Something Wicked This Way Comes is among my most favorite Bradbury books.

I had a fantastic week of reading so it's really difficult to pick a favorite book. I'm going to have go with a fan girl response and say the best (out of an extremely good set of books) was The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led the Revels There by Catherynne M. Valente. Please come and see what else I'm reading.

You have some great books on your plate right now! I really enjoyed Snow Flower and the Secret Fan. The Cider House Rules is one of my all time favorites :) I do hope you'll be able to get Wolf Hall from your library one of these days, it's a great read.

I always love to see what you are reading :) Have a great week!

I hope to read at least one Ray Bradbury book before the year ends and "Something Wicked this Way Comes" I think is a definite must-read. Do let me know how you find it once you're done with the book. :)

I had to laugh - "Why my third husband will be a dog" sounds EXACTLY like my kind of a read :)
