On My Wishlist: September 17, 2011: 09/17/11

On My WishlistI'm reading two wishlist books right now, Emily the Strange: Stranger and Stranger by Rob Reger and Jessica Gruner and Beachcombing by Maggie Dana. I'm about to start Paranormalcy by Kiersten White. I'm still savoring the newly released Pirate King by Laurie R. King.

My wishlist is at 935 books, up 11 books from last week.

Finished wishlist books:

  • Attention All Shipping by Charlie Connelly
  • Dandelion Fire by N. D. Wilson
  • A Long Long Sleep by Anna Sheehan
  • The Xenophobe's Guide to California by Anthony Marais

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

  • The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff
  • No and Me by Delphine de Vigan
  • Schenectady by Don Rittner
  • The Wolves of Willoughby Chase by Joan Aiken
  • The Farming of Bones by Edwidge Danticat
  • Sarah Court by Craig Davidson
  • The Talented Clementine by Sara Pennypacker

The Featured Wish for September 17, 2010:

cover artFour Valentines in a Rainstorm by Felicia Bond

"One day it rains hearts, and Cornelia Augusta catches them. Each heart is special in its own way, and Cornelia Augusta knows exactly who to send them to. "

I'm interning at the Paul J. Cushing Library at Holy Names University. My job is to catalog their K-12 book collection. I don't have time to read the books I'm cataloging but this one caught my eye as I was working on it. It seems like a book my daughter would enjoy. What I might do is have my husband check out the copy I cataloged since he's a math professor there.

Thank you. I will get them reviewed as I read them.

I've always wondered what the Emily Strange books were like. The Replacement is definitely on my wishlist too.



Comment #4: Saturday, September 17, 2011 at 21:17:22

Pussreboots

The Emily the Strange books are hybrid fiction / graphic novels for a YA audience. They're basically illustrated YA books with a delightful Gothic sense of humor.

Maria Behar

This does sound like a nice book for a youngster who likes to read! Hope you can get it for your daughter soon!

As for the books you've read and are planning to read, I'm not familiar with any of them, I must confess. But a little "Goodreadin'" oughta fix that!

Thanks for sharing! : )

Pussreboots

Getting it won't be a problem. The local library has a copy and there's also the library I'm interning at.

Amy

Aw I like children's books, they're always so sweet. Thanks for stopping by my blog!



Comment #8: Saturday, September 17, 2011 at 21:21:21

Pussreboots

You're welcome. I'll get it reviewed once I get it read.

April

That looks like a cute book. Hope you get to read it soon!



Comment #10: Saturday, September 17, 2011 at 21:22:23

Pussreboots

I will. I have it on hold.



Comment #11: Saturday, September, 17, 2011 at 21:58:57

Melissa (Books and things)

Hope your daughter enjoys the book!



Comment #12: Saturday, September 17, 2011 at 21:23:15

Pussreboots

I think she will. It's like other books she's enjoyed.

Kero

Aw, really cute. Reminds me of "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs." Thanks for stopping by my blog.



Comment #14: Saturday, September 17, 2011 at 21:23:15

Pussreboots

On the surface maybe... with strange things falling from the sky but I think it will read as a very different book.



Comment #15: Sunday, September, 18, 2011 at 01:40:35

Darcus

Sound interesting! Thanks for sharing!



Comment #16: Monday, September 19, 2011 at 13:34:14

Pussreboots

The little bit of it I saw while I was cataloging sure looked good.



Comment #17: Sunday, September, 18, 2011 at 08:34:25

Jennifer (An Abundance of Book

I hope you read and review this one, I'm always on the lookout for a good Valentines Day books for our elementary school library.



Comment #18: Monday, September 19, 2011 at 13:36:23

Pussreboots

I will but it will be a while.



Comment #19: Sunday, September, 18, 2011 at 14:08:04

Erika

Aww...this sounds so sweet. I have actually started reading children's books to myself and daughter. There are so many at the library I thought it would be nice to narrow it down to the good ones for when she's older. I've added some of them to my own wishlist already. I'm making my way mostly through the Caldecott's first and some others that look good.

Anyways, here's my wishlist post for the week. I have changed the way I am doing the post so there is much more to look at this time!



Comment #20: Monday, September 19, 2011 at 13:37:40

Pussreboots

The Caldecotts are good place to start. There are other children's books awards too like the Horn Books award, the Loretta Scott King awards, the Cybils as well as state run awards. Also pay attention to your daughter's interests for ideas on what to read.
