Library Loot (79 & 80), review copies & a purchase

Library Loot

These two are for me to sample for my children's reading group; several of the group are reading Diary of a Wimpy Kid next time and I want to what all the fuss is about. I've read some of the Dork Diaries: Party Time and found it quite funny.

Bought (not shown)


Some of these got stuck in the post due to snow.

January publications:


Wish Me Dead by Helen Grant (2 June 2011, Puffin)
The funny thing is I never even meant the first one. Now I bitterly regret visiting the cursed witch’s house, deep in the middle of the forest. It’s where I made my wishes. I wished Klara Klein dead. It came true. I wished for the most gorgeous boy in town to finally notice me. It came true. I wished to be rid of the poisonous busybody who destroyed my family. It came true. I didn’t mean for this to happen. Not me, Steffi Nett, the shy one who never says anything. But as the body count increases with every wish I make . . .who else could it be?


  1. Wow I so want Bloody Valentine and Halo. What a great start to the New Year.
    Wishing you loads of love and happiness in 2011 - and of course many totally awesome books ;D
