Want It Wednesday: Tenner Feature

Since I was able to pick up a ton of 2009 releases at ALA, I feel silly posting a Want It Wednesday post on a book I already have. This past week I've been tracking down The Tenners on Facebook/Twitter/Blogs so I can start my wish list. So since I'm thinking ahead to 2010, here are my Tenner picks for this week:


The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting

Release Date: 3/16/10

About the Book: A serial killer on the loose. A girl with a morbid ability. And the boy who would never let anything happen to her.

GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: I've been following Kimberly's blog for awhile and with every post I'm getting more and more excited about this book. Violet, the main character, can sense dead bodies, which just sounds like a great twist on a murder mystery. It has mystery, suspense, romance-everything I love! And the cover is beautiful.
Release Date: 4/20/10
About the Book: A fourteen-year-old girl with magical powers finds adventure and romance in Regency England.
GreenBeanTeenQueen: Again, another book with everything I love! I love magic and the regency era combined, and of course throw in some romance and I'll be sure to pick that book up! I already know what teens at my library I'll be giving this one to.

  1. A Most Improper Magick sounds really good and it has the kind of title I love like Sorcery and Cecelia.

  2. Oh my goodness, I didn't realize that Magick wasn't going to come out until next April. I don't think I can wait that long! I also thought of Sorcery & Cecelia when I learned about it.

Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell

Rating: 5/5 Stars Genre: Realistic Fiction Release Date: 2/26/2013 Add to Goodreads About the Book: Eleanor and Park are both misfits. When new girl Eleanor sits next to Park on the bus, they don't want anything to do with each other. But over the course of the school year, things change. It starts with comic books and becomes a friendship and a romance that the two will never forget. You never forget your first love. GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: Have you ever had a book sit on your shelf that you've heard so much hype about? And you think that books sounds like it would be right up your alley, but you're in a reading slump and you're afraid to give it a try unless it fails? I knew Eleanor and Park sounded like my perfect book, but I was in such an after committee slump that I even though I knew this book would help, I just didn't want to be disappointed. I should have known better because Eleanor and Park was perfect and everything that I had hoped it wou

Post Downton Abbey Reading List

Downton Abbey is over (with a shocking and frustrating ending!) and now I'm suffering Downton Abbey withdrawal. I've got a reading list full of books that I hope will satisfy my post-Downton Abbey cravings and I thought I'd share what's in my pile and get suggestions for other after Downton reads. Here's what I hope to be reading this year (a mix of YA and adult titles):                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  A couple Julian Fellowes reads:                And a few re-reads:                    Edited to add: What's on your Post-Downton Abbey reading list?
