2012 Children's Book Reviews

Publishers Weekly blog has published the reviews for the 2012 children’s books. Here is the long list.
You’re going to enjoy viewing these beautifully-organized-home libraries. Wish mine looked as neat as the ones on the apartment therapy. I guess that’s why they call it “therapy.” Those libraries look so cozy and warm. One can just imagine sitting there and reading all day. Some people are so darn creative. 
I absolutely plan to buy Ruta Sepetys’ new book, Out of the Easy, because I so enjoyed her previous one, Between Shades of Gray, (not the other one). I met her at one of the SCBWI-LA conferences. The historical fiction, Between Shades, is set in Lithuania during the war. Sepetys did a magnificent job on that book. I wish her the best with this new one. Here’s an interview with Sepetys on the Publishers Weekly blog.
