Waiting for reviews? Here's why

Here's where I'm at:

My Book of Angel by Martine Leavitt from Groundwood Books.
Amazing novel in verse.  Edgy, sad, based on true event.

Yesterday by C. K. Kelly Martin from Doubleday Canada.
Twisted manipulation of memories. Romance.

Rebel Heart by Moira Young from Doubleday Canada.  
Sequel to award-winning Blood Red Road. I was afraid to finish it, apprehensive where it might go but thoroughly satisfied with its ending.

Good Night, Canada by Andrea Beck from Scholastic Canada.   
Picture book travels across our country.

Those books have all been read.  The reviews just have to be written. We won't even mention the glorious books sitting in my ToBeRead pile.

But in the meanwhile, there have been book award winners and nominees about which to blog:

Then, there have been book trailers that I think look amazing, whether I've read the book or not:
  • Crush. Candy. Corpse. from Sylvia McNicoll HERE
  • Infiltration by Sean Rodman (Orca) HERE
  • Dead Run by Sean Rodman (Orca) HERE

The book reviewer's lament: Why are there only 24 hours in a day?


  1. Thanks for mentioning my book trailers, and glad you liked them! If you're interested, I'd be happy to send you copies of the books themselves :)

  2. So true. I'm off to check those trailers now: thanks!
