This was another busy week. I’ve been finalizing music choices and working on publicity for the spring season of the children’s and youth choruses I direct. That has taken up a lot of my time, and will need even more time this coming week as we head toward the first rehearsal. I probably won’t have as much time as I’d like for reading and blogging over the next few weeks, but I’ll do my best to fit them both in.
The past week on the blog:
- Mon. 2/18 Dream Eyes, by Jayne Ann Krentz (review)
- Tues. 2/19 Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite Characters in Fantasy
- Wed. 2/20 Love Saves the Day, by Gwen Cooper (review)

Between the library book sale, library holds, and an ARC or two, I brought home a lot of books this week! I’m incredibly excited about one of the ARCS — Scholastic is letting me read The Runaway King, the sequel to Jennifer A. Nielsen’s The False Prince, which I really loved! It comes out on Friday, March 1, so if you’ve been waiting as eagerly as I have, your wait is almost over. I also received The Nightmare Affair by Mindee Arnett, which looks interesting.
From the library, I got Eloisa James’s The Ugly Duchess, JoAnn Ross’s Sea Glass Winter, A. G. Howard’s Splintered, and Ann Osterlund’s Academy 7.
And from the library booksale, I got hardcover copies of numbers 3, 4, 5, 7, and 8 in Rebecca Tope’s Cotswold Mystery series,
