Thank you all for the many congratulations on The Littlest Prince!

Life is chaotic and exciting right now, as we fit the newest member of our family into his own little niche.

There has been little time to read since June 6th, but as I come back to the land of the living, I've started to find time to catch up
on reviews from when I was reading like mad while expecting. Some people knit booties, I read!

Some books that stood out during this period:

I'M REALLY NOT TIRED written by Lori Sunshine, illustrated by Jeffrey Ebbeler
ALSO KNOWN AS HARPER by Ann Haywood Leal
and
ABSOLUTELY MAYBE by Lisa Yee

I also read and may be writing up reviews on:
I NEED MY MONSTER written by Amanda Noll, illustrated by Howard McWilliam
GOOD NIGHT WORLD
11 BIRTHDAYS
EMMA-JEAN LAZARUS FELL OUT OF A TREE
THE I LOVE YOU BOOK
DISTANT WAVES
LEAF
THE PATRON SAINT OF BUTTERFLIES
CHRISTIAN THE LION
NEWES FROM THE DEAD
HECK: Where the Bad Kids Go
A GARDEN OF OPPOSITES
I'M YOUR PEANUT BUTTER BIG BROTHER
THIS LITTLE BUNNY CAN BAKE
CHASING BLUE

In the TBR pile, we have:

HOLES
MAMA'S KISS
TEENAGE FAIRY PRINCESS
MEXICAN WHITE BOY

and too many others to list!

So, as you can see, we have the old, the new, and everything in between!
I know I missed some in each category. I can assure you that I loved some of these and I "dis-loved" some (including some that shall remain unnamed because I disliked them so much). I can't wait to fill you in on why I loved some of these and dis-loved others.

I'm still posting reviews on YABC (www.yabookscentral.com), TRT (www.teensreadtoo.com), and ALAN (http://www.alan-ya.org/), so watch for my reviews there as I get caught up!

Tell me what's new with you! What have you been reading, loving, and dis-loving?!

Yay, you're back. I don't know how I missed the news, but congratulations! No maybe about it, I absolutely agree that Absolutely Maybe is a standout.

Hey Julie,
I hope the Little Prince is doing well. I've read so many of the books on your list I'll be anxious to hear what you thought.

Thanks, Jean!
Man, it sure does take a long time to get through books these days.
I think that's why I read like mad during the pregnancy. Now, I just
have to play catch up with reviews and keep chugging a bit at a time
with the reading.

I can't believe i missed your original post, but I'm happy I got to say congrats on FB.

And congrats again!

My own time is steadily approaching, and I'm also reading like mad...

Ack! It's so exciting.
That last month will drag, but MAN, the time flies after that!
Aside from the insane sleep deprivation, it's so fun!
Keep me posted, Allie!

Will do, hon!

We'll have to get our boys together sometime, once they're a little older...
