I am excited to be a part of this year’s #mustreadin2019.

I am looking forward to reading and book talking each of the books on my list with my students. I’m sure some of the books will have been read by my secondary kids and hope to produce some good discussions.

I’ve enjoyed perusing other people’s lists and have to confess that I have a ‘secret list’ based on what I’ve seen- thank you all.


Here is my ‘must read’ list of books for 2019!
