My #MustReadin2020 Update



On January 1, 2020, I created my #mustreadin2020.  This is a list of middle grade novels all being published in 2020 that I wanted to make a priority to read.  Since school has officially ended, I can now relax, renew, and read.  Thanks to my fellow #bookexcursion member Lisa Maucione’s recent #mustread update post, now is a great time to take a look at my list and reflect upon my current status and progress.

I have read and reviewed 8 books  (47%)
I just finished reading 1 book. (6%)
I am currently reading 1 book. (6%)
I have 7 books left in my TBR stack. (41%)

  1. it seems like you’re pretty much on track with you #mustread list. I want to read A Dog-Friendly Town, too. I had two of my fourth grade classes Skype with Josephine Cameron for World Read Aloud Day. She was awesome! She sent me an arc of A Dog-Friendly Town, but students really wanted to read it so I had to lend it out before I got to read it.
