Want It Wednesday #7

I'm picking one book for this week's Want It Wednesday, because I really really want to read it!


Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins is the second book in the Hunger Games Trilogy and it comes out September 8, 2009. I can not wait until September!!! I'm especially excited because I've gotten my co-workers and even my fiance addicted and it's so much fun to talk about with them. I won't post any summaries, because I don't wait to spoil anything for those who haven't read Hunger Games. If you haven't read it, you need to get out and read it!

My other Want It Wednesday isn't a book, but a movie that I'm really hoping and wishing gets made, but from this article, it looks like my wish just might be granted! I got into Veronica Mars after the show was over and all on DVD, but I was addicted and it was one show that every episode left me wanting more-and several times gasping because the twists and mysterys were just so good! A Veronica Mars movie would be one of the greatest things ever. I had to add it my Want It Wednesday list because I always love sharing good news!:)

  2. Cecilia-
    I KNOW! A Veronica Mars movie would just make my year! I miss that show so much I need to see it in movie form soon. And now Kristen Bell is free from Heroes, so she could film it. I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

Dear Books: Please Update Your Libraries

There is nothing worse than coming across a book you are really enjoying only to be pulled out of it because of some outdated and incorrect library reference. I know that authors and illustrators will not always get everything 100% accurate, but I when I read books that show a very dated stereotype, or something that is just so incorrect, I always wonder why. I feel like authors and illustrators should know better! And it's not just older books-it happens in new books too! I recently read A Big Surprise for Little Card by Charise Mericle Harper and illustrated by Anna Raff.  I absolutely loved this book! It's a creative look at libraries through the eyes of a library card. It's perfect for my outreach visits and storytimes about the library and promoting what value there is in a library card. Anna Raff gets major points for illustrating a very cool and hip librarian as well! But the librarian tells card to shush and is a bit annoyed when he shows up. And then l
