Women are Crazy, Men are Stupid by Howard J morris and Jenny Lee
(an excerpt from the blurb on the publishers website)
Using wit, hard-earned wisdom, and a highly entertaining he said/she said format, the authors explore the surprising method to his dumbness and the valid reasons behind her insanity, while providing real solutions to perennial relationship problems. By teaching men how and why they're stupid around women and showing women how to "control the crazy" for everybody's sake, Women Are Crazy, Men Are Stupid helps couples to reach the place where giving isn't giving in, needing isn't needy, and where the sexes can break the dysfunctional patterns and find a way to live lovingly, happily ever after.
LEVIATHAN by Scott Westerfeld
I was SUPER excited to get this the other day!!! It is a GEORGOUS book, a YA fantasy novel, and it is taking all of my bookish willpower to not bump it up to the front of the line of my review copies. But alas, there were others before it, so it must wait.
Here is the summary from Scott Westerfeld's website:
Prince Aleksander, would-be heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne, is on the run. His own people have turned on him. His title is worthless. All he has is a battletorn war machine and a loyal crew of men.
Deryn Sharp is a commoner, disguised as a boy in the British Air Service. She’s a brilliant airman. But her secret is in constant danger of being discovered.
With World War I brewing, Alek and Deryn’s paths cross in the most unexpected way…taking them on a fantastical, around-the-world adventure that will change both their lives forever.
Shambhala Publications, Inc.
Here's the summary from the website:
Anna has grown up haunted by her younger sister’s death. In the life she constructs as a barrier against the emotional wreckage of her family tragedy, Anna settles comfortably into a career as a teacher of deaf children. But a challenge arrives—in the form of a young girl. Adrea’s disarming vulnerability and obvious need for love offer Anna the possibility of reconnecting with the world around her—if she has the courage to open her heart.
I have already started this book and it is beautifully written. I also have a SIGNED copy to giveaway! Stay tuned for that!
