My Bookmark Picks Jan/Feb Edition

I just got my latest Bookmarks Magazine - I always get so excited! Here are the reads that are jumping out at me that I am going to put in my queue: Let me know what books you have in your queue (whether from Bookmarks or some other source) (all book covers are clickable and take you to Amazon....but I found all the books at my online library)



I haven't had good luck with David Mitchell novels in the past so am cautiously adding this one to my queue:

These are the reads that jump out at me at first glance. I will be taking it with us this weekend on the plane and browsing further. Let me know your picks or any good books that you are reading.


  1. oh so excited, my Bookmarks should be here soon. I see your Best of 2015 books listed here but I would love to have a year end video or blog post with the list, a brief synopsis and comment on why you loved them. Thanks Elle, love your blog and YT channel. Love the makeup updates and I get so many great book ideas. Happy Holidays! Jeana

    1. I am definitely going to do a "Best of 2015 Books video" Jeane - thanks :-) I will be curious how well it is received (not sure how many readers follow me)

  2. I had a great reading year (so far) my favorite reads this year:
    The Sense of an Ending
    To Kill a Mockingbird (re-read)
    One and Only Ivan
    All the Light We Can Not See
    Dark Places
    The Kind Worth Killing
    Circling the Sun
    Our Souls at Night
    An UNtamed State
    A Spool of Blue Thread
    Never Fall Down (re-read)

    1. Oh, this is GREAT! Thank you so much for sharing. We definitely have similar taste in books as I have read and loved a lot of these but there are a few I haven't read so I am adding them to my queue now. Thanks again :-)

    2. I cant believe I left The Nightengale off this list by accident but I know you read already. Looking forward to your wrap up video

  3. Received my Bookmarks magazine. The books I added to my TBR from this issue: My Brother Michael, The Rocks, H is for Hawk (this doesn't sound like my typical but I have heard so many good things, I may try), The Mare, Girl Waits with Gun and The Boys who Challenged Hitler. I read Gold Fame Citrus already.
