Book Bloggers Spreading the Love Valentine's Day Edition!

Monday February 14, 2011

Happy Valentine's Day Blogger-hooligans! Instead of candy how about an a new-to-you ARC??? It won't show up on your hips a week later (maybe on your blog instead??? :)

For a full explanation of  Book Bloggers Spreading the Love go HERE

As we all know one of the many benefits of being an active book blogger who has been around awhile is receiving books for review from authors and publishers. Face it, its pretty awesome! For the most part when I finish reviewing a book I always donate them to my school library but I always have a few on hand that aren't appropriate for a middle school library or perhaps I already have a few copies and don't necessarily need another one. Sometimes I donate them to other schools in my district but I've always wanted to pass them on to other reviewers...

Two up on the block again this week!

I've read this one and REALLY liked it...review from me soon to come :)

The Unidentified
by Rae Mariz
Goodreads summary: Kid knows her school’s corporate sponsors not-so-secretly monitor her friendships and activities for market research. It’s all a part of the Game; the alternative education system designed to use the addictive kick from video games to encourage academic learning. Everyday, a captive audience of students ages 13-17 enter the nationwide chain store-like Game locations to play.

When a group calling themselves The Unidentified simulates a suicide to protest the power structure of their school, Kid’s investigation into their pranks attracts unwanted attention from the sponsors. As Kid finds out she doesn't have rights to her ideas, her privacy, or identity, she and her friends look for a way to revolt in a place where all acts of rebellion are just spun into the next new ad campaign




The Fourth Stall
by Chris Rylander
Goodreads summary: A Ferris Bueler...Bueler.....Bueler.... style comedy..
Do you need something? Mac can get it for you. It's what he does—he and his best friend and business manager, Vince. Their methods might sometimes run afoul of the law, or at least the school code of conduct, but if you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can pay him, Mac is on your side. His office is located in the East Wing boys' bathroom, fourth stall from the high window. And business is booming.
Or at least it was, until one particular Monday. It starts with a third grader in need of protection. And before this ordeal is over, it's going to involve a legendary high school crime boss named Staples, an intramural gambling ring, a graffiti ninja, the nine most dangerous bullies in school, and the first Chicago Cubs World Series game in almost seventy years. And that's just the beginning. Mac and Vince soon realize that the trouble with solving everyone else's problems is that there's no one left to solve yours.
