I knew it was coming. I just didn't know that I was actually on the right track for the 2012 Irving ISD Librarian Summer Reading Challenge. I should have seen it coming though when I was talking to my friend, Lea, who just happens to be the Director of Library Services, that I was planning to read some of the books from the TLA Lariat List this summer. Since I didn't get the challenge until yesterday I guess Godmother won't really count. Oh, well, darn, now I have to read another book (raising sarcasm sign).
Okay, here is the challenge...lots of choices.
1 - controversial adult book OR book by one of the authors visiting Irving Public Library this summer
- John Corey Whaley - Where Things Come Back,
- Beth Revis - A Million Suns & Across the Universe
- Jackson Pearce - As You Wish, Sisters Red, Sweetly, & Purity
- Andrea Cremer - Nightshade, Wolfsbane: A Nightshade Novel, & Bloodrose: A Nightshade Novel
- Rosemary Clement-Moore -Prom tes from Hell, Hell Week, Highway to Hell, & The Splendor Falls
- Marie Lu - Legend
- Lori Wilde - Saving Allegheny Green, You Only Love Twice, Addicted to Love, The Sweethearts' Knitting Club, High Stakes Seduction, & The First Love Cookie Club
- Francis Ray - A Seductive Kiss, Twice the Temptation, Undeniable, & Break Every Rule
- Elizabeth Essex - The Pursuit of Pleasure & A Sense of Sin
- Leann Harris - Hidden Deception
2 - books from the current or past Lariat List OR online books (or a combination of the two)
3 - young adult books with 2011 or later copyright dates OR nonfiction books (or a combination of the two)
4 - recent picture books OR graphic novels - (or a combination of the two)
You will have to come back to see the choices I make and my opinion of the different books.
