Running out of books!

There seem to be very few books being published in December, and not a hugely large amount in January. I've posted a book review every single day since 1 January 2012, so to keep the streak going, I need to be creative. 

Going back through my collection, I've found some older titles I still recommend. Should I? I'll be rereading the following and posting full reviews.

Alexander, Lloyd. The Book of Three
Weeks, Sarah. Regular Guy
Christopher, Matt. The Basket Counts
Hesse. Kissing Doorknobs
Johnson, Maureen. 13 Little Blue Envelopes
Marunas. Manga Claus
Richardson, E.E. The Devil's Footsteps
Williams, Rita Garcia. Like Sisters on the Homefront

Let me know if there's any back list titles you would like to see me feature!

  1. I always like a good Jack Gantos MG book like Joey Pigza or Dead End in Norvelt.

    1. Hmm. Never really a Ganots fan, but Joey Pigza is a core novel. Have you ever read Love Curse of the Rumbaughs? It was... interesting. Was thinking about that the other day for no good reason!

  2. I like the idea of some backlist reviews, Karen. Have you reviewed Enola Holmes lately? People might want to go back to those after the NetFlix series. I have nothing else to suggest, but I will keep an eye out for what you do review, as always.

    1. I actually have an E ARC of this one, but sadly, my library copy is missing! It was the cute little one, too. May get to that one tonight. Thanks for the reminder.

  3. Oh, yes, definitely review The Book of Three and Manga Claus! And I'd like to see your thoughts on Matt Christopher and if his books hold up these days. (as much as I've enjoyed Matt Christopher--who, incidentally, lived in Rock Hill, just south of Charlotte and over the border into South Carolina)
