Ricki and Kellee’s #MustReadIn2017 Spring Update!



#MustReadIn2017 is hosted by Carrie Gelson at There Is A Book For That:

“For anyone out there with a To Be Read list that seems like it will never end, this challenge is for you! This is all about making your own personal list of books (5? 10? 20? 30? more?) that you commit to reading in 2016. Books can be published in any year, be from any genre, and be from any category (adult, YA, MG, Graphics, NF, etc.).  As your TBR list grows, you promise you will get to the books on this list.”

Our (hopeful) #mustreadin2017 Lists:




Whew. I have not been doing a good job. Similar to Kellee, below, I have had some major obligations. I wrote a 280-page dissertation! I am hoping to fly through some of these books right after I graduate next month. 🙂

Ghost by Jason Reynolds

This book was phenomenal. I am so excited to read the others in the series. Jason Reynolds captures the adolescent voice perfectly. I know many of you have read this book, but if you haven’t, I recommend it highly.


My #mustread list reading has started out slowly because of reading obligations I’ve had, but they’ve been awesome such as book club reading, reading books for author Skype visits, and reading books recommended to me by my students. I hope to get through more titles between now and the Fall update though I am not putting any pressure on myself 🙂

A Boy Called Bat by Elana K. Arnold

I really loved Bat and his story. A Boy Called Bat is going to be one of those books that change people’s views of others. I am so glad that this book is out there for kids (and adults!) to read.

  1. I read GHOST and loved it! How about that ending!!! I can’t wait for Patina to come out in August. This is the second time today I came across A Boy Called Bat. I placed it on hold at the library. I can’t wait to read it! I see we have a lot of overlapping titles. Thanks for sharing both lists. ~Amy

  2. I don’t know how anyone gets any reading done while writing a dissertation! I went on a reading binge right after I defended my dissertation because I had missed reading for fun so much. I loved A Boy Called Bat. Bat is such a unique and wonderful character.
