Stuff I Got This Week

For Review:
from publisher
(I hadn't heard of this book before it arrived and it seems to be a second in a series...any one read the first one or heard anything about these?)
My name is P.K. Pinkerton and I am a Private Eye operating out of Virginia City. At the moment I am in Jail in the shadow of a hangman's noose. It is all because I tried to solve the biggest mystery here in Nevada Territory and protect a girl who witnessed a terrible crime. If I write an account of what happened, then maybe I can convince the jury not to hang me by the neck until I am dead.

from ARCycling
(Even though this cover is awful, I really enjoyed Sparks and thought I ought to give this a try)
Jennifer Van Der Berg would like you to know that the book ostensibly written about her—Born to Be Extraordinary by Eileen Codlin—is a bunch of bunk. Yes, she had a fairy godparent mess with her life, but no, she was not made into a princess or given the gift of self-confidence, and she sure as hell didn't get a hot boyfriend out of it. Here's the REAL scoop . . .

(No better way to practice reading a language, than with a great book.)

That's what I got this week, What did you all get?


  1. Yikes, that cover for Extraordinary is not very good...but, it sounds like it could be a fun book!

    Hope you enjoy everything :)

  2. OOh nice! Haven't heard of these, except for Alice in Wonderland of course! Hope you enjoy them all!

    Here's my STS

    Have a GREAT day!

  3. Those look like great reads! I hope you enjoy all you got :)

    Here's my STS!

  4. I love the idea of reading a book in another language as practice, I hope you enjoy AiW!

  5. Extraordinary is fun - I didn't even SEE the cover until it was on amazon. Normally they at least SHOW it to you ahead of time. I don't mind it too much, really, except that it's more "middle grade" and Jennifer is supposed to be a heavyset girl with purple hair.

  6. Also, I really wish they'd gone ahead and used "Fairy Godmofo" as the title. People click on links that say that a LOT more than they click on "Extraordinary."


Hello readers! I love comments, so please feel free to leave them. I do comment back on every comment I get, though it may take me a couple of days. Thanks for stopping by!
