  1. A lot of winners on this list! Love all of the nonfiction you shared. Nonfiction titles are truly so incredible - I have far too many favourites. Maggot Moon is some book isn't it? I may still not have recovered.

  2. I want to read Maggot Moon! What did you think of the awards? I've only read 2 of the Printz books, and although The Crossover is on my list to read, it is the only book I haven't read that made the Newbery list! It's hard to complain about their results when I haven't read all the books!

  3. You definitely picked some winners! I have a copy of The Crossover on hold at the library now.

  4. You're getting so much reading done! How awesome for you. I'm hoping to get to Once Upon an Alphabet this weekend before I return it to the library. I am reading Crossover with my book club for young readers this June - can't wait! :)
