Weekly Round-Up 6/10

Weekly Round-Up is my wrap-up of last week's activities and includes what I'm reading this week, reviews I've posted, books in the mail and anything else of interest plus From the Library, my weekly listing of what I've checked out from the library.
This week I'm reading by Confessions of an Angry Girl by Louise Rozett and listening to Of Poseidon by Anna Banks, read by Rebecca Gibel .

I reviewed "Who Could That Be At This Hour?" by Lemony Snicket and The Selection by Kiera Cass. 

Juju at Tales of Whimsy pointed out SYNC, a program that "offers free Young Adult & Classic audiobook downloads in the summer months to introduce the listening experience." Every week this summer that will offer a free download of a current book and a paired classic book as well. I'm pretty excited by this. I love audiobooks. So the first week I downloaded Of Poseidon and The Tempest, a Shakespeare play that I've never actually read. So I'm looking forward to that. Go check out their lineup if you are a fan of audiobooks.

Of Poseidon by Anna Banks, read by Rebecca Gibel
Galen is the prince of the Syrena, sent to land to find a girl he's heard can communicate with fish. Emma is on vacation at the beach. When she runs into Galen — literally, ouch! — both teens sense a connection. But it will take several encounters, including a deadly one with a shark, for Galen to be convinced of Emma's gifts. Now, if he can only convince Emma that she holds the key to his kingdom . . .

Told from both Emma and Galen's points of view, here is a fish-out-of-water story that sparkles with intrigue, humor, and waves of romance.


  1. Yayyyy! So glad you did it. Isn't it wonderful? Thank you so much for the shout out too. :)

  2. Wow, thanks for the tip on SYNC - I will definitely check that out! Though I'm pretty slow on audio books during the summer because the kids are home and I have no time to myself!

    Enjoy your books this week -

    1. The great thing is that they don't expire so you can take your time once you download them.
