Freaky Fast Frankie Joe
by Lutricia Clifton
2013 Bluebonnet Book Club wiki.
I liked book chatting about this TBA nominee with @utalaniz, a fellow Texas librarian who is also engaged in reaching out to readers through state award nominated titles.
Hold Fast by Blue Balliett was so wonderful. The cover had not appealed to me in the beginning but I soon fell in love with this beautiful and adventure filled story. I HIGHLY recommend Hold Fast and it will be a prominent part on my 2013-2014 library collection.
I received great book chat feedback from these fellow book lovers: @shannonclark7, @kelleemoye, @utalaniz, @libraryfanatic, @middlegrdreads, @jluss @Lori_A-Carter
Library Hold List
I was very happy to receive notice this week that these two goodies had come available from my library Hold List. I am planning a quiet reading weekend. Ha! That will never happen but I still like to pretend. (update: as predicted, my twin daughters created much drama so total lack of sleep. Thanks goodness I can escape into books).
I had a lot of fun book chatting Eleanor and Park with @rainbowrowell @shannonclark7, @got_wanderlust, @mselke01, and @librarygrl2
Ok, now who is going to read a book with me this week? I start with Sapphire Blue and will be open to other suggestions. I am thinking something edgy-Emerald Atlas, Eleventh Plague, The 5th Wave, etc.
Sapphire Blue, by Kerstin Gier, is the sequel to Ruby Red, a science fiction fantasy involving time travel, I am just starting this title. I loved Ruby Red and look forward to reading Emerald Green as soon as it is released in America in October 2013. The series has been translated from German and a German version movie is in the works.
Audio Books this week:
It is hard to believe that it's been 15 years since Harry Potter magically appeared in our literary world. I am looking forward to stocking my library shelves with the new updated cover September 2013. My library copies are barely holding themselves together due to all the love they receive. I kind of like the European version of HP and the Chamber of Secrets shown here on the right side of this page.
