Running Behind Schedule

Since starting this blog in January 2007, my posting of reviews has pretty much kept pace with my reading. Over the past several months, however, I have been getting further and further behind. There are now nine books that I have read but have not yet posted a review. In chronological order, those books are as follows:

  • Anatomy of a Boyfriend by Daria Snadowsky

  • Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert

  • Mermaids in the Basement by Michael Lee West

  • Janes in Love by Cecil Castellucci and Jim Rugg

  • Bronte's Book Club by Kristiana Gregory

  • To Dance: A Ballerina's Graphic Novel
    by Siena Cherson Siegel and Mark Siegel

  • The Chocolate War by Robert Cormier

  • A Simple Plan by Scott Smith

  • The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde

I could use some help!

Have you read any of these books? Have you posted a review to which I could link? Do you know of any discussion questions or related information to which I could also link?

If you haven't read one or more of these, are there some questions you'd like me to address in a brief review?

Please let me know.


  1. I read The Eyre Affair before I had a blog, so I can't offer you a link, but my review of Eat, Pray, Love is here. I think a couple of book bloggers had posts about The Chocolate War during Banned Books Week, but I can't remember who they were (I read it WAY back in high school...).

  2. I recently read The Chocolate War and was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. Alas, I have so far failed to write a review of it.

    And like Florinda, I read The Eyre Affair in my pre-blogging days.

  3. Wow--it sounds like we are in the same boat! I've been pretty good about keeping up with reviews until the last 2 months, and now I am 8 reviews behind! Yikes! I also need to review Anatomy of a Boyfriend. Did you think the discussion and description of sex was appropriate for a teen audience? Would you let your daughters read it? Did the story bring back memories of any high school crushes?

  4. Questions for Eat, Pray Love:

    Which section was your favorite and why? Some reviewers found Liz to be whiny and self-absorbed, while some have found her honest and humorous--how do you feel about her?
