A few weeks ago, I took three *huge* bags of books to the public library. I had read some of them. I had started all of them. I decided to give each of them a new home, so that other people could discover them (and so that I could actually see the “shelf” of my to-be-read shelf.)
And this past Saturday, I went to work, adding new entries to that shelf. I attended an event at Hooray for Books, the wonderful independent children’s book store that hosted my launch party for DARKBEAST. Saturday’s event was built around the theme of “strong heroines in YA novels.” I have three new treasures to read:

PROPHECY, by Ellen Oh – a fantasy novel built on Korean history, myths, and legends. I’m very excited to read this book that draws on so many traditions so not-known by me!
BORN WICKED, by Jessica Spotswood – a book about sisters, magic, and kissing, according to the author. I *loved* the brief section that Jessica read, and I can’t wait to read more!
