  1. Excited about your list of books! I thought Gone Fishing was really cute. I enjoyed Center of Everything a lot. I haven't read the other titles, but they're all on my TBR list!

  2. WOW! You and I have almost identical piles the only difference they are are all on my summer reading pile. Can't wait to read some reviews. Only 3 more days my friend :) then dock time.

  3. I really want to read Rump and The Real Boy, both look great! Enjoy!

    The Monster Report

  4. All are on my list, too. I'd especially like to read The Center of Everything, though. Soon?

  5. Finished Rump last week and loved it! I also really liked Anne Ursu's Breadcrumbs so I'm looking forward to reading The Real Boy. Adding Gone Fishing and The Truth of Me to my TBR pile.

    Happy Reading!

  6. I love a good fairytale retelling, and I've heard such great things of Rump, I think I'll have to look into it!

  7. Thanks for reminding me about The Real Boy. Maybe I can track down a copy before the 48 Hour Book Challenge this weekend!

  8. All of these are on my list for summer reading...I am going to need a truck to haul the contents of this list around from here and there on my summer jaunts!

  9. Ooo, these books look fabulous. I am especially intrigued by Gone Fishing. I didn't realize MacLachlan had a new book out either (is it new? I just kind of assumed that it was new. Anyhow, it looks good!)

  10. Wow! What a great selection.

    I loved Rump and Center of Everything - and can't wait to get my hands on Real Boy :)

  11. I am in the middle of Rump right now and read The Center of Everything earlier this school year. I smiled when I saw the title Gone Fishing. It's so you! I haven't read the book, but I'll add it to my list. I'll be checking out the other titles too.

  12. Love some of these titles. Can't wait to see Real Boy and The Truth of Me. Just purchased Brontornia after reading about it here. Beautiful.

  13. I just requested Gone Fishing, hadn't heard of it until now! Lots of great titles on your list!

  14. I've read The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly and my family and I have also been avidly watching the TV series Once Upon a Time - Rumpelstiltskin features a great deal in both stories. It would be interesting to read this version of "Rump's" story.
