I’ve decided to read 100 children’s books in 2010. I use the term children’s books, though I'm going to be reading young adult novels as well as middle grade novels. A few picture books or chapter books may sneak in too. My plan is to read only books I haven’t read before. Don't expect reviews or a lot of plot details. I'm a writer, not a book reviewer.
Since I made this decision halfway through the month of January, I’m already behind! On average, I need to read 8 1/3 books each month.
In the first weeks of January, I’ve read these books:
1. If You Live Like Me by Lori Weber
2. I Know It’s Over by C.K. Kelly Martin
3. Double Identity by Margaret Peterson Haddix
4. First Light by Rebecca Stead
These novels are very different but I enjoyed all four of them. First Light reminded me a little of City of Ember and confused me at first with the changes in point of view, but turned out to be very absorbing.
