Today seems to be review day:
Merrie Haskell's The Princess Curse at Publishers Weekly. Also at the Newbery Book Club (you have to scroll down).
Cherie Priest's Ganymede at Publishers Weekly. With a star.
John Scalzi's Fuzzy Nation at the Book Nook.

Since Rick Perry has officially thrown his hat into the ring, and he's openly advocated for prayer to the Jebus to save us from all the federal government evils, how that working out for Texas? Going dry and burning, all while racking up the pollution. Did I mention the tropical storm that was on target to relive some of the drought that petered out before Galveston? Yeah. Hey Rick, I don't think God likes you so much. Must have been all those years when you denied that religion should really have any bearing on governing. But that was before your policies drove your state into the ground. The dry, dusty, cracked, polluted ground. Oh, and did I forget that compared to GDP, Texas had the second largest state budget deficit last year? I'm sure we'll hear about "the miracle of Texas" over the next year. And let us not overlook that Perry once said that Texas may just "opt out" of the union. So, he's a traitor to boot. Great guy. And I'm sure he'll make the rest of America just like Texas.
