I got this cheeky book from crystalclear for the 2019 CBR Book Exchange. I had seen a few so-so reviews for it already, so I was a little worried going into it, but I enjoyed it so much! I can see why some folks didn’t wholeheartedly embrace it, but the potential pitfalls didn’t bother me at all. We are dropped into this world with little to no explanation. Gideon Nav, an orphan who was raised on a planet ruled by the Ninth House necromancers, is […]
This is an extremely late, but huge thank you to The Chancellor for the book exchange goodies! I’ve had The Day the World Came to Town on my TBR list ever since reading a review of it right here on CBR. I work in aviation, and everybody who was here on 9/11 talks about how absolutely chaotic the logistics of that was. I am really excited to read this one. I received this package of books just before going on a trip to Utah, and […]
As is tradition at our house, we open our Cannonball books on Christmas Eve. tiny_bookbot, LouBear was so excited to get the two Shannon Hale graphic novels! And the bookmark magnets are beautiful.

We are so grateful to be a part of such a lovely community. Happy holidays to all!

Plus, I’ll be able to talk about it with my book club pals as “Everything…” was a selection we read last year. Regarding American War, […]
Thank you, scootsa1000, for my fantastic books! I’m a slacker and didn’t post this until now, but I received this right after Thanksgiving (from a fellow Black Friday shopper, I see!) I try to put books on my wish list that I don’t think we have in my library (although looking now, we have both of these in somewhere in the system!) I heard about Heads in Beds by Jacob Tomsky from reviews here (was it Blingle Bells, or ClaireBadger, or Bea Pants? I can’t […]
