#MustReadin2019 - Update

      Thanks to Carrie Gelson of There's A Book for That for hosting a #MustRead group each year for those who continue to create a list of lonely books on shelves or lists that we are excited about when bought or listed, then ignore, or find others that call more loudly.  See the above link to Carrie's blog to find out more!

       I'm doing better with a shortened list. Here's what has happened thus far--seven out of thirteen!

  1. Look at you! Impressive! Can't wait until you read Me and Marvin Gardens. This was a favourite for me! We just bought Dry but I'm scared to read it. Stories that just seem too real and too upsetting make me feel out of control.

    1. Will try to get to Me and Marvin Gardens soon, from your rec, Carrie! Yes, Dry was awfully close to home, especially here in Colorado, but I love Neal Shusterman's books! That's a lure! Happy Reading & thanks for collecting all of us!

  2. Wow, Linda -- you're so far through your list! How did I not know about I Am Still Alive? I'm adding this one to my TBR list as it looks wonderful! I still hope to read Mary's Monster. And then Educated is on my #MustReadin2019 list, so I'll get to it very soon. I enjoy getting to see everyone's updates!

    1. Thanks, Shaye, for some reason, I needed to read those books! Hope you find your own special books from your list to enjoy!

  3. 7 out of 13 is pretty awesome! From your list I have read Front Desk and The Poet X, both of which I can count of some of my favorite reads!!

    1. Yes, they are both wonderful! We are lucky to have beautiful books like those to read! Thank you!

  4. It looks like you have had some great reads and have even more to look forward to. I too loved The Poet X and Front Desk. good luck with the rest of your list.
