Okay, so here’s the thing. I’m reading a book or two that I’m enjoying, but I don’t know if I can recommend. They’re marvelous works of writing, but not exactly Virtuous and Lovely, if you know what I mean.
But I can tell you this: A new book is coming out this week, and it will be all kinds of lovely, recommendability, and enjoyability. TWITTERPATED, by our very own Melanie Jacobson. You know that in general I like to actually read a book before I recommend it, but this isn’t your general In General. Because after THE LIST and NOT MY TYPE, we know what we can expect from our Melanie J. (And there’s more to come. You can read about the more here.) This TWITTERPATED book? It will be sassy. It will be funny. It will be romance-y. It will be awesome, because MJ is good at creating awesome.
Also, Kid 4 (the competitive one) was adding up reading minutes for Literacy Month, and he busted through all the Percy Jackson books during February. Now he’s reading Frank Cole’s Hashbrown Winters series, and is asking for a recommendation for the next series. Want to give us some ideas? He’s read the first 2 or 3 Harry Potters, which is probably enough, up to this point in his tender years. He’s 8. So keep that in mind. No gratuitous violence, m’Kay?
And y’all have a couple more days in which to pre-order Tell Me Who I Am, right over here on my sidebar. Saving 30% is what the Cool Kids are doing.
(And for those of you who have been asking, my next book-thing is in limbo. “Limbo” is code for “in the hands of several agents.” So, we’ll see. Patience is my favorite thing, don’t you know.)
