Week in Review: January 25


This week on the blog you can check out:

My birthday was this week so I tried to focus on posts I’ve been really excited to share which I totally accomplished.

I was off until Wednesday and then had a late night shift Thursday so my internal clock is pretty broken but I’m slowly getting back into the swing of things.

Work-wise I presented at my library system’s Mock Printz about why This One Summer by Jillian and Mariko Tamaki deserves Printz gold this year. It wasn’t as hard a sell as my Caldecott title BUT my book did win. I feel like I should make myself a plaque or something. It’s totally fun and awesome to win two in a row but also a bit embarrassing because I honestly doubt it will ever happen again.

Our honor books were Gabi, A Girl in Pieces by Isabel Quintero and The Family Romanov by Candice Fleming.

Me after the winner announcement:

Blog-wise I’ve cleaned up my blog roll and sidebar and have been doing small maintenance here and there. I’m also neck deep in planning my April 2015 series. I think I also am supposed to prepare for Contemporary Conversations but I am sort of just waiting for Kayla or Veronica to tell me what to do lol.

I also received this lovely from Bloomsbury which I am SUPER excited about:

As you read this I will be getting ready to see the ever delightful Nicole for a slightly belated birthday hang out.

How was your week?
