On My Wishlist: September 17, 2011: 09/17/11
I'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.

The Featured Wish for September 17, 2010:
Four Valentines in a Rainstorm by Felicia Bond
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.

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
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.

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! : )

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

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

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
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
Sound interesting! Thanks for sharing!
Comment #16: Monday, September 19, 2011 at 13:34:14
The little bit of it I saw while I was cataloging sure looked good.
Comment #17: Sunday, September, 18, 2011 at 08:34:25
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
I will but it will be a while.

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!

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.
