I am behind on getting this out due to an ongoing illness. But the addition of some new books recently, and a trip to my local Library Book Sale (look for details soon) has given me quite a bit of material to pick from!
Without further ado, I present this (past) week’s selection for Book of the Week:
Dorothy Must Die (PrePublication Excerpt)
By: Danielle Paige
Click on the book to check it out on my GoodReads page, or read the review above under Novel Novels. Trust me – it’s worthy of this week’s pick!

A rousing romp through short stories, author Michael Wood guides us through his early works. Although the stories would stand alone as in an ordinary anthology, the commentary that Wood adds at the beginning of each installment adds not only depth and focus, but also color to his creation.
The first volume in a two part series, Wood revisits 14 unique stories in all their original glory. Some stories are obviously better than others, and are introduced sequentially, from his earliest works to his more current acts of fiction. An introduction to the second volume, Mourning Wood – Volume II: Non-fiction, is at the end of the book, tempting the reader to wonder about the next installment.
We can only hope that Mr. Wood continues to practice his craft, and release further, newer works.
This morning I received an email listing me as a winner of four new First Reads books!
As soon as I receive them, I will be adding them to my reviews. Just to note, the titles are as follows:
If you get a chance to read these books, feel free to review them here, too! To view more about each of these books, click on the title.
I have also started reading two other books:
I will post reviews above under First Reads as soon as I finish them. Please feel free to add a review of your own!
Got March Madness? Want to do the bracket thing, but really aren’t into guys in shorts? Well, for those who would rather curl up with a book than watch guys run around, playing with their balls, here’s just the thing (no matter your reason – I don’t judge!):
