Back to the Hop!


It's time for another Friday Book Blogger Hop! This is a great event hosted by Crazy for Books and designed to connect book bloggers. I have been so busy this summer, I haven't had time to participate in the hop for a while, but I thought I'd jump back in this week. One of the changes in the itme I've been away from it is the addition of a question of the week. So, this week's question is:

How many books do you have on your 'to be read shelf’?

Well, I should probably make that plural ~ shelves ~ because my books are in various places throughout my house. Some on bookshelves, some in a drawer in my bedroom and most in a pile on my desk in my office. So how many books are on there? Well, I think it's around 25 at the moment, but I do have a few that I'm expecting in the mail as well. I have a page above where I have my list, but I need to update it! So what about you? How many books do you have on your "to be read shelf"?

  7. Hi, Julie, thanks for dropping by my "heartstrings and verses".

    You can imagine me with tons of books in my room and I wouldn't want them elsewhere but in my room so anytime i could just grab a book depending on my mood for the day.
    Top of the list are biography books of great leaders,royalty, great achievers, hollywood personalities...then poetry, classic romance, great places to go, and lo! childrens' books ! I have never outgrown fairy tales and children's verses, stories about dogs ( I love dogs!), and great novels, too. My room is almost like a library.

Banned Books Week: Junie B. Jones by Barbara Park

This is the end of Banned Books Week and unfortunately, I haven't had a lot of time to write about banned books this year. But I did want to include at least one post about it, so today I wanted to share one of the book series that it seems most people are surprised to find on the list: Junie B. Jones by Barbara Park.

According to Wikipedia:
The Junie B. Jones series came in at #71 on the American Library Association's list of the Top 100 Banned or Challenged Books from 2000-2009. Reasons cited are poor social values taught by the books and Junie B. Jones not being considered a good role model due to her mouthiness and bad spelling/grammar. This is an interesting example of a banned book. Many times there are serious, controversial topics featured in books that are challenged. Things like homosexuality, drugs, vulgar language, etc. You can actually understand why people may not want their children to read those books, and why they may challenge their inclusion in school libra…

Book Review: No Story to Tell by KJ Steele

Victoria has been put down since the day she was born. First by her parents who were disappointed that she survived while her twin brother died. Then by her verbally abusive husband and his low-life friends. But soon an intriguing artist named Elliott arrives in town and starts encouraging Victoria to follow her dream of opening her own dance studio. She also begins to receive phone calls from a mysterious someone who gets her to open up about her past and face her true feelings.

In No Story to Tell, KJ Steele has captured the small-town atmosphere and brought these characters to life. From the victimized Victoria, to her drunk and obnoxious husband Bobby and his drunk and obnoxious friends, to all the side characters who you'd expect to encounter in a town like this ~ all are so realistic in both their actions and their voices. She has written a compelling story of an abused woman who thinks she is trapped in this loveless, miserable existence. But then she finds a spark of hope…

Have you ever felt like someone was watching you? You will after reading Clare Mackintosh's latest release I See You. Told from the perspectives of two women, one who appears to be targeted by a criminal and the other who is the police officer working the case, this psychological thriller will have you looking over your own shoulder by the end.

Zoe is a typical working mother who takes the Underground through London to her office every day. Like most commuters, she has a routine that she follows every day, leaving home at the same time, sitting in the same train car, taking the same route to work from the station. It's habit. But she starts to realize this may not be a good idea after seeing her own photo in an advertisement in the newspaper. Another woman who appears in the advertisement is murdered and Zoe starts to ge…
