The Twistrose Key

The Twistrose Key - Tone Almhjell, Ian Schoenherr Did not finish. Stopped at page 138.

The Disney Princess Cookbook

The Disney Princess Cookbook - Walt Disney Company, Tony Fejeran Fun cookbook. It would be great for a Princess Party.

I had hoped for a bit more variety. The recipes are pretty much what you see in many kid cookbook's out there.

Doctor Who: The Time Traveller's Almanac

Doctor Who: The Time Traveller's Almanac - Steve Tribe Ehhh. I like the idea of seeing how history and Doctor Who overlap but this book didn't really do it for me. I would have loved to see more classic Who in here. That would have filled in some more dates.
It was pretty dense which didn't make for very easy reading (which is why I ended up skimming).

Doctor Who: When's the Doctor?

Doctor Who: When's the Doctor? - Jorge Santillan Great fun! There was a lot to see. Great 'Easter Eggs' for Who fans.

The biggest problem I had with the book was the "more to find" section was at the very back of the book. That made it a bit difficult to flip back and forth.

The Day the Crayons Quit

The Day the Crayons Quit - Drew Daywalt, Oliver Jeffers Super cute. Who knew each crayon color has such personality?

We Were Liars

We Were Liars - E. Lockhart WHAT?! So, so good.

Review to come closer to release date.

White Whine: A Study of First-World Problems

White Whine: A Study of First-World Problems - Streeter Seidell Overall it was pretty funny. I only ended up reading the screenshots and not the actual book.

Battle Bunny

Battle Bunny - Jon Scieszka, Mac Barnett, Matthew Myers Pretty adorable. How can you not love the 'editing'?

Doomed

Doomed - Tracy Deebs 2.5/5
Meet Rebecca - Jacqueline Dembar Greene Yep, I definitely like the Historical stories better. Rebecca was easy to relate. Who hasn't felt babied before?
Meet Kit: An American Girl 1934 - Valerie Tripp Cute. It went really fast. Almost like there really wasn't a story line.
Saige - Jessie Haas, Sarah Davis I like the historical books better. It was fun to read a contemporary story set in my hometown though. I liked that Saige was proactive about the Art situation. That's a great role model!

Fangirl

Fangirl - Rainbow Rowell I was a bit on the fence about trying this (even though everyone loved it) BUT for only $1.40 I'll try it.
Meet Josefina (American Girl (Quality)) - Valerie Tripp I didn't like this one as much. I'm thinking it's because it's set here in NM so the story isn't new and different for me.
Meet Kirsten: An American Girl, Book One (The American Girls Collection) - Janet Shaw Very cute and sweet. There wasn't a ton of conflict but that's okay. It was a nice little taste of historical fiction for younger kids.
Doctor Who: Who-ology - Cavan Scott, Mark Wright Fun to skim over. There was lots of good and interesting information in here. I was a bit disappointed that it's already out of date! There's was very little information on Clara. [I know the book was published before most of her episodes aired but it's still disappointing.]
