Getting ready for ALA + a couple of reviews

It’s been ages since I last blogged here so I’m not sure how many people will read this, but a couple of updates:

I’ll be at the ALA annual conference this weekend. If you’re also attending, let me know so we can meet!

I’ve written a couple of reviews at Guys Lit Wire which I haven’t cross-posted here. I know, I know, bad blogger! Anyway, the reviews were for The Freedom Summer Murders by Don Mitchell, Fake ID by Lamar Giles (great mystery!), and Ninety Percent of Everything by Rose George.

Some other reading highlights so far this year, in the order in which I read them

  • Hank Finds an Egg by Rebecca Dudley (picture book; sooooooo cuuuuuuuute)
  • Crash Into You by Katie McGarry (didn’t finish her first two books, but liked this one)
  • Command and Control by Eric Schlosser (freaked me out! too bad it didn’t make the Outstanding Books for the College Bound list)
  • These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner (okay, so I admit I had really low expectations for it going in and didn’t actually think I’d read the whole thing, but then I couldn’t put it down and ended up loving it)
  • The Tyrant’s Daughter by J. C. Carleson
  • The Martian by Andy Weir
  • Josephine by Patricia Hruby Powell, illustrated by Christian Robinson (I hope I can make Robinson’s signing at ALA)
  • Salvage by Alexandra Duncan

    Hi Trisha, I am excited to come to ALA as well! As a Young Adult Librarian, you might be interested in coming to an author-signing for “The Straight A Conspiracy (Your Secret Guide to Ending the Stress of School)” with Katie O’Brien and Hunter Maats. They will be in the Tutor.com booth #1243. We can also see if online tutoring is something the Library would be interested in. Hope to see you there!
