Its that time of the month again when I get to meet up with She Reads and Reads (Avis), Books Bound (Donna), Better with Books (Linda) and Bookshipper (Tina). They are all local book bloggers here in Montreal. We met at our regular little teashop in Verdun.
We all got some really good hot drinks and some food. This time I still stuck with my Hot Spicy Apple drink (2x), hot chocolate and since I didn't get to eat much lunch I got a selection of 3 Quebec cheeses that were surrounded in mixed nuts (walnuts, almonds etc) and it came with a salad (carrot) and a basket of crusty bread.
We had talked about going to BEA (trying to figure out if we will do one day or two days) and NYC (Ellis Island, museums, The Strand etc) and how we were going to try and fit in sight seeing with all that each of us wanted to do (I made a promise to my brother in laws that I would get to the Museum of Natural History because their name is on a plaque there. They worked on making a dinosaur for the exhibit and Michael wants me to go to Central Park Zoo)
We exchanged books with each other and here is what I managed to come home with:
From Tina I picked up:
-The Curable Romantic by Katherine Miller
-How To Make a Bird by Martine Murray (look for my review in June)
-A Match Made in High School by Kristin Walker
-Cinderella Cleaners: Change of a dress Book 1 by Maya Gold (look for my review in April)
-Cinderella Cleaners: Prep Cool Book 2 by Maya Gold (look for my review in April)
-Finally by Wendy Mass (look for my review in March)
From Donna I got The Girls by Lori Lansens. From Avis I got Boys, Girls and other Hazardous Materials.
Michael was even lucky at this meet up he got these two books from Tina and they are Tim Horton from Stanley Cup to Coffee Cups by Don Quinlan and Hockey Talk by John Goldner and illustrated by Ted Heeley. He loved both books and has already started to read Hockey Talk. (Mind you we have to read it too him.)
I love our monthly meet ups because we talk about everything and anything and it can sometimes get into a heated debate. Right Tina? But that is okay because in the end we are still friends.
See you guys again in March.
