Reviewing Zoe's Tale a few days ago made me decided to read all the books nominated for this year's Andre Norton Award, the Nebula equivalent award for Young Adult Science Fiction and Fantasy. Would any one like to join me? The award will be announced May 15th, so there's plenty of time. Here's the list:
- Hotel Under the Sand, Kage Baker (Tachyon, Jul09)
- Ice, Sarah Beth Durst (Simon and Schuster, Oct09)
- Ash, Malinda Lo (Little, Brown and Company, Sep09)

If you'd like to read these too, please leave a comment and I'll list participants here, with links to any posts you might have about them.....
Just to get things started, I've read Ash, Ice, Zoe's Tale, and Hotel Under the Sand, and read, but not reviewed, Eyes Like Stars and When You Reach Me.
Misty and Becky, have joined me, with Kate and Bookwyrm expressing some interest as well....Anyone else?
