And of course, I can't make any Printz predictions this year! 

What do you think will win? Any predictions for Caldecott, Newbery and Printz?

  1. My dark horse would be THe False Prince by Jennifer Nielsen. I don't think it has a shot, however I offer up two words that fuel my hope: The Thief.

  2. I'm thinking "Extra Yarn" as another possible for Caldecott. Oh, and maybe "Looking for Lincoln."

    Newbery thoughts, "Wonder" and "The One and Only Ivan." We'll see soon enough!

Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell

Rating: 5/5 Stars Genre: Realistic Fiction Release Date: 2/26/2013 Add to Goodreads About the Book: Eleanor and Park are both misfits. When new girl Eleanor sits next to Park on the bus, they don't want anything to do with each other. But over the course of the school year, things change. It starts with comic books and becomes a friendship and a romance that the two will never forget. You never forget your first love.

Downton Abbey is over (with a shocking and frustrating ending!) and now I'm suffering Downton Abbey withdrawal. I've got a reading list full of books that I hope will satisfy my post-Downton Abbey cravings and I thought I'd share what's in my pile and get suggestions for other after Downton reads. Here's what I hope to be reading this year (a mix of YA and adult titles):                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  A couple Julian Fellowes reads:                And a few re-reads:                    Edited to add: What's on your Post-Downton Abbey reading list?
