It's Monday! What Are You Reading? 05/10/2010


(meme from Book Journey)

So... my catching up on reviews is not quite going as I planned, as I slacked off majorly halfway through last week. lol in other words I don't think I'll get 30 reviews done this month, but how about I promise getting a good chunk of it done by this month? The vague numbers makes all this feel more manageable, lol.

I bought/received 40 Asian children's and teen books while in Singapore. ^_^ I wonder how that New Crayons post will look like...

I have never heard of any of the authors or books on your list so I will be sure to check out your reviews! Oh and I am going to follow your blog as it looks very interesting to me.

I loved Dairy Queen and The Off Season -- I haven't read Front and Center yet. I also loved Marcelo in the Real World, and I liked The Clearing and The Vast Fields of Ordinary. Have a great week!
