I'm trying to read for fun more. Here's what I read in February:
Are you sensing a theme? You see, I had every intention of waking up early to watch the ALA YMA awards a few weeks ago. My plan, however, was thwarted and I ended up in labor, which, I suppose is a pretty good excuse. I've spent the past few weeks enjoying the 2014 Newbery, Flora & Ulysses, and the rest of the Honor books.
My favorite of the bunch was The Year of Billy Miller; my least favorite, One Came Home. I'm not usually one for historical fiction, so that wasn't much of a surprise. I thought Flora & Ulysses was quirky, cute, and endearing, but didn't grab me as much as The Tale of Despereaux or Because of Winn-Dixie.
I'm off to a great start for March, and I'm planning on chronicling the rest of the books I read this year. Stay tuned!
