So, how cool is this???
Over on Em's Bookshelf, Em did a series called Meet the Panelists in which she interviewed the Cybil Award panelists she worked with for 2008.
One of the panelists, the (dare-I-say-it?) brilliant Tirzah from The Compulsive Reader listed some of the books she's looking forward to reading in 2009.
Which books did she choose, you ask? Go ahead, ask!
Well, there was Crazy Beautiful by Lauren Baratz-Logsted, The Prophecy of the Sisters by Michelle Zink, The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan. Oh, and was there one other...? Yes. Yes, there was!
The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting!
Are you kidding me?! Even to be mentioned in the same (*gasp*) breath as those other authors?!?!?
Okay, if she's messing with me, I'm in serious pain.
If she's not, I think she might just be my new BFF... <3
