Summer Break Reading Challenge #4

http://summerbreakreadingchallenge.blogspot.com/

Scavenger Hunt:
1. A blog that is new to you that focuses on the same type of literature you do (ex: I read YA so the blog would need to focus on YA). Well, I am not much for going and looking at random blogs. I looked through Kidlitospher(http://www.kidlitosphere.org/bloggers/) and there are a lot of great blogs out there. I will have to check them out further. Plus my blog with Karin http://www.edifyingandedgy.com/ is on there which is pretty darn cool. Also my blog http://gravesok.wordpress.com/ (my only vice) is on there.  So anyway, check it out.

2. A book that is new to you that another blogger reviewed. Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare(http://www.karinsbooknook.com/2010/06/28/clockwork-angel-by-cassandra-clare-review/)

3. A book set in Africa (in your preferred age category, if possible). I like all age categories. So this is one of my favorite "grown-up" authors.

4. A book about a human/animal bond (in your preferred age category, if possible). My favorite is Because of WinnDix ie by Kate DiCamillo

5. A book trailer for a book you want to read. Only the Good Spy Young by Ally Carter(I have it ordered!)http://allycarter.abeedoo.com/blog/trailer

6. A book with a color in the title (in your preferred age category, if possible). Suite Scarlett by Maureen Johnson

7. A blog that is new to you that is dedicated to a certain genre (ex: only books about vampires, only historical fiction, only urban fantasy, etc.)A christian book blog(http://christianbooklounge.com/ )

8. A book blog maintained by a librarian.http://www.thebookjacket.com/

9. A book blog maintained by a teacher.http://www.edifyingandedgy.com/

10. The title of an upcoming book by an author you like (provide details - title, release date, synopsis).

Only The Good Spy Young by Ally Carter. It came out June 29th, but I haven't gotten it in the mail yet. I can't wait to read it. Here is Amazon's synopsis:When Cammie Morgan enrolled at the Gallagher Academy, she knew she was preparing for the dangerous life of a spy. What she didn’t know was that the serious, real-life danger would start during her junior year of high school. But that’s exactly what happened two months ago when Cammie faced off against an ancient terrorist organization dead set on kidnapping her.

Now the danger follows her everywhere, and even Cammie “The Chameleon” can’t hide.  When a terrifying encounter in London reveals that one of her most-trusted allies is actually a rogue double-agent, Cammie no longer knows if she can trust her classmates, her teachers—or even her own heart.

 In this fourth installment of the New York Times best-selling series, the Gallagher Girls must hack, spy, steal, and lie their way to the truth.as they go searching for answers, recognizing that the key to Cammie’s future may lie deep in the past.
