Reviews Updates and Changes

I'm about to start on my second semester of my MLS and one of the classes I'm taking this semester is a children's literature course. Of course that means, I've just added about 100 books to my TBR pile!!!

I'm also on the 2010-2011 Gateway Selector Committee (Gateway is our high school book award for MO) and I have to read and rate 26 books before Decmeber 1st. (I've read 5 so far).

And on top of that, I'm teaching a training at my library in November on tween lit! And all my other regulary scheduled reading. I know, over-committed maybe, but it'll be fun and it means I get to read a ton and my husband can't tell me I'm reading too much. :)

So in addition to my regular reviews, you'll be seeing some Gateway nominee reviews and lit course reviews-because why not review a book after I read it, no matter what it's for? I'm also planning to start reviewing some tween/middle grade reads once a week and highlight those.

Stay tuned and wish me luck-it's going to be a busy semester!!!

  4. I'll be looking for the reviews on Tween/MG books! I find a ton of teen stuff, but not always for the little big younger set.

  5. I look forward to the tween/middle grade books since that's an area I am still getting more accustomed too. I don't read enough in those areas yet.

  7. That is a LOT of books. I hope you enjoy them all. I'm taking three Children's Lit courses this semester and I've only put 19 books in my TBR pile because of it.

Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell

Rating: 5/5 Stars Genre: Realistic Fiction Release Date: 2/26/2013 Add to Goodreads About the Book: Eleanor and Park are both misfits. When new girl Eleanor sits next to Park on the bus, they don't want anything to do with each other. But over the course of the school year, things change. It starts with comic books and becomes a friendship and a romance that the two will never forget. You never forget your first love. GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: Have you ever had a book sit on your shelf that you've heard so much hype about? And you think that books sounds like it would be right up your alley, but you're in a reading slump and you're afraid to give it a try unless it fails? I knew Eleanor and Park sounded like my perfect book, but I was in such an after committee slump that I even though I knew this book would help, I just didn't want to be disappointed. I should have known better because Eleanor and Park was perfect and everything that I had hoped it wou

Post Downton Abbey Reading List

Downton Abbey is over (with a shocking and frustrating ending!) and now I'm suffering Downton Abbey withdrawal. I've got a reading list full of books that I hope will satisfy my post-Downton Abbey cravings and I thought I'd share what's in my pile and get suggestions for other after Downton reads. Here's what I hope to be reading this year (a mix of YA and adult titles):                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  A couple Julian Fellowes reads:                And a few re-reads:                    Edited to add: What's on your Post-Downton Abbey reading list?
