May 5:  May meeting for the Virginia Reader's Choice Committee (I have my list of suggestions---there's some doozies on there!  I can't wait to hear what the others are nominating!)

This coming week:
After I finish Insurgent (the librarian said I couldn't renew as her son was the next on the list, so I had to finish quickly), I plan to read Bitterblue and the Where Things Come Back.  I hope some of the books I put on hold for the VRC (Virginia Reader's Choice) come in, so I can get crackin' on those, too.

May 7:  This post

What are you reading?

  1. Everybody is reading Insurgent and Bitterblue this past week! I still haven't managed to get my hands on either! Hope you enjoy Where Things Come Back. I thought that was a beautifully written novel.

    1. I've heard so many good things about Where Things Come Back, I'm very excited to read it.

  2. Insurgent...this is a new one to me. I'll be interested to hear what your thoughts are once you've red this book.

  3. Love Zapato Power! I need to get through Fake Mustache so I can get to Insurgent and Bitterblue...and now I added the Princess Curse. Looks awesome!

    1. I can't wait to read Fake Mustache! I've loved all of Angelberger's books so far, and there is no doubt in my mind that this one will be great, too!

      Zapato Power was really cute, I liked the idea of his super power shoes. I thought my kiddos would love it, but they aren't getting into it for some reason. :(

  4. Loved Insurgent; disappointed in Bitterblue. I'm anxious to see what you think. I don't know if I was just expecting more/different or what. I *wanted* to love it!
    (My wordpress log-in isn't working!)

  5. I haven't started Bitterblue yet, but I'm feeling like I'll feel the exact opposite (love Bitterblue, but disappointed in Insurgent). I'll let you know, though!
