The Book Ferret

The optimistic inspirations of aspiring author Meredith Anderson Coffman.

This is a book appreciation blog! Which basically means I post about books, especially book photography, quotes and fan art.

I have a penchant for postcards, scarves, and ampersands. I also post an absurd amount of photos of my ferret, Quigley.

Little Nook Ferret says, “ppppbbbbbtttthhhhh!”

I hope they’ll make a “Where She Went” movie after If I Stay.

Day Twenty Three: TBR Pile

Pretty sure this is all I’m going to be able to make it through for the readathon. Or at least I’m hoping to make it through these! This week is turning out to be far busier than I had planned. But I’m going to do my best!

Day Twenty-One: People on the Cover

I read this book for an International Children’s Literature class in college. I chose to read several books by Australian author Margaret Mahy. She has some really fantastic books out there but I loved Maddigan’s Fantasia.

How could you go wrong with a book about a traveling circus in a post-apocalyptic Australia?

dandelionfoxx sent me a sweet message letting me know that Margaret Mahy is actually a New Zealander!!! :)

What are your thoughts on Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy?

I greatly enjoyed it. :)

I had no idea how busy this week was going to be. I’m hoping to make it at least through The Chronicles of Prydain, but we’ll see if I get that far. I’m still planning to read Say What You Will, To Kill a Mockingbird, and the two Spiderman Comics next, even if it isn’t during the official readathon. Hopefully I’ll have time to pop my head in and say hi on tumblr, but my week is definitely packed!

Day Twenty-Two: I Need To Buy This

This. I need it. I need it the second it comes out. And I want this particular cover. In fact, I think I shall order it now… *skips off to book depository*

For those of you who are, perhaps, new, this is what “you and your semicolons” is also partially referring to :P. 

OMG you’re adorable.
