  3. The Snow Queen is on my wishlist and Friendship looks like cute chick-lit. Hope you enjoy the last days of summer with the kids!

    1. The Snow Queen was ok. Cunningham's The Hours is one of my all time favorites and I sometimes wonder if any of his other books will live up to that one!

  4. We start early Sept too- coming up fast! Interrupted and Tigerman both look good. I like the cover of The Snow Queen as well.

    1. I can't believe summer is almost gone. Are your kids excited or dreading going back to school?

      Interrupted was great and I think Tigerman will be good, although I started it and put it back down again. I don't think I was in the right mood to read it!

    1. He is always doing that. I guess that means we are paying attention to him!

  13. Wow, the cover of Tigerman is swell.

    I'm readying Sea Glass this week, by my favorite fantasy author, Maria V. Snyder and am currently wondering how Opal, the protagonist is going to get out of (yet another) life threatening experience.

    1. I know. It's such a fun cover!

      I've never read anything by Snyder. Where should a newbie start??
