Happy Reading!


  1. That's a chilling tagline!

    1. It really is and that is what got my attention. Yet, it does not totally fit, and I can't tell you why because then I would be spoiling it! It's a really good book, the only thing I would down-grade it for is that the author is definitely British because these American teenagers were definitely not speaking American English. Even so, this was an excellent read and I am hoping to get the review done soon. I think you would like it.

  2. *So* many of that type of book around these days - Enjoy!

    'Only' four for me this week. Mostly fiction so your TBR is safe...


    This Is Not a Game by Walter Jon Williams
    The Peacemaker by C S Forester
    Sharpe's Revenge by Bernard Cornwell


    The Vertigo Years - Change and Culture in the West, 1900-1914 by Philipp Blom

    1. Whew, thank you for always keeping my TBR in mind when you comment on these :)

      I am always a little more wary of fiction on NetGalley, I don't know why. This one turned out to be really, really good. The only issue is the fact that the American teenagers (and parents) were definitely speaking very British-like. It would just throw me off every few paragraphs to have some wholly British saying pop up and I would giggle.

  3. Nothing new in for me this week, either. I am doing well reading books I already have.

  4. oh, THAT'S how it's supposed to work! i never did grasp the essentials... i get lots of books from Gutenberg and roy glashan's library but i didn't think they counted, haha..

    1. Oh, they definitely count! Any new book treasure for the week, no matter how obtained, always counts!
