This is the last day in the challenge and I am thrilled to say that I read all of the books on my original list and reviewed all but On The Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta, only because I just finished reading it today (talk about cutting it close).
The challenge was to read as many Newbery and Printz award winners or nominees as possible between Memorial Day and Labor Day- May 30th until September 5th.
There were 4 levels of participation-
Level 1- Underachiever: Read 3 books
Level 2- Nerd: Read 6 books
Level 3- Brainiac: Read 9 books
Level 4- Teacher's Pet: Read 12 books
I signed up at the Brainiac level and the nine books I read are:
- When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead - my review
- The Giver by Lois Lowry - my review
- Bridge To Terabithia by Katherine Paterson - my review
- Going Bovine by Libba Bray- my review
- On The Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta
- The Earth, My Butt and Other Big Round Things by Carolyn Mackler - my review
- The Book Thief by Markus Zusak - my review
- Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging by Louise Rennison - my review
- Please Ignore Vera Dietz by A.S. King - my review
Since I'm done with this challenge, I could really use some suggestions of what to read next. What has been your favorite read this year?
