In a Nut Shell :
Whats New This Week : The Good & The Bad is an exclusive Falling Off The Shelf Feature. It is intended to introduce readers to new titles, and give them an all around opinion of those books. It is also a great way to find new blogs throughout the blogosphere that you may not have known about in the past. Each week I will introduce a few new titles, whether they be Children's Chapter Books, Young Adult, or even Adult titles (maybe even a mix!). Each title will be linked to a Good Review, and a Bad Review, so that you can understand what your getting yourself into before obtaining a copy.
*Good Review* - Recommended by the Reader
*Bad Review* - Not Recommended by the Reader (not to be confused with a badly written review)
-*- Feel free to suggest an upcoming title and/or a review you would like to be showcased by emailing me at FallingOTShelf@aol.com
May 2010 Release
Something Like Fate by Susane Colasanti (Hardcover)
Reading Level : Young Adult
Release Date : May 4, 2010
Best friends Lani and Erin couldn’t be more different. Lani’s reserved and thoughtful; Erin’s bubbly and outgoing. Lani likes to do her own thing; Erin prefers an entourage. There’s no possible way they could be interested in the same guy.
So when Erin starts dating Jason, Lani can’t believe she feels such a deep connection with him—and it may be mutual. The more Lani fights it, the more certain she feels that it’s her fate to be with Jason. But what do you do when the love of your life is the one person you can’t have?
The Good - Book Crazy
The Bad - Once Upon a Bookshelf
This one wasn't actually released this week, but there was such conflicting reviews here that I had to showcase it. I have yet to read this book, but I'll be thrilled when I get the chance.
