My Mock Newbery – Whose In?

After surfing the web and trolling the Mock Newbery websites, I’ve created my list.  The books on other lists I already read automatically made my list.  I added others trying to make certain it included a diverse range of genres and characters.  Seven books down, ten more to go.  Although, I doubt I’ll read all of the other ten.  If it doesn’t make me want to stay up later than 10 pm, I’ll move on to the next book.

The official winners are announced on January 11th.  I’ll announce my choice for the 2016 Newbery on the first day of the year.  Anyone want to join me?
