With the new year, comes new books. Some I have been anxiously awaiting (Marissa Meyer I’m talking to you:-) and others I am just finding out about. Each year on Goodreads I set a goal and in 2015 I almost didn’t make it. The reason? OBOB. I read 12 of the 16 on the list. That is where most of my summer went. This year I am going to have to find a new balance and make sure I beat my goal with no worries. Here are just a few on my list for 2016:
(I do not know if this is final cover art or not)
another recommendation from Goodreads.
just look at this cover
poems about books….what could be finer?!
because I love me some monster books!
So I don’t always have time to spend looking at my recommendations on Goodreads. It is something that I need to dedicate time to as more often than not I get some goodies from the site. My storytime shelf is looking a little sparse so here are the books I am hopeful will take up a temporary existence…..
Why wouldn’t you love a dancing brontosaurus??
Just a fun looking book!
I can read Halloween type books all year long!
These titles have strictly come from Goodreads as recommendations. I have the picture books on hold and am organizing my thoughts as to which order the others will be read.
Replica may be number 1 on my list after I finish Scars by Cheryl Rainfield
a fun story that I can use at storytime.
A story about friendship and fairness that was ok. Don’t use it at storytime.
Check out this book on Goodreads: Max’s Words http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/74170.Max_s_Words.
This was on a “word play” list that I found after I read Dear Deer. Goodreads is a great place to find recommendations. I encourage kids at my school to join as I feel it is safer than Facebook and the people on Goodreads are on there because of their love of books. If you haven’t joined yet, you should consider it.
I got this off a list from Goodreads. Who couldn’t not like a bright yellow cover with a smiling exclamation point?!?!
Check out this book on Goodreads: They’re Coming! http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/15862971-they-re-coming. I recently discovered Timoty Young when I read “I Hate Picture Books” which I adored. I am excited to read his other titles.
