Mock Printz - Titles Released

Drumroll please:

  1. A Monster Calls - Patrick Ness
  2. Between Shades of Gray - Ruta Sepetys
  3. Berlin Boxing Club - Robert Sharenow
  4. Blood Red Road - Moira Young
  5. Daughter of Smoke and Bone - Laini Taylor
  6. Divergent - Veronica Roth
  7. Everybody Loves the Ants - A.S. King
  8. Flesh and Blood so Cheap: The Triangle Fire and Legacy - Albert Marrin
  9. Imaginary Girls - Nova Ren Suma
  10. Where Things Come Back - John Corey Whaley
We've reviewed quite a few of these on here already this year, but where it will get interesting (at least for me) is when we go back and re-read them and then re-review them and see how a closer reading changes what we feel about the book. Because it always does.

One other thing to note is that we removed OK for Now by Gary Schmidt. It was chosen for our system's Mock Newbery as well and so to keep the discussion fresh, we removed the title from our list.

Hope you'll read along with us!

So wonderful! Maybe this will spark my reading again. I can't wait to get started on the rest, especially Where Things Come Back. Finishing A Monster Calls TODAY.

I've already read most of these! Going to get to the rest immediately...

BTW, could you let me know what the other Mocks were? You can email me at home or work, if you want.
