Pop Goes the Library

Using Pop Culture to Make Libraries Better.

by Sophie Brookover, Liz Burns, Melissa Rabey, Susan Quinn, John Klima, Carlie Webber, Karen Corday, and Eli Neiburger. We're librarians. We're pop culture mavens. We're Pop Culture Librarians.


Another BEA post: YA ARCs

As Liz already mentioned, Book Expo America was a great way to spend a weekend. I became a librarian because I love to read and I love talking about books, so BEA is a way to get a lot of information, not to mention tons of books!

Some of the books I'm most looking forward to reading, once I take care of some of my Popular Paperbacks obligations:

The Mislaid Magician: Or Ten Years After by Patricia C. Wrede and Caroline Stevermer

How To Be Popular by Meg Cabot

The Loud Silence of Francine Green by Karen Cushman

Haters by Alisa Valdes-Rodriguez

Fairest by Gail Carson Levine

Wide Awake by David Levithan

River Secrets by Shannon Hale

Add in new books coming soon from Jean Ferris, Avi, Kate Brian, Edward Bloor and Joyce Carol Oates, and you've got an embarrassment of riches.

I know I'm forgetting books, too, which, when you think about it, is both amazing and scary.

If you're interested in any of these books, let me know and I'll be happy to send them out to you right away, unless I want to read them first. :-) Some of these books might also end up on YA ARC, so keep your eyes open there.

    Oh, how funny, because I just listed ARCs over at the Tea Cozy.

    What must I do to get Wide Awake by David Levithan? I'm a singer. I take requests. ;-)

    Liz--as soon as I start reading, I'm going to start posting reviews in my LJ.

    Little Willow--shoot me an email at melinwonderland@yahoo.com, and we can set something up. :-)
