- Best Writing: Peeled by Joan Bauer
Okay, here's me shocked for the second time today, well, yesterday. *Shocked* I kind of thought that Gone would win by a landslide, but apparently not, if I really thought about it. Gone by Michael Grant, didn't really have one main character, just a ton of them, and I really liked Hildy's confidence and attitude. Gone had the best plot by far. It was close for the setting, but since Gone was at a beach and Hildy was at a town full of apple's with a ghost in town, I went with Gone. The only thing Peeled won for Best Writing is because Grant used third person, which I'm not a fan of, as you probably know by now, and Bauer didn't so that's the only reason, but really I think Gone is a much, much, much better story overall and would recommend that story, whereas with Peeled I wouldn't necessarily recommend but if you happen to come across it in the library, I'd say pick it up.
This next week I plan to read Where People Like Us Live and maybe hopefully I'll get Sleepless, or Invisible Touch or Fabulous Terrible in the mail and read that, because I doubt I'll be able to read Shrimp and Cupcake before I have to return them to the library. But hopefully I'll also be able to find Pretty Things by Sarra Manning at my school library this week and get that to read soon.
Ohh, I just checked the books at the library that I requested and noticed that I not only have Where People Like Us Live by Patricia Cumbie but also Harmless by Dana Reinhardt! Yeah, Now I'll have those to read also! I just have to get to the library now. Before they go and send the books off again, hopefully tomorrow because, obviously today is Labor Day, well, yesterday was. Oh, and I'm getting In Your Room by Jordanna Frailberg sometime soon too.
But, yeah, that's about it. Don't forget to enter my hundredth post contest! It ends this Friday!
