Today's question:

Which book is number one on your holiday wish list this year?

Alison: Lola and the Boy Next Door. With Anna and the French Kiss, Stephanie Perkins had me at Beautiful Hallway Boy, her prose is filled with as much flavor as her French cuisine, and the story was AMAZING. So, naturally I can't wait to open up Lola on Christmas day!

Cristin: My wish would be for Philip Pullman's much-anticipated, much-delayed, always-evolving Book of Dust. This would be a big wish, too, since it's not even close to out yet. It started out as a single volume sequel to His Dark Materials, my favorite books ever, and was planned to be released in 2009. Now it's a two volume prequel AND sequel that Pullman will hopefully finish writing in the next couple of years. I WANT IT SO BAD, PLEASE SANTA.

Copil: If holiday wishes are about having dreams come true, then the book I most want under my tree is Escape to Dwerg Mountain. The book is purportedly a sequel to Daniel Pinkwater's Adventures of a Cat-Whiskered Girl which mentions it on the last page. Problem is, it will only be available in an imaginary book store owned by the fictitious Gleybners from Cat-Whiskered Girl. At least I think they're fictitious. . . Hey, if the Gleybners are reading this, PLEASE GET IN TOUCH!

Alexandra: All These Things I've Done by Gabrielle Zevin. The blurb had me at illegal (and poisonous!) chocolate.

Sara: I would love, love, LOVE to unwrap an advanced copy of Andrew Smith's Passenger. It's the followup to The Marbury Lens, a book that unscrewed my head and left me without the means to tighten it again for a long time. But since that's basically impossible, I've gone ahead and purchased myself an early Christmas gift of Stolen: A Letter to my Captor by Lucy Christopher. I can't wait to read it because Cambria has been raving about it, and the girl's got great taste in books.

Cambria: Legend by Marie Lu! I've heard so many great things about this book and I LOVE dystopian, so this is right on top of my wish list for Xmas.

Karen: Existence by Abbi Glines. I loved and adored Meet Joe Black. Existence is about a girl who falls in love with a sexy guy who is...death. Yup, might sound a little morbid, but I have a feeling it's going to be hot and awesome.

Your turn!
