These are all great choices, Annie! I love Sharon Creech and really enjoyed Finding Redbird. I also absolutely loved A Great and Terrible Beauty. In fact, I'm currently reading the 3rd in the series, The Sweet Far Thing. I can't wait to hear what you think about it, since I was just recommending it to my daughter, who is your age.

Jean said...

Wow! All of those should keep you going for what? A week? A few days? However quickly you read them, I hope you enjoy most if not all of them, and take something special away from each one.

Court said...

Ooh, you've got a lot of really good books there, Annie! I can't wait to read your reviews!

(My personal favourite of all those you received is Ally Carter's I'd Tell You I Love You But Then I'd Have to Kill You!)

Nymeth said...

What a great haul! Those should keep you busy for about a week :P

I especially look forward to your thoughts on Card's book on writing...I'm very curious about that one!

Debi said...


I'm not going to read them all right away--I want to save some. But still...


Yeah, that one looks really good!

Nymeth--I'm interested to read his writing book, too!


Kim L said...

Wow you got some great books there! I'm totally jealous. I hope you enjoy Speaker for the Dead. I just finished and LOVED it.

Carl V. said...

I said so on your mom's site but I'll give you a belated Happy Birthday here as well. Great haul of books there! I read the Orson Scott Card book years ago, and his other nonfiction book on writing, and absolutely loved them both. Valley of Secrets looks really interesting, I'm going to have to look that one up.
