How My Week Went:

My interns started this week at work and they’re pretty great. I’m also in the thick of prep for Mock Printzmas in July (it’s a book discussion thing we have at work and I am moderating) and helping a colleague plan the annual Harry Potter Birthday party he puts together at the library. Let’s just say there are a lot of plates spinning! I wrote almost ten blog posts this week and I’m feeling a lot better about getting through my backlog (even if I still feel like I’m talking into a vacuum in these posts despite my fun new format–alas).

What I Read:

After finishing Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson (so gooooood), I dove into The Field Guide to the North American Teenager by Ben Philippe which I’m reading for my library’s Mock Printzmas. I picked the short list almost entirely by myself this year so it’s been a relief to see that the books I went with are pretty okay. Philippe’s debut is very Harriet the Spy meets Diary of a Wimpy Kid set in high school (in other words, main character Norris is a little jerk but he’s still funny too). Next up: Kiss Number Eight  by Colleen AF Venable and Ellen T. Crenshaw, There Will Come a Darkness by Katy Rose Pool, and the bindup of volumes 1 through 7 of Deadly Class before I have to return it to my local library.
