Vintage Reads: Books for the Voting 2012


Welcome to the new year, everyone. Hope ya'll had a fantastic and safe holiday.

As I was preparing the first post of the year for Vintage Reads I came to the realization that themes are incredible hard to come up with, especially to keep them from getting stale. So in order to keep this feature from being repetitive I have deiced that there will no longer be any themed months...okay except for leading into Halloween because it so deserves a special set of books to choose from.

So for now on, I will just randomly select three to four books from my personal collection, and ya'll can vote and choose which one you would like to see reviewed on the blog. I also may have to make this an every other month feature just so I can have time to read and review the winning book.

Now that I have probably bored you to tears, lets get down to why we are all here. To pick an older YA book to be reviewed on ye olde blog. I've already read all three of the books-just not in a long time- so I'll be excited by which ever book ya'll pick out.

This months book selection is-

A Wrinkle in Time (Time quartet, 1) by Madeleine L'Engle, 1962.
Everyone in town thinks Meg is volatile and dull-witted and that her younger brother Charles Wallace is dumb. People are also saying that their father has run off and left their brilliant scientist mother. Spurred on by these rumors, Meg and Charles Wallace, along with their new friend Calvin, embark on a perilous quest through space to find their father. In doing so they must travel behind the shadow of an evil power that is darkening the cosmos, one planet at a time.
The Wind Singer (Wind on Fire, 1) by William Nicholson, 1990.
After Kestrel Hath rebels against the stifling rules of Amaranth society and is forced to flee, she, along with her twin brother and a tagalong classmate, follow an ancient map in quest of the legendary silver voice of the wind singer, in an attempt to heal Amaranth and its people.
Inside the Shadow City (Kiki Strike, 1) by Kirsten Miller, 2006.
Life will never be the same for Ananka Fishbein after she ventures into an enormous sinkhole near her New York City apartment. A million rats, delinquent Girl Scouts out for revenge, and a secret city below the streets of Manhattan combine in this remarkable novel about a darker side of New York City you have only just begun to know about…

Since I probably should have posted this in December, ya'll have till January 31st to vote. Winning book will be read in February.
