Blog Changes

Summer is here (well for me at least), so there is going to be some changes on the blog for the foreseeable future. My schedule is all over the place, and I’m out and about all summer so I won’t be able to post the same way I have in the past.

I still will be posting reviews, and ever so often the monthly features, and there might even be some new stuff, but it just won’t appear as regularly as it has in the past. I simply cannot commit to posting something specific on a specific day….it’s summer, things are suppose to be relaxed : )

There will still be lots of posts, so check back often.

Happy Summer and Happy Reading, and in the meantime…..

Coming soon to a library near you double feature.

This week’s Book: Pegasus

Author: Robin McKinley

Release Date: October 1st 2010


A gorgeously-written fantasy about the friendship between a princess and her pegasus

Because of a thousand-year-old alliance between humans and pegasi, Princess Sylviianel is ceremonially bound to Ebon, her own pegasus, on her twelfth birthday. The two species coexist peacefully, despite the language barriers separating them. Humans and pegasi both rely on specially-trained Speaker magicians as the only means of real communication.

But it’s different for Sylvi and Ebon. They can understand each other. They quickly grow close—so close that their bond becomes a threat to the status quo—and possibly to the future safety of their two nations.

I don’t read a lot of fantasy, but this looks really good.

This week’s Book: The Fortune of Carmen Navarro

Author: Jennifer Bryant

Release Date: November 9th 2010


Carmen Navarro rings up customers at the Quikmart, bored to tears. It’s a job, and she needs it. But Carmen’s true love is music: she dropped out of high school to sing with the Gypsy Lovers and land a recording contract, someday.

Just a few miles away, Ryan Sweeney hunches over his books, a studious cadet with his eye on West Point. There’s not a single girl at the Valley Forge Military Academy, and that’s fine by him.

But when Ryan, on a day pass from campus, spots Carmen, with her shining black hair and snake tattoo, his pulse quickens. Carmen, who normally rolls her eyes at the stiff Academy soldados, can tell this one is different. She slips him a note: “Come hear my band.” A romance begins, unlikely, passionate . . . and quickly imbalanced. In an enthralling narrative of obsessive love, the novel builds to a stunning close.

Inspired by the novella and opera Carmen, Jen Bryant creates a strong-minded and alluring heroine in this contemporary tale of tragic love.
