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.

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There is nothing worse than coming across a book you are really enjoying only to be pulled out of it because of some outdated and incorrect library reference.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