What are you reading friends? 


  1. I've got Things That Surprise You in my pile. Jennifer sent it to me a long time ago, but it kept getting buried. I'm excited to get to it soon!

  2. I love Charlie and Mouse! I just finished Things That Surprise You. It is really great. Jennifer Maschari is a great writer. I also loved The Remarkable Incident of Charlie Price.

    1. I never did read Charlie Price, but have heard excellent things.

  3. The Dollmaker of Krakow is a title to me, thanks for the review.

    1. Hi Tara, I got it on Netgalley. Not a favorite, but some will like it.

  4. Things That Suprise You has been added to my list. I've just put a hold on The Music in George's Head: George Gershwin Creates Rhapsody in Blue. I love good NF picturebooks, especially biographies.
