Bookish links for Saturday, October 16, 2010


Reviews and blog posts that have me adding to my to-read list:

~ Empty by Susan Weyn, reviewed by Tina at Bookshipper.

~ The Kneebone Boy by Ellen Potter, reviewed by Jennifer at 5 Minutes for Books.

~ Strange Happenings by Avi, reviewed by Bookfool.

~ Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver, reviewed by Michelle at GalleySmith (I think I’ve already added this to my to-read list, come to think of it. I lose track easily.)

~ Wait Till Helen Comes by Mary Downing Hahn, reviewed by Jenn at Jenn’s Bookshelves.

~ Jenn also got me with her review of Rot & Ruin by Jonathan Maberry.

~ Trance by Linda Gerber, reviewed by Amy at Amy Reads.

~ Russian Winter by Daphne Kalotay, reviewed by Laura at I’m Booking It.

Book to movie news:

~ Cassandra Clare’s City of Bones, the first book in her Mortal Instruments series, is being developed into a film.

Other bookish links:

~ Jen from Devourer of Books has a guest post up at The Debutante Ball: The Worst Advice for Working With Book Bloggers.

~ TJ at Dreams and Speculation is hosting a book club next year called The Women of Science Fiction. During 2011, a different book will be read each month, with discussion at the end of the month. I don’t know if I’ll be able to do every book, but Connie Willis’s Doomsday Book is the pick for April, so I’ll be joining in on that one at least.

      Jenn – I love a good spooky story – as long as it’s not tooooo scary. 🙂

  2. Kneebone Boy IS great. My daughter’s going to start on it soon.

    Thanks for the link to the Debutante Ball post. I’m going to check it out.

      Jennifer – I’m hoping to get ahold of a copy of Kneebone Boy to read aloud to my kids.
