Growing the Mock Newbery Reading List: May suggestions are now open
Our list of possible Newbery contenders looks good so far, but the good books keep coming. It’s time to add May suggestions to the list. The real Newbery Committee members typically share title suggestions with each other on a monthly basis, and we follow that practice here on Heavy Medal. Our guidelines for suggestions vary a bit: we limit suggestions to 5 per month per person, for instance, and ask that only titles that have been published in print form be suggested. More details can be found on this earlier post from March.
If you have any titles that you think should be considered, please provide titles and authors in the comments below. It’s fine to include books that others have suggested already in previous months. May suggestions are open from now through May 9th, and we’ll share the results on the blog shortly after that.
