So one of the downsides to being a YA librarian is that I see all of the new books coming out and want to read them ALL. Ha, ok, who am I kidding? That’s not really a downside at all. 🙂
Here are the books I’m trying to read right now.
I think 12 of those books are from my library. Sorry local teens. I’m trying to read more of the new books so I can booktalk them at the two book groups I go to once a month. I’m not doing a great job so far. I end up saying a lot of “This is another book that we just got. I haven’t gotten to read it yet, but…” At least I admit that I haven’t read them. That’s good, right?
And yes, there are 3 Maureen Johnson books in that pile. Because she’s going to Skype with us next month!! I really need to read more of her books – so far I’ve only read 2.
Hmm, I’m going to try to read a lot this weekend. Hopefully I can finish one or two of these at least!
P.S. Has anyone read Incarceron yet? According to the blog & journal worlds, it’s the greatest book to hit YA since The Hunger Games & Graceling/Fire. I’m about halfway in and disagree. So far it’s just leaving me confused. 😦
