Lists and lists and more lists abound this time of year. Here’s another to make your day. The 2007 Children’s Booksense Picks have been released. These are the books that independent booksellers have reccommended and enjoy handselling. I aspire to have one of my house’s books hit a spot on this list some day. Of all the midgrade/teen books on the list, I’ve read a grand total of 4: The Mysterious Benedict Society, Goose Girl by Shannon Hale (which is incidentally one of my staff recs at the store), Peter and the Starcathers, and Twilight. Of these four, my favorite is definitely Goose Girl.
Thanks to the Not Your Mother’s Book Club for the heads up.
