It's Monday! What are you reading? - June 5



It's been a crazy few weeks. I closed on a house and I'm slowing moving into it. I'm moving from my childhood home so it's been a process to go through 30 some years of stuff and decide what can fit into my new home and what can be trashed or sold.  So reading has been slow, but I'm slowly picking up steam.

Currently Reading:

Title: All the Missing Girls

Note: I had no idea this was a book until last last week! Friends of mine all said they enjoyed the movie more than the book, and I can already tell its very different.

Comments: Got this as an ebook ARC from Netgalley and completely forgot about it until I saw the book had come out and then was mad at myself for forgetting about it!

Title: Deadmen Walking (Deadman's Cross Trilogy #1)
Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon
Date Finished: June 2
Stars: 3
Comments:  While not a part of her Darkhunter series, it is in that world as they mention a lot of characters and other things related to that series. While I still enjoy the stories, she really starting to lose me in all these other mythologies and how she merges them all together. But I'm still hooked so I'll keep reading

Blind Date with a Book

Last year I put together a book display called Blind Date with a Book.  I found the idea through another librarian's post and thought it was great.  Last year I wrapped 19 books and 15 books were checked out.  We asked that people reviewed the book but unfortunately only two people returned reviews.
Last year's books included:

In the Hot Zone by Kevin SitesNight by Elie WieselTom Clancy's Ghost Recon by Daivd MichaelsMacbeth by ShakespearA Million Little Pieces by James FreyWolf Hall by Hilary MantelAn Inconvenient Truth by Al GoreUnder the Dome by Stephen KingLawless by Nora RobertsThe Sinatra Files by Tom KuntzThe Help by Kathryn StockettThe Dante Club by Matthew PearlFord County by John GrishamThe Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel BarberyThe Postmistress by Sarah BlakeA Beautiful Mind by Sylvia NasarHide & Seek by James PattersonA Vintage Affair by Isabel WolfGorgeous East by Robert Girardi Most of these books were ones that I either had read or wanted to read.

Went to the 2013 NJLA Adult Services Forum...left with a book list.

Yesterday I attended the NJLA Adult Services Forum (don't worry you don't need to know what it is for this post) and while there attended one panel and spoke on another and walked away with a list of some new books to read.  Since I'm really behind in writing reviews I decided to just share these new books so I at least had a post for today!

Guest Post - The Power of the Written Word

While I am recovering from the stress of writing a final paper, new author, Gerald Freeman, has written a guest post.  His new book "Kill Daddy" is available as a ebook on Amazon.

THE POWER OF THE WRITTEN WORD VERSUS THE POWER OF THE UNSPOKEN WORD
The main objective for anyone involved in the arts is to get their message across, and everything revolves around the efficacy. Artists want to communicate with people, share ideas, passions and experiences. For many of us, the inspiration is life.

I have spent the last 20 years focusing on sculpture and writing, both mediums through which I hope to inspire and share my ideas about us and our role on this planet. I spent 10 years working on my technique in both areas, and a few years ago, I felt ready to put my work out there. I began with sculpture and have been very lucky. I have held some great exhibitions and my work has found a home in many parts of the world. Like writing, it is a gradual process and will take the time it tak…
