I recently finished up a memoir for review and although I haven't posted my thoughts yet it kinda spurred a memoir hunt at the library. I checked out 3 of them and am excited to read all of them. I'm currently reading Tithe: A Modern Fairie Tale by Holly Black for the Once Upon a Time III Challenge. I hadn't heard of this one before and picked it up on a whim after seeing an advertisement for it in the back of Uglies (another book that I need to review). It is really good so far! And I just finished reading The Ghost and Mrs. McClure by Alice Kimberly. I SO loved that one! Share your thoughts if you've read any of these :)
Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer- I've been wanting to read this one for awhile now and am excited to get the chance to pick it up.
Straight Up and Dirty by Stephanie Klein- This author has written two books and I found the 2nd one at the library. It sounded really good so I requested the 1st book and it came in this week. It sure sounds like fun :)
Coraline by Neil Gaiman- I seriously squealed when I saw this one on the shelf. I CANNOT wait to read it and it will be my first Gaiman experience.
Prisoner of Tehran by Marina Nemat- This was one I found browsing through the memoirs and boy does it sound interesting!
Have you seen the movie of Into the Wild? The soundtrack is one of my favorites! So good!ReplyDelete
Ali- No, I haven't had the chance. And that is one of the reasons that I picked the book up so I could watch the movie afterwards :)ReplyDelete
Into the Wild is one I'm curious about too.
Nymeth- I am so ready to read Coraline :) I can't wait!ReplyDelete
great library loot, enjoy it :O)ReplyDelete
Coraline is a great book!
Naida- Glad to hear that you enjoyed Coraline...in fact, I remember your review and it was one of the reasons why I picked it up :)ReplyDelete
I haven't heard of Prisoner of Tehran, but it sounds like something I'd really love! I'm off to go check it out. Coraline is a short and fun read.ReplyDelete
Trish- Prisoner of Tehran sounds SOO good. You'll have to let me know if you read it!!!ReplyDelete
I've wanted to read Into the Wild. Coraline is fun and I liked Tithe too. Straight Up and Dirty..the title really caught my attention. Look forward to what you think about this one. I really enjoyed Prisoner of Tehran..great loot!!!ReplyDelete
Staci- The title of her other book was what caught my eye..can't think of what it is now. It should be an interesting read! I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed Prisoner of Tehran!ReplyDelete
Prisoner of Tehran was a really good book. Very powerful if I remember correctly. Enjoy all your picks!ReplyDelete
Dar- I am SO glad to hear that as I hadn't heard of it before. The description inside the front cover is what grabbed me though and now I cannot wait to read it.ReplyDelete
Can't wait to find out what you think of Into the Wild and Coraline. I've read Coraline multiple times, and I'm almost done with Into the Wild.ReplyDelete
I loved Into The Wild; Coraline? Not so much. To me, it had an awesome beginning, and then it just dwindled from there for me. Maybe I should give it a reread, because I'm the only person I know who hasn't raved about it.ReplyDelete
Andi- It must me good if you've read Coraline more than once. I cannot wait to read it myself.ReplyDelete
Dolcebellezza- Interesting. I wonder if I will be like you or everyone else who enjoys Coraline. I guess I'll find out soon enough :)
Coraline is a great book! Hope you enjoy it :)ReplyDelete
Ladytink- I do too! I'm really looking forward to it and then seeing the movie :)ReplyDelete
