I'm standing for the 2019 Newbery Committee! Check my Sondy for Newbery! page to find out why you should vote for me!
Announcing the 2016 Sonderbooks Stand-outs! These are my personal favorites of all the books I read in 2016.
A 2016 Sonderbooks Stand-out and a 2016 Cybils Finalist, The Keeper of the Mist, by Rachel Neumeier, is a traditional fantasy done imaginatively and done well about a teenager trying to run the bakery she inherited, who suddenly becomes the ruler of the kingdom just as its magic is failing.
I went to ALA Midwinter Meeting last month, and posted about my adventures and what I learned.
