If you’ve followed my Top Ten Tuesdays for any amount of time you’ll know that I love to make reading lists but I’m terrible about actually reading books on those lists. On July 28, 2020, I used a Top Ten Tuesday freebie to put myself on blast for all the books I brought back from the 2019 NCTE conference that I’d been talking about reading, but hadn’t yet. Let’s take a look at that list. You can swipe through the images below for covers.
- Birthday by Meredith Russo
- I’m Not Dying with You Tonight by Kimberly Jones and Gilly Segal
- The Voting Booth by Brandy Colbert
- We Are Lost and Found by Helene Dunbar
- Anger is a Gift by Mark Oshiro
- Light It Up by Kekla Magoon
- The Year We Fell from Space by Amy Sarig King
- Barely Missing Everything by Matt Mendez
- Like a Love Story by Abdi Nazemian
- Let Me Hear a Rhyme by Tiffany D. Jackson
Of those 10 books, I only read one: The Voting Booth by Brandy Colbert. I did read Mark Oshiro’s other book, Each of Us a Desert, and Helene Dunbar’s Prelude for Lost Souls. That’s got to count for something, right?
I’m not sure I want to start trying to hold myself to a list right now, but maybe that can be something I resolve to do next year.
What books did you mean to read in 2020 that you didn’t get to?
I’ve heard good things about Anger Is a Gift.
