Book Roundup (16) - April 7, 2013

Merriam-Webster defines 'roundup' as a gathering in of scattered persons or things (source)

Replace 'persons or things' with 'BOOKS!' and you'll have what happens in my house every week as I try to keep control of my hoard :)

Here's what I got the last couple of weeks.

Links are to Goodreads!

October 2012 from Tilbury House Publishers
I cannot tell you how very relevant this picture book is to my life! I feel like I have electronics growing out of my head at times and with a little one at home I always worry I'm spending too much time 'plugged in'. Great book! Review to post soon!

May 2013 from Quirk Books
LOVE this series! If you have a middle grader in your life I highly recommend these books. The way the paranormal elements combine with the way Robert and is friends work together to solve problems is perfect!
See my review of book 1 for more gushing :)

August 2013 from Medallion Press
2013 Debut Author book. The subject matter of this one is a bit more heavy then I usually read but I wanted to push my comfort limits a little. 

2013 from Odyssey Books
Not a whole lot of info out there on this one but after Cindy contacted me and I read her synopsis I wanted to give it a try. Lots of magic and family secrets going on in this middle grade story. I'm looking forward to getting started!

April 2013 from William Marrow
This one is an adult contemporary and if you know me at all you know that I usually stay far away from this genre. However! The premise of this one really struck me - a foster kid ready to age out of the system meets an elderly former orphan-train rider. I'm hoping my instincts were wrong and I'm going to really enjoy this one :)
