Last year, a bunch of us here at The Hub made new year’s resolutions having to do with YA lit. Some of us were successful; others weren’t. But in a time-honored tradition, as we bid 2012 adieu and welcome in 2013, we’re making resolutions again! Here’s how we did and what we want to do this year.
Ariel Cummins: My literary New Year’s resolution is to read more younger YA and older children’s fiction so I can do better reader’s advisory for tweens.
Annie Schutte: My resolution is to read more “adult” books with young adult protagonists to think about where we draw the line between the two, and whether we should.
Faythe Arredondo: I failed at my resolution (“to read the classics I said I would read in 2011”) so hard! I did not touch one of those classics! I am making the same resolution for 2013. I am so determined this year that I sent the list to a friend so someone will hold me accountable!
