Feb was Fab!

Fabulous February Reads:

  • Read the Prinz winner, Where Things Come Back by John Corey Whale.  I was sufficiently impressed.
  • Listened to the audio version of The Apothecary by Maile Meloy.  Good narration, exciting story.  A nice post WWII era alternative history with fantasy sprinkled into the mix.
  • Read The Fault in Our Stars by John Green.  It is getting lots of Printz buzz but I am not jumping on the bandwagon.  Wouldn’t be my pick.
  • Finished to middle trilogy books:  Crossed by Ally Condie (matched #2) and A Million Suns by Beth Revis (Across the Universe #2).  I actually  liked Million Suns more than the 1st book in the series, a rarity!
  • My three favorites of the month’s reading:  (1)The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith- Fantastic YA  love story!!!!  (2) With a Name Like Love by Tess Hilmo.  A lovely middle grade novel, the writer’s debut, about family, friendship, and love.  Highly recommend! (3) Balloons over Broadway: The True Story of the Puppeteer of Macy’s Parade by Melissa Sweet.  Very interesting picture-book biography with fantastic illustrations.

Already have some great one’s going for March.  I’ll tell you all about those soon.  Happy  Reading!
