I'm So "Unread"

Nothing makes me feel like I don't read the "right things" like when the New York Times publishes a review of the 100 Notable Books of 2013. I haven't read a SINGLE TITLE on the list. 90% of the titles I hadn't even heard of before. I'M A TERRIBLE LIBRARIAN!!

However, I feel slightly better when reviewing the Notable Children's Books of 2013. At least I've heard of these books! Bluebird and The Dark were commonplace in my story time sessions this year. I LOVE Hilda and the Bird Parade enough to add the whole series to the Graphic Novel collection. I have Eleanor and Park on hold at the library … but I still didn't get to enjoy many of their favorite titles from the year - I think that I will have to make my own list!

Nerding Out on Books

It's been a long, fairly miserable week. However, after a nice long nap, some hot cocoa, and several hours reading I'm feeling much more like myself. How about some nerdy book quotes?

Winter Reading Wish List

In the fall I posted my first ever Fall Reading List … although I didn't make it through all the books, I read others and it was a pretty productive season. Winter won't start for a few more weeks, but Baby, its Cold Outside here in Colorado (… and I might be bored with that list and really want to start a new one). My goal is still to finish a couple more titles on my fall reading list before December 1st - The Girl who Circumnavigated Fairyland on a Ship of Her Own Making and The Bitter Kingdom. Plus, I'm currently reading Evermore. I've added Clockwork Princess to this list because I want to reread the other two first - it spoils the book to spend half of it trying to remember what happened last.

So, you may have noticed that I changed a couple of the books - I started one and it was just terrible, so I replaced it with another … no, that's not cheating :)
