Auggie's Pick


Title: The Pinhoe Egg

Author:  Diana Wynne Jones
Genre: Middlegrade Fantasy
Pages:  515
Publication Date: October 3, 2006

Cat Chant and Marianne Pinhoe have discovered something exciting--something truly precious, very strange, and valuable. An egg.

An egg that has been hidden away in an attic for who-knows-how-many years. An egg protected by some strong "Don't Notice" spells. An egg that Marianne gives to Cat, even though he lives at nearby Chrestomanci Castle. Chrestomanci himself, the strongest enchanter in the world, is sure to be interested in the egg--and interference from the Big Man is the last thing Marianne's family of secret rogue witches wants.

But how much longer can the Pinhoes keep their secrets? Gammer, the leaderof the clan, has gone mad, a powerfulbad luck spell is wreaking havoc, and there's an unexplained plague of frogs.Not to mention the mysterious barrierCat finds in the forest.

Marianne and Cat may be the only two who can set things right. But first Marianne must accept her own powerful magic, and Cat must uncover the secrets behind the mystical Pinhoe Egg.

In this new Chrestomanci book, Diana Wynne Jones is at her most magical.

Why It's On My List: 
Diana Wynne Jones, you say? Well of COURSE it's on my wishlist! I had this book at one point and between moving here and there it got lost somehow and I haven't seen it and I was only a couple of chapters in, darn it! So now I'm on the prowl for this book so I can finish up all of those Christopher Chant stories. Want it! Must...finish....this....series!

Tori's Pick


Title: Storm Front

Author:  Jim Butcher
Genre: Paranormal/Fantasy
Pages: 322
Publication Date: April 1, 2000

Harry Dresden -- Wizard

Lost items found. Paranormal Investigations.
Consulting. Advice. Reasonable Rates.
No Love Potions, Endless Purses, or
Other Entertainment.

Harry Dresden is the best at what he does. Well, technically, he’s the only at what he does. So when the Chicago P.D. has a case that transcends mortal creativity or capability, they come to him for answers. For the “everyday” world is actually full of strange and magical things — and most of them don’t play well with humans. That’s where Harry comes in. Takes a wizard to catch a — well, whatever.

There’s just one problem. Business, to put it mildly, stinks. So when the police bring him in to consult on a grisly double murder committed with black magic, Harry’s seeing dollar signs. But where there’s black magic, there’s a black mage behind it. And now that mage knows Harry’s name. And that’s when things start to get… interesting.

Magic. It can get a guy killed.

Why It's On My List:
I have been told, by almost every friend, that this is the series for me. Harry's a sarcastic wizard. Really, need I say more than that? Well, maybe just a little more... sci-fi, murder, mystery... I'm game!!

So What's on your wishlist?
