Waiting On Wednesday: ALA Edition

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

With ALA coming up, I thought I'd share some of my wish list!

Crave by Laura J. Burns and Melinda Metz-I loved, loved, loved Melinda Metz's books as a teen, so I was thrilled she had a new book coming out! I've only been checking Amazon obsessively for the last ten years!! I have no idea if this book will even be there-I'm just keeping my fingers crossed!

The Ring of Solomon by Jonathan Stroud-the newest Bartimaeus book (no final cover art yet). This is my husband's top pick for ALA. He's not as excited about the conference as I am, although he'll go and help carry my books. So if he could get his hands on this one, it would make the trip worth it!

A lot of my other wist list I've done WOW's on before, so I'm listing the titles mostly so I can remember them all!

Matched by Ally Condie (she's there signing-can't wait)
Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly (finally she writes another YA)
Bright Young Things by Anna Godbersen (I loved The Luxe series, so I'm eager to read this one)
I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore (I'm intrigued by the plot for this one)
Grace by Elizabeth Scott (she's also signing-yay)
Gaurdian of the Gate by Michelle Zink (can't wait to find out what happens in this series!)

If you're going to ALA, what's on your wish list?


  1. Matched and Revolution do sound amazing. I'll be extremely jealous when you get them and yet totally pumped to hear what you think of them.

  2. When I was at BEA they said no full ARCs being printed for Bright Young Things. I was sad. :( Maybe ALA will have the sampler they gave out at BEA.

  3. Wish I was going to ALA also! Have fun and get lots of books!

  4. Ooh, I really want Matched and Bright Young Things. I hope you get them all!

  5. Yup, I was gonna say what Rebecca already said - I asked my contact at Harper about full ARCs of Bright Young Things and she said they're not doing 'em.

    Looks like a great list, though! I'm jealous of your ALA trip! Maybe someday I'll get to go again... Have fun!

  6. Had a chance to read an ARC of I am Number 4. You will not be disappointed! Thanks for the other recs.

  7. I'm really excited for the new Jonathan Stroud, it will be great to visit with Bartimaeus again. Have a great time at ALA :D

  8. I really want to read Matched. Have fun at ALA.

  9. Some of those books are on my wish list. Enjoy ALA.

  10. Some day, I will make it to ALA! Maybe even for midwinter 2011.

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?
