* = a favorite.

Is it bad that so many of the books that I read were favorites? I do try to avoid books that I know I won't like, so maybe that's the reason? Either way, I would recommend any of the "favorites" listed above. Actually, I would recommend most of the books listed above anyway, though with some sort of intro like "it wasn't my favorite, but..." The only book that I probably would never recommend was M.C. Higgins the Great, which I only read in my attempt to read all the Newbery winners. I found it rather boring - but I don't think I understood the message the author was trying to portray (or something).

I tried to read M.C. Higgins the Great with my son once, and we were so bored we stopped! I'll have to add a few of your favorites to my neverending TBR list!

I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one who didn't enjoy MC Higgins! Kudos to you you for reading it with your son (and stopping when you were both to bored to cope!)
