On My Wishlist: April 16, 2011: 04/16/11
Right now I'm reading Conrad's Fate, the fifth in Diana Wynn Jones's Crestomanci series. I read the first half of the series about a decade ago and didn't notice that she had written more books in the series until about a month ago. My wish for this week relates directly to the book I'm currently reading.
The list of upcoming wishlist reads remains unchanged.
Upcoming wishlist reads include:
The Featured Wish for April 16, 2010:
The Pinhoe Egg (Crestomanci #6) by Diana Wynne Jones (recommended by @xicanti)
I was actually in the process of writing up a wishlist post for a completely different book when I saw @xicanti mention on twitter that she was reading a Diana Wynne Jones book. Since I'm in the middle of Conrad's Fate, I asked her which book she was reading. Turns out she's reading the next book after mine.
I added it to my wishlist because I adore the Chrestomanci series and I didn't know that there was a sixth book.

I don't think I have heard of any of these, I hope you enjoy your choices when you get round to reading them.

Most of the books on my list I have at home. I will get to reading them later this week.

I was so sorry to hear the news of Diana Wynne Jones death...she wrote some absolutely fantasic books. I actually had a retrospective of her this week - check it out! :)

I plan to. I've been so busy with school work that I've hardly been online.

Always in for a surprise when I visit your wishlist. I never know any of the books you have on them :-)

I sort of do my own thing with reading.

I have never even heard of these books. I will have to investigate further.

My featured is the last of the Chrestomanci series. The others are either science fiction, non fiction or tween fiction.

I own all of the series except for the last two which I'm checking out from the library.

Wow, this sounds great.

It should be but you should start with the first book if you haven't read any of the Chrestomanci books.

I've not read any of that series but it does sound good!
Sorry about adding to your wishlist with the drawing book - it sounds amazing doesn't it? *g*
