Two months ago I posted the Top Ten Books On My Spring 2014 TBR List. Here is an update on how I’m doing so far.
New to me:
- Tooth and Claw by Jo Walton. Loved it!
- Stardust by Neil Gaiman. Hmm.
- Who Could That Be at This Hour? by Lemony Snicket. Lots of fun.
- When Did You See Her Last? by Lemony Snicket. See above.
- Micro by Michael Crighton. Eep!
- Hercule Poirot The Complete Short Stories by Agatha Christie. Classic.
- The Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie. Read on vacation.
- The Big Four by Agatha Christie. This is the only one I haven’t gotten to yet. I’m picking up a copy at the library tomorrow.
- Sunshine by Robin McKinley. Loved it again!
- The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins. Book hangover!
Additional (not included on my original post):
- The Blackberry Pie Murder by Joanne Fluke. It’s always fun to check in with Hannah and the gang. 🙂
- The Betsy books by Carolyn Haywood. There is nothing my bookish heart loves more than reading stories I loved as a child to my own children. We are flying through this series!
- The Giver by Lois Lowry. I thoroughly enjoyed this dystopian classic.
REMINDER: Our May T3 link up is Thursday, 5/15/14! We’re particularly excited this month, because we have a special announcement to make.

1) Sounds like I need to check out these new Lemony Snicket books. I loved ASOUF when I was a youngun.
2) I’m really glad you liked The Giver because it’s truly one of my favorites.
3) Ooooh, a new announcement! How exciting 😀
1) You totally should!
2) I’m really looking forward to the sequels!
3) It is exciting! Look, Maricel – Alex and I both spelled it right! ;P (Maricel sent me an email awhile ago pointing out that I had typed exited instead of excited. Oops!)
I love The Giver too, but I’m extremely apprehensive about the upcoming movie; I just don’t think there is anyway that’s going to be good. I mean, most movies from books aren’t, but I do wish they would have just left this one alone.
I think I’ll just re-read the book.
There are plenty of movies from books that I love, but I’m not excited about The Giver movie at all. The book is all about the characters’ internal struggles with their society, which probably won’t translate very well to the screen.
Lemony Snicket. How can you go wrong with Lemony Snicket?
You can’t. He’s wonderful! In this series, he references the plots to books, without actually naming the book or author. My kids and I have a blast either naming the book (Pippi Longstocking!) or Googling the keywords to figure out what he’s talking about (we had no idea there were sequels to Harriet the Spy!).
the Betsy books. A treasure of my childhood. Did you read the Moffat series as well?
No, I never read the Moffats, but I loved (and still own) The Hundred Dresses.
