Friday Five

This week marked the start of award season...National Book Award season. The National Book Foundation announced their longlist (the Top 10) in several categories this week, including Young People's Literature. It is an outstanding list this year, and will be tough to choose a winner. But I decided to give it a go in this week's episode and I offer you my five favorite books from the 2018 longlist. For a full-list of the this year's nominees in all the categories, visit the National Book Foundation website. Happy Reading and enjoy the weekend! #nationalbookawards #FridayFive #awardwinners #newbooks #highschool #middleschool #yalit #nonfiction #memoir
