October: A Month in Review on WildlyRead

Please excuse me while I congratulate myself for a moment on actually posting REAL LIVE BOOK REVIEWS on my book blog this month! I used to do a lot more of this and then life happened, and so I’ve only recently been getting back into it in a serious way, and boy am I loving it. Here, proudly, are the book posts I’ve made over on WildlyRead for the month of October:

Enjoy!

On WildlyRead: Book Review: Lulu’s Mysterious Mission by Judith Viorst (and a new release!)

lulu's mysterious missionSometimes I have the opportunity to read books at work. It’s the most amazing thing, to not be actively managing a bookstore or department of a bookstore and yet still work in a bookstore. It means I get to do fun things like manage the store’s Facebook account and review books while on the sales floor without the added pressure of  a million other tasks required to be done at the same time. That was the excitement for today – discovering and reading the third book in Judith Viorst’s Lulu series, Lulu’s Mysterious Mission. For a full review and a recommendation for a new release coming out tomorrow, check out the full post on WildlyRead.

On WildlyRead: Audio Book Review: Robin Hood by David B. Coe, Read by Robin Sachs

Robin Hood.David Coe.Robin SachsI’ve started listening to audiobooks again, thanks to my longish commute (20-40 minutes one-way, without traffic). Why I chose to start with this book, I don’t know, but the gist is, unless you love deep, gravelly voices reading to you in English, Scottish, and Welsh accents, skip it. Read more on WildlyRead to understand why.
