Waiting on Wednesday
I'm a day late, but I feel the urge to play along with the meme that asks, What forth-coming book are you eagerly awaiting?
I did some book ordering today, and Cinder, by Marissa Meyer sounded swell to me, and had good reviews already in place in our book dealer's database. Our Teen Advisory Board kids get a chance to read 2 - 3 publisher blurbs and "vote" on books they'd like to see in the library. Maybe one kid (out of 6 in attendance) marked this title. But my gut reaction is to agree with Abby the Librarian who sums up the appeal this way, "What if Cinderella was a cyborg? (I mean, seriously, if that question doesn't intrigue you, I don't think we can be friends.)" So, I've ordered one for my library.
