Over at Chasing Ray you’ll find a bunch of lists of upcoming book that will make for some happy browsing and much rejoicing, compiled by the best of the best kidslit bloggers out there. I could spend way too long bouncing about from one blog to another, writing down all of the beautiful books that will be popping up very soon.

So here are a few that I’m itching to get my hands on:

These two would be in the “I’m crazy about this author and will read whatever they write next” category:

housedance-hc-c.jpg House of Dance – Beth Kephart

These two would be in the “I’m insanely jealous of people who’ve already got these ARCs” category:

dec_willoughbys.jpg The Willoughbys – Lois Lowry

These two would be in the “Desperate for the Sequel” category:

Janes in Love – Cecil Castellucci

And finally, in the “Guaranteed to be Brilliant” Category:

So much for the “read more books with male protagonists and/or books written by men” reading goal for 2008. How’s 1 out of 7? I’ll have to keep working on that one.
