Talking 2012 Books

Believe it or not, Steve Thomas of Circulating Ideas was willing to have Kelly Jensen and I back on his show following the epic podcast of last July!

CI1 300x132 Talking 2012 Books

Kelly and I talk about reading and some of our favorite books of 2012, as well as what we’re looking forward to in 2013. So go on over to Circulating Ideas to hear us, along with the other  librarians in podcast: Kristi ChadwickAnna MickelsenSarah Statz Cords and Becky Spratford.

So, what are the books I mentioned?

I spoke about my top five books of 2012, which I wrote about in my guest post over at The Book Smugglers:

Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein

Froi of the Exiles (The Lumatere Chronicles) by Melina Marchetta

I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga

Long Lankin by Lindsey Barraclough

The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

I also spoke about some of my other favorite books of 2012 (alas, only a couple!)

The FitzOsbornes at War by Michelle Cooper

The Opposite of Hallelujah by Anna Jarzab

And the 2013 books I’m looking forward to are
