Anticipating NaNoWriMo

As I gear up for this year’s NaNoWriMo, I’m making reading lists.  I’ve never won NaNoWriMo.  I always run out of steam.  I don’t want that to happen anymore!

I’ve chosen YA urban fantasy as my genre of choice this year.  So far I know I want it to be a story about a girl who has to save her sister.  I feel that’s vague enough that I can express it without worries of anyone stealing my idea.  I have established a writing LJ parallel to this one, entitled

 , to chronicle my plans for writing.  I’m on NaNoWriMo as KimberlyH, should you care to be buddies.   

Here are my reading lists that I’m using as resources:
Bildungsroman: Fantasy Novels for Kids and Teens
Bildungsroman: Monster Mash
Bildungsroman: Vamping It Up
YALSA: Magic in the Real World

Anyone have any other list suggestions?  I’m looking for lists rather than titles, because it’s nice to get lots of info in one place.

  1. Thanks for the compliment, HWM!

    Thanks for using those lists, Kiba. As you know, I only list books I like and/or feel are suitable for the age and/or theme of the list, so if you want to know which books I, hmm, did not pick for those lists, email me.
