It’s time for our first #MustReadin2019 update!
Are you making progress with your list? Distracted by other titles? Please share!
This year, my list is again 30 titles strong. I always have the goal of trying to read at least 20 of the books on the list. I have completed 15 of the 30 titles on my list so half way there!
Since the last update, I have completed these 6 books.
The Size of the Truth by Andrew Smith
Andrew Smith and middle grade? Yes, please. Such a read. Just love his characters and his brain.
The Remarkable Journey of Coyote Sunrise by Dan Gemeinhart
A story of grief and a whole lot of humanity. Beautiful book.
The Lost Girl by Anne Ursu
Kind of creepy. Part magic, part harsh reality, unbelievable and completely relatable. Devastating and full of hope. Wow.
The Dollar Kids by Jennifer Richard Jacobson
Such an interesting subject for a novel. A former mill town needs to attract residents to keep its schools and town from completely shutting down. A number of homes are offered to families for just $1.00 if they meet criteria and comply with specific conditions over the next year. This is the perfect chance for Lowen and his family to have a new beginning and more opportunities. It’s also a way for Lowen to try to leave behind the memories of a young friend who was shot. Would be a fantastic middle grade read aloud.
Hey, Kiddo by Jarrett J. Krosoczka
This is a tough one. But so glad it was shared.
The Bridge Home by Padma Venkatraman
I shed more than one tear with this title. Definitely a must read book.
