Happy Spring-Read Thing!

Happy first day of Spring! The weather here is beautiful in sunny Florida (despite the overnight rain showers) and the wind is just enough of a breeze that the humidity is not overwhelming! Flowers will start blooming and the birds will start chirping...oops, I've obviously confused myself with someone up north--the flowers are always blooming and the birds are always chirping here. :) Spring Break is in a couple of weeks--Yahoo!!! Life is peachy (with the exception of my Interent connection) with a hint of sweet tea! Come on over if you're sick of the weather in your area--we'll leave the air on for you!

Ok--I'm done. I think.

The real reason for this post is to let you know that Katrina over at Callapidder Days is hosting another Spring Read Thing again. It starts today and runs through June 19th. The books I have chosen to read for this Spring's challenge are:

The Bully by Paul Langan (DONE!)
The Gun by Paul Langan (DONE!)
Until We Meet Again by Anne Schraff (DONE!)
Blood Is Thicker by Paul Langan and D.M. Blackwell (DONE!)
Brothers In Arms by Paul Langan and Ben Alirez (DONE!)
Summer of Secrets by Paul Langan (DONE!)
The Fallen by Paul Langan (DONE!)
Shattered by Paul Langan (DONE!)
Search for Safety by John Langan (DONE!)
Caitlin #1: Becoming Me by Melody Carlson
Caitlin#2: It's My Life by Melody Carlson
Caitlin#3: Who I Am by Melody Carlson
Caitlin#4: On My Own by Melody Carlson
Caitlin#5: I Do! by Melody Carlson
On the Loose by Jenny B. Jones
In Between by Jenny B. Jones
The Coffin Quilt by Ann Rinaldi (DONE!)
Amber Morn by Brandilyn Collins (DONE!)
The Restorer by Sharon Hinck
The Restorer's Son by Sharon Hinck
The Restorer's Journey by Sharon Hinck

I'll have to add the picture of my list as soon as I can stay online for more than a few minutes at a time. I'll also put some links together for these books. Most of them are YA books that I'm reading for work, and the others are ones that I want to read for me. :) I'm sure I'll add other books to my list because I told one of my girls at school that I would read two books and create quizzes on them for her so she could take them for her reading class. (Don't get me started on that topic...)

In any case, I can't wait to see what everyone else is reading. I always get such great titles to add to my TBR pile. Let me know if you decide to join--I wanna steal titles from your list! Happy Reading!

I adore Melody Carlson, and I'm intrigued by her Diary series. I look forward to your reviews:-)

Looks like a good list! Like Deena, I really enjoy Melody Carlson. And The Restorer series by Sharon Hinck looks intriguing. Thanks for being part of SRT '08! Enjoy your reading!

Sharon Hinck's Restorer series is wonderful! I am about to start Restorer's Journey.

I have not heard of many of these authors or books so I am looking forward to some of your reviews! I loved Ann Rinaldi when I was younger and have been thinking that I need to re-read some of her books and catch up on ones that have been published since I last read her.
