Whimsy Update and Yakety-yak: I'm baaaack

I'm back! And I'm totally and utterly pooped...While I adore traveling, there is nothing in the world like coming home. I can't wait to get in bed and finish Emma. The last scene I read was so good and so romantic it gave me the chills. *le sigh* What is the last book you read that gave you goosebumps?


  1. glad you're back! missed ya :D

  2. I'm glad you are enjoying Emma! The last book that gave me goosebumps would be either Deception by Lee Nichols or Spirit Bound by Richelle Mead.

    Sometimes I think that when I come back from vacation I need a vacation to recover. I will be going to Canada at the end of June for a few days and I am sure I will be exhausted when I get back!

  3. The last book that gave me goosebumps was A Long Fatal Love Chase by Louisa May Alcott. It's a very twisted love story that gave me chills.

  4. Business or pleasure? I know traveling can be very exhausting.

    I just finished Not Suitable for Family Viewing and loved it.

  5. 5 Monkeys: Matched? I don't think I've read that one.

    Amelia: Thanks darling ;)

    Christina: Ooo Deception was good. Which part gave you the goosebumps?
    Amen! Vacation can be so exhausting ;)

    Whitney: That sounds marvelous. I must add it to my TBR :)

    Elle: Pleasure ;) specifically visiting family. And that's defintiely a bit exhausting when your trying to see so many people on such little time ;)

    Not Suitable? Interesting. I'm off to learn more about this title.

  6. Oooh, I love those sort of scenes in books~ I so have to read Emma, she's one of my favorite Austen characters in films, she's so much fun. :D

    The last book I read that gave me a serious case of goosebumps was, I think, The Joy Luck Club. My friend recommended it but it was really, unsettling? The graphic details scared me. D: I had to put it down more than once to take a breather.

  7. Hmmm, well I just checked my book list and since I don't read romance and hardly ever even love stories, it has been a very very very long time since a book gave me goosebumps.

  8. Anna: Oooo it's been ages since I read that book but I remember loving it and being really really moved. ;)

    itsJUSTme: I don't read much romance either. But sometimes goosebumps can come from something moving, thrilling, scary, or exciting. :)

  9. Welcome back. I got goosebumps, but not good ones, bad ones when I read "Sylvia" by Mr Courtney.

  10. Hope you had fun!
    Yay for Emma! I am watching the BBC movie right now (only 50 minutes left!), and I realized that I've never actually read the book. I L<3VE Jane Austen, so I don't know what that's about!

  11. Yay! So glad you are back and enjoying being at home with a great book!

    I think your question is entirely the reason I need to read something fun again. I've been reading too many "serious" and "thought-provoking" books, I need a book that sweeps me away to another place. I need some good suggestions??? (Sorry, I'm thinking more recent, not that I'm not sure Emma is great, I just can't handle "classics" right now either.)

    So glad to have you back! :o)

  12. Welcome back! Last goose bump inducing book was The Summer of Skinny Dipping. It’s an intense little book.

  13. on the right click disabler--I tried to leave the code for you but the comment box won't allow it. If you have an email--I'll send it to you.

  14. Hi JuJu,
    Welcome back my dear!

    I haven't had "chills" in awhile though the Karen White series I read was pretty darn good!!

  15. Michelle: Helllo darling! :) I need to try that KW :)

    Kaye: Oh please :) it's suitejuju(at)gmail(dot)com :)

    Christie: Oooo really? How so?

    1st daughter: Fantabulous question! *scratching chin* I must ponder this :)

    Briz: I'm watching it too :) Isn't it awesome? I will be reviewing it soon.

    Beach: I'm off to check out that title :)

  16. Welcome back!

    Emma is such a fantastic book. LOVE it.

    The last book that gave me goosebumps- MY NAME IS MEMORY. I know a lot of people didn't like it, but I'm completely obsessed.

  17. It was emotional overload, but in a good way ;) The writing was gorgeous. Just an all around beautiful coming of age story with a bittersweet ending. Not a light, fun read. I finished days ago, and I can’t stop thinking about it.

  18. NotNessie: I remember you loving that one :) I need to check it out :)

    Shannon: Thanks sweetie :)

    Christie: Oooo I love books that do that to me :) Thanks for passing back by and explaining :)

  19. Right now I'm reading Drake's Bay. It's not giving me goosebumps exactly, but it is making me "Say what?"
    Very good so far.

  20. such a cool picture!

    goosebumps, huh? i honestly cannot think of one right off-hand. if i do though i'll come back and let you know!

  21. Jenny: I haven't heard of Drake's Bay. I have to check it out :)

    Stacy: Please do ;)

  22. I think that is one of the things good about going away... is coming home!
