On My Wishlist: June 11, 2011: 06/10/11

On My WishlistI'm back in school and I spent the first half of my week home with my daughter who was down with a stomach bug which she then shared with me. While feverish and not so interested in eating and busy with homework, I didn't have the brains, energy or time do much reading.

What I did manage to finish was Treasure Hunt by John Lescroart. I loved his descriptions of San Francisco and the surrounding Bay Area but the mystery itself didn't do much for me.

Now I'm reading Glimmering by Elizabeth Hand. I've only just started so I don't have much to say except that it's long.

Upcoming wishlist reads include (they are in my hands waiting to be read):

  • The Naked Mole-Rat Letters by Mary Amato
  • Arcadia Falls by Carol Goodman
  • These Granite Islands by Sarah Stonich
  • The Case of the Left-Handed Lady by Nancy Springer
  • Diving into the Wreck by Kristine Kathryn Rusch
  • The Writing Circle by Corinne Demas
  • 13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson
  • Turnabout by Margaret Peterson Haddix
  • Keeping You a Secret by Julie Anne Peters
  • Secret letters from 0 to 10 by Susie Morgenstern and translated by Gill Rosner
  • The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Prisoner's Dilemma by written by Trenton Lee Stewart

The Featured Wish for June 11, 2010:

cover artJunonia by Kevin Henkes

Returning to the beach cottage—a cottage named Scallop—where she has always celebrated her birthday is a special occasion for Alice Rice.

Who will see the first dolphin this time? The first pelican? What will have changed? Stayed the same? And will this be the year she finally finds a junonia shell?

Alice's friends are all returning, too. And she's certain her parents have the best party planned for her. Alice can't wait. If Alice is lucky, everything will be absolutely perfect. Will Alice be lucky?

I saw a tweet by @MaryAnnScheuer and recognized the author's name from Kitten's First Full Moon. I was so curious that I looked up the book on GoodReads and promptly added it to my wishlist.

Thank you. It will have to wait for me to get through other books higher on the list — unless I happen to see it when I'm at the library.

Most of the books are middle grade, tween or young adult. I will get them reviewed as I get them read.

It's definitely the season for bugs to be floating around, my nephew's fourth grade class was hit hard with one. I hope you and your daughter are feeling much better!

As usual you have such an eclectic and wonderful to-read list. :) I think I'll forward this one on to my brother - I think my niece might enjoy it.

We're better, thanks. I hope to jump back into my reading this week.

Pussreboots

All of the books on my list are ones that I've already found and just have to read. I have another 800 or so that I want to find and read. LOL!

Oh. Junonia sound really good. Thanks for stopping by. Not what I typically read, but sometimes I like to read something different.



Comment #18: Sunday, June 12, 2011 at 21:13:23

Pussreboots

Junonia is very typical for what I read, although I do also like to read outside of my comfort zone.

Hi, and thanks for commenting on my blog!

This seems to be a children's book. It does sound intriguing. The tone is pretty whimsical, too. I'll look it up on Goodreads!

Thanks for sharing! ; )



Comment #20: Sunday, June 12, 2011 at 21:15:24

I'm fairly sure that it's a children's book. Happy reading.
