Let me count the days.

Leave a comment



Years ago, in my teens, I used to ask for a calendar for Christmas every single year. And I never got one! Ever. It was the same year after year; I asked for a calendar and when I was done opening my gifts Christmas morning, I was left with no way to mark the next 365 days until it was time to do it again.


This year I received 4 calendars for Christmas. I personally think one can never have too many calendars so I’m okay with it. Particularly when they are as awesome as my new calendars are.


Calendar No. 1:  Harry Potter. Basically, if you have to buy me a gift for any occasion, anything Harry Potter is a pretty safe bet. Any HP calendar automatically earns a place on my wall.


Calendar No. 2:  Big Bang Theory. Love love love love! If you are not familiar with the television show, The Big Bang Theory, well, you should be because it's awesome.


Calendar No. 3:  Animals that look like famous people. A cat that looks like Mother Theresa, (okay, that might be slightly blasphemous, but it’s super cute), a dog that looks like Mr. T… the list goes on and they are adorable. Even the creepy Lady Gaga cat that is December.


Calendar No. 4:  Last but certainly not least. This is the calendar that I specifically asked for. The Book Lover’s Page-A-Day Desk Calendar I can hardly wait until the start of the new year to start looking at it every day! I’ll be blogging some of the recommendations from the calendar as well as any of the books I have already read or plan to in the future.  I won’t allow myself to look forward since I like to be surprised every day when I look at a new page, but I’m looking forward to sharing with you guys!


What literary gifts did you receive for Christmas?

Library trip

3 Comments

I went to the library today to pick up one book that I had requested. I really did plan to just get the one book, but somehow, I left with five. And they are all young adult novels. Last time I went to pick up one book, I left with seven, three of which I haven’t even read yet. Oh well, better the library than the bookstore I suppose.


Moon Over Manifest by Clare Vanderpool

“Abilene Tucker feels abandoned. Her father has put her on a train, sending her off to live with an old friend for the summer while he works a railroad job. Armed only with a few possessions and her list of universals, Abilene jumps off the train in Manifest, Kansas, aiming to learn about the boy her father once was.

Having heard stories about Manifest, Abilene is disappointed to find that it’s just a dried-up, worn-out old town. But her disappointment quickly turns to excitement when she discovers a hidden cigar box full of mementos, including some old letters that mention a spy known as the Rattler. These mysterious letters send Abilene and her new friends, Lettie and Ruthanne, on an honest-to-goodness spy hunt, even though they are warned to “Leave Well Enough Alone.”

Abilene throws all caution aside when she heads down the mysterious Path to Perdition to pay a debt to the reclusive Miss Sadie, a diviner who only tells stories from the past. It seems that Manifest’s history is full of colorful and shadowy characters—and long-held secrets. The more Abilene hears, the more determined she is to learn just what role her father played in that history. And as Manifest’s secrets are laid bare one by one, Abilene begins to weave her own story into the fabric of the town.”

This is the book I went to pick up in the first place. I love to read Newberry Medal & Honor books as well as historical fiction in general so this book fits in perfectly. And, Erik from thiskidreviewsbooks.com reviewed it last week and gave it four out of five bookworms so I am really looking forward to starting it this weekend.


The Awakening (Vampire Diaries #1) by L.J. Smith

“A deadly love triangle

Elena: beautiful and popular, the girl who can have any guy she wants.

Stefan: brooding and mysterious, desperately trying to resist his desire for Elena . . . for her own good.

Damon: sexy, dangerous, and driven by an urge for revenge against Stefan, the brother who betrayed him.

Elena finds herself drawn to both brothers . . . who will she choose?”

I’ve been hearing about this series for several years, it was originally published when I was still in high school, but I’ve just never gotten around to reading it. So when I came across a copy of the first book in the series in the YA section tonight I figured I’d try it out and see how I like it. It has a four star rating average on goodreads so I have high hopes.


So You Want to Be a Wizard (Young Wizards #1) by Diane Duane

“Long before Harry Potter made wizards a fixture on the bestseller lists, Kit and Nita were working magic with readers.

Something stopped Nita’s hand as it ran along the bookshelf. She looked and found that one of the books had a loose thread at the top of its spine. It was one of those So You Want to Be a . . . books, a series on careers. So You Want to Be a Pilot, and a Scientist . . . a Writer. But this one said, So You Want to Be a Wizard.

I don’t believe this, Nina thought. She shut the book and stood there holding it in her hand, confused, amazed, suspicious–and delighted. If it was a joke, it was a great one. If it wasn’t . . . ?”

This book was originally published in 1983. I don’t know how I didn’t read this as a kid but I’m planning to make up for lost time now.


The Christopher Killer (Forensic Mystery #1) by Alane Ferguson

“As the daughter of a Colorado County coroner, seventeen-yearold Cameryn Mahoney is no stranger to death. in fact, she’s always been fascinated by the science of it. so she’s thrilled to finally get some hands-on experience in forensics working as her father’s assistant. but Cammie is in for more than she bargained for when the second case that she attends turns out to be someone she knows—the latest victim of a serial killer known as the Christopher Killer. And if dealing with that isn’t hard enough, Cammie soon realizes that if she’s not careful, she might wind up as the killer’s next victim.”

I picked this one up because the title intrigued me. Once I read the blurby I was sold. I love forensic stuff and murder mysteries so I’m expecting a good read with this one.


Once Upon a Marigold by Jean Ferris

“A young man with a mysterious past and a penchant for inventing things leaves the troll who raised him, meets an unhappy princess he has loved from afar, and discovers a plot against her and her father.”

I’m a fan of any type of fairy tale whether it be old school or a story with a modern twist. This book has won several awards, including the American Library Association Teens’ Top Ten in 2003. It seems to have a good sense of humor about it so it should be a pretty good read as well.

TGIF!

It’s finally Friday! Here’s a list of seven Friday books for your viewing pleasure. What are you reading this weekend?

Friday by Robert Heinlein

“Engineered from the finest genes, and trained to be a secret courier in a future world, Friday operates over a near-future Earth, where chaos reigns. Working at Boss’s whimsical behest she travels from far north to deep south, finding quick, expeditious solutions as one calamity after another threatens to explode in her face….”

I haven’t read this but it sounds interesting. I’ve been reading more science fiction lately so I’m going to add this to my to-read list and see if the library has it.

Freaky Friday by Mary Rodgers

“When I woke up this morning, I found I’d turned into my mother. There I, in my mother’ bed, with my feet reaching all the way to the bottom, and my father sleeping in the other bed. I had on my mother’s nightgown, and a ring on my left hand, I mean her left hand, and lumps and pins all over my head.”

I love this book! I’ve probably read it 20 or 30 times. As a matter of fact, I think I’ll see if the library has it and read it again soon… (I also love the Disney movie starring Jodie Foster which I may now have to watch this weekend…)

Whisking her off to London, Sherry discovers there is no end to the scrapes his young, green bride can get into, and she discovers the excitement and glamorous social scene of the ton. Not until a deep misunderstanding erupts and Sherry almost loses his bride, does he plumb the depths of his own heart, and surprises himself with the love he finds there.”

Friday Night Bites by Chloe Neill (second in a series)

“The story of a young heiress’s initiation into the dark society of the Chicagoland Vampires continues…

Ten months after vampires revealed their existence to the mortals of Chicago, they’re enjoying a celebrity status usually reserved for the Hollywood elite. But should people learn about the Raves-mass feeding parties where vampires round up humans like cattle-the citizens will start sharpening their stakes.

So now it’s up to the new vampire Merit to reconnect with her upper class family and act as liaison between humans and bloodsuckers, and keep the more unsavory aspects of the vampire lifestyle out of the media. But someone doesn’t want peace between them-someone with an ancient grudge…”

A vampire series I’ve never heard of. Intriguing.

Friday Night Lights by H.G. Bissinger

“Return once again to the enduring account of life in the Mojo lane, to the Permian Panthers of Odessa — the winningest high school football team in Texas history. Odessa is not known to be a town big on dreams, but the Panthers help keep the hopes and dreams of this small, dusty town going. Socially and racially divided, its fragile economy follows the treacherous boom-bust path of the oil business. In bad times, the unemployment rate barrels out of control; in good times, its murder rate skyrockets. But every Friday night from September to December, when the Permian High School Panthers play football, this West Texas town becomes a place where dreams can come true. With frankness and compassion, Bissinger chronicles one of the Panthers’ dramatic seasons and shows how single-minded devotion to the team shapes the community and inspires-and sometimes shatters-the teenagers who wear the Panthers’ uniforms. ”

I read this book years ago and loved it. I’ve never seen the movie or the television show but the book was great.

Happy Mother’s Day & Books My Mom Loves

Leave a comment

First of all, Happy Mother’s Day to all the Moms out there!

I wanted to do a special Mother’s Day post; a list of books for moms, that moms loved, about moms… Something along those lines. But all I could find was gift lists. Or lists full of self help books and let’s face it, giving Mom a self help book for Mother’s Day is right up there with giving her a vacuum. So, I figured I’d just go to the source, my mama.

I attribute my love for books and reading to her influence. She took us to the bookstore all the time as kids, and while she wouldn’t always say yes when we asked her to buy us a toy, she very rarely ever said no when I asked for a book. So, I asked her for her top five favorite books to share here, most of which I’ve read based on her recommendation. This is the list she gave me, including her top five faves and two alternates. Happy Reading Moms!


Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier
“Sixty years after REBECCA was first published, Daphne du Maurier’s unsurpassed masterpiece continues to enthrall readers with romance and suspense, as the second Mrs. de Winter narrates the haunting events surrounding her marriage to Maxim de Winter and her growing obsession with his first wife, the beautiful, now dead Rebecca. Includes excerpts from the author’s personal notes and essays, exclusive to this edition.”
Paperback, 410 pages, Published November 1st 1997 by Harper Paperbacks (first published 1938), ISBN13: 9780380730407


Water For Elephants by Sara Gruen
“Though he may not speak of them, the memories still dwell inside Jacob Jankowski’s ninety-something-year-old mind. Memories of himself as a young man, tossed by fate onto a rickety train that was home to the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth. Memories of a world filled with freaks and clowns, with wonder and pain and anger and passion; a world with its own narrow, irrational rules, its own way of life, and its own way of death. The world of the circus: to Jacob it was both salvation and a living hell.”
Paperback, 331 pages, Published April 9th 2006 by Algonquin Books, ISBN13: 9781565125605, Book Sense Book of the Year Award for Adult Fiction (2007), ALA Alex Award (2007), Quill Award Nominee for General Fiction (2006)


Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell
“Sometimes only remembered for the epic motion picture and “Frankly … I don’t give a damn,” Gone with the Wind was initially a compelling and entertaining novel. It was the sweeping story of tangled passions and the rare courage of a group of people in Atlanta during the time of Civil War that brought those cinematic scenes to life. The reason the movie became so popular was the strength of its characters–Scarlett O’Hara, Rhett Butler, and Ashley Wilkes–all created here by the deft hand of Margaret Mitchell, in this, her first novel. A monumental classic considered by many to be not only the greatest love story ever written, but also the greatest Civil War saga.”
Paperback, 1011 pages, Published September 20th 1991 by Pan (first published September 1st 1936), ISBN13: 9780330323499, Pulitzer Prize for Novel (1937)


The Illustrated Man by Ray Bradbury
“That The Illustrated Man has remained in print since being published in 1951 is fair testimony to the universal appeal of Ray Bradbury’s work. Only his second collection (the first was Dark Carnival, later reworked into The October Country), it is a marvelous, if mostly dark, quilt of science fiction, fantasy, and horror. In an ingenious framework to open and close the book, Bradbury presents himself as a nameless narrator who meets the Illustrated Man–a wanderer whose entire body is a living canvas of exotic tattoos. The tattooed man moves, and in the arcane designs scrawled upon his skin swirled tales beyond imagining: tales of love and laughter darkness and death, of mankind’s glowing, golden past and its dim, haunted future. Here are eighteen incomparable stories that blend magic and truth in a kaleidoscope tapestry of wonder–woven by the matchless imagination of Ray Bradbury.”
Paperback, 186 pages, Published June 1967 by Bantam Books (first published 1951), Pulitzer Prize Special Citation: (2007)


Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes
“Flowers for Algernon is a science fiction short story and subsequent novel written by Daniel Keyes. The short story, written in 1958 and first published in the April 1959 issue of The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction, won the Hugo Award for Best Short Story in 1960. The novel was published in 1966 and was joint winner of that year’s Nebula Award for Best Novel (with Babel-17). The titular Algernon is a laboratory mouse who has undergone surgery to increase his intelligence by artificial means. The story is told as a series of progress reports written by Charlie, the first human test subject for the surgery, and touches upon many different ethical and moral themes such as the treatment of the mentally disabled. Although the book has often been challenged for removal from libraries in the US and Canada, sometimes successfully, it is regularly taught in schools around the world and has been adapted numerous times for television, theatre, radio and as the Academy Award-winning film Charly.”
Paperback, 224 pages, Published December 31st 1984 by Bantam (first published 1959), ISBN13: 9780553274509, Hugo Award for Short Fiction (1960), Nebula Award for Best Novel (1966)


Travels with Charley: In Search of America by John Steinbeck
“Travels with Charley: In Search of America is a travelogue written by American author John Steinbeck. It recounts tales of a 1960 road trip with his French standard poodle, Charley, around the United States. He wrote that he was moved by a desire to see his country on a personal level, since he made his living writing about it. He wrote of having many questions going into his journey, the main one being, “What are Americans like today?” However, he found that the “new America” did not live up to his expectations.
Steinbeck tells of travelling throughout the United States in a specially-made camper he named Rocinante, after the horse of Don Quixote. His travels start in Long Island, New York, and roughly follow the outer border of the United States, from Maine to the Pacific Northwest, down into his native Salinas Valley in California, across to Texas, up through the Deep South, and then back to New York. Such a trip encompasses nearly 10,000 miles.”
Paperback, 214 pages, Published February 5th 2002 by Penguin (first published 1962), ISBN13: 9780142000700


The Red Badge of Courage by Stephen Crane
“Following its initial appearance in serial form, Stephen Crane’s The Red Badge of Courage was published as a complete work in 1895 and quickly became the benchmark for modern anti-war literature. Although the exact battle is never identified, Crane based this story of a soldier’s experiences during the American Civil War on the 1863 Battle of Chancellorsville. Many veterans, both Union and Confederate, praised the book’s accurate representation of war, and critics consider its stylistic strength the mark of a literary classic.”
Paperback, 152 pages, Published September 2004 by Prestwick House Inc. (first published 1895), ISBN13: 9781580495868

Happy Star Wars Day! May the Fourth be with you!

2 Comments

Come to the Dark Side, embrace your inner geek. May the Fourth be with you!

Personally, I’ve never read any of the Star Wars books. I guess I knew in some vague part of my brain that there were Stars Wars books out there, but I never realized quite how extensive the series really is. There are literally HUNDREDS of books in multiple series.

I am a self-admitted Star Wars geek so now I’ve started to add the books to my to-read list, which already contains over 3,000 titles. *sigh* So many books, so little time.

So here is a list of series and books to help all you secret (and not so secret) Star Wars geeks out there. I’m including only novels here, no comics or graphic novels — not that I have anything against comics and graphic novels but really, this post is going to be long enough as it is.
