There's A Book

This fabulous weekly recap is hosted by Shelia of One Persons Journey Through a World of Books. Each week we recap what we’ve read and look at what’s coming up this week. If you’re interested head over to Shelia’s site and get involved! It’s a blast and I may even stop by to see what you’re up to!

  18. My Name is Memory is one that I have wanted to read. I loved her Traveling pants series.

    Enjoy!

    • You know, this might be sad to admit, but I only put together that she is the author of the Traveling Pants series last night. Now I’m even more excited to read My Name Is Memory, it should be great!

  19. Sabrina – Can’t wait to see you at Arm Chair BEA! It’s going to be a blast!

    Becky – A lot of the books are pretty sweet and so fun for kiddos. More YA reviews coming very soon though!

    Tea – Sorry about the slow going, I used to read much much more slowly. It’s just with time that I’ve gotten more speedy. Good luck!

    EJ – Congrats on all your followers and can’t wait to see you at Arm Chair BEA!

    Shelia – Thanks so much for stopping by, I can’t imagine commenting on all of these blogs with your schedule this week! I will definitely let you know if I come up with anything for Arm Chair BEA. I think we are both going to be pretty busy this week, but having tons of fun!

    Laurel-Rain Snow – Thanks for stopping back by to you as well. I’m really looking forward to My Name Is Memory.

    Stephanie – Both the titles you mentioned are for my reviews at Chick Lit Reviews…you should check it out! Can’t wait to see you at Arm Chair BEA!

    Miss Remmers – Thanks so much! I guess it’s just that keeping me busy keeps me sane! Enjoy the wedding and BEA. I’ll let you know about HoN very very soon!

    Robyn – I will have the reviews for both just after Arm Chair BEA wraps up, but definitely worth checking back for!

    Mari – I’m actually one of the Founders of Arm Chair BEA so I’m doing pretty much everything on the schedule. Kind of crazy, but I can’t wait, it’s going to be a blast! A cheerleader gets to make the rounds on all the sites and leaves lots of comments. It should be a great experience! Can’t wait to see you there!

    Judith – I LOVE chick lit! You should check out the other site I review for Chick Lit Reviews. It’s great and has books from both the US and UK. I’ve really enjoyed writing there.

    Jess – You too, have a great week!

    Chelleyreads – Can’t wait to see you at Arm Chair BEA! Have a great week!

  20. Rosalia says:

    I love Mo Willems books and he has this really great philosophy about character design particularly for children. I did part of my thesis on his website, and he has a section devoted to Cat the Cat that you might enjoy with your kids. http://www.gomo.net/page.php?name=Home

    Thanks for visiting my site.

    • What a great thesis to have to work on! That would be a blast! Thanks for the link, my son actually already loves all the fun things he can get into “trouble” with on Willems site…so much fun! And you are so welcome!
