In this issue, my YA review column covers:
Midnight Alley, by Rachel Caine, the 3rd in the Morganville Vampires series.
Uninvited, by Justine Musk
Book of a Thousand Days, by Shannon Hale
Hero, by Perry Moore
The Nixie's Song, by Tony DiTerlizzi and Holly Black
Little (Grrl) Lost, by Charles de Lint
Fight Game, by Kate Wild
Submitted, but apparently cut for space was Weregirls: Birth of the Pack, by Petru Poprescu...
I guess I ran over word budget again.
Currently reading for, and working on, the next installment of the column, tentatively to include new books by Neal Shusterman, Scott Westerfeld, Henry Neff, Amanda Marrone, Phillip Reeve, and Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson. I reckon I have the better part of two weeks to finish it, so this lineup can change. More importantly, I have at least 1-2 spots left on the lineup, so I'm open to reccomendations. Only caveat is they need to be as recent as possible, or coming out sometime soon, and I have to be able to get my hands on them before the first of December-ish. So feel free to suggest something!
Fiction in this issue includes stories by M. K. Hobson, Josh Rountree, Benjamin Rosenbaum, Elizabeth Bear, Margaret Ronald, and Peni Griffin.
