On My Wishlist: July 02, 2011: 07/02/11

On My WishlistI've finished my first month of summer school. So far the work load is very manageable. This week it rained which was wonderful but did get in the way of swimming. I hope to swim this weekend.

I finished13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson. It was above and beyond what I was hoping for. I loved it from page one to the very last one. So did my husband who ended up pulling an all nighter to read it.

I finished Arcadia Falls which had a great set up for a dumb ending. The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Prisoner's Dilemma by written by Trenton Lee Stewart didn't come anywhere close to the previous two books in the series. So that was a disappointment.

My total wishlist stands at 841 books.

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

  • The Case of the Left-Handed Lady by Nancy Springer
  • Diving into the Wreck by Kristine Kathryn Rusch
  • The Writing Circle by Corinne Demas
  • Turnabout by Margaret Peterson Haddix
  • Keeping You a Secret by Julie Anne Peters
  • The Invisible Bridge by Julie Orringer
  • Eye of the Crow by Shane Peacock
  • Rampant by Diana Peterfreund (recommended by Bookalicious Pam)
  • The Wide-awake Princess by E.D. Baker
  • Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See
  • Tall Blondes: a Book About Giraffes by Lynn Sherr
  • Roller Skates by Ruth Sawyer
  • Inside Out by Maria V. Snyder
  • Amulet: The Cloud Searchers by Kazu Kibuishi

The Featured Wish for July 02, 2010:

cover artBabymouse: Monster Mash by Jennifer L. Holm and Matthew Holm (Recommended by Half Price Books)

IT WAS A dark and scary Halloween. . . .

This year, Babymouse is determined to have the best Halloween costume and the best Halloween party ever. Will Babymouse be the monster of her dreams? Will Felicia Furrypaws come to the party? And is that really the creature from the black lagoon living in Babymouse’s locker? Find out in the most exciting Babymouse graphic novel yet, Monster Mash!

I saw this book on display at Half Price Books and was immediately drawn in by orange, black and white scheme. Babymouse books are normally pink instead of orange. I'm not a fan of pink. It was so refreshing to see an orange themed one as orange is one of my favorite colors. Also, I like monsters. The book sounds like it was tailor made for me.

I downloaded a couple Buffy Vampire Slayer graphic novels, but wasn't in to them. Not sure why. Not gonna give up yet either.

good luck with your wishlist reads. I loved 13 Little Blue Envelopes too and I definitely recommend the second one, Last Little Blue Envelope as its even better!

I really want to read Rampant as well. I feel like I have had it on my wishlist for awhile now but have never picked it up. Hope you get the chance to read some of your wishlist books soon!
