I am joining this year’s hosts Girlxoxo and Traveling with T for their annual #AMonthofFaves blog event. They have a schedule of topics planned, so bloggers can join in anytime for some or all of the topics.
Winter ReadsI don't tend to read "holiday" books or books that fit the season. This is what last winter looked like...
In December of last year, I read one winter-related book, One Day in December, but I also read some inspirational books: Educated, Becoming, A Very Large Expanse of Sea, Speak (graphic novel), and This is How it Always Is.
As a second round judge for the CYBIL Awards, I read a bunch of YA, middle grade, and elementary graphic novels. Participating in that process is so much fun and I am looking forward to participating again as a second round judge, but for YA fiction this time.
I also read Hero Dogs, one of my favorite books of this past year and I read my brother's first novel, Fire Priest, which felt really special.
This year feels about the same, but I've been reading less. I hope that my upcoming Winter break will fix that.
