the fun of a bookish prize
posted by soe 1:13 am

When I did Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon last month, I entered a Twitter contest that Liz (aka cosbrarian) was running in which she asked which books helped us get through our teenage years. My answer was:

#DeweysEscape When I was a teen I read and re-read the Anne of Green Gables series and Little Women. Sometimes if I were feeling particularly mopey, I’d just read Beth’s final scenes. #itgetsbetter

I was lucky enough to be chosen the winner of the contest and Liz sent me four new books last week!

November Gift Books

While I have read Becky Albertalli’s The Upside of Unrequited, it was a library copy and it’s been on my must-buy list for a while (it’s set in the D.C. area just as marriage equality is being made the law of the land and includes a scene that I was actually at). Monday’s Not Coming by Tiffany D. Jackson is also set in D.C., and I’ve been on the holds list for it at the library, so it’s really exciting to get my own copy of that, as well. I’m less familiar with, but also looking forward to reading the other two books, The Way I Used to Be by Amber Smith and Kelly Loy Gilbert’s Picture Us in the Light.

Thank you, Liz! I’m looking forward to many hours of reading ahead!
