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: Ten Books We Hope to Read This Winter
1. American Street by Ibi Zoboi
This book has been on my to-read list for far too long.
2. History is All You Left Me by Adam Silvera
I am interested in incorporating this book into my Adolescents’ Literature course next year. I think it might be a good fit for our week that we talk about grief.
3. Dear Martin by Nic Stone
The only reason I haven’t read this sooner is that I can’t find the box that I packed it in. We moved this summer, and this is really cramping my reading style. 😉
4. The Lie Tree by Frances Hardinge
I am quite intrigued by this book, and I want to read it this winter.
5. Refugee by Alan Gratz
I just got this book on Audible, and I can’t wait to listen to it!
These are all books my students have asked me to read “soon!”
1. Young Elites by Marie Lu
Students keep on trying to spoil this one for me because they just want to chat about it, so I need to read it so I can be as excited as they are!
2. Rebels by Accident by Patricia
One of my students is Egyptian and says very rarely does she feel reflected in a book but that Rebels by Accident does just that. How can I deny reading this when she sells it to me that way?!
3. Mark of the Dragonfly by Jaleigh Johnson
Mark of the Dragonfly is on our state list for this year, and I have tried listening to the audiobook, but I was just not having much success; however, a student who I’ve had for 3 years swears to me that I will love it. I promised her I’d read it during break.
4. Randoms by David Liss
Randoms is the longest book on our state book list but it is also the one book I haven’t heard anything negative about. I will finish all 15 books on the SSYRA list, but I want to read this one soon because I want to promote it to help get it more readers who will love it, and I also promised a few of my readers I’d read it soon.
5. Prisoner of Ice & Snow by Ruth Lauren
One of my 7th graders is so enthusiastic about this book, and I promised her that I would find time for it soon.
What books do you plan to read this winter?
