The Carnegie Medal is awarded annually to the writer of an outstanding book for children.
The long list was published and I could hardly wait!
Last year I set myself the challenge to read all the long list before the winner was announced – and although it felt like an impossible task at times, I actually managed to do it!
I have stopped myself from starting a new book this half term because I want to start straight away – I’m so keen I kept checking the Carnegie website all morning but there was no news until midday
If I have counted correctly there are 68 books on this years list – that’s a lot of quick reading.
Any books that the MRC doesn’t yet have we’ll be buying in (not just for me) but for all students to have access to as these are likely to be the ‘best’ books published this past year.
Again I’ll be sharing my experiences and thoughts on each book on this blog. Will I be able to predict the overall winner again? Probably not! Will I actually be able to read them all this time?
I’d better get reading!
