Fiction Friday: Uncle Shelby’s ABZ Book

This Fiction Friday is a stray from the normal review of YA and Adult fiction. Primarily because I didn’t have a lot of books in my store that didn’t involve making the reader cry. This is good stuff week after all. I decided to go with one of my favorite children’s author Shel Silverstein and …

Fiction Friday: What Happened to Cass McBride

Well I was hoping to read more over vacation but I ended up swimming and catching up with my friends so I can’t do this Fiction Friday on the book I wanted (worst thing in the world, I know).  I didn’t finish it yet, so I will do this one over another YA book in …

Fiction Friday: Galápagos

I am not going to gush heavily over Galápagos by Kurt Vonnegut. It was a pretty good book and a generally good story but it wasn’t fantastic. I am not sure if it was because I expected too much. I mean, Vonnegut has been heavily recommended to me in the past and this was my …

Fiction Friday: The Book Thief

I have to resist the urge to just say “OMFG go read this book!!!!” ten times. This book was so good it reduces me to adolescent squeals of excitement when I usually talk about it. Seriously, The Book Thief by Markus Zusak is in my top two favorite books of all time and OMFG go …

Fiction Friday

We are a family of readers. Our wallpaper is effectively overstuffed bookshelves covering every topic known to man. (That is, perhaps, an exaggeration. In a fit of frustration, I did put my foot down when it came to a book on dirt, so we don’t have a book on soil.) I am a fiction gal …
