And read this:

And whatever comes in from the library. Have a wonderful week!


  1. I think I'm going to have to read more John Green, right? I did love the latest, & An Abundance of Katherines, so more to read, but when? I also want to read Wonder, & all those other good books. Anyway, thanks for telling about these-good list. I loved Kirby Larson's book Two Bobbies-such a great story. I have or have read a few of your others, will look up the others, Katherine. Thanks!

  2. I have Wonder on my radar to order and read when it comes out, and have put John Green on my wish list as well to try.

  3. I need to read Wonder but I am psychologically preparing myself since I need to be in the right place for a sad book.

  4. Now I have to go figure out who John Green is...

  5. Ack! There goes my vow to avoid buying more books until I read the ones I have now! *chuckles*

  6. That is a never ending battle for me. :)

  7. Good luck - I'm a bit obsessive so once I discovered he and his brother Hank's vlog (vlogbrothers on YouTube), several hours of my life disappeared. :)

  8. It was sad but wonderful. The Fault in Our Stars was "sadder", if that makes sense.

  9. Yay! Wonder and anything by John Green are great ways to spend your reading time.

  10. I know! It's hard to find the time to read it all. Some of the picture books I read this week were ok at best. Better to find out when I borrow them from the library rather than buying them, though.

  11. Yay John Green!!!!! I was pretty sure you would love him. Wait until you read The Fault In Our Stars! I say read everything else first and then TFiOS. It's amazing. I love him.
