Revised Read-a-Thon List

So you know how I mentioned that I'd be going to the library? Well, I bumped into my friend Jo (a librarian) near the YA section, and I told her what I was up to this Saturday--and within minutes, I was carrying this stack around the library:

For the record, my book stack for Dewey's Read-a-Thon now contains these books:
  • Eon: Dragoneye Reborn by Alison Goodman
  • Monster Blood Tattoo by D.M. Cornish
  • An Episode of Sparrows by Rumer Godden
  • Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson*
  • The Looking Glass Wars by Frank Beddor
  • Sima's Undergarments for Women* by Ilana Stanger-Ross
  • The Amulet of Samarkand (Book One of The Bartimaeus Trilogy) by Jonathan Stroud
  • The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman (audiobook)
  • Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman (I still have to find this one)
  • Hamlet & Ophelia by John Marsden
  • Wake by Lisa McMann
  • The Heretic's Daughter by Kathleen Kent

*This one was in the new books rack, which I browse every time just before I leave the library.

Wintergirls is great, but I would read it earlier on because of the heavy subject matter. I didn't particularly like Wake myself, but I seem to be in the minority on that one.
