Weekly Reading Recap

Good evening! I'm a little late writing this since we were on the road today. We spent the weekend in Myrtle Beach, SC, visiting family. I'm very excited to say that I finally got some reading done in 2013! I finished the book I was reading last week, and I read an entire second book. Woohoo!

Recent Reviews and Other Posts
I finished reading Watering Heaven by Peter Tieryas Liu, and I wrote the review too!
I also posted an interview with author Steven Manchester.

In addition to finishing Watering Heaven, I also read Crossing the Rubicon by R.C. Richter. I hope to write the review later this week.

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 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…
