Books I Want to Read

I have LOVED being on the NCTE Charlotte Huck Award Committee for the past three years.  I have loved reading with the lens of the Charlotte Huck and I feel like I've done a good job of keeping up with fiction picture books and middle grade fiction novels (although there are several that I haven't read yet..).  But I have missed some other kinds of reading I love--I have missed adult fiction. I've missed young adult fiction. And I've missed nonfiction reading. I've squeezed one in every few often but definitely feel like I have missed out on lots of great books in those categories.  So in preparation for winter break and winter in general. I am trying to start a small stack. It is a bit tricky getting back into reading after a few years on an award committee. So I am moving back in slowly, thinking about those must reads--books that I am hoping to read sooner rather than later.  Here are a few that are on my latest TBR stack.


Commonwealth by Ann Patchett





Exit, Pursued by a Bear by E.K. Johnston










American Street by Ibi Zoboi (published in February 2017)


Snow White by Matt Phelan


Any other must-reads to add to my stack?

  1. Thanks some new titles for me. And I agree I need to expand my genre choices from the Mathematical books I have been reading.
