Ooh, yay. Thanks so much for posting this list. I have a lot of these books on my list, but I'm always willing to add more.

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?

Oh yay!!!!!

Thanks for putting me on your list. I hope Tips doesn't disappoint you.

I am going to go dance around the kitchen now.

:) Happy to be the cause of the dance. The kitchen is a great place for that, is it not? I have a dance room instead of a living room!

Are you not counting Accent since you already got to read it? *g*

happy

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:

Such a cool list. It's an honor to have The Penguins of Doom listed in such great company!

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?

Re: Thank you :)

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!
