I’m going to talk right now about some books that look really great. I have not read them, and I do not own them, but I certainly covet them! Perhaps you will find some titles to add to your own wishlist. You can find more books I think look great at my wishlist on Shelfari. Anyway, here are eleven of my current most-coveted books. I hope to inspire more book coveting.

1) Queste by Angie Sage. This is the most recent book in the Septimus Heap series. I find all of these books to be highly entertaining and wonderful. If you have not read this series yet and you enjoy MG Fantasy, I highly recommend it!

2) Ivy by Julie Hearn. This is the book summary on Amazon, which I find very intriguing:

Ivy is used to being overlooked. The youngest in a family of thieves, scoundrels, and roustabouts, the girl with the flame-colored hair and odd-colored eyes is declared useless by her father from the day she is born. But that’s only if you look at her but don’t see. For Ivy has a quality that makes people take notice. It’s more than beauty — and it draws people toward her.

Which makes her the perfect subject for an aspiring painter named Oscar Aretino Frosdick, a member of the pre-Raphaelite school of artists. Oscar is determined to make his mark on the art world, with Ivy as his model and muse. But behind Ivy’s angelic looks lurk dark secrets and a troubled past — a past that has given her an unfortunate taste for laudanum. And when treachery and jealousy surface in the Eden that is the artist’s garden, Ivy must learn to be more than a pretty face if she is to survive.

Julie Hearn, author of The Minister’s Daughter and The Sign of the Raven, has created a memorable tale of nineteenth-century England with a character destined to take her place alongside Dickens’s Pip and Oliver Twist.

Don’t you wish you had this book? I do.

3) A Room on Lorelai Street by Mary E. Pearson. I loved Mary’s book The Adoration of Jenna Fox, and it really made me want to read her earlier books. I’ve also had this book recommended to me several times.

4) Ysabel by Guy Gavriel Kay. I have heard nothing but good things about this book! Apparently it’s published as adult but would have some YA interest, too. I’m not entirely sure what it’s about, but it sounds intriguing.

5) the dead and the gone by Susan Beth Pfeffer. I adored Life As We Knew It, and this book takes place in the same world, one where life has been seriously altered because of an asteroid hitting the moon. This book also takes place in New York City, which is pretty great. I can’t wait to read it!

6) Madapple by Christina Meldrum. I’m not entirely sure what this book is about, either, but I’ve heard lots of great things here, too. Intriguing cover art, isn’t it?

7) Hell Week by Rosemary Clement-Moore. Maggie Quinn, journalist and evil-fighter, is back, and I can’t wait to read the latest installment in this series!

8) The Host by Stephenie Meyer. A very different-sounding book from Twilight, but I trust Stephenie Meyer to write a fantastic book, and the premise of this one sounds very interesting!

9) Out of the Wild by Sarah Beth Durst. I loved Into The Wild, and I can’t wait to read more of Julie’s adventures in this delightful and fairy-tale-centric series.

10) Moby Clique by Cara Lockwood. This is another series where literary figures and real life collide, and I can’t wait to read this latest installment.

11) Two Girls of Gettysburg by Lisa Klein. I have not got the faintest idea what this book is about. There is no summary on Amazon. But Lisa Klein wrote it, and therefore, it must be brilliant! Too bad it’s not out until September.


Here’s the full list of winners of the 2007 Cybils awards:

Fantasy/Sci Fi: The True Meaning of Smekday by Adam Rex (MG) and Book of a Thousand Days by Shannon Hale (YA)

Fiction Picture Book: The Chicken-Chasing Queen of Lamar County by Janice N. Harrington

Graphic Novel: Artemis Fowl: The Graphic Novel by Eoin Colfer and Andrew Donkin (MG) and The Professor’s Daughter by Joann Sfar (YA)

Middle Grade Fiction: A Crooked Kind Of Perfect by Linda Urban

Non-Fiction: Tasting The Sky: A Palestinian Childhood by Ibtisam Barakat (MG/YA)  and Lightship by Brian Floca (Picture Book)

Poetry: This is Just to Say: Poems of Apology and Forgiveness by Joyce Sidman

Young Adult Fiction: Boy Toy by Barry Lyga

I’ve not read all of those (and will never read the picture books or probably the graphic novels), but those I have read–A Crooked Kind of Perfect, Book of a Thousand Days, and Boy Toy–are great.

A Crooked Kind of Perfect wasn’t my favorite of the MG books (my favorite didn’t make the shortlist), but it totally deserved to win. It’s a fantastic book that will appeal to lots of different people, and, of course, appealing to the target audience is very important (and a big reason that my favorite wasn’t on the shortlist!), so I’m quite happy with this outcome. Big congratulations to Linda Urban!

Book of a Thousand Days is wonderful as well, and I do think it deserves to win. I was a little more iffy on this one, though–while I loved it, it wasn’t totally mind-blowing, just awesome. But maybe that’ just me, and, honestly, nothing that deserved the award more is coming to mind.

Boy Toy is really amazing, and I’m neither surprised nor disappointed with its winning the award.  It certainly did stand out among 2007 YA books, and although there are a few others that resonated more with me personally, I still thought this book was marvelous.

Okay, just for fun, I thought I’d share a little about a few upcoming books I’d like to read. I’d also like to know what you’re looking forward to, so I don’t miss anything!

First of all, is I Wanna Be Your Joey Ramone by Stephanie Kuehnert. See the awesome cover! You can read more about the book at  Here’s the summary from the website:

“A raw, edgy, emotional novel about growing up punk and living to tell.

The Clash. Social Distortion. Dead Kennedys. Patti Smith. The Ramones. Punk rock is in Emily Black’s blood. Her mother, Louisa, hit the road to follow the incendiary music scene when Emily was four months old and never came back.

Now Emily’s all grown up with a punk band of her own, determined to find the tune that will bring her mother home. Because if Louisa really is following the music, shouldn’t it lead her right back to Emily?”

I Wanna Be Your Joey Ramone

Another book I’m really looking forward to (and another MTV book) is What Happens Here by Tara Altebrando. I loved her first book, The Pursuit of Happiness, and I can’t wait to read this one! It has one of my favorite things, travel! Plus romance! And Las Vegas! Where I’ve never been, but it sounds exciting. Here’s the summary:

“When Chloe’s parents decide to take her to Europe the summer before senior year of high school, she’s ecstatic… she only wishes her best friend, Lindsay, could come too. Living in Las Vegas, they have long imagined the world through casinos inspired by great cities and have vowed to travel the globe together someday. Unfortunately, Lindsay’s parents won’t agree to send her along.

So Chloe goes to Europe and sends postcards to Lindsay every day. But when she comes home, she must cope with shocking news that rips her family—and Lindsay’s—apart. And as she tries to uncover the truth about what happened, Chloe soon begins to feel that Lindsay’s brother, Noah, is the one person alive for whom she’d go to the ends of the earth…

From the acclaimed author of The Pursuit of Happiness this is a stunning new novel of friendship, love, and loss set against the dazzling dual backdrops of Europe and Las Vegas. “

I have to mention Stephenie Meyer, too. She has two books coming out in 2008. The first will be The Host, which Stephenie describes as a love triangle involving only two bodies. The second is Breaking Dawn, the latest in the Twilight Saga, which I love! I can’t wait to find out what happens to the characters.

I only read 15 books in January 2008, sadly. You can check out the full list on my Books Read in 2008 page.  I really enjoyed a lot of the books I read, though, so it was a good reading month in that way!

Two were nonfiction: Thura’s Diary, the diary of a girl living in wartime Iraq, and First Kiss, a collection of true first-kiss stories from YA authors.  Thirteen were fiction. Two of those were read for school assignments (Huck Finn and Catcher in the Rye). One was a verse novel (I Heart You, You Haunt Me). One was a short story collection (How They Met). If you want to read the reviews, just search for the book title in the search box at the top of the sidebar.

My favorite books that I read in January were Suite Scarlett by Maureen Johnson, How They Met, And Other Stories by David Levithan, The Opposite of Invisible by Liz Gallagher, Wicked Lovely and Ink Exchange by Melissa Marr, and The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson.

The only books, however, that I disliked were The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and Catcher in the Rye–the ones I read for school. The rest were all at least worth reading!

Yet another YALSA list! This one is Quick Picks for Reluctant Readers 2008. As before, those underlined are those I will probably read soon, and those in bold are the ones I’ve read already. Again, I draw the conclusion that as a reader of YA books, I suck. I should read more.

Here’s another YALSA list. As before, I’ve read those in bold, and will probably read the underlined books soon (meaning, mostly, that I own them or I’ve seen them at the library or know someone who owns them or something). Of course, ‘soon’ is relative…Anyway, conclusions that I draw from this are that I’ve basically failed as a reader of young adult literature. Those I’m going to read, well, there are a lot more of those than those I have read.

This is another YALSA list. Borrowing the idea from Little Willow, I’ve pasted the list below, with the ones I’ve read in bold, and the ones I plan to read in the near (or near-ish…) future underlined. The lists are divided by category. Conclusions I draw from this? I love urban fantasy, and am not usually into sports stories. What about you all? Oh, and does anyone know how to do some sort of “behind the cut” thing in wordpress?
