Welcome to the World

The baby arrived on the 3rd June 2009 at 8.45 am, one day early.

He is perfect.

I'll be taking a summer break from blogging. Hopefully not from reading (thank goodness for audio books!).

Quick recommendations for two great summer reads.

Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler and Love Struck Summer by Melissa Walker

Great review from Amy here and an Interview with Sarah Ocklar here.

Melissa has a great blog you should check out too.

Have a fun summer, see you in the fall!

Sunday Salon - What to buy?

Lois at Lotus Rising had a competition to win a Barnes and Noble gift card and I won! Which is incredible because I haven't won anything since I won a radio in a Ready Brek colouring competition when I was 8.

Now I have to decide what to spend it on, thank you Lois! This is a question I'm happy to ponder.

These are the YA books I am currently coveting.

Or I could wait and buy one of these when they hit the stores.

So what should I buy? Or have you read a book not included here that you think I have to read and own?

Tomorrow I'll be listing the adult books I'm lusting after.
