for it!

Kim - But, but.. I hated Just One Day! :'(
But anyway, great review! I’m a little hesitant to pick this up, but it’s definitely one of the interesting ones. 🙂

Leah - YOU KNOW HOW I FEEL ABOUT JOJO! Last Letter is beautiful! Silver Bay wasn’t my favorite, but any Jojo is a great Jojo. I’m hoping to finish going through her backlist next year!

I received both St. Martins books too. Lately I’ve had a fantastic streak with their stuff, so I’m looking forward to reading these!

Rebecca @ Reading Wishes - I was mentioned in your vlog! So – that was a lovely surprise 🙂 And yes, it’s going to be a lot of fun! All the books you got from Alex all sound amazing and I can’t wait to read them. I’m looking forward to hearing you thoughts on them.

Brianna - So many good books. I’ve been spending too much time on NetGalley and not enough time reading. I always figure it’s a good thing I have no clue how Edelweiss works.
