So I found this on another blog I follow and thought it would be fun to do as well. It’s sponsored by Jennifer at Crazy-For-Books.com. It’s a place for bloggers and readers to connect and share our love for the written word. And each week there is a question, and here is today’s question: Do […]

I’ve walked past these books in the teen section at the bookstore I work at for years. The covers always drew me in, and I did pick them up, and thought they sounded interesting, but just never got around to reading them. I once again have the Nook checked out from work, and so, decided […]

I actually didn’t pick this book to read as part of the 2011 Debut Author Challenge sponsored by Kristi over at The Story Siren. I had chosed to read So Shelly by Ty Roth. However, that book just didn’t catch me. Sure, I only got to page 20, but I’ve decided there are so many […]

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It is a way to highlight those books for which we can’t wait for their publication date. This week I choose The Slayer Chronicles by Heather Brewer. Heather Brewer is the author of the Chronicles of Vladimir Tod, which I just […]

Well, I wanted to go back and read my review of Eighth Grade Bites, the first in this series, but I can’t find it on my blog. So it’s possible I read this back when I was still blogging on either Live Journal or My Space. Neither of which I really use anymore. I remember […]

So I worked 2nd floor again last night, and saw several new books. One I didn’t get a chance to write down before the name slipped my mind close to when we were getting ready to close. So I have two to talk about. First off I want to mention that one of the books […]

Wow! I haven’t gotten to blog in forever! Hate being so busy. Finally got to finish this book when we got it into the store and I was able to check it out. When I first started reading it, I wasn’t sure if I would like it, it didn’t sound like as good of a […]

So, I worked at the bookstore again last night, and got to be upstairs in the Kid’s Department, my preferred position in the store, but of course, since it was a weeknight, I was basically the whole 2nd floor as well. Found 3 books to share last night. The first is a book I was […]

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases that we are eagerly awaiting. My choice this week is one I’m very excited about! I love the Thursday Next series by Jasper Fforde. I was looking at our SOS (Strict on Sale) list in the […]

I read this book as part of the 2011 Debut Author Challenge being sponsored by Kristi over at The Story Siren. And actually, this was not on the original list I posted when I signed up to do this. However, the ARC was sitting on the table at the bookstore, so I decided to pick […]
