48 hour book challenge--finish line!
While I didn't get nearly as much accomplished in this year's 48-hour book challenge as last year, I managed to read four books, Between Shades of Gray, by Ruta Sepetys, which had been on my to-read list for quite some time (blog review to come soon); Caleb's Crossing by Geraldine Brooks (blog review posted yesterday); Louise Rennison's new book Withering Tights (isn't that a great title!), and my first book on my new Nook, from NetGalley, The Midnight Zoo, by Sonya Hartnett. The last book doesn't come out until September so I won't be reviewing it on my blog until a bit closer to its release date.
I am currently working as a children's librarian in the Los Angeles metropolitan area. For more on my background, click on my photo to go to my About Me page. You can reach me by commenting on this blog or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like to send me a galley, please contact me for my mailing address.
Some of the books reviewed were received as advance review copies from Amazon Vine or directly from the publisher. Others may have been purchased or checked out from the library. I am willing to receive copies of appropriate books from publishers for review on this blog. Please contact me for further information.
