1. The Farseekers, Obernewtyn, and Ashling, a series by Isobelle Carmody (I read the first one not too long ago and it was okay but not great. Next one might be better…)
2. Everything He Hasn’t Told You Yet, by Burton Silver and Martin O’Connor (The Husband and I didn’t find this to be very good; although the assumptions the authors make provided a diversion one evening. Someone in a new relationship might get something out of it. Maybe.)
3. The Bone Doll’s Twin, by Lynn Flewelling (Very dark; if you like gothic and disturbing you might enjoy it. I read the first third and the end and don’t plan to pick up the next in the series. Toni Morrison’s Beloved was a million times better, and actually more disturbing.)
4. Brightness Reef, by David Brinn (I loved Brinn’s first Uplift Saga, all three books of it. This new Uplift trilogy moves much more slowly and I may never finish it.)
5. Buy, Buy Baby: How Consumer Culture Manipulates Parents and Harms Young Minds, by Susan G. Thomas. (I hardly even have to read this one to know I will probably agree completely with it. I’m the parent who only allows her homeschooled kids to “do” school three hours a day, and no homework allowed. No presents at birthdays (although we throw great parties). No tv, no computer time during the week and only one hour on weekends. Let your kids get out and play, America! Quit buying all that plastic crap, too. Ok, more rant later.)
6. Consider the Source: A Critical Guide to 100 Prominent News and Information Sites on the Web, by James F. Broderick and Darren Miller.
7. My Mistress’s Sparrow is Dead: Great Love Stories from Chekhov to Munro, edited by Jeffrey Eugenides
