Comments for On My Wishlist: August 06, 2011

On My Wishlist: August 06, 2011: 08/06/11

On My WishlistThis week I am finishing up The Wide-Awake Princess by E.D. Baker. I had hoped to renew it but it's been put on hold. I have to take it back later today.

Before that I finished Eye of the Crow by Shane Peacock. It's a mystery with a young Sherlock Holmes. He's 13 and he's trying to solve a murder where he's been accused of being an accomplice. It was very good up until the end where it sort of petered out.

I also read Emily the Strange: The Lost Days by Rob Reger and Jessica Gruner. It was a very good hybrid YA mystery and graphic novel. I featured it in last week's Book Blogger Hop.

Other than those three books, it's been a pretty quiet week of reading. I've been out exploring with my children, working on homework and basically doing anything but read!

This week I plan to finish The Libryrinth and start Inside Out.

My wishlist is at 898 and increase of 27 books from last week.

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

  • Tall Blondes: a Book About Giraffes by Lynn Sherr
  • Roller Skates by Ruth Sawyer
  • Inside Out by Maria V. Snyder
  • Dreaming in Hindi: Coming Awake in Another Language by Katherine Russell Rich
  • Agatha H and the Airship City: a Girl genius novel by Phil & Kaja Foglio
  • The Case of the Bizarre Bouquets by Nancy Springer
  • The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff
  • Dandelion Fire by N. D. Wilson
  • Emily the Stange: Stranger and Stranger by Rob Reger and Jessica Gruner
  • Paranormalcy by Kiersten White
  • The Yankee at the Seder by Elka Weber
  • No and Me by Delphine de Vigan

The Featured Wish for August 06, 2010:

cover artPegasus by Robin McKinley

"Because of a thousand-year-old alliance between humans and pagasi, Princess Sylviianel is ceremonially bound to Ebon, her own Pegasus, on her twelfth birthday. The two species coexist peacefully, despite the language barriers separating them. Humans and pegasi both rely on specially-trained Speaker magicians as the only means of real communication.

"But its different for Sylvi and Ebon. They can understand each other. They quickly grow close-so close that their bond becomes a threat to the status quo-and possibly to the future safety of their two nations."

Back in 2007 I reviewed Dragonhaven and really liked it. I've been going through my blog archives to fix up the code and some links that broke over previous blog changes. While working on the archives, I've been looking up authors to see what else they've written. Somehow I just didn't make the connection between Dragonhaven and Pegasus on my own.

Maybe in the future we can compare reviews of Pegasus.

Pegasus looks GREAT! I had never heard of ti; but it really does look great!

Being out exploring with your children is FAR more important than reading! I know this week, I will have a very slow reading week because we have so many plans.

This week we're going on a road trip to Southern California. So I'll be reading even less! But it's so worth it.
