Waiting on Wendnesday is hosted byJill over at Breaking The Spine and is a weekly event all about upcoming releases we can't wait to get into!
I've got two books this week. One that I have a feeling will be VERY popular and the other for the young ones in your family.
Sorry I've not been posting much lately; I'm not very well...again!
Nightshade by Andrea Cremer has caught my eye. The cover does two things: 1) it hones an unsuspecting reader in and 2) the title carries it's own level of intrigue. I am both a totally honed in unsuspecting reader with a high level of intrigue.
Release Date: October 2010
While other teenage girls daydream about boys, Calla Tor imagines ripping out her enemies’ throats. And she wouldn’t have it any other way. Calla was born a warrior and on her eighteenth-birthday she’ll become the alpha female of the next generation of Guardian wolves. But Calla’s predestined path veers off course the moment she saves the life of a wayward hiker, a boy her own age. This human boy’s secret will turn the young pack's world upside down and forever alter the outcome of the centuries-old Witches' War that surrounds them all.
Sounds like one for film adaptation!
One for the Kids
T is for Tokyo by Irene Aiko is a. I lurve all things Japanese and am looking forward to reading this to the little ones in my family.
Release Date: June 2010
As a father tells his daughter about her birthplace, he describes Tokyo in language as colorful as the glowing watercolors that showcase this vibrant city. His story is both tender and descriptive, complemented by full- and double-paged illustrations. From making wishes with daruma dolls and flying kites shaped like caterpillars to discovering the two-toed shoes of construction workers and nibbling on roasted chestnuts, Tokyo springs to life in a way guaranteed to enchant young readers—and their parents. Bilingual text enhances this cultural immersion for language learners of all ages.
That's it from me!
