Happy Friday and welcome to another edition of Feed My Reader. Paul here today and I’m anxious to share with a few of the books I’ve added to my reader this week from various sources (Amazon, authors, etc.). This is a great idea hosted by Kathy at I Am A Reader Not A Writer. Feel free to click on the titles or cover images of any of the books to head over to Amazon for purchase. Okay, on to this week’s menu.

I have had the pleasure to add three (yes, three!) great books for kids by author Marilyn Levinson. The first one is And Don’t Bring Jeremy, which was a nominee for six state awards. Here is a bit about it from the Amazon blurb:

And Don’t Bring Jeremy, nominated for six state childrens book awards, is the heartwarming story of two brothers, friendship, and acceptance. 

The second book is No Boys Allowed:

“I’m not a witch!” Rufus tells himself. Witches are female like his mother, his grandmother, and his aunt. Witches study hard and do good deeds. Then why can he read his best friend’s mind?  

Pssst, I’ll let you in on a little secret. I will be reading and reviewing all of Marilyn‘s books soon so keep stopping back by.

Susan is not only a great author, but a wonderful advocate and supporter of authors everywhere. Open Minds is TOP 5 FINALIST for 2012 Best Indie Book, Young Adult Fiction – The Kindle Book Review. Here’s the blurb:

Sixteen-year-old Kira Moore is a zero, someone who can’t read thoughts or be read by others. Zeros are outcasts who can’t be trusted, leaving her no chance with Raf, a regular mindreader and the best friend she secretly loves.

Well that’s it for this edition of Feed My Reader. Be sure to leave me a comment letting me know what you have fed your reader this week, or what you are looking forward to reading.

  1. I got Open Minds awhile ago, but haven’t read it yet. I only got two books personally, but several from NetGalley. Yeah!
