Happy New Year!
Real life is conspiring to keep me away from blogging – but I’ve been reading lots of great books and hope to be back to share them with you soon.
One of my New Year’s traditions now is going to see the lists of Cybils finalists. Go take a look if you missed them last week! This year did not disappoint. Besides catching up with reviews, I need to go through and put holds on all the great-sounding finalists I haven’t read yet. I had two checked out already – YA Spec Fic Finalist Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff and The Evil Wizard Smallbone by Delia Sherman. Illuminae is now finished and it looks like I’m going to have to buy my own copy for my son to read, as he’s excited about it but wouldn’t be able to get through a library copy before it came due.
Here are the books my Audiobooks committee chose:
- Out of Abaton, Book 1: The Wooden Prince by John Claude Bemis
- Raymie Nightingale by Kate DiCamillo
- The Best Man by Richard Peck
- The Inquisitor’s Tale: Or, the Three Magical Children and Their Holy Dog by Adam Gidwitz
- When the Sea Turned to Silver by Grace Lin
I’ll be busy looking up the rest of the books now!
The Second book in the Illuminae series looks good too!
It so does! I had that pinned on my want-to-read board before this one was on my radar!
