  1. Wow, great list, as always, Tanya! So many interesting links to follow – wish I had more time!

    I heard a podcast about The Five Love Languages & it sounded like that might be an interesting self-help book (explained a few things about my husband to me! lol)

    Can’t believe I missed Bel Canto on the list of movie-book adaptation releases for fall – I just wrote an article listing a bunch of them for Shelf Awareness! Thanks for the heads up – I loved the novel. Also can’t wait to see Bernadette in the spring – that one was supposed to b out this fall and was delayed.

      I just got a recommendation for the Love Languages book – from a guy no less – so I’m going to take a crack at reading it although I’m not usually into self help books,

      • I honestly loved 5 Love Languages. Read it to my husband on a road trip years ago.

    • Love Languages is a really insightful book! I loved it.

  2. Thank you so much for including my book list! Y’all always have such good finds in here…loved the advice from a blogging coach this week!
