weekend reviews (II)

Happy Easter to all those who celebrate! I hope you've had a beautiful Sunday with family and friends.

Here are the remains of the weekend reviews:

Mark S. Luce reviews Sherman Alexie's much-anticipated Young Adult novel, Flight: A Novel for the Los Angeles Times. (Uh-oh, not a good review.)

Not a review, but also in the Los Angeles Times: Jamie Smith Hopkins discusses Snape obsession leading up to the big day this summer. (This reminds me I need to write Leila. Count me amongst the Snape-obsessed.)

Ghost Ship, by Mary Higgins Clark, is the Washington Post Book of the Week.

Mary Harris Russell reviews six new books for the Chicago Tribune. They include:
  • Remembering Mrs. Rossi, by Amy Hest, illustrated by Heather Maione
  • My Friend Is Sad, by Mo Willems
  • The Longest Season, by Cal Ripken Jr., illustrated by Ron Mazellan
  • Junie B., First Grader: Dumb Bunny, by Barbara Park, illustrated by Denise Brunkus
  • Hey Batta Batta Swing!: The Wild Old Days of Baseball, by Sally Cook and James Charlton, illustrated by Ross MacDonald
  • The White Darkness, by Geraldine McCaughrean

Nicolette Jones reviews a ton of new children's books for the Times.
