On My Wishlist: June 04, 2011: 06/03/11
I finished Rebecca's World by Terry Nation. It was his first attempt at writing tween fiction. It's a fairly typical fantasy adventure where a young girl ends up in a strange world and becomes a hero before finding her way home. The book has some intricate and groovy illustrations. The illustrations more than anything else make the book feel dated.
I hope to finish Cheap Cabernet by Cathie Beck by Monday. I should have had one more renewal on the book but it's very popular right now and a fellow patron has put it on hold. I don't mind — that's how I got it in the first place. It just means that I have to give it priority this weekend as I only have Saturday and Sunday left to finish it. I'm about 1/3 of the way through.
I also have going Mio My Son by Astrid Lindgren, the creator of Pippi Longstocking. Were I not suddenly racing to finishing Cheap Cabernet, I would be finishing Mio My Son instead. It's a delightful fantasy adventure story that fans of Gail Carson Levine will like it.
Finally, I'm reading a collection of poetry by Bucky Sinister called All Blacked Out & No Where to Go. It also has Whisky and Robots, which was the collection actually on my wishlist.
Upcoming wishlist reads include (they are in my hands waiting to be read):
The Featured Wish for June 04, 2010:
The Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan
I just finished The Lost Hero and want to keep going with the series. I especially love how the action and mystery is set in the Bay Area. After finishing the book my husband and I discussed potential locations for The Son of Neptune based on clues left in the first book.

I'd like to read 13 Blue Envelopes as well, it looks like fun.

I've heard it's very good. I'll get it read in the next week or so.

I haven't read anything by Rick Riordan, but since recently seeing the Lightening Thief movie I think I'd like to start. Thanks for stopping by and saying hello!

They cut a lot out of the book to make the movie.

Oh I need this one as well, but I still need to read the first one in the series. Great pick.

I'm trying to figure out where that glacier might be. It could be somewhere like Glacier Bay or Antartica. Not sure though.

I really need to start this series!

Have you read the Percy Jackson books? While the new series isn't exactly a continuation of it, it is related to the first series.
