On My Wishlist: July 23, 2011: 07/22/11

On My WishlistLike the previous week, I ended up having to send back a book unread — Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See. I'll to read it again when the film is no longer brand new.

This week I finished 100 Cupboards by N. D. Wilson, and The Cloud Searchers by Kazu Kibuishi. I am currently reading Rampant by Diana Peterfreund; it's a lot of fun.

My total wishlist stands at 864 books, an increase of 8 books since last week.

Upcoming wishlist reads include (they are in my hands waiting to be read):

  • The Invisible Bridge by Julie Orringer
  • Eye of the Crow by Shane Peacock
  • The Wide-awake Princess by E.D. Baker
  • Tall Blondes: a Book About Giraffes by Lynn Sherr
  • Roller Skates by Ruth Sawyer
  • Inside Out by Maria V. Snyder
  • Dreaming in Hindi: Coming Awake in Another Language by Katherine Russell Rich
  • Agatha H and the Airship City: a Girl genius novel by Phil & Kaja Foglio
  • The Case of the Bizarre Bouquets by Nancy Springer
  • Bagelmania by Mountain Lion Books
  • The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff

The Featured Wish for July 23, 2010:

cover artThe Last Council (Amulet 4) by Kazu Kibuishi

"Kazu Kibuishi's thrilling ... series continues!

"Emily and her friends think they'll find the help they need in Cielis, but something isn't right. Streets that were once busy are deserted, and the townspeople who are left live in crippling fear. Emily is escorted to the Academy where she's expected to compete for a spot on the Guardian Council, the most powerful Stonekeepers. But as the number of competitors gets smaller and smaller, a terrible secret is slowly uncovered--a secret that, if left buried, means certain destruction of everything Emily fights for."

I was first introduced to the series through the Cybils when the second volume, The Stonekeeper's Curse was up for an award. I went back and read volume 1, The Stonekeeper and just finished The Cloud Searchers. Volume 4 comes out in September and I can't wait!

I want to read Rampant and The Replacement too. The Amulet Series sounds good. Book #4 sounds like a lot of fun!

Rampant is great so far. I can't wait to start The Replacement. The Amulet series so far has been excellent.

I just realised - 864 books...WOW! Do you have a goodreads or library thing to keept track of them? I would love to know where to find you if you do. I'd love to see what else is on your list.

Pussreboots

I got them number off of GoodReads.

The series looks great - really exciting. Do you think it might be too much for a mature 11 year old?



Comment #6: Saturday, July 23, 2011 at 16:23:30

Pussreboots

The series is written for 11 year olds. My 9 year old loves it as much as I do.

Heard great things about The Replacement and Agatha H. Inside Out is pretty high up on my own wishlight. I read Snyder's Study series and adored it, really want to dig into her other books!



Comment #8: Saturday, July 23, 2011 at 16:27:34

Pussreboots

Inside Out will be my first Snyder novel.



Comment #9: Saturday, July, 23, 2011 at 13:55:49

Melissa (Books and things)

Sounds like fun! Hope you get all in this series!

Pussreboots

I've read books one through three. I'll have to wait until September to read book four.

864 books?!!! Oh my gosh, that is an incredible number of books to hanker over. I'll let you get back to your reading now...!

Pussreboots

Thank you... I've finished one book today, although it wasn't officially on my wishlist.

Pussreboots

Yes it is but I am enjoying reading from it.

Sharon Goodwin

Sounds like a fab series. I haven't read a series for a while - prefer to have them all out together and read them together! Otherwise I get distracted.

Thanks for stopping by my wishlist.



Comment #18: Monday, July 25, 2011 at 11:42:00

Pussreboots

Books one through three are out now. But book four won't be out until September. I don't know how long he plans to make the series.
