"Joy"ful. Cute. :)

We have two of the same titles. It'll be fun to compare. I've really enjoyed entering the YA world of reading. I'm thinking we have a fun adventure ahead of us. I hope you enjoy it.

I also have Magyk in my closet. One day I'll get to it. I really enjoy reading young adult books at times.

I am really looking forward to this challenge. I picked a different book by Lois Lowry and Terry Pratchett to read which should be fun. The Silver Chair is my favourite of the Narnia series so I hope you enjoy it. The Last Battle is a bit weird, but still good. I look forward to reading all your reviews.

I've read the first 3 Septimus Heap books beginning with Magyk.. book 4 is on the way.. these were fun reading, and I'm looking forward to book 4! I hope you enjoy Magyk!

I'm glad you've got some Pratchett in there. Have your read the two books that come before Wintersmith, though?

I just read Gossamer, today actually. It is strange and haunting. I also recommend The Penderwicks by Jeanne Birdsall and A Crooked Kind of Perfect by Linda Urban, if you are interested in additional titles.

I'm sure this will be a very popular challenge. Young Adult books are a popular genre and most are easy to read. You have picked some wonderful books as usual booklogged...I can't wait for the reviews! I must recommend "Gossamer" to my 12-year old (you met her, remember?) :)
