For now, though, I'm enjoying the ride.
Here are the Harper books I have loved (and I'm soooo sorry about the pub dates!):
- The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place by Maryrose Wood (2.10)
- Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver (3.10) - I was not prepared for how compelling this would be. I'm still thinking about it days after I finished it.
- Splendor (final book in The Luxe series) by Anna Godbersen (10.09)
Here are the non-Harper books I have equally loved:
- Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (Scholastic) - Finally read it! And it was so worth the wait. Incredible, incredible stuff.
- Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins (9.09, Scholastic) - Equally as incredible
- Liar by Justine Larbalestier (9.09, Bloomsbury) - The jacket controversy seems to have overshadowed the fact that this is a well-crafted, fascinating suspense thriller. Read it.
- The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate by Jacqueline Kelly (Holt) - How can this NOT have something shiny on it come January?
- Dunderheads by Paul Fleischman, illustrated by David Roberts (Candlewick)
Great summer for reading! Now, all I need to do is get my hands on Dani Noir by Nova Ren Suma (per Molly's recommendation) and Winter's End by Jean-Claude Mourlevat, translated by Anthea Bell (per Chris Shoemaker's recommendation) and my August will ROCK!
I LOVED Calpurnia Tate... she's the kind of girl I want to be friends with. And of course the Texan half of my soul believes that a lot of her spunk comes from the Lone Star State itself!
Oh good, your suggestions never let me down! I'll request the lot from my library.
I will have to come clean with my friend, however, who is giving me all the credit for the great YA books that I have been suggesting to her. Viva Pinot y Prose!
Hey, Lisa! Did you know that I now work at the same publishing house that publishes Melissa Marr? I know you're probably up-to-date on her series - what have you moved on to now?
Heather, one of my favorite aspects of Calpurnia Tate is the sense of place. Texas was its own character!
Iris loves The Dunderheads (picked it out herself at the bookstore). I'm pleased to hear about the new Maryrose Wood novel, as I really liked My Life: the Musical.
Now it's my turn to be jealous. Splendor? Can't wait!
Yes, up-to-date on the Melissa Marr series, but plan to start The Lux series while camping this weekend!
