I got some terrific titles from NetGalley this week.

Wisdom's Kiss
by Catherine Gilbert Murdock
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
September 2011

I love a good fairy-tale retelling. This one looks like fun.

Inquisitor's Apprentice 
by Chris Moriarty, illustrated by Mark Edward Geyer
Harcourt Children's Books
October 2011

Magic crimefighters! This book puts me in mind of Dianna Wynne Jones' Chrestomanci series, or even Michael Reisman's Simon Bloom books.

Peter Nimble and His Fantastic Eyes
by Jonathan Auxier
Amulet Books
August 2011

A blind boy thief in an Dickensian environment. I've heard rumors of a cover change. I like this cover best.

by Jon Skovron

Teen girl struggles with her half-demon heritage. Hello? Why not just title this one, "Madigan, please buy this." because this sounds totally up my alley.

I loved the first book in this new series, Stork. I was surprised that it didn't get more attention! I can't believe I get to read the sequel months before everyone else. I am such a lucky duck.

Last Dragon
by Jane Yolen, illustrated by Rebecca Guay
Dark Horse
October 2011

I don't read a lot of graphic novels, but the cover on this is gorgeous, and I like Jane Yolen, and Dark Horse Comics has a really good reputation. I hope it's good!


  1. I love fairy tales retold too, so will be interested in your thoughts on that book. Jane Yolen has always been a favorite of mine. Enjoy!

  2. Catherine Gilbert Murdock is a fantastic writer. Have you tried her Dairy Queen trilogy? It's awesome. And I liked Stork too! I hope the sequel meets the standard set by the first book. Enjoy your new books!

  3. I read the first of the Dairy Queen books and loved it! The remaining two are languishing on my TBR list. I'll get to them... eventually.

  4. I missed _Stork_ - it looks really interesting! How do you like reading graphic novels in e-format? I've been hesitant to request those.

  5. Oooh, they all sound so good! I've been using NetGalley as well and also have "Inquisitor's Apprentice" and "Misfit" queued up - both of which I'm excited about - and I'm looking forward to reading your thoughts on all of these!

    Happy reading. :)
