  1. I also liked RIGHT AS RAIN by Stoddard.

  2. I second (or seventh) New Kid!

    It’s fine to comment on the list of March Suggestions, but if you want to add official Suggestions, I’m afraid you’ll have to wait and submit them in early April when we’ll have a post calling for April Suggestions. Sorry to be sticklers, but doing it this way keeps us somewhat in line with the real Committee’s process….

      Hi….I suggested a couple titles in March that were not included on the totals sheet.

      • Hi, the only comment from you, Sam, is from March 9th — which is after the poll closed. We have to keep to a schedule to keep the suggestions total less chaotic and so both of us could still take care of matters in our day jobs :)

        Please suggest them in April!! Thanks. We value your contribution.

  4. I read New Kid because so many people had suggested it! It was great. My husband read it once and he wants to read it again already!

  5. So many good titles already. I think this is going to be another interesting year. I also liked New Kid.

  6. The Mad Wolf’s Daughter series is excellent (I hope it continues), but the books are equally good. How does one judge one as better than the other?

  7. The first one was last year, so it would not be an issue. They would not be compared to each other at all.
