April pick

Here we are again, needing to choose a book for next month before we've even talked about this month's book (it's now at the top of my library pile, so there's hope I'll get to it soon). I keep hearing about A Curse Dark as Gold by Elizabeth C. Bunce. It's a Rumpelstiltskin retelling. It's also nearly 400 pages long. Too long? It sounds interesting, and I know people wanted to read more than just realistic fiction. Any other suggestions? Anything else going on, YA-wise, that you want to post about, discuss, rant about?

I JUST read A Curse Dark As Gold, so that choice works for me! It is indeed long but I found it rewarding.

Oops, that was me -- Rebecca R. I just started a children's lit LJ if anyone wants to wander over there and join in. :)

There is nothing I enjoy more than a good fairytale retelling, and since I've started babysitting I have a lot of time for reading- so count me in.
