  1. I giggled at your perfect idea of snow. We have had flurries here today, snow earlier in the week that finally melted off today, but supposed to get a little more over the next few days. Happy New Year!

  2. It sounds like you got the kind of snow that we have (oh-so-rarely) experienced—great beauty that quickly dissipates.

    I look forward to seeing your review of The Violin Conspiracy. I hope that you like Lessons in Chemistry.

    Good luck in your work with the school board!

  3. THE VIOLIN CONSPIRACY looks like an interesting book. My book club’s voting on our new books soon. I think I’ll suggest reading that one.

    I’ve heard mixed reviews about LESSONS IN CHEMISTRY. It seems to be very polarizing. Either you love it or hate it. I’m on hold for it at my library but I still have 22 weeks before it’s my turn. Oy!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  4. That is my perfect idea of snow too! I live in the hot, dry deserts of Arizona. My husband and I visited my parents in the rainy Pacific Northwest in early December and we were treated to just such a perfect snow – it was lovely and festive to sit inside and watch it fall, but by the time we actually had to drive in it, it had all melted. Perfect!

    I’ve wondered about LESSONS IN CHEMISTRY. I’ll be interested to see whether you continue with it or not.


  5. I am glad to hear your year has gotten off to a good start with The Violin Conspiracy. I hope Lessons in Chemistry gets better for you. I haven’t read it myself. I hope you have a wonderful 2024, Joy. Have a great week and take care.

  6. I wasn’t crazy about the Lessons in Chemistry until around page 100 then everything changed for me. Loved it! I also really enjoyed the Violin Conspiracy. I haven’t read the author’s next book but it is on my TBR.

    Happy New Year.

  7. Violin Conspiracy was a good one! And I hope you’ll warm to Lessons in Chemistry — it has some charm to it and humor and drama as well. I liked it but it does have a different style a bit. Have a great week.

  8. I look forward to your Violin review as that book is on my shelf right here in my livingroom.

    I could NOT get into Lessons in Chemistry. I wanted to, but you can’t force a book. Sigh.
