What do I have on my card that I should be reading right now?

Monday, November 12th, 2007

Naylor, Phyllis Witch’s sister (kids – scary)
Snyder, Zilpha The trespassers (kids – scary)
Thompson, Richard The follower (kids – scary)
Hurst, Carol Otis The wrong one (kids – scary)
Block, Francesca Weetzie Bat (teens – surreal contemporary )
Moriyama, Daisuke Chrono crusade 1 – 5 (teens 0 manga)
Morgenstern, Julie Organizing from the inside out for teens (teens)
Morgenstern, Julie Organizing from the inside out (adults)
Morgenstern, Julie Time management from the inside out (adults)
Zevin, Gabrielle Memoirs of a teenage amnesiac (teens – book on cd)
Caroline Murmurs (music cd)
Sakaki, Ichiro Scrapped princess 1- 2 (teens – manga)
Pearson, Ridley Peter and the Starcatchers (teen – downloaded audiobook)

I’m on a kids book committee to create a scary stories book list, so I should have more scary stories checked out, however I really want to read the books to teach me better organization and time management skills. Plus, I always need to keep up with my manga reading, much to my husband’s disgust. 🙂 When I was looking at Amazon for the books, the scary ones received some pretty good reviews from School Library Journal, which is very encouraging.

I’m trying to get through Peter and the Starcatchers, but I can’t get into it as much as I thought I would. As I speak, I’m downloading The Immortals, Book 1: Wild Magic by Tamora Pierce. Hopefully, it will be better than the other one.

I guess maybe I should actually read some of them now. 🙂
