In My Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren to allow us to share our book love [ : D ]
Glow by Amy Kathleen Ryan
(intriguing plus Kathleen was my Mum’s Name)
Ten Things We Shouldn’t Have Done by Sarah Mlynowski
(I actually have a copy of this one so I took it into the library and have already recommended it to loads of girls)
Dark Angel by Eden Maguire
(another one gone straight in to the library squeee)
Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare
(stunning hardback in The Works for £2:99 so you understand I couldn’t just leave it there)
Mist by Kathryn James
(cover so pretty had to have it – I am awful I know but I like the pretty)
This Dark Endeavour by Kenneth Oppel
(omg I swooned when I opened this one – how fabulous an apprentice Victor Frankenstein – loved Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein so really looking forward to this one)
Huge huge huge thank you to Elle at The Book Memoirs
for sending me books on Children’s Literature that she used on her OU course. They even have fab notes in – I am hoping it will help me further in the library and Elle is just wonderful on children’s literature.
I have a few more but haven’t had time to add them to the post so I shall add them next week.
Things have been veery busy in school, I am sure once I get all the book recommendations out of the way it will ease off a bit.
I had each class write 5 or more random facts about themselves but one of those facts had to be about either books, movies, tv programmes, games or music. From these random facts I am attempting to give them personalised book recommendations, but as they are personalised they are taking me ages to do. A few classes have had them already and the satisfaction of seeing the pupil enjoying the book I picked out for them is just priceless *beams*
Also things at home are rough to say the least and the desktop pc gave up the ghost last week. We have had problems with it since purchase – it has had 3 new motherboards, therefore I am searching for a new PC but I think I shall hold off getting the shiny until the girls and I move. With the current situation I think the sooner we go the better so I shall be busy packing etc too. I hope you miss me as much as I miss you. Thank goodness I have some awesome guest reviews to give me room to breath. You guys ROCK
