Wow, there are a lot of books coming out. And I'm sure there are a ton more that you didn't even mention. Thanks for listing my BAND books. I also have Stuck in the '70s (humorous YA from Putnam) coming out in May.

Thanks!! I didn't know the release date for '70s. Adding it now.

Forever in Blue was so good! I snagged an advance of it and read it in like October/Noveber. Make sure you share your thoughts on that/the series with me, kay?

I shall. I'm interested in seeing how it all wraps up. Have you read Bass Ackwards and Belly Up yet?

I am going to go dance around the kitchen now.

Yours was one of the titles that little addendum was describing, yes! I can't wait to see/read the finished product. I already know the first person I'm going to give it to, BTW. And, of course, it's already listed on my MTV list:

I think you'd enjoy THE CELEBUTANTES: ON THE AVENUE by Antonio Pagliarulo. It's a cute murder mystery, set against the backdrop of wealthy NYC.

Posted by: Little Willow (slayground)

Oh, thank you! For some reason, I had that on my backlist under May 2006 instead of 2007.

So many books...

I read Better Than Yesterday recently - I think you will like it, but also find it a tad on the risque side. *g*

I'm really looking forward to Brent Hartinger's Split Screen this year. Did you read his last one about Russel? (I think I remember you having read the first book...)

Posted by: Little Willow (slayground)
Posted at: January 21st, 2007 08:57 pm (UTC)

You beat me to BTY! ;-)

This morning's read was The Book of One Hundred Truths by Julie Schumacher. This is her third book for kids. I've liked them all.

I have read The Geography Club, The Last Chance Texaco, and Grand & Humble. I have yet to read The Order of the Poison Oak or Split Screen. I really like the sound of Dreamquest.

Books about faeries/faerie are my absolute favorite and I spotted 2 that I didn't even know about - The Faerie Path and Wicked Lovely! (I had already known about Ironside). Thanks for posting! Where do you find out what books are coming out so far in advance?
Off to check out the rest of them.

Make sure to read Straight on 'til Morning by Christopher Golden for a new spin on Peter, Wendy, the Lost Boys, and even Tink . . .
http://www.christophergolden.com/morning.html

I hear about forthcoming titles any number of ways: I do research online, looking up books by keywords at publishers' websites and at Amazon. (Though I rarely buy things from Amazon, preferring to work at and purchase items from independent bookstores, I like the easy accessibility that Amazon provides for keywords and such.) Authors and publishers list their future works at their websites. Friends recommend titles to me. Etcetera.

I heard of The Faerie Path at the HarperCollins website. The cover caught my eye immediately:

Hi Judy! Nice to meet you. I'll update your book's listing. Thanks!

If you're still adding, Neil Gaiman (Cue Choir of Angelic Singing HERE) has a short fic collection, M if for Magic, coming out May/June. I've just finished the ARC & there's some lovely pieces in it, including a short bit of his forthcoming tale of Bod who lives in a graveyard, raised by the dead. Gorgeous stuff happens, as always, when he writes . . .

M.

PS Thanks for putting Wicked Lovely on your list . . .

Posted by: Little Willow (slayground)
Posted at: January 22nd, 2007 08:33 pm (UTC)

I adore Gaiman. I've read all of his long fiction and his juvenile works, but only some of his short fiction and none of the comics (I KNOW! SHAME!), and only one collaboration (Good Omens with Prachett). My favorite of his adult novels is Stardust; for kids, Coraline.

Now comes the part of the day where I tell you to read Christopher Golden's fiction. If you like Gaiman, you will LOVE Golden. There's the horror/fantasy in STRANGEWOOD, the time travel twists in THE BOYS ARE BACK IN TOWN, the dark retelling of Peter Pan in STRAIGHT ON 'TIL MORNING, the shapeshifters of PROWLERS - so many amazing characters and captivating stories. That man knows how to write both heroes and villains.

Of course! Wicked Lovely not only has a - for lack of a better word - kicking title, but the story sounds right up my alley.

Thank you :)

Thank you for putting my book up there on your list too.
ELLIE MCDOODLE is a graphic novel hybrid. Having played with the writing, art and revisions for the past 18 months, I am very excited to watch others finally read it. :)
And I'm amazed at the length of your reading list! Are you a fast reader?

Nice to meet you, Ruth! ELLIE looks adorable.

Yes, I read very quickly. I'm a bookseller with a specialty in children's literature and teen fiction. I read a book a day. You should see my list of backlist titles to read!

You are a doll to include Zibby Payne & The Drama Trauma on your list.

Hi. I hope the cat check up went well. I realize that the above list is YA, but there is a book out this month that you might want to add to your list. I think any thoughtful person (teens included) would love it. Call Me By Your Name by Andre Aciman (FSG, Jan '07) is unbelievably beautiful. It's about an affair between 17 year old Elio and 24 year old Oliver and how this brief, yet intense, passion shadows Elio's whole life. It's about many more things, as well, but mostly it's just full of beauty. Have an interesting day.

Thank you! Holly is doing well. :)

I will have to look that item up!

Yes, this is just a FRACTION of my crazy list. I have an adult fic/lit list, both new and backlist releases, contemporary and classic, plus the picture books I'll check out here and there and the juvenile series I keep track of (hello, Disney Fairies!) because I'm simply that nutty.

Thanks for including me on your awesome list! There's a lot to look forward to this year....

I can't wait to read that new short story collection. I could probably use it in one of my English classes (We've been using Sixteen for a while now. I still love it.)

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

Of course! Your title alone got me. (I'm an order freak.)

Thank YOU for seeing that the winter months had been accidentally deleted the first go 'round.

I recently read the impressive short story "Eve Goes First" by Sarah D. Bunting in the new collection You're the Best! 14 Stories about Friendship selected by Belinda Hollyer. I also read many of the tales in Destination Unexpected, edited by Donald R. Gallo.

You are welcome! When I read your book's summary, I immediately added it to the list, because the stealing of a book and inclusion of a bookstore bring to mind The NeverEnding Story, my favorite fantasy classic.
