  1. This looks like a lot of reading to me! I"m looking forward to reading a couple of these books Winter Bees & Other Poems of the Cold, and West of the Moon. I loved both The Boundless and The Ghosts of Tupelo Landing.

  2. Oh - so many titles I want to comment on. I read Complicit recently - what a book. Enjoy The Boundless and Ghosts of Tupelo Landing - both were favourite MG titles for me during 2014. Isn't Winter Bees incredible?! The art, the poetry, the science . . .

  3. Oh wow, that's a LOT of reading! I enjoyed Shaun Tan's latest picture book - as always. He can do no wrong in my eyes. Been meaning to get my hands on Josephine. The Tony Johnston book, I have to find soon - looks luminous.
