Bound by Donna Jo Napoli

This book was actually not one I had intended to read. Don’t think it was even on my to read list. It was just a stripped cover book I’d picked up at the store to put on the bookshelf in my classroom for my students to read. Well, last week at school, I didn’t bring… Read more »

Delirium by Lauren Oliver

Delirium by Lauren Oliver

As you might be able to tell, I’m quite into the dystopian teen novels these days. This was another great one. In this world, there are no wars, no fighting, everyone is peaceful.

The Hazards of Working at a Bookstore Vol. 1.4

This entry will actually be a combination of both last Saturday and last night. I just was too busy to get Saturday night’s done. But both nights I found several books, and some of these I’m listing are ones that I had seen before, but forgot about, so my plan of keeping track this way… Read more »
