I can’t wait to read…

Here are some of the books in my to-be-read pile on the coffee table:

Keturah and Lord Death by Martine Leavitt

This looks like a great read-in-one-sitting, totally engrossing book.

The White Darkness by Geraldine McCaughrean

I picked this one up at my favorite used bookstore, The Barrow Bookstore (see link at right) – they are fabulous because they have so many brand-new, recently published books for sale.

The Dragon of Never-Was by Ann Downer

This is for next week’s fourth grade book group.

Ghosthunters and the Incredibly Revolting Ghost by Cornelia Funke

Patrons have been raving about this series of books by the author of The Thief Lord.  Many patrons have commented that they especially love the book on CD versions, because the reader is so good.

Dreadful Sorry by Kathryn Reiss

I loved Blackthorn Winter, which we read for the last teen book group, and can’t wait to devour this thriller by the same author.

What’s in your to-be-read pile?  I’d love to hear what is tempting you!

    Right now I am half way done am “Skullduggery Pleasant” by Derek Landy, an Irish author. Skullduggery is a detective who does not let the fact that he is dead and a skeleton slow him down. Stephanie Edgley is an intelligent, fearless 12 year-old. When she inherits her Uncle Gordon’s house after his death, all manner of strange things happen. Skullduggery and Stephanie make an interesting team with dialogue that is witty and sarcastic. Your more mature elementary students and middle schoolers should enjoy this one. If the ending holds to the promise of the beginning this should be a good recommedation for those waiting for Harry Potter to arrive. The book comes out in May from Harpercollins.
