Well, time flies and we are already halfway through April. This week I have jury duty, it’s tax week, I’m in spring cleaning mode, and I’m unfortunately in a mini reading rut. (I blame Gilmore Girls, my current TV addiction)
Here’s my week in books:
Pointe by Brandy Colbert – I really need to have Ballet week for all of these ballet books I’m acquiring! Pointe is about dance, eating disorders, and a mysterious abduction. And it sounds intense, and everyone’s raving about it!
How to Build a Girl by Caitlin Moran – A coming of age novel set in the 90s about a teen who reinvents herself with a new persona and a job as a rock journalist.
Rumble by Ellen Hopkins - Hopkins tackles religion in her latest – an atheist falls for a Christian girl, and is mourning his brother’s death.
The Misadventures of the Family Fletcher by Dana Alison Levy – This MG book is about a big family that includes two dads, four adopted boys and lots of pets.
We Are the Goldens by Dana Reinhardt – This book is about sisters and secrets!
Born Confused by Tanuja Desai Hidier – Born Confused first came out in 2002 and it’s coming back with a new cover to go with the forthcoming sequel Bombay Blues. Looks like a good coming of age.
Summer State of Mind by Jen Calonita, audiobook performed by Eileen Stevens – This is a summer camp story and companion novel to Sleepaway Girls. Thanks Audiobook Jukebox and Blackstone Audio!
