I think that covers it! My students and I are SOOOOOO excited for the ALA Youth Media Awards on January 28th, 2013. I hope to watch it live with at least one of my classes. We're also rooting for Wonder by R.J. Palacio or The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate to win the Newbery! Even though I don't teach teens, I still read young adult novels, and my pick to win the Printz Award is The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. I love his video series, the The VlogBrothers even though I can't share it with my students. They're obviously too young!
If you're looking for my Sunday Review, I've decided to join the bandwagon and post It's Monday! What are you reading? every week instead, so come back tomorrow!
