Welcome April,

your list looks great. There's definitely overlap with my own but there are plenty of books I haven't seen before, so I'm looking forward to your posts :)

Goedi said...

I request that you recommend a wine pairing with every book you read.

Briony said...

I second everyone else (especially Goedi!). Welcome!

April (BooksandWine) said...

Thanks for your kind welcome, everyone!

I actually used to pair wine with the books I read when I first started, but since I read a lot of YA I got nervous about endorsing underage drinking, so dropped it.

Yes welcome April... you could change the pairing to books and soda or juice? ;)

Looking forward to your reviews.
