What’s Digging Through the Stacks? This is just some of the highlights I’ve encountered while digging through my Google reader feed, YouTube, Goodreads, and Twitter. These are posts by other fellow bloggers (mostly) that you should probably check out.

Note: Unfortunately, this is the last of Digging that I’m going to do for a while. If you haven’t noticed, I’ve barely been able to keep up with my memes / posting / Twitter / reading in general.  I just feel a little overwhelmed at the moment. When I finally learn to juggle everything on my plate, I’ll probably start posting these weekly again. :)

Reviews Worth Reading

Convincing, entertaining, well-written or all of the above, these reviews are worth your time.

This review was technically published last week at Electrifying Reviews but I think this book deserves more attention that it deserves! Read Alex’s review of Don’t Let Me Go by J.H. Trumble.

I still have plans to read Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood despite Small’s highly entertaining DNF review.

This review of Fever by Lauren DeStefano at Poetry to Prose was from early March! But I finally had time to read it. Seems like I’m not going to pick this one up.

What caught my eye on GoodReads and was added to the pile. After all the award buzz about this book, I just have to pick it up! … Eventually.

The Girl is MurderTHE GIRL IS MURDER by Kathryn Miller Haines

Iris Anderson is only 15, but she’s quickly mastering the art of deception in this YA novel for fans of Veronica Mars. It’s the Fall of 1942 and Iris’s world is rapidly changing. Her Pop is back from the war with a missing leg, limiting his ability to do the physically grueling part of his detective work. Iris is dying to help, especially when she discovers that one of Pop’s cases involves a boy at her school. Now, instead of sitting at home watching Deanna Durbin movies, Iris is sneaking out of the house, double crossing her friends, and dancing at the Savoy till all hours of the night. There’s certainly never a dull moment in the private eye business.

I’m a sucker for a good title. I saw Horten’s Miraculous Mechanisms in one of the too many emails I get from Barnes & Noble. The cover and title drew me in. I always say that I would love to read more middle grade… this seems like a cute book!

Terrific Trailers

This trailer convinced me to add the book to my TBR pile!

    Cialina, Thanks for mentioning Alex’s review of Don’t Let Me Go! Just an aside, but I got the sweetest fan letter yesterday from a man living in Europe. It was two pages long. Wow.You’re doing great work here! J

  • Steph says:

    Thanks for the link! I really wish Fever had been a better read for both of us. :( Ahh, onto better things!

  • Small Review says:

    Aw, thank you for linking my DNF review! I do hope you enjoy the book more than I did :)

    I totally hear you about feeling overwhelmed! Here’s hoping things settle down for you soon :)

  • Fever jumped aside just in time to dodge the shower of urine, and stumbled into the path of a religious procession - celebrants in robes and pointed hats whirling and clapping and chanting the name of some old-world prophet, 'Hari, Hari! Hari Potter!'
