It's very frustrating because I've finished 10 Cents a Dance and Rogelia's House of Magic and I really want to write the reviews but I haven't had any time this week! I'm determined to publish some reviews and type up others and have them ready!
I have time to wait for books though. This week I'm waiting on...
Gateway by Sharon Shinn
Release Date: Oct. 15, 2009
As a Chinese adoptee in St. Louis, teenage Daiyu often feels out of place. When an elderly Asian jewelry seller at a street fair shows her a black jade ring—and tells her that “black jade” translates to “Daiyu”—she buys it as a talisman of her heritage. But it’s more than that; it’s magic. It takes Daiyu through a gateway into a version of St. Louis much like 19th century China. Almost immediately she is recruited as a spy, which means hours of training in manners and niceties and sleight of hand. It also means stealing time to be with handsome Kalen, who is in on the plan. There’s only one problem. Once her task is done, she must go back to St. Louis and leave him behind forever. . .
I'm so intrigued by the idea of reading about a Chinese spy!
Thanks everyone for all the MG suggestions, I've got some good titles to check out :)
