Had a great gathering of the YAYAs yesterday for our January meeting. 7 book club members joined me to discuss City of Bones by Cassandra Clare.
This book fulfilled our Fantasy genre of which I am not always the biggest fan. Surprise! I actually really enjoyed it. Everyone, but one (who shall remain nameless) liked it as well. A few have read the entire series.
So far in the Mortal Instruments series, there are three books: City of Bones; City of Ashes; and City of Glass. Cassandra Clare is coming out with a fourth book, City of Fallen Angels, in April 2011.
Be sure to keep tabs on YAYA reads and meeting dates in the right column. Next up is One Tuesday Morning by Karen Kingsbury - of which one YAYA already cannot put it down. It is action/suspense, historical fiction all rolled into one.
We are also looking forward to Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater which will be our March read. Just reading the starred review on it had YAYAs clammoring for our library copies!
Next week on Tuesday, Jan. 11, TPH @ The Bean will be firing up the coffee house with minute poetry! To see some of the fun we had at the December meeting, check out the library's children's webpage at http://www.alexanderlibrary.org/kids.htm and watch "It's Time"! Fun!
Happy New Year!
