The Booker Award


November 8, 2012 by Alice in Readerland

I’ve been awarded the Booker Award by Jessica at Mitten’s Blog Stop! (If you haven’t read Jessica’s blog yet, you should check it out!)

Ahh. Still has that new award smell.

 The requirements of the Booker Award are to write a blog listing your five favorite books, what you’re currently reading, and nominating five other fantastic blogs for this award. Without further ado:

 My Five Favorite Books

1. Watership Down by Richard Adams

2. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

3. 52 Reasons to Hate My Father by Jessica Brody

4. Hoot by Carl Hiaasen

5. The Beekeeper’s Apprentice by Laurie R. King

 What I’m Currently Reading

An ARC of Also Known As by Robin Benway.

From the hilarious and poignant author of Audrey, Wait! comes a fast-paced caper perfect for fans of Ally Carter. 

Being a 16-year-old safecracker and active-duty daughter of international spies has its moments, good and bad. Pros: Seeing the world one crime-solving adventure at a time. Having parents with super cool jobs. Cons: Never staying in one place long enough to have friends or a boyfriend. But for Maggie Silver, the biggest perk of all has been avoiding high school and the accompanying cliques, bad lunches, and frustratingly simple locker combinations. 

Then Maggie and her parents are sent to New York for her first solo assignment, and all of that changes. She’ll need to attend a private school, avoid the temptation to hack the school’s security system, and befriend one aggravatingly cute Jesse Oliver to gain the essential information she needs to crack the case . . . all while trying not to blow her cover.
