wayfarers all

children's literature, childhood and culture (and anything else that strikes my fancy).

YA reading marathon

I've been swamped with end of semester paperwriting, revising and insomnia, but in between that fun i've been running a marathon of YA novel reading. Titles I've zipped through in the last two weeks include:

Boy Meets Boy - David Levithan
How to Disappear Completely & Never Be Found - Sara Nickerson
Lizzie Bright & the Buckminster Boy - Gary Schmidt
The Perks of Being a Wallflower - Steven Chbosky
how i live now - meg rosoff
The Homeward Bounders - Diana Wynne Jones (a re-read)
Running Loose - Chris Crutcher
Multiple Choice - Janet Tashjian

I will write more about some of them - how i live now and Perks in particular - when i've had a chance to re-read, and think more deeply about them.
stay tuned - same bat time, same bat station.
