Library List!

Here’s what I hope to pick up on my next trip to the library: 
The Silver Child, Cliff McNish – because its sequel was a Cybils nominee 
Kristy’s Great Idea: A Graphic Novel, Ann M. Martin – Cybils 
To Dance, Siena Siegel – Cybils 
American Born Chinese, Gene Yang – Cybils 
Castle Waiting, Linda Medley – Cybils 
Dramacon Vol 1, Svetlana Chmakova – Cybils 
La Perdida, Jessica Abel – Cybils 
A Drowned Maiden’s Hair: A Melodrama, Laura Amy Schlitz – Cybils 
Framed, Frank Cottrell Boyce – Cybils 
Heat, Mike Lupica – Cybils 
Weedflower [sound recording], Cynthia Kadohata – Cybils 
The Earth, My Butt, and Other Big, Round Things, Carolyn Mackler – readergirlz 
Aria of the Sea, Dia Calhoun – readergirlz 
Make Lemonade, Virginia Euwer Wolff

Last trip I got 7 books, this time I hope to get 14.  I do everything in multiples of 7.

Things to get eventually but not now, due to unavailability: 
Babymouse – All of them! But I have to read them in order. It’s an OCD type thing. I read BSC in order, for goodness’ sake. (Again because of the Cybils.) 
Kiki Strike: inside the shadow city, Kirsten Miller – Cybils

  1. I read the graphic novel version of The Truth About Stacy at Borders one day. I was surprised by how many details the artist put in that I remembered from the original series, right down to Claudia Kishi’s outfits. (I was shocked by how much I remembered from the original book. I haven’t picked up a BSC since I was fifteen or sixteen, but I read and reread them when I was younger.)

  2. Great GNs!

    I’ll be interested to hear which of the Cybils GNs you liked best. I really cheered for Castle Waiting to win. I loved La Perdida, but it seemed a bit too adult.

    And hey, don’t apologize for reading a series in order. That’s what ALL good readers do (uh…I mean, that’s what I do!).
