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.
