Fall and cooler weather have finally descended upon north Alabama. Can we all shout a collective “hallelujah”? 🙂 That also means that this challenge is almost at an end. I typically pick up speed toward the end of the challenge because so many of the titles are already familiar to me, and this year is no exception. Here’s what I read or listened to:
- A Year Down Yonder by Richard Peck (audiobook)
- Lizzie Bright and the Buckminster Boy by Gary D. Schmidt (audiobook)
- Surviving the Applewhites by Stephanie S. Tolan
- The Wednesday Wars by Gary D. Schmidt (audiobook)
I never got around to reviewing The Wednesday Wars in audio, mostly because of that little thing called time and the fact that I already gushed about it when I read it a few years back. However, if this tells you anything, I actually missed my turn and ended up discovering a new route to my destination because I was so engrossed in this story as I was driving. Joel Johnstone’s voice as Holling Hoodhood’s is spot-on. I might’ve shed a tear or a dozen while listening to this one. Highly, Highly Recommended.
Which Newberys did you read this month? Do tell!
