- Super Gifted by Gordon Korman - from Balzer and Bray for review
- Animal Expressions by Judith Hamilton - for review; looks like a self-pub
I think both Super Gifted and Animal Expressions came to me via Shelf Awareness. I've already read Animal Expressions, a book of animal photographs with quotations. It's very short and the photos are stunning. Super Gifted is the sequel to Ungifted, which I have not read. But, I have a feeling it won't matter. I read Schooled by Gordon Korman, a few years ago, and I haven't forgotten how hard I laughed. I'm sure I'll love Super Gifted.
Books finished since last Malarkey:
- Future Home of the Living God by Louise Erdrich
- The Heart's Invisible Furies - John Boyne
- Animal Expressions by Judith Hamilton
Since finishing The Heart's Invisible Furies, I haven't decided which novel to start on next but I'm leaning toward a book of romantic Christmas stories by various authors called A Christmas to Remember because I'm in a Christmasy mood.

In other news:
We took a quick trip to Oklahoma for Thanksgiving. It was an awfully short visit because Kiddo needed to be back by in Oxford by Sunday morning, but the traffic was more reasonable than anticipated and we had a good time visiting family. We stopped at a home decorating store in Arkansas, on the return trip, and I put together my Christmas centerpiece with my purchases, last night. It's a hollowed out bit of tree trunk (already had that) with silver pine cones, gold sequined ornaments, and a fake bird with wings and tail made of twigs and glittery spray on his body. Fiona tried to eat his tail.
I shot from a low angle because the dining room table needs tidying. Shhh! Don't tell!
