With Bated Breath August

Are you all ready for August?!  This month we have:

  • Two Ugly Duckling retellings in The Ugly Duchess and The Sweetest Spell.
  • Two highly anticipated sophomore sequels in Girl of Nightmares (sequel to Kendare Blake’s debut Anna Dressed in Blood) and Embers and Echoes (sequel to Karsten Knight’s debut Wildefire).
  • Two new books by Newberry winners in Splendors and Gloom (Laura Amy Schlitz won the Newberry in 2008 for Good Masters! Sweet Ladies! Voices from a Medieval Village) and Liar & Spy (Rebecca Stead won the Newberry in 2010 for When You Reach Me).
  • One amazing looking anthology in Under My Hat which includes stories by Neil Gaiman, Holly Black, Diana Peterfreund, Margo Lanagan, Peter S. Beagle, and Garth Nix.  Did you see that list?!
  • One of my most highly anticipated Middle Grade reads for 2012 in The Cavendish Home for Boys and Girls
  • Plus heaps more!
