Our YA Lit Resolutions for 2014

Happy New Year - image created by Allison Tran for The HubAre you making resolutions for 2014? We here at The Hub have a tradition of making New Year’s resolutions about our reading habits (see last year’s post). Here are our reading resolutions for the coming year– and we’d love it if you share yours in the comments!

  • Alegria Barclay: My New Year’s Resolution is to read more non-fiction as it is admittedly my least-favorite genre.  I find myself too often at a loss when asked for recommendation so my goal is to read one non-fiction book for every four fiction books I read.
  • Laura Perenic: For 2014 I resolve to be more generous with the literary wealth I have been afforded by my public library.  I continually take for the granted that since my library is lush with materials that all other libraries are outfitted similarly. Normally I would have all my book club books cataloged for my library; however, starting in 2014 I will donate my books to a school library.
  • Jessica Miller: My reading resolution for 2014 is to finally read the books I’ve purchased on my Nook and let sit forever in favor of reading more and more new releases from the library. Time to clear off the virtual to-be-read bookshelf!!

Our YA Lit Resolutions for 2013

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!
