Books of 2009 I am looking forward to, Part II

I vaguely felt last week, when I was posting my list of 2009 books to which I am looking forward, that I was missing something. And in fact, I was--several somethings. To wit:

Shelter Me by Alex McAulay. I don't have long to wait for this one, since its release date was yesterday...which is good, because books that combine WW II and boarding school make me happy.

Princess of the Midnight Ball by Jessica Day George (January 20). We were lucky enough to have two of her books to read for the Cybils--Sun and Moon, Ice and Snow, and Dragon Flight, and I enjoyed them both.

Betraying Season (Leland Sisters, Book 2) by Marissa Doyle (May). The sequel to The Bewitching Season, which I read for the Cybils with great enjoyment (my review).

Of course I'm looking forward to the sequel to Catching Fire, by Suzanne Collins (fall), but before that comes out, I think I hope to be reading her new book 12, coming out in May from Feiwell and Friends. Although don't ask me what it is about, because I can't find any information about it.

And another book I don't know much about, other than that it is YA- Gateway, by Sharon Shinn (October).

Finally, here's one I'm looking forward to more for my 8 year old's sake than my own:

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Last Straw by Jeff Kinney (Jan 13)

And I think that is it, although I am probably wrong.


  1. These all look good! *Adding them to my wishlist* :)

  2. I agree on all of them! But I'm really crazy about Catching Fire- how am I supposed to wait that long?

  3. I too am planning to buy a copy of 'Diary of a Wimpey Kid' for one of my grandsons, who takes great pleasure in kids of this type - I hope it may make him see the other side of these kids.
    I too write for kids, and have now achieved a long held ambition, and had my first book published (Dec 08) I can only hope that I too have readers planning to buy my book. Thanks for a great blog.
