Sunday Salon: Reading, Read, To Read #17

Happy Sunday! Have you seen the latest edition of the Bookworms Carnival? It's up at Linus's Blanket. You can find out more about upcoming editions here.

And if you love science fiction and fantasy, you need to check out Charlotte's weekly updates.

And what about the Carnegie shortlist? I've read four of the books: Chains by Laurie Halse Anderson, The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman, The Ask and the Answer by Patrick Ness, and Nation by Terry Pratchett. I do want to read Philip Reeve's Fever Crumb. Though the U.S. cover looks nothing like the UK's. Which do you prefer?
