On My Wishlist: July 02, 2011: 07/02/11
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 Featured Wish for July 02, 2010:
Babymouse: Monster Mash by Jennifer L. Holm and Matthew Holm (Recommended by Half Price Books)
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.

I didn't buy a copy. I'll see if my library has a copy.

I have never read a graphic novel but this seems like fun.

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 plan to read The Last Little Blue Envelope when I find a copy.

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!

Everything on the bulleted list is here and waiting to be read. But that leaves the other 800+ books to find and read!
