My personal contribution to this list is The Revenge of Analog by David Sax. I’m obsessed with this book!

I thought it might be interesting to some if I shared what I’m reading for my MFA each week, too. I’m working toward an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults at Sierra Nevada College.

Throughout this semester, I’m reading one story a day from Bradbury Stores: 100 of His Most Celebrated Tales. The pace of reading in this program (ten books a month!) doesn’t lend itself to a slow immersion in any work, so it’s very nice to be able to spend time with this book instead of rushing through.

I’m also reading Mischling by Affinity Konar. This book is so beautiful and so terrifying and so heartbreaking. If you liked The Book Thief, I think you’ll find this one compelling.

My favorite book of all time is Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women (I love this gorgeous cover.) In the beginning of that book, the March sisters read The Pilgrim’s Progress. I found a little illustrated version of that book at a used book store this week and I’m reading it. I did the same thing last semester when I read S.E. Hinton’s The Outsiders, and then followed that up with Gone With the Wind, which is the book Ponyboy reads to Johnny.
