New Stuff at the Library! - YA Edition

Ah, here's our big cart. First, the YA, because except for the holds, the new YA materials are actually going onto a cart back in my office - they won't go on the shelf until our "grand opening" of the new teen area on the 19th.
  • Van Alen Legacy by Melissa De La Cruz. I've had a hold request for this on my desk since last February...It's finally here Amanda!
  • Front and Center by Catherine Murdock. This one also...I've skimmed bits and pieces of Dairy Queen - someday I'll sit down and read the whole thing.
  • Wish you were dead by Todd Strasser. Didn't realize until I saw more reviews that this isn't a typical Strasser, more a mystery/thriller, which is ok as we need more mysteries.
  • Demon King by Cinda Chima. A gamble - I have a couple firm Chima fans, but will they want to read a long "high fantasy" novel? We'll see.
  • Going Bovine by Libba Bray. Part of my "more funny books with non-gender-specific-covers campaign".
  • Gorgeous by Rachel Vail. The previous book, Lucky, was very popular here.
  • Liar by Justine Larbalestier. I skimmed the end really quickly. Woo. This isn't going to be popular with everyone, but it's definitely going to find readers.
  • Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld. Sigh. I have to wait my turn on the holds list.
  • Ask and the Answer by Patrick Ness. The first book, which I got about a month ago, checked out several times, so I went ahead and added the second.
  • Treasure Map of Boys by E. Lockhart. I thought this would be popular - I was right, it went right out on a hold.
  • Spellbinder by Helen Stringer. Debated putting this in juvenile, but it's right on the edge and I'm guessing the sequels will be older. My Review.
  • Fire by Kristin Cashore. Someday I'm going to read Graceling...
Are you ready for the next stack?

You're going to read the Patrick Ness books, right? Excellent.

I went ahead on put his adult fiction on ILL because I love the Knife of Letting Go so much. It looks a little weird, but we'll see.

Probably not - I don't usually read dystopian stuff. But I might skim them....
