I can't believe it's October already! Summer went much too fast and I barely remember September. I hope the upcoming winter goes by just as quick. Quicker. We have many cold, snowy months here and it's not my favorite time of year. Fortunately, I have a cozy fireplace and piles of good books just waiting to be read. And even more reviews to post!
Big Nate Strikes Again
by Lincoln Peirce
For review from HarperCollins Children
Big Nate will surpass all others!
But it wont be easy. He's stuck with Gina, his all time enemy, who just might ruin everything!
Will Nate win or lose? Pass or fail? Or end up in detention . . . again?
For review from Penguin
In the Society, Officials decide. Who you love. Where you work. When you die.
Cassia has always trusted their choices. It’s barely any price to pay for a long life, the perfect job, the ideal mate. So when her best friend appears on the Matching screen, Cassia knows with complete certainty that he is the one . . . until she sees another face flash for an instant before the screen fades to black. Now Cassia is faced with impossible choices: between Xander and Ky, between the only life she’s known and a path no one else has ever dared follow—between perfection and passion.
Matched is a story for right now and storytelling with the resonance of a classic.
