Candlewick Press makes TIME Magazine's TOP 100 of ALL TIME! - GIVEAWAY!

Hi guys!
Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.

Today, we're throwing a CELEBRATION as we've been made privy to some rather EXCITING news that readers such as you and you and even YOU, over there in the corner pretending not to read this, will want to know!   It stars a few fabulous titles from the one and only CANDLEWICK PRESS and well, let's read it from the horses mouth...




One of the most prominent news magazines in the U.S., TIME magazine, has declared we are living in a “golden age” of children’s and young adult books. A claim supported by ongoing sales reports that books for young readers and teens continue to dominate the bestseller charts and lead industry growth as they find wide audiences beyond their intended age demographics.

With the assistance of industry experts, reviewers, and major literacy non-profits, TIME has compiled a list to honor the all-time classics, both old and new.

Candlewick Press, a leading independent children’s book publisher based near Boston, Massachusetts, is proud to announce ten titles from its publishing list have been selected for inclusion – all remarkable works of writing and illustrating – that have established themselves as enduring favorites via critical and commercial success. Both National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature, Kate DiCamillo, and celebrated novelist, Patrick Ness, have the remarkable achievement of having two of their works selected. Candlewick’s titles include:

I haven't read any of the YA books (gasp!), but I've read all the picture books. I am really interested in The Tiger Rising. I've heard good things about it and the premise is interesting. Thanks for the giveaway!

traveler said...

The books are all fabulous. What a great feature. Thanks. A Monster Calls looks captivating. saubleb(at)gmail(dot)com

Beth said...

The one that interests me the most is the Knife of Never Letting Go b/c it looks really intriguing.


For me I would choose A Monster Calls. It sounds dark and sinister and I love that in a novel. Very much looking forward to that one.

fredamans said...

I haven't read any of them, yet. I am interested in them all but would start with Patrick Ness's book. It is one I have read nothing but rave reviews about so I am thoroughly intrigued.

Anne Murphy said...

Congratulations Patrick Ness and everyone else!

Barbara S said...

tiger rising is the one of special interest to me. I feel it will show the strength one has against great adversity.

Linda M. said...
