What Are You Reading?

Hello again! I'm still reading as much as possible so I can give up some books for a book sale at our school in one week's time! Arrrgh, impossible! My To-Be-Read pile is still ginormous! I would actually really like to get into the new Robin Hobb book, but I just have to read a few romance books that I was given, because I can't set them free without giving them a chance!

Here is what I read this week:


My reviews for these books are over at my other blog Owl Book Reviews.

In other news; I have been rearranging our school library so the teenagers have an area of fiction with books written for their age group. These books had previously been filed with the junior fiction, and were hard to find:

Hopefully with some promotion, they will venture in and start borrowing, as the general interest of the teens in the library has all but disappeared over recent years. Does anyone have any tips they can share about getting teens into the library? Please share in the comments if you do.

Going to visit Book Journey now, as Sheila is always very inspiring and has awesome bookish adventures.

Until next time...

What Are You Reading?

Hello! Two weeks in a row I've posted; I'm on a roll!
This week you can find my reviews for these books at my blog Owl Book Reviews:


I am now onto the biggest read of my To-Be-Read shelf because I want to sell a heap of my books in a sale at my school. I know it's nice to keep them all, but it's for a good cause. I will only be holding onto books I've given a five star rating, because they are close to my heart. Besides, it leaves me heaps of space for new books, hee, hee. (My hubby's already worried that I'll take 200 books to the sale and come back with 300. It's quite possible too!)

So you will be seeing a lot of reviews for books that have sat for a very long time, because I always tend to read new titles or recommends rather than ones I've picked up second hand. I have stacked all the ones I expect to sell by my bed, and it looks quite daunting, but it will be an enjoyable challenge.

Before I get back to it I'm off see the latest book reviews from my friends at Sheila's blog;

where I know I will get a ton more recommends. Ah, me, what's a girl to do?

Until then...

What Are You Reading?

I'm still alive! I know, I know, I never post on my blog anymore, but I always want to and just never have the time. Still I'm here to let you know that I'm reading more than ever, and have started posting my reviews again on my blog Owl Book Reviews. You can read my reviews for these books there:


And in exciting news...I met Robin Hobb!!!!! She was at Supanova in Perth in July and I was just beside myself waiting to meet her. I could feel myself welling up while I was in line, and I just had to hold it back, but I was trembling the whole time. I really wanted to hug her! Authors are the new rock stars.

Next week her new book Fool's Assassin is released and I cannot wait! I've already read the ibooks sample, so now I'm truly pumped!

Popping over to Sheila's awesome blog now to catch up with some old reading friends:

Until next time...
