Want It Wednesday

A weekly posting of things I'm wishing for.



Give up the Ghost by Megan Crewe



Release Date: 9/15/09



About the Book: Cass McKenna much prefers ghosts to “breathers.” Ghosts are uncomplicated and dependable. They know the dirt on everybody . . . and Cass loves dirt.

She’s on a mission to expose the dirty secrets of all of the poseurs in her school. But when the vice president of the student council discovers her secret, Cass’s whole scheme hangs in the balance. Timwants her help to contact his recently deceased mother, but Cass is less than enthusiastic.


Kicking and screaming, Cass becomes increasingly entwined in Tim’s life. And she’s more surprised than anyone when she realizes that maybe some living people aren’t so bad if she’d only give them a chance.



GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: I LOVE this cover! I love how the ghost appears behind the girl and how you don't really notice it at first. Not only that, but the book sounds amazing, so I can't wait to read it!



Dust Bookshelves

My husband and I are in need of new bookshelves, so when I saw these on Korianne Speak's blog, I was in love. But for some reason my husband doesn't want to spend $2,000 on a cartoon bookshelf-I don't know why! :) They are super cute, but I'm wondering just how many books they'd actually hold.

  1. This book is on my wishlist. I love how it sounds and the cover is great too though I don't like the girl's expression much.

  2. That book is most definitely on my wishlist as are those bookshelves now. They are awesome, but $2000?! Too rich for my blood.

  3. I can't wait to read this book! I saw those bookshelves too, but I agree with your hubby - way too expensive. I just acquired a small bookshelf from my mum. Nothing like free furniture.

    Give up the Ghost does look great. I love that the ghost isn't really obvious. Very cool.

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There is nothing worse than coming across a book you are really enjoying only to be pulled out of it because of some outdated and incorrect library reference.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
