Closed for the Holidays

If you haven’t already guessed it, The Storytopian has all but shut down over the bustle of the Holidays. I’m super excited for Christmas and my trip out of town that follows it. But both contain a lot of prep work, and on top of the work I’ve realized that I need to make myself a priority and focus on relaxing for a couple weeks.

So until 2016, I want to wish you a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

A Look at the Bookshelf Part 2

Welcome back to A Look at the Bookshelf! Today we’re exploring my “Margaret Peterson Haddix +” shelf.

As you can see, I’m a large Haddix fan 😀

Number of books on this shelf that are unread: 15

Number of read books: 4

Now, that looks really pathetic after stating that I’m a Haddix fan – but I’ve read some that I don’t own, and there’s a reason for so many unread. I wanted to wait to read the whole Shadow Children series until I owned them all (ONE MORE TO FIND), and same with The Missing series. And the three non Haddix books are all semi sort of new enough to justify not having read them yet.)

Favorite book on this shelf: Palace of Mirrors hands down. I LOVED this book so much. It was fun, adventurous, romantic, and unique. I highly recommend it!

Which book on the shelf will be read before the others? Interestingly enough, not a Margaret Peterson Haddix book. I’m going for The Cavendish Home for Boys and Girls because it has intrigued me.

Have you read any books by Margaret Peterson Haddix? What was your favorite?
