Not that I really need incentive for reading books, but I’m participating in YALSA The Hub’s Reading Challenge.
The challenge is to read at least 25 books from the list of award books recently announced at the ALA Midwinter conference, or as I call it – The Oscars for Book Nerds. Titles include winners or honor titles for the Schneider Family Book Award and the Stonewall Book Award and those on YALSA’s 2014 Best of the Best list (2014 winners and honor books for the Alex Award, Award for Excellence in Nonfiction, Margaret A. Edwards Award, Michael L. Printz Award, Odyssey Award, and William C. Morris Award, as well as the 2014 Top Ten Amazing Audiobooks, Best Fiction, Great Graphic Novels, Popular Paperbacks, and Quick Picks.)
I’ll be starting with the Stonewalls… because reasons.
I’m also hoping to read all the Rainbow List award books, and a whole bunch of our Juvenile Fiction since I’m slightly less well versed in JFic than YA.
And work 2 jobs… and have a life in there somewhere.
Anyway… I’m starting with Beautiful Music for Ugly Children by Kristin Cronn-Mills. I’ll be tracking all the books I read here, and reviewing most of them.
I’d love to hear about the books you’re reading! Leave ’em in the comments.
