Want It Wednesday

A list of the things (books and non-books) that I am wanting this week.


Release Date 10/13/09

About the Book: (from Amazon) For Nora Grey, romance was not part of the plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how much her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her. Not until Patch came along.
With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Nora is drawn to him against her better judgment.
But after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora's not sure who to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is, and to know more about her than her closest friends. She can't decide whether she should fall into his arms or run and hide. And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is way more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel.
For Nora is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those that have fallen - and, when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost her life.


GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: The cover is amazing, the plot sounds incredible, and Becca is super nice. I can't wait to read this one!


EmiJay hair ties. (sorry for lack of pics) Curse you I Heart Daily! Every day I find something else I love and must have. But seriously, how cool are these? Two teen girls designed cute affordable hair ties in adorable colors. I wish I would have been that inventive as a teen.

About the Book: (from Audible) For 17-year-old actress Kelley Winslow, faeries are just something from childhood stories. Then she meets Sonny Flannery, whose steel-gray eyes mask an equally steely determination to protect her.

Sonny guards the Samhain Gate, which connects the mortal realm with the Faerie's enchanted, dangerous Otherworld. Usually kept shut by order of icy King Auberon, the Gate stands open but once a year.

This year, as the time approaches when the Samhain Gate will swing wide and nightmarish Fae will fight their way into an unsuspecting human world, something different is happening... something wondrous and strange. And Kelley's eyes are opening not just to the Faerie that surround her but to the heritage that awaits her.

Now Kelley must navigate deadly Faerie treachery, and her growing feelings for Sonny, in this dazzling page-turner filled with luminous romance.
GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: I love audiobooks and I think this one would be great on audio (for some reason I really enjoy fantasy books on audio). Plus, it's read by the author which I think is cool. Check it out on Audible!

  5. Hush, Hush looks like such a graet read! I can't wait till it's released.

    I Heart Daily definitely shows off some really cool stuff. Today, when I opened up their newsletter, it talked about how in Sierra Leone girls could get a scholarship if they stayed virgins. It was a very interesting article.

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
