I'd love to read A Bold and Dangerous Family! Italian history, especially during WWII interests me. Enjoy your new books.

It will be a nice pre-Christmas read!

Interesting assortment of books. All are new to me. My high school French and Spanish wouldn't let me read much more than a menu. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

Seven Days of Us looks really good to me.

These all look good to me. I've had my eye on Seven Days of Us...and because I've enjoyed Armistead Maupin, Logical Family looks tempting, too.

Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.

I am struggling because of my high school Spanish, but I had quite a few French classes in college, so that's a bit easier!

Harvee Lau said...

Being stuck with relatives indoors for a week could be fun, or not...

Harvee Lau said...

Maupin's book is the first I'm reading of his works. I might try his Tales of the City later on.

A BOLD AND DANGEROUS FAMILY looks good.

Ooooo...GLASS HOUSES was very good. Love the Inspector and Three Pines. :)

I am so looking forward to reading SEVEN DAYS OF US.

Have a great week, Harvee Lau.

Seven Days of Us sounds like it could be a fun read. My French is really rusty, but I thought about trying to read a book in French that I've already read in English.
