YAMG Book Battle

As long time readers of this blog know, I am a big fan of SLJ's Battle of the Books. I get excited and invested in the battle every year. This year I have an additional type battle to get excited about, but for purposes of impartiality am going to not get too invested in. A friend of mine, not excited by the books chosen for SLJ BoB this year, decided to do her own battle featuring UNDER APPRECIATED MG and YA TITLES. I liked this idea, so when she asked if I would be a judge I jumped at the chance. (I will be judging Round 3-1. Meaning I'm particularly not getting invested in the top half of the bracket.)

Here is the schedule for Round One:

March 3

March 4

March 5
March 6

March 10

March 11

March 12

 March 13

Stop by and read the judges decisions!

I like these much better than most of the SLJ ones!

I'm having a hard time getting excited about the SLJ ones this year too. Which is more a reflection on last year's books overall than the organizers choices.
