Hey from Erin Downing -
Sorry I missed this post - as you can see, I've given up my LJ account...
Can't wait to hear what you think about Prom Crashers - I personally think you'll like it more than Dancing Queen. PS: You are so sweet to have commented on the PW story about prom books to give me a shout out! Little Willow, always watching my back.

Hey Erin! You are welcome. Thanks for the kind comments. Are you looking over my shoulder? I was moments away from drafting something for your contest!

Re: thanx

You are welcome, Alex! The S&S website showed me a different title, so please tell me if Snowbound and Oblivion Road are two different books, or if one was renamed. I don't want to get folks confused here or here. :)

Re: Book-tastic

You are welcome! So nice to meet you. I had Back Talk on my Flux post but somehow it didn't merge fully with this list, so I'll fix that now.

I've added you to my friends list as well. :)

You are welcome! Thanks for dropping by.

Last week, when I asked a teenage customer what she thought of a book she had just read, her immediate response was, "Well, it's no Holly Black." What a compliment to you (though I'm obviously _not_ saying what the book was so _that_ person isn't offended!)

Enjoy the list.

Just a quick note before I jet off to class. Lisa McMann told me that they're pushing FADE into Spring 2009 instead of keeping the Fall 2008 date.

Great list though!!

Hi there

I'm new to livejournal and a brand new YA novelist, and I just discovered your very interesting site! My husband is German and Bildungsroman (a word I've never heard before until I visited your site) must have a German root, I imagine...

Re: Hi there

Welcome! Nice to meet you.

Yes, indeed, it does.

Thanks for the kind words! I tend to read a book a day. I post my favorites every month, then do a year round-up, the best of the best.
