melinda hough I love your book review, Jasmine. Keep 'em coming. =) 03.29.11 - 2:36pm
Thanks for the book recommendation! I've been looking for something fun to read. 03.28.11 - 10:17pm
I read this entry with the biggest grin on my face 'cause I would be that fan girl who'd grab your arm and make YOU buy the soy latte and then I'D be the one to flip the coin and, hand shaking, get to give it to Reif and be "Ohmygodyourbookissoamazing."
I'm already looking forward to his next title :) 03.28.11 - 8:28pm
Ashley Jasmine- I strongly suggest you read anything by Paulo Coehlo, I think you'd really like/enjoy his writing. 03.28.11 - 8:50am
i bought and read this book on gail's recommendation (did she tell you to read it, too?) and i feel strangely about it...
it is clearly genius...it is unique and different and there is a story there that is engaging...so i liked it, but it also felt just slightly inaccessible...or like it tried a teensy bit too hard? or in being so different it lost some of its readability? i dunno...all the illustrations, which i didn't want to skip or let slip through my fingers...but they did seem to distract me or lose the momentum of the story. there's probably a lot more i could take from evaluating this if i thought some more...but i didn't think that deeply about it until just now, i think. :-D 03.26.11 - 9:03pm
Victoria O'Connor Hey Jasmine, keep those book reviews coming - I love them! It's so good to have a recommendation from someone whose taste you trust, and let's face it, life is too short to read less than amazing books! A book that I adored is "Astrid & Veronika" by Linda Olsson - both heartbreaking and beautiful ... 03.26.11 - 6:39pm

Will check it out. At first when you mentioned soy latte I was like who drinks those... Then later on you clarified that you didn't. Now I feel better lol 03.26.11 - 6:09pm
Saw the book in the bookstore today, thought of your post and bought it without a doubt. Hope I like it... ;-) 03.26.11 - 5:21pm
Katrina Hi Jasmine - I met you when you came to Connecticut (I still have to post that picture..) anyway, I wanted to recommend an amazing book to you !

My favorite part of this pic is the empty wall. You and JD are amazing photogs, but you keep your bedroom wall blank... quite beautiful if you ask me :) simple. 03.25.11 - 7:26pm

Don't you just love it when that happens with a book?!
You both have a great weekend, too! 03.25.11 - 5:09pm
I'm currently in the midst of reading "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn" (which is AMAZING, btw) but I'm adding this to my ever growing book list! Thanks for the recommendation :) 03.25.11 - 3:59pm
I drink soy lattes...must mean I'm a genius! THANKS! 03.25.11 - 3:52pm
thanks for the suggestion! you've made me excited to read this book 03.25.11 - 3:36pm
Every book I've read that was recommended by you is awesome. You have a talent here. ;) Can't wait to check out this one. 03.25.11 - 3:35pm
a LOVED this book, read it over a year ago and still think about all the great illustrations (which are a must - don't read this on an e-reader). 03.25.11 - 3:30pm
Both you and Bianca posting about reading today makes me want to snuggle under the covers with my newest library book! That and the fact that all the snow outside and the cozy fire inside equals the perfect cup of coffee and book day! 03.25.11 - 3:22pm
Jasmine* @Petra: I actually read that book and, yes, I LOVED it too! :) 03.25.11 - 3:19pm
I felt this way about "Curious Incident of the dog in the night time". I can't put it in words how awesome that book is, but I'm sure it would deserve it's own blog post. I'll check out your book... 03.25.11 - 3:17pm
You totally DIDN'T make the book sound lame... you made me want to RUN to the nearest bookstore and buy one to read TONIGHT! Oh, and for the record, I drink soy lattes. Okay, soy chai tea lattes... same thing, right?!
