I am excited to be a part of the conversation at #IMWAYR! Thank you to Sheila, Jen and Kellee for inspiring and hosting this meme.
It feels like crunch time for me as a reader on the Maine Student Book Award Committee. The committee meets in January to put together a short list and I still have quite a few books that I want to get my hands on before that. It's an exciting time because everyone is publishing their "best of" 2013 lists and of course I want to read every title on every list!
|Rec. for grades K-5|
|Rec. for grades 4-6|
|Rec. for grades 6-8|
Finally, I have to end with a plug for the book that I am currently in the midst of: The Twistrose Key. It is beautiful and haunting and I can't wait to get back to it (yes, I was hoping for a snow day today so I could stay home and read).
