I did something similar. I’m doing the “standard” ICYMI challenge, picking a book from the list provided by Read with the Book Girls. And I’m also reading the annual Newbery Award books from the same year. So for January, I read the 2012 Medal book, Dead End in Norvelt by Jack Gantos. For February’s 2013 Newbery, I had already read the Medal book, so I’ve selected one of the Honor books to read.
