Fall Reading (just a list, no reviews)

So here’s something I learned this past fall–it’s very difficult to keep up with your blog during the semester. I’m going to try to be better this spring, but honestly, it’ll probably be pretty spotty coverage until May. Also, last semester I took a class on picture books and this semester I’m in a middle grade lit class, so much of my reading has been the kind that doesn’t really fit within the scope of my blog. That being said, here’s what I read this fall…if it’s on the list, consider it a book I’d recommend.

Sex & Violence, Carrie Mesrobian (YA Realistic Fiction)

Two Boys Kissing, David Levithan (YA Realistic Fiction)

Rats Saw God, Rob Thomas (a reread, see my Top Ten YA Books post for a rundown of this one)

Fosse, Sam Wasson (Biography)

Finnikin of the Rock, Melina Marchetta (YA Fantasy)

Froi of the Exiles, Melina Marchetta (YA Fantasy)

Dead End in Norvelt, Jack Gantos (Middle Grade Historical Fiction)

Boxers & Saints, Gene Luen Yang (YA Graphic Novel)

Grave Mercy, Robin LaFevers (YA Historical Fantasy)

While school is going on, I don’t finish books I don’t like…so all of these have my stamp of approval 🙂
