Even though it has been vacation week, I have not really read as much as I would have liked. I did read a picture book called Clara's Crazy Curls that is due to be released in January. Click here if you'd like to read my review. I am also currently reading Ophelia and the Marvelous Boy which is sure to be a hit with middle graders in 2014 (review later).
So I thought I would use today's IMWAYR post to reflect on my reading in 2013 by choosing my favorites in each category.
I have read more books this year than any other. I surpassed my goal of 300 books by reading 332 books! They are here if you'd care to see.
So here they are, my favorite books of 2013!
Fiction Picture Books
Nonfiction Picture Books
Middle Grade Novels
Upper Middle Grade/YA Novels
So there you have it folks.
