Prime First Reads

Gift to Eleanor & Me From Eleanor & Me <3

We love Schitt's Creek a whole lot and would have dressed as David (me) and Alexis (Eleanor) for Halloween if she didn't have to be at her father's this year. But you can bet it is game-on next year!

Happy Reading!

    1. UGH! Whenever you start a comment on one of these posts with, "So funny story..." I KNOW I am in trouble!

      I had Empress of the East on my TBR at one time but now it is not there and I am not sure how that happened. All the others, with the exception of the one on Cuba, are going to be added to my pre-TBR list just to keep you from wreaking my Tackling the TBR post on Sunday, lol.

    2. Luckily I'm winding down now as Christmas approaches.... So just a few per week for the next few and then probably nothing till the New Year.

    3. Yeah, and we all know your New Year hauls are going to be massive! It's a good thing I am making progress culling my TBR now that I have some actual time to do it, lol. I might just keep breaking even that way ;)

  2. I've never seen schitt's Creek but I understand Jennifer Hampshire is in it and she rocked in 12 Monkeys (the show, not the movie) so I should watch it.

    1. Oh for sure. She is hilarious and a perfect BFF for David. We love the show SO much.

  3. Schitt's Creek is a great show. We enjoyed it also.

  4. I still need to watch Schitt's Creek! Everyone seems to love it!

    1. It really is just a wonderful show and I am so glad it got all the accolades it so richly deserves.

  5. Ooh, it looks like you got some spooky ones. I hope you love them!

    1. Come Closer and The Chain were great and I liked them a lot. The other two, nope nope nope!


Thanks for visiting my little book nook. I love talking books so leave a comment and let's chat!
