I Want To Read More

Jump to Comments

I’ve written before about how I used to be a voracious reader, how I used to read more than write. Last year I read more than I have since the craziness of two kids set in, but it still wasn’t as much as I’d like.

Monday morning I watched twitter explode as the Mock Printz awards were announced. I clicked on title after title and thought, “I want to read that.” And I was surprised by the fact that I hadn’t even heard of so many of the titles. I love Young Adult fiction – it is addictive and easy and a true escape for me. So, I decided to tweet a friend, a fellow reader, to see if she was down with my crazy idea. She was (not surprisingly – I think she likes reading and YA even more than I do).

So I am going to try to read all 48 of the Mock Printz winners. That’s my 2015 reading goal.

I started with Gabi, a Girl in Pieces and so far so good. I can tell this will be a book I will recommend to many many students. It is well-written and offers a diverse picture that a lot of YA doesn’t. I’ll let you know what I think after I finish it.

Reading all 48 books will be a huge challenge for me, but I’m going to try. Off to read…
