A New Stack of Books (to place under the old stacks of books)

Some books are finally being removed from my self-imposed library restrictions.  Yeah!  (Though, I am still not caught up.  Right now, I am still reviewing books I read at the beginning of April.)

The Lost Conspiracy by Frances Hardinge
Son of the Shadows by Juliet Marillier
Nothing But Ghosts by Beth Kephart
The Princess and the Snowbird by Mette Ivie Harrison

I also got a few for review:
Restitution: a family’s search for their heritage lost in the Holocaust by Kathy Kacer
My Name Is Memory by Ann Brashares
The Gardener by S.A. Bodeen

I bought these because they were on clearance:
Failure Is Not an Option: Mission Control From Mercury to Apollo 13 and Beyond by Gene Kranz

Another copy of Life As We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer

And I borrowed this from my brother:
A Train to Potevka by Mike Ramsdell

Two random notes:
Today I'm heading to a book signing with Kathryn Stockett at The King's English - so I'll be buying myself a copy of The Help (which, you may remember, I loved). I'm going with real life friend (yeah) Suey of It's All About Books. I'm sure she'll be posting something fabulous about it way before I do.

Also, as a random note, yesterday I posted my 301st book review. I was pretty excited about that. Here's to 300 more!

If you buy through my Amazon linkage, I will get a very small percentage


  1. I just posted a blog post that just popped into my head all about worries at author signings. I think you'll get a kick out of it because I have a feeling you can relate! :)

  2. Suey, I am going to read it right now :)

  3. I haven't been to many author signings, but I find them quite exciting!

  4. I'm looking forward to your reviews of Failure Is Not an Option by Gene Kranz and A Train to Potevka by Mike Ramsdell. I'm interested in both of those.

    It was so fun to bump into you yesterday! Thanks for the chat. Happy reading!

  5. Bybee, I get abnormally excited about them. They are so fun!

    Lyn, hopefully I'll get to them in the near future (though, it may not happen). Thanks for inviting us to stay and talk - it was lots of fun!

  6. Melissa,

    I am very much looking forward to the 300 more!

  7. Thanks, Andie. I'm looking forward to more of your suggestions!


Love it when you comment!
