On that note, a few new titles soon to hit the paperback spinners...
Check 'Em Out!
Fendi, Ferragamo, & Fangs (think Gucci clad vampires...)

Loving Will Shakespeare
Why I Let My Hair Grow Out
Love in the Corner Pocket
**Two Way Street
Crazy in Love
Two Moons in August

La Petit Four
Goddess Games
**Beautiful City of the Dead
How To Ruin My Teenage Life
If I Have a Wicked Stepmother, Where's My Prince?
Goy Crazy
Dead Connection
Hail Caesar
The Geography of Girlhood

(I'm gonna start this one before the meeting, so I can give ya a "yay!" or "nay!"
See you soon!

We miss you too! When does Sound wrap up, anyhow? Also, had time to read any books you'd care to recommend? If not, we'll read a few for ya, & pass 'em along when you finally have time! :)

AH!!!! I hav way too many books 2 read!!!!!! I checked out a ton and i hav a MILLION @ my house!!!!! I've finished 3 books so far this summer!!! Pitiful, PITIFUL!!! (in case u care, they r The Thief Lord, Lily B on the Brink of Cool, and The Pretty Committee Strikes Back. All very good, btw) Its all cuz im reading that british edition of the HP7 and i havnt finished it yet....o its ok if i count this as "contributing to the teen blog @ least once" rite?

lauren said...

Im not sure when Sound ends... its like this black-hole of time-suckingness.... i cant believe its almost the forth of July already... WHERE DID JUNE GO??? (and when is it coming back??)

library lady said...

Sad to say, June will return 12 long months from now...On an upnote, Henna day is fast approaching...

And, yes, your comment fulfills the EXTRA CHALLENGE "contribute to the blog at least once" requirement! I do, of course, hope that you'll keep posting about those books, however! :)

lauren said...

I just read Season of Ice and Avalon High: Coronatgion VOlume2 for the program, and they were both really good! I'm almost done with "When the Black Girl Sings", and so far thats incredible too.

Re: Henna (I'll post the info momentarily...)

As for "Season of Ice" & "When the Black Girl Sings," I've been wanting to read those! Glad to hear they're good!

i read an awsome book this summer called Of Mice and Men and i cried so much it was so sad

freehanded spirit said...

i read an awsome book this past week and i cried it's called Of Mice and Men.... it was so sad especally at the end but, ya do any of you have good book that you did not cry to when reading and i also like those Manga books but i don't know wich ones to read

library lady said...

Wow, been a while since I read "Of Mice and Men," but I remember thinking it was suprisingly good. Same goes for the movie. Of course, both made me cry. If you're looking for a non tear-jerker (& are a fan of manga) ya might want to try "The Astonishing Adventures of Fanboy & Goth Girl" by Barry Lyga. A few other fave chucklers also include: "Spanking Shakespeare," "King Dork," "Miracle Wimp," and "The Absoultely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian" (the last being my vote for best book of the year!!!) :)
