Several members of my nerdy PLN have been inspired by Carrie’s #MustReadin2014 list and created their own. Check out Linda’s list at Teacher Dance and Lorna’s list at Not for Lunch, though be warned: these lists are dangerous for your own TBR list! Like you don’t already have enough to read!
I already wrote about my reading goals for 2014 and included a partial list of my YA Shelf of Shame, and I am determined to read 12 books from that list. Markus Zusak, M.T. Anderson, 2014 is your year!
But the #MustReadin2014 list is a little different for me. Unlike the YA Shelf of Shame challenge, or the Newbery challenge, or the Caldecott challenge, #MustReadin2014 is all about books I really want to read. I didn’t allow myself to put a single “should” title on the list. With a couple of exceptions for books I know I can get at the library, this is a challenge that I will use to attack the ever-growing TBR pile of books I’ve bought in the past 12 months and haven’t read yet, even though I wanted to read them so badly that I had to buy them in hardcover, sometimes pre-ordering before they were even released.
