In My Mailbox (2.14.10)

In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren.  I had three of my library requests come in this week:

 
  • Nanny Returns by Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus:   I read the Nanny Diaries a long time ago, and I remember liking the movie, so I'm interested to see what a sequel has to offer.
  • The Wizard of Oz by Frank L. Baum:  I'm reading this for the Gilmore Girls Reading Challenge, and because I always wanted to read it but never got around to it - I loved the movie growing up. I didn't realize it when I requested it from the library, but I ended up getting the annotated version, which is humungous, so it seems a bit daunting right now!
  • Confessions of Noa Weber by Gail Hareven:  I can't remember how I found this book, but I have a minor obsession with Israeli literature, so I'm excited to read it.
That's all for this week - I managed to avoid the President's Day coupons (so far, anyway), which I'm proud of. Hopefully I'll have a review for Nanny Returns up this week, as I only have it on a 7-day loan from the library!

  1. Nanny Returns sounds really good. To be honest I didn't read the first book, I just watched the movie! I'd never heard of Confessions of Noa Weber before. I am doing the Gilmore Girls Reading Challenge too but I haven't read any books for it yet. I hope you enjoy your books.

  2. I have heard mixed reviews of Nanny Returns - I look forward to hearing what you think!

    I haven't read much (if any) Israeli lit - I will have to learn more about it!

  10. I remember reading The Nanny Diaries, and it was an alright read. Kind of sad at the end. But now that I know there's a sequel, I wonder if I should read it...

    Anyway, happy reading. =)
