I had a different plan for today. There are a few reasons I'm not posting what I was going to post. I have zero energy, I got stuck in the snow at my mom's when I was planning on taking pictures of the library books I was going to feature, and I've been reading a really good book I don't want to put down. (To be fair- Whit told me she'd post for me today... but I felt bad doing that, I mean I know she's super busy and she covers for me all the time.)
So... Have any of you read The Hero and the Crown by Robin McKinley? It won the Newbery Medal Back in 1985. I'd actually never even heard of it (at least not that I remembered) until I stumbled upon it at a thrift store a while back. I recognized the author, I love fantasy and it won a medal... so I forked over a buck for this copy.
Well... I finally picked it up off the shelf a couple days ago and I'm loving it! I just want to read! So I've been doing a lot of that.
There are many many Newbery Medal books I've never read (quite a few I've read and didn't care for) but this one is excellent! You should read it.
