The Pull of Gravity by Gae Polisner- Great contemporary YA that I think will be very popular with me freshman!
A Monster Calls: Inspired by an idea from Siobhan Dowd by Patrick Ness- Oh, oh, oh. There are no words. Still wiping tears from my eyes.

Tropical Secrets: Holocaust Refugees in Cuba by Margarita Engle- Great verse novel. I learned a lot!
Purple Daze by Sherry Shahan- Like a verse novel version of my favorite musical, Hair. Great for older teen readers.
Liar, Liar: The Theory, Practice and Destructive Properties of Deception by Gary Paulsen- A book that will have you laughing out loud!
Once Was Lost by Sara Zarr-A book that’s been on my TBR pile for ages. Why did I wait so long to read it?!

#48hbc And I’m Off!

And so it begins….

48 Hour Book Challenge- My favorite weekend!

This coming weekend is on that I look forward to all year long.  Why is that?  Because I spend a good portion of the weekend curled up with my books and my towering “to be read” pile, tearing through as many books as possible.  It’s like a dream come true!  The reason for this wonderful time?  MotherReader’s 48 Hour Book Challenge!

This year marks the Sixth Annual 48 Hour Book Challenge and I am thrilled to be participating once again.  Want to join in? Sign up in the comments on MotherReader’s post.  According to the rules, “Read and blog for any 48-hour period within the Friday-to-Monday-morning window. Start no sooner than 7:00 a.m. on Friday the third and end no later than 7:00 a.m. Monday the sixth.”  It doesn’ t matter how long you devote to reading- what matters is making the effort to set aside time during those 48 hours to read!

So will you join me?
