The Book of Three, by Lloyd Alexander, at Bookie Woogie
The Boy at the End of the World, by Greg van Eekhout, at Suburban (in)Sanity
The Dark City, by Catherine Fisher, at One Librarian's Book Reviews (I gave my own ARC of this away to a 12 year old boy I know, who liked it so much that he made (or at least started to make) his own recording of it so that his mother could listen to it on her commute to work)
Dr. Proctor's Fart Powder--Time Travel Bath Bomb, by Jo Nesbo, at Wondrous Reads
Enchanted Glass, by Diana Wynne Jones, at Confessions of a Bibliovore
The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making, by Catherynne Valente, at Fuse #8
The Green Book, by Jill Paton Walsh, at Just Booking Around
Half-Magic, by Edward Eager, at Anita Silvey's Book-a-day Almanac
Human.4, by Mike Lancaster, at Charlotte's Library (one of those "YA" books that works for 11, even 10 year olds. My 10 year old is enjoying it, at any rate).
