In My Mailbox

Oh, I know, I am so late with this. But I have an excuse - I was away for the weekend. Last week? It was my birthday, I celebrated ( a lot), we hosted the wonderful Alyson Noel, and we're hosting the amazingly talented Anthony Horowitz on Friday March 25th at 7.00. He's here to talk about Scorpia Rising, which will end this long-running and so very popular series. It has so many twists,things you just can't see coming. Can't wait.

Books? I only two YA titles this week:

1. Welcome to Bordertown
Edited by Holly Black and Ellen Kushner
Bordertown: a city on the Border between the human world and the elfin realm. 13 interconnected stories, one graphic story and eight poems by some of the best urban fantasy and fantasy writers around: Holly Black, Cassandra Clare, Charles de Lint, Cory Doctorow, Neil Gaiman, Annette Curtis Klaus, Ellen Kushner, Will Shetterly, Janni Lee Simmons, Jane Yolen and many more

2. Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma
Love knows no bounds...
Seventeen-year-old Lochan and sixteen-year-old Maya have always felt more like friends than siblings. Together they have stepped in for their alcoholic, wayward mother to take care of their three younger siblings. As defacto parents to the little ones, Lochan and Maya have had to grow up fast. And the stress of their lives--and the way they understand each other so completely--has also also brought them closer than two siblings would ordinarily be. So close, in fact, that they have fallen in love. Their clandestine romance quickly blooms into deep, desperate love. They know their relationship is wrong and cannot possibly continue. And yet, they cannot stop what feels so incredibly right. As the novel careens toward an explosive and shocking finale, only one thing is certain: a love this devastating has no happy ending.

How was your week?
