PW’s Best Books of 2016
As the end of the year approaches, Best Of lists appear! Publisher Weekly’s list came out today and it shares a lot of titles in common with this blog. Their list is divided into Picture Books, Middle Grade, and Young Adult and books from any of these lists could potentially be Newbery contenders. So, what’s not here? Well, WOLF HOLLOW, for one!
The PW list also includes some other titles that I think we’ll get to discussing. I know I have THE BEST MAN and THE INQUISITOR’S TALE on my list. What others do you see here that you think deserve to be in the Newbery conversation this year?
