February 2010 Favorites:

Mistwood - One of the best fantasies I've read in the last six months. Full of adventure, intrigue, character growth, mystery, and a hint of romance.
Carter Finally Gets It - Laugh out loud funny...full of heart and raunchy teen boy humor.
When You Reach Me - An excellent mystery. Wonderful characters. Heartwarming.
The Virgin Queen's Daughter - Fantastically plausible, gut-wrenching alternate Tudor history.
The Dragon Games - A great continuation to the "Books of Umber" series. Love the adventure, mystery and creativity of the author!


  1. I just read When You Reach Me and loved it too. Thanks for the Carter Finally Gets It recommendation, just put it on hold at the library!

  2. Carter Finally Gets It was SOOOO funny! I think there are some parents who might be iffy about it, but really it screams boy...and any book I can get into a sixteen year old boy's hands and have him actually finish definitely gets my thumbs-up!
