Book Blogger Hop #12 and Follo..

The Book Blogger Hop is sponsored by Jen at Crazy For Books. Just read at her site that this will be the last one of these for a while. So sad! But I understand, it does take a lot of time I’m sure to do all of this, as I know I’ve not been able […]

Hunger by Jackie Morse Kessler

Hunger by Jackie Morse Kessler My rating: 5 of 5 stars I actually really liked this book. I think the subject of anorexia is one that is very overlooked sometimes. I liked the irony in a girl who was anorexic being in charge of famine. I liked that the other riders, Death, War, and Pestilence, […]

Waiting on Wednesday – N..

Okay, what I mean by “New Style” is that I know I’m not doing the exact correct thing here, but I’m so far behind on reading since school started back in August, that I kept thinking about how many new books were out that I’d been waiting on, but hadn’t had the time to read […]

Must Read Monday #1

Posted October 24, 2011 by Lisa Mandina in / 6 Comments

Just found this meme through someone I follow, and it is sponsored by Fans of Fiction. It is called Must Read Monday, and I love the creativity behind it! You pick a book based on whatever the theme is, and you explain why it is a must read. But you must explain it using an […]

Repent, Harlequin! Said the Ticktockman: The Classic Story by Harlan Ellison My rating: 2 of 5 stars I read this book after hearing about an author challenging the movie In Time that comes out next week starring Justin Timberlake. The movie is about people only living until the age of 25, and for any time […]

Tighter by Adele Griffin My rating: 3 of 5 stars I borrowed this book from my friend Kim, who won it from a contest here on Goodreads. I actually saw this book before then on the shelf at the bookstore where I work, and blogged about it in one of my Hazards of Working at […]

The Space Between by Brenna Yovanoff My rating: 5 of 5 stars I really enjoyed the first book I read by this author, The Replacement. So I knew I would enjoy this one right away, and was so excited when I won an ARC from I was a little disappointed at first that it […]

The Last Summer Of The Death Warriors by Francisco X. Stork My rating: 4 of 5 stars This is one of the books I read to help with selecting next year’s Gateway Award nominees. I did really enjoy it. Didn’t think I would, again, like many of the titles on the list this year, it […]

Wow, I can’t believe how long it has been since I blogged! School is so busy, 3 jobs are crazy! I also am thinking I may not be able to read the nominees for next year’s Gateway. I am going to get a friend, and maybe some students to help me. But I’m getting an […]

October RAK

Posted October 2, 2011 by Lisa Mandina in Uncategorized / 0 Comments

So, I haven’t done this since this summer, too busy really. But when I heard that you could now buy a specific book for someone’s Nook, and I have a Nook, I thought I’d sign up again and try it out. Plus, it is my birthday month, just like it is the Book Nympho’s, (mine […]
