IMM (03/16/2012)

Written By: Kellie - Mar• 16•12

As someone who rarely has anything to do an IMM, the fact that I am doing two within one week is pretty mind blowing. Not a huge haul this week but two things that I’m more excited for than usual.

The book is a title I am realllyyy excited to read. The Lost Code by Kevin Emerson. I got this book through HarperCollins Canada, specifically The Savvy Reader who I have interacted with a little before this and as of right this second am totally in love with.

Anyways, here is a little about The Lost Code, for some reason this title really jumped out at me and made me less nervous to go request a title. Look for it on May 22nd and my review sometime around then!

“The ozone is ravaged, ocean levels have risen, and the sun is a daily enemy. But global climate change is not something new in the Earth’s history.

No one will know this better than less-than-ordinary Owen Parker, who is about to discover that he is the descendant of a highly advanced ancient race—a race that took their technology too far and almost destroyed the Earth in the process.

Now it is Owen’s turn to make right in his world what went wrong thousands of years ago. If Owen can unlock the lost code in his very genes, he may rediscover the forgotten knowledge of his ancestry…and that less-than-ordinary can evolve into extraordinary.”

The second thing I got in the mail this week was my very own Danbo. What’s a Danbo? The little cardboard guy standing beside the book in the picture who you see pretty much all over my website. I’ve already started taking some pictures with him but I need to find myself some teeny tiny little books to pose him with to work on my Danbo collection for ReaWrite.

Anyways, between all this and some personal stuff (I am planning a fundraiser for my local humane society that is going extremely well), it has been a pretty fantastic week.

Now onwards to St. Pat’s!

  1. So this books come out on my birthday so I might have to get this! I used to think books that were kind of sciency weren’t really my thing, but I’ve recently enjoyed both Digit and The Vanishing Game, so I’m changing my mind about that. Looking forward to your review!
