readathon One of the overarching themes of this year’s readathon is to celebrate the 10th anniversary of its founding. As such, the organizers have issued this challenge:

Submit one book recommendation published in each year of the Readathon (2007-2017).

All were five-star reads, unless otherwise noted:


2007: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling

2008: The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman

2009: When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead (4 stars, although I think I should bump it up to 5 in retrospect)

2010: Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand by Helen Simonson (4 stars)

2011: The Night Circus by Emily Morganstern

2012: Endangered by Eliot Schrefer

2013: Two Boys Kissing by David Levithan
