My favorite books of the month:
Bigger Than a Breadbox-Laurel Snyder
I've heard so many good things about this middle grade novel, so when I saw it displayed in the new arrivals section at my local library, I had to snatch it up! It's an enjoyable, one sitting read with a fresh premise and an endearing protagonist. As an added bonus for me, Rebecca is from Baltimore (as am I) and there are nice references peppered in here and there.
When She Woke-Hillary Jordan
This one of those books that I think people are going to love or hate. There are hot-button issues like abortion and religion featured, so some people might not like it. I was surprised how much I enjoyed this book. It's pretty damned depressing at times, but it's paced beautifully and I absolutely couldn't put it down. I read it in less than a day!
Since I've known who Neil Gaiman was for freaking ever, I'm kind of ashamed to admit that I'd never read one of his books until last month. I've had a couple of his novels sitting on my shelf for awhile now, but when I picked up Neverwhere I was happy to see that it was as good as I imagined his work to be. I loved this book and I can't wait to read more of his work!
Non Bookish things:
:huge, girly sigh:
If you're a fan of the story and haven't seen this yet, I can't recommend it enough!
If you're a fan of the genre, I suggest checking it out on Syfy (or if you're lucky enough to be Canadian, on Showcase!)
I discovered the joy that is the Coke Freestyle Machine. You can pick your main drink, and add flavor shots. How have I lived my life previously without Diet Raspberry Coke? You can look here to see if there's a machine near you.
