I was not aware of the 12 Dancing Princesses Fairy Tale until I saw it one day at the bookstore where I work and picked it up and read it really quick. It was a good story. So when I read the premise for this book Entwined by Heather Dixon I was eager to see […]

This will be a combination of Saturday night and last night, as I am way behind on blogging. Which means there are four books to talk about, so here goes. First, I have always been intrigued by the Titanic disaster (as I know many other people are). And imagine my surprise and excitement to see […]

Dead in the Family by Charlain..

I’m not going to do a big long blog on this one. As it is number what in the series? Not sure. But I will say that I did really enjoy it. It took only a few pages to get sucked right back into the world of Sookie Stackhouse and company. And yes, I love […]

The 4th book in the Mortal Instruments series is the first book I’ve bought on my own Nook that I didn’t already own. (Twilight of course had to be the first, and soon I’ll own the whole Twilight series on my Nook so that I can read it whenever and wherever I am without having […]

I didn’t work at the store at all last week, so didn’t have time to do one of these, not to mention didn’t look at any books either. Both of the books I have to share today are kid’s books. I actually got to spend a little time in the kid’s department last night, even […]

Before I get started on my review, let me first say that at the 2nd session I attended at the MASL conference today I got reinspired to try to do book reviews for teacher and library magazines. Wish me luck, and don’t let me just forget and not bother with it! I do know that […]

Plague by Michael Grant

This is the fourth book in the Gone series by Michael Grant, which I was introduced to last year when I was a reader selector for the Truman books. This is a really great series, and this last book I think was one of the best ones. The town is still kind of trying to […]

I know, I know, it’s Wednesday. But when I was scrolling through my blog reading list this morning, I saw this meme on other’s and thought it was such a neat topic that I’d join in this week and now have something to do on Tuesdays as well. This is sponsored by The Broke and […]

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine where bloggers spotlight the upcoming releases they’re eagerly anticipating. I’ve had this book planned to use on a Wednesday since last week, but was too busy to get it done. So here goes. I’ve really enjoyed the Maze Runner series by James Dashner, both the first […]
