  1. Ugh, I know I for one am no fan of Daylight Savings. Though I definitely won't mind it six months from now when I get my hour back! By the way, on Monday I reviewed Gordon Korman's No More Dead Dogs here, if you want to add that to your list. Thank you so much for putting these compilations together, they're such a great way to find other bloggers who share my appreciation for MG books!

    1. Is No More Dead Dogs spec fic? If it is, I"ll happily add it!

    2. Whoops, and now I feel like an idiot for not realizing that "fantasy and science fiction" actually means "fantasy and science fiction." No idea how I missed that. Sorry, No More Dead Dogs is not speculative fiction.
