Bless the nice folks at Macmillan, who make librarians feel super important by giving us fruit and coffee and veggies and fancy crackers and then showering us in lots of lots of ARCs. This is not the kind of treatment I get often, but when I do it makes my day. Wanna see what I got?
So, here’s some stuff that I’m pretty psyched about. Some I got ARCs of, some not. I included 3 word reviews, because I haven’t read them yet.
Monstrous Beauty, Elizabeth Fama, Grades 7 and up
Mermaids, curses, ghosts.
Because It Is My Blood, Gabrielle Zevin, Grades 7 and up
Sequel! Finally! Yay!
Tumford’s Rude Noises, Nancy Tillman, Picture Book
FART KITTEH ADORBZ
Knuckle and Potty Destroy Happy World, James Proimos, Grades 2-5
Silly, cute, colorful.
For What’s It’s Worth, Janet Tashjian, Grades 7 and up
Vinyl oujia Vietnam.
Gothy grrrrl power.
Les Petits Fairytales, Trixie Belle, Melissa Caruso-Scott, illustrations by Oliver Lake, Ages 0 to 3
Short, sweet, kawaii.
David Macaulay Readers (Castle: How it Works and Jet Plane: How it Works), Ages 7-8
A is for Musk Ox, Erin Cabatingan, illustrated by Matthew Myers, Grades K
Broxo, Zack Giallongo, Graphic Novel, Grades 5-9
Barbarian Princess. ZOMBIES.
So, those are the books I’m extra excited about. But, who knows? Maybe I’ll end up liking completely different ones from my stack of ARCs.
If you’ll excuse me, I have a lot of reading to do.
