There's A Book

This fabulous weekly recap is hosted by Shelia of One Persons Journey Through a World of Books and the kidlit version is hosted by Jen from Teach Mentor Texts. 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 as well as Jen’s and get involved! It’s a blast and I may even stop by to see what you’re up to!

Here’s what we’ve been up to this week:

This week was a much better week than the previous week in terms of basic insanity, so it was a great week…right? Other than that, not much going on around here. Do make sure you don’t miss my wrap-up post about meeting Patrick Ness, and be prepared to see me in all my bookish nerdiness. Other than that, just looking forward to finally hearing who the lucky folks are that are picked for the Independent Book Blogger Awards and hoping that the general feel of the community turns back to what I love after this week’s drama. ;)

    I love Plant a Kiss- such a great message! Same with A Monster Calls although in a whole different way. Btw, still way jealous about the Patrick Ness thing.

    Happy reading this week!
