Nicole Maggi: I just finished THE FUTURE OF US by Jay Asher and Carolyn Mackler and thoroughly enjoyed it. I saw Jay last weekend at the SCBWI Conference so it was fun to talk to him about it. Also at the conference, I picked up a copy of CHAINS by Laurie Halse Anderson and just started it. WOW. I just think Laurie is such an amazing writer and artist and any book of hers is a privilege to read.
Danny Marks: Kelly Creagh's NEVERMORE is winning the race for my attention this week. Love the literary mix-in of Poe and creepy supernatural happenings, along with the odd pairing of cheerleader/goth boy. I'm nearly finished reading Aravind Adiga's THE WHITE TIGER for my book club. It took a while to get into but then something happens at about the 50% mark that has me wide-eyed and spellbound.
Kathleen Peacock: I'm halfway through ICE by Sarah Beth Durst and LOVING it. It's a modern spin on the the Norwegian fairy tale East of the Sun and West of the Moon and it's seriously rekindling my fairy tale love.
Gina Rosati: I read BAD TASTE IN BOYS by Carrie Harris this week ... it's a fun, fast read with tons of teen appeal! I'm currently a few pages into an ARC of our very own Sarvenaz Tash's THE MAPMAKER AND THE GHOST and I'm already hooked!!!!
Jessica Spotswood: I'm reading Maureen Johnson's THE NAME OF THE STAR. It's full of her trademark wit, I've laughed out loud like a loon several times, and yet I'm also creeped out by the ghoulish Jack-the-Ripper-style murders taking place. Can't wait to find out what happens next!
What about you guys? What's on your nightstand this week?
