Sometimes I have been known to write down some memorable moments of the exiting year. It was kind of a rough one, so I'll skip that but will be happy to make note of several fantastic books that I had the pleasure of reading for my teen lit class. Required reading that always felt like I was sluffing on my homework even though it was my homework; ain't life grand?
In no particular order here are some recommended reading for the new year if anyone is reading this blog:
1. The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing, Traitor to the Nation: Vol. I, The Pox Party, M.T. Anderson
2. Feed, also by Anderson
3. The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, Sherman Alexie
4. Tangerine, Edward Bloor
5. American Born Chinese, Gene Luen Yang
6. Sharp Teeth, Toby Barlow
Happy New Year!
