The Weekly Wanting (18)

Well, thanks to some excellent progress with NaNoWriMo, I have time for a Weekly Wanting post! Enjoy!


Genre: Middle Grade, Historical.
Cover Snark: Actually a pretty decent cover, can't complain.
The Story: A girl in the 1930s is sent to live with a friend of her father's in the small town of Manifest. While she initially thinks the town is just some lame backwater, she discovers a whole host of secrets to explore.
Why I Want It? Reason the First - Newbury Medal winner. Reason the Second - Small Town Secrets are my literary crack. Reason the Third - a fab review from the Booksmugglers!


Genre: YA, Fantasy, Historical.
Cover Snark: "You're a wee little puppet man!" 
The Story: A girl with death-obsessed parents + evil magician + two plucky orphans + Victorian setting = funtimes!
Why I Want It? Consider it giving in. I was only mildly interested when the book first came out but the good reviews have been so constant and detailed that I can't help but want to read it now!

And what books are you guys eagerly wanting this week?

  2. Yes, on Moon Over Manifest. I want it too! I got her second book on Netgalley for review and I hope that is good too. If it is, I will probably buy this one.

    I am still on the fence about Splendors and Glooms. I sort of want to read it but I am not sure I will like it. We'll see.

    I kinda love this feature.
