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?


  1. Ana completely sold me on Moon Over Manifest too. Hope you enjoy Splendors and Glooms!

  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.
