This month is National Poetry Month. What does that mean to me? Have I been reading, writing or thinking more about poetry? Well, yes. I must confess, I'm a novel in verse addict. Have you tried one? Would you like to? What's your favorite novel in verse?
Next week I'll be posting an author interview with Lisa Schroeder who has published three young adult novels in verse. I just finished Lisa's beautiful novel, Chasing Brooklyn. If you haven't read a novel in verse yet, there's a start. And I can recommend dozens of other authors including Helen Frost, Sonya Sones, Ellen Hopkins, Jandy Nelson. These are just off the top of my head. There are many more.
Do you have a favorite poet, poem, or novel in verse? Please share!!!
WHAT I'M READING THIS WEEK: Where She Went (G. Forman) Chasing Brooklyn (L. Schroeder) Between Shades of Gray (R. Sepetys) Not That Kind of Girl (S.Vivian)
