Month(s) in Review

I am such a slacker. I didn't post a January review at all.

So here goes.

January-- read 17 books. Three were rereads, one I didn't finish, one LDS fiction, 5 current Reader's Choice and 1 past. I'm not sure I can pick a favorite, there were lots of really good ones.

February-- read 14 books. Six Reader's Choice, 2 Newberry. And I honestly liked almost all of them. :D

On a related note-- I still don't know what features you'd like to see, but I really like the idea of posting quotes/excerpts and the idea of readers picking something for me to review.

So-- what would you like me to review? In March, I'll pick one book suggested by a reader to review. (And another in April, May, etc.)

And I'll start posting excerpts once a week.... Probably on... Wednesdays. Wednesdays sound good.

I still need ideas, though, because I'd like a feature for Saturdays......


  1. You read a lot. Y'know? I'm struggling STRUGGLING to do 1 book a week.

    I think you should read Orson Scott Card's Lost Boys (if you haven't already). It's written about an LDS family, but it's not LDS fiction. It's kind of a murder mystery, kind of a character book ... it's quite spectacular, I have to say.

  2. I read a rather freakish ammount, it's true.
    I have actually (gasp!) never read anything by Orson Scott Card. Ever.
    Weird, huh?
    So, the list of March Possibilities starts with Lost Boys.

  3. I was considering recommending Nic Bishop Spiders, just kidding. :D

    On another note I was tramatized by OSC's Lost Boys. Of course I read it when I was like 12 or 13. Can't stand it and have no desire to read it again. The topic freaked me out.

    Have you read anything by Jessica Day George? I really like her stuff, fairy tale retellings kind of stuff.

  4. I have read Sun and Moon, Ice and Snow by Jessica Day George. I really enjoyed it.
    Which one should I put on my list of March Possibilities?

  5. Dragon Slippers, just finished it this Saturday and I loved it!!!
