Adult Mock Newbery 2012 List #1

Here's our first list of the year!

Make sure you read at least these 10 titles because we will for sure discuss these at our Adult Mock Newbery meeting in January.  Click on each link to add your voice to the discussion!

The Adult Mock Newbery Club meeting will be held on January 21, 2012 from 10:00am - 5:00pm in the Children's Services Storytime Room at the Main Library.  Register HERE, if you haven't already done so!

Can't wait to hear from you!


  1. The Penderwicks!!! Blarghh!!! Kris, I blame you for this selection!!

  2. I loved the Penderwicks and I've never read the first or second one! It's perfect for girls who like the mother daughter book club books and those like it!

  3. I love all of the Penderwicks books. Why? Because they do what the author says they'll do--provide charming characters, real-life humorous and emotionally resonant situations, and comfort. Yes, they're comfort food. The characters act consistently from book to book, yet show growth as they get older, and they feel like friends. Newbery material? Maybe...that's the joy of a book group...we talk about it and argue a bit. : )

  4. And also, a bit shout out for Brain Lair--the page looks fantastic! Thanks for all of the hard work you've done in putting this together, man!
