  2. Shanghai Girls by Lisa See
  3. Dreaming in French by Megan McAndrew
  4. A Lion Among Men by Gregory Maguire
  5. King Rat by China Mieville
  6. Love Walked In by Marisa de los Santos
  7. The Secret of the Fire King by Kim Edwards
  8. Shelf Discovery: Teen Classics We Never Stopped Reading by Lizzie Skurnick (this should probably go up there, but I want 10 and 10)
  9. All the issues of New Yorker that are stacked up on my coffee table to remind me that I just had to have a subscription.
  10. Along the same lines, I'd really like to finish War and Peace, which I've been reading since June...
This is basically my holds list at the library with a few extras from around the house thrown in. Hopefully it'll be enough that this is kind of a challenge but will leave me enough wiggle room for random stuff that comes along. I'll add links to the ones I review as I get to them.

The Vampirates series looks interesting. I hadn't heard of it so naturally I had to head over to Amazon to check it out. I'll have to start looking for some of these.

Hey Buffie -
I have really enjoyed the Vampirates books so far and I highly recommend them! I've reviewed books one and two, if you're interested.

I heard an interview with the Shelf Discovery author -- it definitely sounds interesting. And I've been very curious about The Graveyard Book.

Thanks for being part of Fall Into Reading '09!

The Heretic's Daughter is really, really good.

Ahh - you're the second challenger to mention the stacks of New Yorker - they do pile up! Lots of new titles for me on your lists! Good luck with the challenge.
