top ten tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. The feature was created because The Broke and Bookish are particularly fond of lists (as are we!). Each week a new Top Ten list topic is given and bloggers can participate.

 Today’s Topic: Top Books that Were Honored at the ALA Youth Media Awards that We Want to Read

Every year at the ALA Media Awards, books are honored that we missed reading! Here are the top ones we want to read that were honored this year!

  1. Brenda says:

    Bone Gap is the one that I really would like to get to, I’ve read good things about it. I did read Fish in a Tree and Echo, both are really good. my TTT

  2. Great lists! Fish in a Tree was very good. I didn’t LOVE Bone Gap – it was good but the mystical twist sort of took me by surprise.

    Echo is amazing on audio, as it is all about music – I highly recommend you listen to it – the accompanying music is integrated into the story and really enhances it.

    I would love to read Winnie!
