I haven't blogged about books too much but here are a couple I am looking forward to reading.
The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stievfater
This is the second in the Raven Boys series. Maggie has a distinct voice that I've come to love. Her book, "Scorpio Races" is one of my favorites. Sept. 17th.
This is already out and my daughter took it to read so I wouldn't be tempted to start reading instead of working. Quintana is the conclusion of the Lumatere Chronicles I raved about in an older post. It is the carrot at the end of the stick after I finish the children's book finals.
A lot of buzz about this one by Rick Yancey. It's going with me on the airplane to Kansas City next weekend. (More on that later).
A Facebook friend recommended this trilogy to me. It begins with the Prince of Thorns. I almost stopped reading but was rewarded at the end. Excellent writing. Unpredictable. A complex character I'm still not sure about but definitely invested in. Aug. 8th
I've clamored on and on about Mr. Yancey's Monstrumology series. This isn't for everyone but I'm so glad I gave it a chance. This concludes the story of dear, Will Henry and I fear for him. Sept. 10th.
There are many movies I'm looking forward to but Ender's Game is at the top of the list. If they botch it, I will throw a tizzy fit. November 1st. Get ready Jake. You know where you and Grams are going to be on your birthday.
How about you? Any books to pass on? Movies? Events?
