My favorite YA book to read for the holidays (actually, for the first of said holidays, the one we Americans celebrate tomorrow) is A Swiftly Tilting Planet by Madeline L'Engle. It takes place over Thanksgiving, and just has such a lovely message of hope.

I'd like to read The Maze Runner over break. I've been looking forward to it for a while.

Wow, what a great giveaway, and that collage is just LUSCIOUS!

Savvy by Ingrid Law reminds me of the holidays because of all the family craziness. Also, being from the Midwest, every mention of "Kansaska-Nebransas" makes me laugh :)

!!!!! *GLEE*

oh, my goodness, what a smorgasbord! pick me, pick meee! [-O<

What MG/YA fantasy would you like to read over the holiday break?

I have a whole slew of books in my backlog that I've bought but haven't had a chance to read, yet! Giving Up the Ghost and Ash are probably vying for the number one slot, but I'm also looking forward to reading my first Tamora Pierce!

What fantasy book most reminds you of the Holiday or New Year season?

oh, i love this question! Even though there aren't any holidays per se, Good Omens is very Christmas-ish to me with all its getting-you-to-think-about-God-and-humanity business. For the same reason, A Wrinkle in Time has always been a holiday favorite for me as well. :)

Good luck to everyone and congratulations to you guys! I haven't commented much in the last year but I have really enjoyed reading all the Q&As and interviews here during the last year! Here's to great things for 2010. :)

Books, books and more glorious books!
Books have always been on my holiday list- to give and receive! This would be a perfect gift for either!

I'd like to read Ash by Malinda Lo or Silver Phoenix by Cindy Pon.

What fantasy book most reminds you of the Holiday or New Year season?
I always end up reading the Black Jewels Trilogy by Anne Bishop.

What MG/YA fantasy would you like to read over the holiday break?

Book of a Thousand Days, I like to read about underdogs (and underlings) who rise to the occasion when called upon. And I always like it when they find true love. :)


What fantasy book most reminds you of the Holiday or New Year season?

The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe. 1stly, b/c it starts with a never-ending winter; 2ndly, b/c Santa is part of the story and heralds the breakup of winter; and 3rdly, b/c as a kid, I saw an animated movie of same as a Christmas special and it left an indelible mark forever after.

What MG/YA fantasy would you like to read over the holiday break? What fantasy book most reminds you of the Holiday or New Year season?

I'm hoping to re-read the first two books of the Triskelia Series by Carrie Mac. And then move on to the third book. Also going to read Graceling by Kristen Cashore!

As for a book that reminds me of the Holiday season... any of Tamora Pierce's books as they feature midwinter festivals and gift-giving... :)

I just started THE MAZE RUNNER, and I also have THE HUNGER GAMES to read.

Either THE LION, THE WITCH, AND THE WARDROBE or the ARROWS OF THE QUEEN trilogy by Mercedes Lackey

What YA book am I looking forward to reading over the holidays?

Aside from not really having much of a holiday break and recovering from Nanowrimo, I guess I am looking at either Soul Enchilada or Shiver. I have had both since ALA and have not managed to get to them. And since Dead Tossed Waves and the Silver Phoenix sequel have yet to come out... ;)

What fantasy book reminds me of the holiday season?

Probably the Harry Potter books for the worst reason. Between each book being a school year and the visuals from the movies (especially around the holidays), it has seemed to solidify that book as seeming very holiday-oriented.
