A fast-forward update on The Most Important Topic in the World: what I’ve been reading.
I really liked The Monsters of Templeton. I was more articulate about it here.
I didn’t care for Strange Relations. The dialogue made me cringe.
I’m head over heels for The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks. I like me some smart YA. And all the inpeas. I predict that my later review will pugn the book.
Gary D. Schmidt’s latest, Trouble, is on its way to my library in-basket. I didn’t think it was out till later this month, but I looked it up and it was available. And it’s all MINE. Based on my near-adoration of The Wednesday Wars, I’m looking forward to this one.
And in unrelated news, after a flirtation with the stomach flu, I can now eat normal foods (and keep them down). You don’t realize how much you appreciate this until it’s gone.
And with that, it’s time to head to work.
