SLJ BoB Undead Poll and My Predictions

The Undead Poll is open for this year's BoB's competition. If you want to ensure your favorite stays in the competition to the end be sure and vote here. Usually I have a book that I desperately want to back, but not this year. It would be nice if we could keep the MG books going strong this year. I personally ended up voting for A Corner of White though. (I know, not MG.) But I feel like it is the most unique book on the list and one that definitely doesn't appeal to everyone so may not make it past Round One. And I really loved it.

I don't usually do a predictions post, but this year I decided to go for it. So here are my predictions:

Round One 
All the Truth That's In Me versus The Animal Book: All the Truth That's In Me

Boxers and Saints versus A Corner of White: Boxers and Saints

Doll Bones versus Eleanor & Park: Doll Bones

Far Far Away versus Flora & Ulysses: Far Far Away

Hokey Pokey vs March Book One: March Book One

Midwinter Blood versus P.S. Be Eleven: P.S. Be Eleven

Rose Under Fire versus The Thing About Luck: Rose Under Fire

True Blue Scouts of Sugar Man Swamp versus What The Heart Knows: True Blue Scouts of Sugar Man Swamp

Round Two

All the Truth That's In Me versus Boxers and Saints:  Boxers and Saints

Doll Bones versus Far Far Away: Doll Bones

March Book One versus P. S. Be Eleven: P.S. Be Eleven

Rose Under Fire versus True Blue Scouts: True Blue Scouts 

Round Three

Boxers and Saints versus Doll Bones: Boxers and Saints

P.S. Be Eleven versus True Blue Scouts: P.S. Be Eleven

Undead Winner: Eleanor & Park

Round Four

Boxers and Saints vs P.S. Be Eleven vs Eleanor & Park: P.S. Be Eleven

Oh this is mostly my wishful thinking with some critical thinking applied here and there. Mostly just wishful thinking though.

Future Favorite Friday: June 2018

I take the 2nd Friday of every month to highlight some upcoming releases I am looking forward to that I hope are Future Favorites. Feel free to do your own post, just please link back to my blog and tell me about your post in the comments.

Two Naomis was one of my favorite reads of 2016 so I was understandably excited it's getting a sequel. 

In this sequel to Two Naomis, now that Naomi Marie’s mom and Naomi E.’s dad are married, the girls have learned to do a lot of things together, like All-Family Sunday dinners, sixth-grade homework, navigating the subway system by themselves, and visiting their favorite bakeries. Until sixth grade in a new school presents a whole new set of surprises and challenges.

Trusting her gut has worked for Naomi E. all her life, and she figures that it will be an asset to her role as a Peer Mediator—until she realizes how much of the job requires the Art of Compromise, which she’s only just starting to get used to at home.

Naomi Marie is excited about maki…

Lovely War

When I first heard about Lovely War by Julie Berry, I remember thinking, "Whoa, that's ambitious." And it is. The scope and depth of this story with all of its intricacies and thematic elements is massive. Berry manages to hold it all together beautifully. She managed it so beautifully that it is so far my favorite YA read of 2019.

The ecstasies and the wounds of love were Aphrodite's work. Forging passions was what she was born to do. She, too, was a welder, a mistress of fire of a different sort, working in materials more powerful and resistant than carbon and iron. And what did that toil do to her?

In 1942 New York City while men are partying on the eve of shipping off to war, a stunning couple arrives at a hotel in the midst of the revelry and departs for their room followed by an overly enthusiastic bellboy. But none of these figures are as they appear. The couple is Aphrodite and Ares on a secret assignation that turns out to be not so secret as the bellboy is Ap…

This Week's Topic: Auto-Buy Authors

Here are my auto-buy authors and their most recent or coming soon release. Also, I got stuck on twelve and couldn't cut it down any further. So it's really Top Twelve Tuesday today. Or Thirteen rather as I sort of combined Emma and Genevieve. (I auto-buy all their individual projects too.)








Who are some authors whose books you buy no matter what?

(I don't know what it says about me that there is only one male author on this list, but I don't dislike whatever it is.)
