This was another rather busy week. I got books almost every day and the Media Center was busy with our first book fair of the year. I couldn't resist:
Eon: Dragoneye Reborn by Alison Goodman. We have the hardcover in the Media Center but I wanted to have my own because I have no idea when I will get a chance to read it.
Sabotaged by Margaret Peterson Haddix is the third in The Missing series. I intend to read and pass this one along to my Media Center.
The Strange Case of Origami Yoda by Tom Angleberger has such an intriguing title. I have read about this one on a few blogs and thought it sounded good.
I also won the Spaceheadz Middle Grade pack from Jana at Milk & Cookies. These look like a lot of fun. I'm thinking of having a personal MG Read-a-thon this weekend to read all of them. The package included:
Nightmare at the Book Fair by Dan Gutman
Spaceheadz by Jon Scieszka
The Tweenage Guide to Not Being Unpopular by Jimmy Gownley
We the Children from the Benjamin Pratt and the Keepers of the School series by Andrew Clements
The Case of the Case of Mistaken Identity which is a Brixton Brothers book by Mac Barnett
Then, I couldn't let Amazon believe that I had forgotten about them, so I bought these too.
Immortal Beloved by Cate Tiernan interested me after a saw a number of blog posts about it. I did wait until I could get a copy on Amazon Marketplace before placing my order though.
I couldn't wait for The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan. I liked his Percy Jackson books and wanted to see what more he had to say in that world.
I had to have Beautiful Darkness by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl because Beautiful Creatures was my favorite book of 2009 and I need to know what happens next for the characters.
Stork by Wendy Delsol is a 2010 YA Debut. I was intrigued by the Minnesota setting of this one.
The final book I added to my stack this week was another eARC from NetGalley. I have heard a number of good things about Once in a Full Moon by Ellen Screiber.
