Tales From the TBR Pile: The House of the Scorpion

I hear nothing but great things about this book--over & over.  From other blogs and from kids in my school.  I even bought a copy for my Nook.  Reading this has been one of my main goals this summer, and yet, I still haven't picked it up.  I am even pretty sure that I will really enjoy it!  I am just not sure why I haven't started it yet.
So tell me, what's on your TBR that you really should read.
Or tell me why I really need to start this one!

(*tales from the TBR is my new occasional feature highlighting a book on my TBR pile, one that's been there awhile, and letting you know why it was on my pile to begin with)


  1. Oooh, you must read this. This is the book that made me a fan of Nancy Farmer. It goes off on a tangent for a bit (you'll know where), but Matt growing up was fantastic. I'm dying and hoping for the sequel to come out (there's been rumors).

    1. Thanks Heather. I still haven't gotten around to it, but I am going to soon, I SWEAR!!
