Our Week in Books...

This is our week in books at Libby Blog! 
This feature is not our own original idea and is inspired by so many others that are out there (esp. IMM by Story Siren and Stacking the Shelves by Tynga's Review) with the goal of sharing our new books and getting to know one another a bit better in the book blogging world. If you have a similar post for the week, please share it in the comments so we can comment back... 

I APOLOGIZE FOR THE AWFUL VIDEO! I don't know what the heck has been happening with our videos lately! GRRR! They won't match up! What in the world does this? Does anyone know how I keep this from happening? Sorry! Maybe just listen to it only! It's like a Kung Fu movie in the 80's! GRRRR! 
From the Library...
The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson (Speak/Putnam)

The Sweetness of Salt by Cecilia Galante (Bloomsbury USA)
You Have Seven Messages by Stewart Lewis (Ember/RandomHouse)

Borrowed from a student...
The Last Promise by Richard Paul Evans (Dutton Books)
