Book List Extravaganza

The Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) has released its list of Best Books for Young Adults 2005. Also, the American Booksellers Association released its list of 2005 Book Sense Book of the Year Award Winners in Adult and Children's literature. Not surprisingly, Nancy Farmer's new one made it onto both lists.

Did you read The Sea of Trolls? I did... it was actually kind of a retelling of myth -- all rolled into a mythic journey tale. I didn't find it as satisfying as her last book (The Tale of the Scorpion? The Eye of the Scorpion? Oh dear, I know I'm hopelessly mixing the titles of TWO of her novels here...), but it was pretty good. I did read a most EXCELLENT book, though -- The Hollow Kingdom. A MUST read for future fantasy writers.
