Well heck, if we all didn't like the same books every time we wouldn't have much to talk about here would we? I've seen situations where I've got fellow readers who step in line with my tastes 99.9% of the time and then all of a sudden I'm wondering if I read the same book and.........








I find it's making The List! :D :D :D

Some news from Jennifer Donnelly!
I've been working on two books at once and I'm happy to say that I've finished one of them -- a new young adult novel. More on that in the coming weeks, as it's still in the editing process, and I hate talking about unfinished work, but I will say it was the hardest book I've written, both in terms of subject matter and structure.

I'm also working away on The Wild Rose. It's due into the publisher June 2010 and I'm on track to hit that deadline, so it should be published in late 2010 or early 2011.

I can't wait for the Wild Rose to be done and then she can focus on something different. I just can't stand that series and will be glad to see it go.

As for the YA book last I knew it was a time travel book. (blah) so its not my thing. I really wish she would start writing more YA again like A Northern Light. That was a masterpiece.

Hi Misfit - I recognize your clever monniker. I loved Jennifer Donnelly's books - Northern Ligh, The Tea Rose and The Wild Rose. I was hoping she was going to continue the Rose books but I now have her latest, Revolution waiting in my stacks.

Nancy, lol yes there was a run on that book and available used copies are now priced through the roof. Do try your library and ask them about interlibrary loan. There are libraries in the US with copies - including mine - and King County does participate in interlibrary loan.

Still waiting to hear back from net galley if I get my hands on the Donnelly book or not. I just now heard back today on the other I requested so perhaps it takes a while. Or my account is so new.

According to the author's website, The Wild Rose will be published in October in the US. I seem to have been waiting for it for years. I wonder if and when it will be published in the UK.

Seems to me The Winter Rose was published first in the UK, I purchased it there and it was quite sometime after that I became available in the US.
