I am a round 2 judge for the Cybils, so I have a few books that I'll definitely be reading this month:
- Chomp - This is my first novel by Carl Hiaasen. I'm almost finished with this one.
- Liar & Spy - I loved Rebecca Stead's When You Reach Me (linked to my review), so I'm pretty sure this one won't disappoint.
- Wonder has received a bunch of buzz, and even before it was selected as a finalists, I had downloaded it to my Kindle hoping I'd get a chance to read it soon.
The thing I love about reading Middle Grade novels (well, ONE thing) is that I can generally get through one within a couple of reading sessions. It's so satisfying! So getting through the 7 finalists in about 6 weeks is no problem at all. Here are some other books I'm hoping to get to for upcoming review:
- I'm about halfway through The Tragedy Paper, a YA book that I'm thoroughly enjoying.
- I've loved everything I've read from Jennifer Haigh, so I definitely wanted to read her new book of interconnected short stories, News from Heaven: The Bakerton Stories.
- I'm so happy to be a part of the Sony VIP Reader program, and in February, I'll be able to be a part of a live bookclub chat in LA with author Michael Connelly on The Black Box (A Harry Bosch Novel).
- Fuse is the sequel to Pure (linked to my review). It comes out about this time next month, so I may or may not get to it before next month's Nightstand.
- I've also received some unsolicited review copies that look great, so I'm hoping to get to at least one of them: The Typewriter Girl and Crossing on the Paris.
