  1. A picture speaks a thousand words! I’ve heard of Yo! Yes! but haven’t read it yet. Looks like fun. I’m so glad you loved A Monster Calls and can’t wait to hear what you thought. And I think The Mighty Miss Malone looks awesome. Happy reading!


  2. Very excited about The Mighty Miss Malone coming out this week!
    This week, I’m reading The Berlin Boxing Club by Robert Sharenow and… well, I’m not sure. I’m about to head to the library, so we’ll see. 🙂


  3. Monster Calls and MIghty Miss Malone are on my TBR list. I give you great props for trying all these Newbery titles, but for me it would be a hard sell to add the two you shared this week to my stack. Too many books I want to read that I think I would enjoy to read some of the Newbery winners you have listed to the right.


  4. Christpher Paul Curtis is such fabulous author – Mighty Miss Malone is on our historical fiction book club wish list…I can’t wait to read this one! I’d love to read your thoughts about The Dark Frigate – an unusual time period for YA, but we cover this in Social Studies and my kids will like to read more about this. Thanks!


    1. I am listening to the audio version of The Dark Frigate, and it is a struggle. I’m sure that I would do much better with reading the book. My lack of prior knowledge on the subject is holding me back.


  5. I read A Crooked Kind of Perfect when I was on jury duty (waiting to be called) and had to stop myself from bursting out laughing in the silent room. Linda Urban was one of my favorite author visits. I love her story about her magic mirror.

    I like the way your sorted your books!


  6. I love Yo, Yes! as well. It’s one I share with students as an example of brevity of text – such a big story with so few words!
    The Mighty Miss Malone is on my shelf and I’m looking forward to it. I just looked at Crooked Kind of Perfect at our library, it’s going on my future list since this is the first week of classes.
