I had some health issues that got in my way a bit: http://justaddbooks.blogspot.com/2011/04/life-and-things.html but hopefully I'm back into it now.
For myself, I want to read 12 Kiwi YA novels this year.
Here's my list so far:
Dreamhunter by Elizabeth Knox
Dreamquake by Elizabeth Knox
The Changeover by Margaret Mahy
Genesis by Bernard Beckett
The 10pm Question by Kate deGoldi
The Sea-wreck Stranger by Anna Mckenzie
I haven't reviewed all of them - I rather fell down on reviewing this year, too, but I can say that so far I've enjoyed all of them. The Dreamhunter duo is a favourite of mine, but the real standout so far is The 10pm Question. Here's a summary I found (my memory is a little hazy on the details): http://www.longacre.co.nz/books/10pmQuestion.html and if you read only one Kiwi YA novel this year - it should be that one.
How's everyone else doing? If you have a post, or a review, or just want to pop up and say 'hi' leave me a comment :-)
