Want it Wednesday

Eek!! 3 days and counting til my nerdy bookish wedding!!! But don't worry, I've still got a Want It Wednesday for you! :)


Never Bite a Boy on the First Date by Tamara Summers

Release Date: 9/29/2009

GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: So I couldn't really find any info on this one, but I want it because I'm currently reading Save the Date by the same author (which turns out to be one of many pen names for the awesome Tui T. Sutherland.) I love when I find new authors, and Tui has written all sorts of fun stuff, so I'm excited to catch up and start reading her books and blog. Plus, how awesome is this: she's going to be on Jeopardy in June!!! Super cool to see a YA author on that show-I'll be watching!

Vision in White by Nora Roberts
Release Date 4/28/2009
About the Book: Wedding photographer Mackensie “Mac” Elliot is most at home behind the camera, but her focus is shattered moments before an important wedding rehearsal when she bumps into the bride-to-be’s brother…an encounter that has them both seeing stars.
A stable, safe English teacher, Carter Maguire is definitely not Mac’s type. But a casual fling might be just what she needs to take her mind off bridezillas. Of course, casual flings can turn into something more when you least expect it. And Mac will have to turn to her three best friends—and business partners—to see her way to her own happy ending.
GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: Yep, it's an adult book and nope I've never read Nora Roberts, and yep it's a typical adult romance, but something about my wedding filled brain really wants to give this one a try. And nope, I haven't been a bridezilla at all! People at work keep telling me how calm I am, which makes me laugh because I sure don't feel calm!! :)

Dear Books: Please Update Your Libraries

There is nothing worse than coming across a book you are really enjoying only to be pulled out of it because of some outdated and incorrect library reference. I know that authors and illustrators will not always get everything 100% accurate, but I when I read books that show a very dated stereotype, or something that is just so incorrect, I always wonder why. I feel like authors and illustrators should know better! And it's not just older books-it happens in new books too! I recently read A Big Surprise for Little Card by Charise Mericle Harper and illustrated by Anna Raff.  I absolutely loved this book! It's a creative look at libraries through the eyes of a library card. It's perfect for my outreach visits and storytimes about the library and promoting what value there is in a library card. Anna Raff gets major points for illustrating a very cool and hip librarian as well! But the librarian tells card to shush and is a bit annoyed when he shows up. And then l
