Seinfeldia by Jennifer Armstrong
Why I have it: Because “…the sea was angry that day, my friends…”.

Why I have it: Because I enjoyed Apple Tree Yard.
Summary: Man hides out on a tropical island, certain someone is trying to kill him.

Why I have it: Just seems it is everywhere…
Summary: Eleanor decides it’s a ‘get-shit-done’ day. And then all sorts of stuff – not planned stuff and not stuff initiated by Eleanor – happens.
I’m thinking: Yes. Made me LOL.
