Ya Book Suggestions
As you are all well aware, I am a huge fan of children's and YA books. Being that I am a children's librarian, I should love them and I do, but I don't always get to read as many as I would like. My job, ordering wise, puts me in charge of picture books for children, not chapter books, so I don't often get to see what is new out there, except what my co-worker actually orders for our shelves. Therefore, I get a lot of my YA and young reader choices from all of you! Right now I'm in the middle of Coraline by Neil Gaiman, which was a blogger suggested read and am about to start Gossamer by Lois Lowry, an author I always read anyways, but again, a blogger suggestion. Just to throw a question out there, if there were any one (or 2 or 5) books in this YA/young reader age group you would suggest for me to read, what would they be? New, old, I don't care, I'm just looking for some fresh ideas!
