Recent Things Ally Has Been Enthusiastic About (3)

Hey y'all!

I haven't been enthusiastic about anything in awhile, so here's some of the things that have excited me lately:


I've been on a rereading kick. Here's what I've reread lately:

When our sweet friend Sophie linked to this article about Terry Pratchett's daughter adapting the Wee Free Men for the big screen, I rushed to reread all of the Tiffany Aching books. Even if you haven't read any other Discworld books, you need to check these out.  They're wonderful.

Also right now Liz and I are both rereading my beloved Jellicoe Road. There aren't words to talk about how much I love this book. Rereading with Liz has been fun, and we may continue with other books.  Seriously, I could do a whole post about rereading. Maybe I will...

Do y'all read Stacked? Because if you don't, you're being dumb.  Kelly and Kimberly are hilarious, and right now they're running a contemporary YA week series (that will be extended through next week!). The booklists are extraordinarily helpful, all the guest posts have been wonderful and insightful, and this one about Australian YA was delightful. I have blogged elsewhere about my absolute obsession with ozya, and I think it's just about time for me to make another Fishpond order!

STORYTIME UNDERGROUND. People, this is the best resource ever. I'm adding additional storytimes and I went on ST Underground's facebook group to ask for advice and OH MY GOODNESS. These storytimers know everything, and are delighted to share it. My new storytimes are going to be awesome because of the wealth of knowledge at my disposal here. Thanks to Cory, Amy, and Kendra for helping organize it!

What are you enthusiastic about this week?
