ooooo. I'll have to pick some of those up in '09...

Happy New Years!

Love Moriarty.

Not so keen on Company of Swans. Do they ever leave the bedroom? No. Now, Countess Below Stairs is my kind of Ibbotson. :)

I know this isn't related, but I love your new header! It's so gorgeous!

So many people (including me, hee) seem to be changing their headers.
First it was snow, now it's headers... *shakes head*

;) Was your header pic taken in Iceland?

I am so stealing some of those and adding them to my reading list!!!!
Rapunzel's Revenge and Song of the Sparrow sound quite interesting!

How did you like #4?

Edge 1/02/2009 3:22 PM  

7 and 8 = sheer awesomeness, 8 in particular, as I was in a Shakespeare class while reading that book :-)

Yay for #7!! :D I loved #6. It was similar to Because of Winn-Dixie, yet more depressing but more poignant. How did you like it?

Marie - Thanks! :)

Noel - Agree. I'm glad to hear Countess is better, because I don't want to give up on Ibbotson's YA.

Maya - Thank you! It's actually from San Francisco.

Traci - Isn't it such awesome?

Ballerina - Those two I both gave five stars on Good Reads. Do!

Erin - I loved it.

Edge - Ooh, that'd be a fun coincidence. I did wish that I had read more of the plays that he read with Mrs. Baker.

perfectgoodluck - I really liked it too. Seriously skillful writing.

And how about The Tiger Rising (a book we chose when we judged the 2001 National Book Awards YA selections)?

cuileann 1/07/2009 10:33 PM  

Beth - I thought the prose was just lovely, and the story was very skillful and thoughtful. Also, Sistine is probably one of my favorite fictional characters (and I am in love with the story of her name!).
