First order of business: If you write about children’s books (from picture books to YA) ANYWHERE (Goodreads, blog, YouTube — though I guess that’s not writing — Instagram) you should seriously consider applying to help judge the Cybils awards this year. I’ve been helping out for more than a decade now, and I have met some of the best people through the Cybils, as well as read some of the best books. Yes, it’s a time commitment, but it’s a FUN one, and one I love being a part of. For more information about applying, go here.
And now, for the state of the TBR Pile:
Witches Abroad by Terry Pratchett
Lords and Ladies by Terry Pratchett
Maskerade by Terry Pratchett
Lab Girl by Hope Jahren
Cinder by Marissa Meyer
The Power by Naomi Alderman
Pumpkinheads by Rainbow Rowell and Faith Erin Hicks
Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta
The irony of this pile is that the books I’ve chosen to read while recovering from knee surgery (which is NO fun) weren’t even on this pile to begin with. Ah. Bookish people problems.
What are you looking forward to reading?
