The Unspoken by Thomas Fahy

In my goal to read 5 books this week, which I barely made by the book I finished today, this was one I chose because I figured it would be a quick read. But now I’m behind on blogging! So here goes! As I read through the other reviews of this on Goodreads after I […]

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 […]

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 […]

The Wake Trilogy by Lisa McMann

I’ve walked past these books in the teen section at the bookstore I work at for years. The covers always drew me in, and I did pick them up, and thought they sounded interesting, but just never got around to reading them. I once again have the Nook checked out from work, and so, decided […]
