How Many Have YOU Read?

               Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick

 

          I remember voting for my favorite Sequoyah nominee when I was in elementary school. I had read more than three nominees, so I was eligible to vote. The winner that year? Lee Wardlaw's 101 WAYS TO BUG YOUR PARENTS. I thought it was pretty schweet that *I* got to vote on a book award. Back then, the Sequoyah Awards were mostly aimed at elementary school aged children, but now? Guys, these days we have our OWN list of nominees, for our own award--the High School Sequoyah Award. All you have to do in order to vote next spring? Read or listen to three books off the list. And this is totally not a chore, because I'm reading through this list, and so far these books ARE AWESOME. 

The Girl of Fire and Awesome

The Girl of Fire and Thorns

 

Best book ever? OF COURSE IT IS!!!!!!! Okay, maybe not. I'm not entirely objective right now, having just finished the glorious prose that is Rae Carson's debut novel, The Girl of Fire and Thorns, but I will commit to saying that it's easily one of the most interesting, rewarding books I've read this year and last. Plus, it's a 2014 Sequoyah nominee!
