The Hazards of Working at a Bo..

I see all the Waiting on Wednesday posts of the people I follow and realize that at some point I need to get back to doing that one. Not sure what I’m waiting on though, that I haven’t already talked about at some time in the past. Maybe next week I can come up with […]

Only two books this time. Even though I’ve worked 2 different times since my last post, the 2nd time I worked I was at the cash register the whole time, so only saw what other customers brought up, and nothing new was brought up. Okay, here are the two I saw that I think I’d […]

This is another egalley I received from Abrams Publishing on Netgalley.com. This book will not be published till August 1st, but it will be on my staff recommendations as soon as it is. The main character is Jael. Jael has never really fit in at any school, but she’s moved all her life, almost every […]

Harry Potter and the Deathly H..

No, this isn’t the first time I’ve read this, but when movies are getting ready to come out, I like to read the book again right before. This usually means I’m going to be either irritated or disappointed when I watch the movie, but not always. I actually just watched the first movie that goes […]

Okay, joining in to Book Blogger Hop by Crazy for Books. This week’s question is: How many books are currently in your To-Be-Read (TBR) pile? Wow, I don’t know the exact number. About a year and a half ago I did actually go through and count, and it was over 300 at that time. Now, […]

It feels like forever since I’ve blogged! But it’s really only been 2 days. Silly me. Part of the reason is that I started re-reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows to get ready for the movie, and so I haven’t finished any new books to blog about in a few days. Plus, the egalley […]

The Poisoned House by Michael ..

Yet another egalley from Netgalley. This book is supposed to be published in September, so I’m getting to preview it a bit early. I do enjoy a good historical fiction, and this one did not disappoint. At first my brain kept wanting to think of the main character, Abigail Tamper, as if she was a […]

2011 Debut Author Challenge 11..

Posted June 13, 2011 by Lisa Mandina in / 0 Comments

This is another egalley I got from Netgalley.com. It took me awhile to get into it. Which is kind of weird, because I had picked it as one of the books I would read for the Debut Author Challenge that I’m participating in. And really, let me say, I do really, really, really love the […]

Ruined by Paula Morris

This is a book I got as a strip cover at the bookstore, and I’m not sure why it was sent back. It was really good! I thought it was anyway. The main character is Rebecca. She has to go live with her aunt in New Orleans when her dad has to travel to China […]
