1. TURNING PAGES: The Planet Thieves, by Dan Krokos

This book is allegedly for MG. Well, my inner fifth grader is all kinds of happy right now, then. And my inner sophomore. And my Alleged Adultness. This is a Cybil potential, all right, straight up. It has heart-pounding adventure, right out of the... Read the rest of this post

2. TURNING PAGES: Moses, Me & Murder: A Barkerville Mystery, by Ann Walsh

In the world of judging a book by its cover, I'll admit, I caved. I was interested in this novel solely because of its cover, and because it was put out by a Canadian press. I find that I enjoy historical fiction from Canada, because it's generally... Read the rest of this post

3. TURNING PAGES: Guys Against the Girls, by Lauren Baratz-Logsted

Once we started talking about authors who straddle the line between traditional publishing and ebooks, they seemed to be all over the place! Lauren Baratz-Logsted, author of twenty-three books published through traditional publishers, has now put... Read the rest of this post

4. Monday Review: GEEKS, GIRLS AND SECRET IDENTITIES by Mike Jung

Reader Gut Reaction: I've been meaning to read Geeks, Girls and Secret Identities for quite a while, because the author, Mike Jung, is an online buddy and avid blogger, and he's also local to the Northern California area and this is his debut. After... Read the rest of this post

5. TURNING PAGES: THE RUNAWAY KING, by Jennifer A. Nielsen

Well, you know what they say about middle books.No? You don't? Well, "they" usually say that in any trilogy, the middle book is awful - that it doesn't give you any new information, and that it doesn't do anything but take up space. Sometimes this... Read the rest of this post

6. Turning Pages: Saving The Planet & Stuff, by Gail Gauthier

It was amusingly ridiculous, the trouble it took to get a copy of this book. First, I thought I'd already reviewed it, years ago. Turns out I'd reviewed another of the author's novels (and hadn't even labeled that one properly, so almost didn't find... Read the rest of this post

7. Turning Pager: HAMMER OF WITCHES, by Shana Mlawski

ALL RIGHT. I know I say this every time, but I ♥ Tu Books. It's just the kind of publishing company so many people were waiting for - because where else can you tell your crazy YA tales of monsters, the Malleus Maleficarum - the Spanish... Read the rest of this post

8. Turning Pages: GHOST HAND, by Ripley Patton *(Book One of the PSS Chronicles)

The adventures I have, when I randomly buy, pick up, or otherwise gank books! Once again, I am SUPER EXCITED because I've found another Cybils contender so early in the year. I'm a Luddite at heart, and I have had access to ereaders for years, but... Read the rest of this post

9. Monday PREview: NOTHING CAN POSSIBLY GO WRONG, by Prudence Shen and Faith Erin Hicks

Reader Gut Reaction: When the cheerleaders and the geeks team up to try to solve a school group funding problem together, WHAT could possibly go wrong? That fabulous title ends up proving itself apt again and again throughout this hilarious and... Read the rest of this post

10. TURNING PAGES: ZERO, by Tom Leveen

It's officially Spring. Means it's time for a band novel. Or, something like that.Not as many of these crossing my reading space these days, and when I saw the punky cover on this one, I had to smile."What drew you to it?" CitySmartGirl asked me... Read the rest of this post

11. Monday Review: MORTAL ENGINES by Philip Reeve

I really enjoyed reading Philip Reeve's 2010 novel (and Cybils SFF Finalist) Fever Crumb, with its post-apocalyptic feel and its enigmatic main character. Little did I know that Fever Crumb was actually a prequel to Reeve's first novel, Mortal... Read the rest of this post

12. TURNING PAGES: Pricilla the Great: The Time Traveling Bullet, by Sybil Nelson

When I read The Enchanted Inkpot's piece on Sybil Nelson this past February, I was, to put it mildly, GOBSMACKED. Okay, it's not as if there aren't people of color writing comic book style novels - but my interest here piqued because the character... Read the rest of this post

13. TURNING PAGES: The Other Normals, by Ned Vizzini

You thought I'd forgotten about you, didn't you? I started talking about role-playing games, or RPG and mentioned a book - but spent too much time talking about a movie to get into it. Now I'm ready to talk books. You know how you get sort of a... Read the rest of this post

15. CYBILS F/SF: MATT ARCHER, MONSTER HUNTER, by Kendra C. Higley

Written by a woman who can channel the voice of younger teen guys, this novel says "Boyhood Dreams" all over it. I loved the outright wish-fulfillment bits of this novel. I mean, this kid goes from being a nobody to being a hero -- from fairly weak... Read the rest of this post

16. CYBILS F/SF: INSIGNIA, by S.J. Kincaid

I've got school story-itis. I LOVE and adore school stories. Boarding school stories are EVEN BETTER. I don't know why - I went to boarding school and know it to be a peculiar sort of hell, but somewhere in my head I'm still expecting to find... Read the rest of this post

17. Monday Review: TRAITOR'S SON by Hilari Bell

Reader Gut Reaction: I enjoyed the first book in this duet, Trickster's Girl (reviewed here) a lot more than I expected to, so I was pleased to find the second book was available in my library so soon after I read the first one (no waiting ages for... Read the rest of this post

18. TURNING PAGES: The Twelve-Fingered Boy, by John Hornor Jacobs

Honestly? This is kind of a hard book to review. Not because of the plot - the story's there, all right - but because it's hard to convey whose side we should be on. Do the bad guys really mean harm? Is the narrative - in juvie, thanks - at all... Read the rest of this post

19. Turning Pages: Through the Hidden Door, Rosemary Wells

Well, sure we all know who Rosemary Wells is. She's the one who does the bunnies! The adorable bunnies! The cuddly bunnies! The fabulous Ruby and Max! Oh, and Nora, Yoko, and McDuff, too, but mostly we know her from Ruby and Max. So, how did we go... Read the rest of this post

20. Monday Review: CHOMP by Carl Hiaasen

Reader Gut Reaction: I don't post about too many middle grade titles—to be perfectly honest, I don't read as many MG books as I do YA—so it's kind of ironic that I read this book a couple of weeks ago and then realized I should wait to post... Read the rest of this post

21. Turning Pages: FREAKS, by Kieran Larwood

Well, this one has a nice, succinct title, doesn't it? FREAKS. Misfits. Mutants. This is a strangely compelling but freakish little work, first published in Britain in 2011, and winner of The Times/Chicken House Publishing Children’s Fiction... Read the rest of this post

22. Thursday Review: BAD ISLAND by Doug TenNapel

Doug TenNapel, who the increasingly aged among us may remember as the creator of the video game character Earthworm Jim, has written several graphic novels by now, which have gotten quite a bit of positive buzz; however, Bad Island is the first one... Read the rest of this post

23. Turning Pages: Man Trip, by Graham Salisbury

It has to be every once in a great big blue moon that we'll do a middle grade review on this blog, mainly because AF, Citysmart Girl and I write YA lit and tend to limit our reading choices in that direction. However, CSG has two wee boys, and one... Read the rest of this post

24. Thursday Review: SHIP OF SOULS by Zetta Elliott

Reader Gut Reaction: I tend to think there needs to be more contemporary-setting fantasy for the middle grade/younger YA set—without vampires or werewolves, thank you very much—and I particularly like to see fantasy novels with multicultural... Read the rest of this post

25. Catching Up: Monday Mini-Reviews

I've gotta be honest with you—lately I've been so busy that fitting in a blog post even twice a week has seemed like an impossibly Everestian endeavor, so today I'm just going to offer a few brief, informal reviews, catching up on a couple of... Read the rest of this post
