I mean, let's face it: I left my own Florentine novel in suspense at page 80—I left it, literally, mid-sentence, in a scene I never saw coming. I left it several days ago, feels like weeks ago, feels like another era, and I don't know when I will get to it again. I don't know if I'll remember what it was I imagined I was doing.
But. There are four books I've been dying to read—four books that, if left unread, basically disqualify me to opine about the year in Children's/YA. And I gotta opine.
Picture me reading this weekend, then, in the following order:
Code Name Verity (Elizabeth Wein)
Son (Lois Lowry)
Ask the Passengers (A.S. King)
Goblin Secrets (William Alexander)
My thoughts about Code Name Verity will be posted here tomorrow.
