Great picks. I'm reading The Warrior Heir right now. I had two friends at work recommend it, and I can see why. It's great so The Demon King is definitely going on my wishlist. Have fun at ALA.ReplyDelete
All of those were at BEA! Good luck!ReplyDelete
I'm sure they will be there!ReplyDelete
*crosses fingers* I hope I find some of those as well. :)ReplyDelete
What's Viola in Reel Life about? I tried Amazon but couldn't find a description.ReplyDelete
Viola in Reel Life by Adriana Trigiani (HarperTeen) is the bestselling author's first YA novel, about an aspiring filmmaker stuck at boarding school.
I've had a co-worker recommend Adriana Trigiani's adult books to me and she loves them, so I'm interested to see what her YA title is like.
Wow, these are awesome. I really want Leviathan, Once was Lost, and Lips Touch. Sooooo Sarah....wanna get me a book at ALA? LOL Just kidding. I'm so jealous you get to go though. I was REALLY close to making it up there, but alas...no.ReplyDelete
Oooh...a new Lauren Myracle. Not a fan of hers but it looks cute! And if you see an extra copy of Viola in Reel Life lying around...snag it for me, will ya? I'm desperate to read that one! (:ReplyDelete
I wish you all were going to be there-I'd love to meet you guys!!ReplyDelete
Bookworm-I'll see if I can snatch a copy for you!
Lauren-We'll have to meet up sometime!
GBTQ: FYI, I will be signing The Demon King at the Disney-Hyperion booth on Monday, 1-2 p.m. I imagine the ARC will be available other times as well from the booth....ReplyDelete
