Comments for On My Wishlist: September 24, 2011

On My Wishlist: September 24, 2011: 09/24/11

On My WishlistI finished Beachcombing by Maggie Dana last night and now I want to get started on The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff. I'm still savoring the newly released Pirate King by Laurie R. King. I've also re-started The Mermaid's Mirror by L. K. Madigan; it's been so popular at the library that I keep having to return it before I can finish it.

My wishlist is at 938 books, up 3 books from last week.

Finished wishlist books:

  • Beachcombing by Maggie Dana
  • Emily the Strange: Stranger and Stranger by Rob Reger
  • Four Valentines in a Rainstorm by Felicia Bond
  • Paranormalcy by Kiersten White
  • Restoring Harmony by Joëlle Anthony

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
  • Flood and Fire by Emily Diamand
  • The Book of Tomorrow by Cecilia Ahern
  • Elsie's Bird by Jane Yolen

The Featured Wish for September 24, 2010:

cover artNavajos Wear Nikes: A Reservation Life by Jim Kristofic

"Just before starting second grade, Jim Kristofic moved from Pittsburgh across the country to Ganado, Arizona, when his mother took a job at a hospital on the Navajo Reservation. Navajos Wear Nikes reveals the complexity of modern life on the Navajo Reservation, a world where Anglo and Navajo coexisted in a tenuous truce. After the births of his Navajo half-siblings, Jim and his family moved off the Reservation to an Arizona border town where they struggled to readapt to an Anglo world that no longer felt like home.

With tales of gangs and skinwalkers, an Indian Boy Scout troop, a fanatical Sunday school teacher, and the author's own experience of sincere friendships that lead to házhó (beautiful harmony), Kristofic's memoir is an honest portrait of growing up on — and growing to love —the Reservation."

The Castro Valley high school library has a wishlist of books. NavaJos Wear Nikes is on the list. It sounds like a fascinating book so I've added it to my list too.

The Replacement is sitting right next to me waiting for me to finish my assigned reading for the weekened.

Melissa (Books and Things)

This does sound like a great book and a good addition to the HS library!

Pussreboots

I think so. I might get two copies: one for me and one for the high school but I need to read up on how to make donations to them.

Book Reviews From The Basement

Hi! Seems to be a interesting book:)

And thanks for commenting on my list. Do you remember the title of the japanese ghost stories collection you read?



Comment #6: Saturday, September 24, 2011 at 17:42:51

Pussreboots

The book of Japanese / Hawaiian ghost stories is called Obake: Ghost Stories in Hawaii by Glen Grant.

I loved The Replacement! I have Paranormalcy in my TBR tower.

Pussreboots

Paranormalcy was excellent. I will be starting The Replacement this week. I just have a paper to write and then I can get started on it.

Erika

This sounds like a very heavy, very thought provoking (especially for the age group) book.

Here are my wishes for the week. PS. Thank you for the advice last week on looking at children's books at the library. I had no idea there were so many different awards!

Pussreboots

I first started reading about the Navajo my freshman year of college. That's only one year removed from high school. I think it would be a good addition to their library.

This sounds like a beautiful book to have on your wishlist. Interesting to get another culture's point of view.

Thanks for commenting on Jera's Jamboree

When I find a copy and get it read, I'll post a review.
