Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, where we spotlight upcoming releases that we’re eagerly awaiting.

I haven’t done one of these posts for a looooooooong time, it’s not that I haven’t found lots of books I want, I just haven’t had the time to post the entries.  So I decided to do one today.  I also wanted to say that in the next couple weeks I may have a few […]

I had this sitting in my classroom since last October when our school had its bookfair and I was able to get a hard cover copy for only $8.99!  But it’s like I forgot it was there.  I pulled it out about a month ago when I was doing some cleaning in my classroom, and […]

Tomorrow Land by Mari Mancusi My rating: 4 of 5 stars First I want to thank Netgalley for letting me read the egalley of this book. This is the first book I’ve read by this author, although I know of her from seeing her books at the bookstore where I work. So the premise sounded […]

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, where we spotlight upcoming releases that we’re eagerly awaiting.

Okay, week 2 of doing this meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews.  I feel like such a loser that I really only have one book each time I’ve done one of these memes.  But oh well.  I did actually get some egalleys on Netgalley, but don’t remember when exactly, so I will just have to start […]

Monument 14 by Emmy Laybourne

First I have to say thank you to Netgalley and Macmillan Childrens Publishing Corporation for letting me read the egalley of this book.  It really fits in with all the end of the world stories I seem to be reading lately.  It is set slightly in the future, eveyone carries a “tab” around with them […]
