Want It Wednesday #8



Release Date: 7/21/09
About the Book: (From Amazon): When Katrina spots a homeless guy sleeping in the alley behind her grandmother’s coffee shop, she decides to leave him a cup of coffee, a bag of chocolate-covered coffee beans, and some pastries to tide him over. Little does she know that this random act of kindness is about to turn her life upside down. Because this adorable vagrant, Malcolm, is really a guardian angel on a break between missions. And he won’t leave until he can reward Katrina’s selflessness by fulfilling her deepest desire. Now if only she could decide what that might be . . .

GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: I love romances, and this one has such a great twist, I can't wait to read it! Plus, so many of my teens have raved about Saving Juliet that I'm sure this one will be another hit with my readers.



Release Date: 4/15/09
About the Book: (From Amazon:) Cora Bradley dreams of escape. Ever since her reckless older brother, Nate, died in a car crash, Cora has felt suffocated by her small town and high school. She seeks solace in drawing beautiful maps, envisioning herself in exotic locales. When Cora begins to fall for Damian, the handsome, brooding boy who was in the car with Nate the night he died, she uncovers her brother's secret artistic life and realizes she had more in common with him than she ever imagined. This is the tale of one girl's journey through the redemptive powers of art, friendship, and love.
GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: I'm a big fan of Ms. Sandell, so I can't wait for this one to release! I fell in love with her writing in Song of the Sparrow, and even though this one isn't writin in verse, I'm sure her beautiful writing style will be there!

Release Date: 5/26/09

About the Book: Well, I couldn't find much about the book, except this short blurb from the author's website: "You know, I always thought I told you everything, but there are some things I should have said but never did. I should have told you about the time I lost your new sunglasses. I know you really liked them. I should have apologized the time I ruined your brand-new skirt, the one with the beading. I should have apologized for a lot of stuff.
I’m sorry. I’m sorry for everything."
GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: An amazing cover and it's by Elizabeth Scott! What else do I need to say?? Plus, it comes out the day after birthday, so it's like a beautiful birthday present to me!

  13. Coffeehouse Angel sounds great! Is it just me or are there more and more angel books being published in YA paranormal books?

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
