Looking Ahead to 2015
On 30, Dec 2014 | In Uncategorized | By Elizabeth Wroten
This is the post where I make my blog resolutions for next year. Feel free to skip it, I’m mostly doing it for my own accountability.
Each month I am going to review at least one:
- picture book
- chapter book
- middle grade
- and nonfiction
There will probably be more, but that’s my goal.
I will also read and review a single author in the last week of the month. Next month I’m starting with Joseph Bruchac because he is coming to Sacramento to speak!! He’ll be here early in February so I wanted to have read through a number of his books before I see him. After Joseph Bruchac I believe I will read through Jewell Parker Rhodes YA books since I read the ARC of her latest novel and loved it.
I am making a concerted effort to pick books to read next year that either feature diversity or are written by a diverse author. There are a couple books that I want to read that don’t fit the criteria (there’s a sequel to The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate coming out!!!!) but I want to be part of encouraging publishers to publish diverse titles and authors. I don’t feel like there is much I can do to help this cause yet, but I can read and review diverse literature.
I will continue to share what is going on in the Makerspace I’m running and, of course, I’ll share my thoughts on various library topics as they come up.
I hope everyone has a happy and safe holiday season and 2015.
