I'm focusing on finishing up The Pope's Last Crusade: How an American Jesuit Helped Pope Pius XI's Campaign to Stop Hitler by Peter Eisner. Very timely, since the selection process for a new pope has been underway, this week. A pope from Argentina! Who'd have thought? If I don't finish tonight, I should be locked up in a library for good. I've only got a handful of pages remaining.
The Registry by Shannon Stoker - A New Adult title from HarperCollins for review
Black Box by Julie Schumacher - A "young readers" book (looks like middle reader to me) that has been on my wish list at Paperback Swap for several years. I know I originally found out about this by reading a blog review somewhere, but it's been too long to remember which blog.
Jericho Season 3: Civil War - A graphic novel that continues the TV series Jericho. It backtracks a bit to fill readers in on the story. I've already read this and enjoyed it (purchased).
Swimming at Night by Lucy Clarke - from Touchstone Books (Simon and Schuster) for review
Lincoln's Dreams by Connie Willis - from Paperback Swap. Now that I own a copy, I see that a lot of people really hate this one. Hmm.
My Brilliant Friend by Elena Ferrante - Purchased; a Europa book I've been interested since its release.
Little Wolf Goes to School and Little Bear's Baby Brother by Mary Packard, illus. by Lisa McCue - from Sterling Children's for review with two others in the series
Tuesday is on the brink of ending but I hope to get this posted just under the wire. Kiddo is currently home on Spring Break and Huzzybuns took off the day to get some important things accomplished before they both abandon me -- Kiddo back to school at the weekend and Huz off to Merry Olde England. I pretty much love having them around so it's going to suck when they both take off.
I suppose their absence should give me a bit more time to catch up on that nasty pile-up of reviews in the sidebar. Either that or it'll be a good time to host a party. Shhh! Don't tell! We'll read piles of books together and drink something . . . uh, posh? Like fizzy grape juice! Yes!!!!
I have to go, now. I'm getting too excited.
