  1. I love your blog title! I see you liked Chicken Soup with Rice, did you ever hear the musical version of that book? The song is now stuck in my head. :)

    1. Thank you so much! I have not, but I need to find it!!

  2. Your blog title cracks me up! I hope no one ever makes me choose, lol. I really enjoy pasta, and I'm about to go make me a nice cup of hot cocoa as soon as I finish this comment. I'm sort of a backlist reader, i'm rarely aware of the newest, hottest books, I just read what I like, and sometimes I'll pick up a book after a good review or a recommendation. Great post and happy reading!!

    1. Thank you! :) That sounds so nice! I hope that you get some good reading time in! Happy Reading :)

  3. I loved this! It is wonderful to know more about you. I used to live in the DC area. I miss it.

    1. I didn't know that! :) So much fun! I wish you were still here!

  4. It was great getting to meet you, Valerie. I used to watch Gilmore Girls every week with my mom when it was out. It's a great show and when she comes out to visit we usually binge watch all the old episodes.

    1. Thanks! good to meet you too! :) So much fun! I am glad that you enjoy Gilmore Girls too.
