In Which We Say Goodbye to Samuel Johnson .... For Now

The Gates has been finished and I loved it at the very end just as much as I loved it at Chapter 13. I'm so very glad that there are two more books in this series -- and that I already have both of them in ebook form. I'll need to get them in actual book-book, of course, but when I went to Barnes & Noble they were sold out. I guess I'll have to break down and order them at some point. (Hmmmm ... maybe when I get my next Amazon Affiliate credit.)

So on to the next. I signed up for a NetGalley account against my better judgement (since I already have so many to-be-reads it makes my head spin). Quite a few of my fellow book bloggers oooh and aaah about NetGalley so I figured I would at least take a look. The first book I saw (and then received)? The first in a new series geared toward 4th-8th graders by Rhys Bowen and her daughter!

Rhys, of course, writes the Royal Spyness series (amongst others) and I'm already a fan from those. I can't wait to see how she and her daughter tackle dragons! (It fits in my alphabet-series-random-alphabet-Christie schedule, too!)

Next up (thanks to NetGalley):

GoodReads Blurb:
Seven children. Seven special powers. One enemy.
Addy is a typical California surfer girl until her mother dies and she is sent to a strange boarding school in Wales, where one hallway leads not to another part of the school but to another universe. Addy has always had vivid dreams. Now it seems this power to dream has made her the enemy of the powerful ruler of Gallia.
How can Addy and her new friends be any match for the powerful Grymur who calls himself The One in a world where nothing makes sense.
If you loved Harry Potter, this is for you. By New York Times bestselling author and her daughter.
