Newbery Books I Read Before 2018


This is my list of books with my star ratings from Goodreads. Links are to the books on Goodreads unless there is a 'reviewed' note and then link goes to my Goodreads review. I wasn't writing reviews on juvenile fiction for awhile, so only some of these are reviewed. I really wish I had written a review for each of them so that I could remember what I liked or didn't like or whether any of these were problematic for the classroom. Perhaps one day I will reread these and take better notes. None of these reviews note whether there was problematic material. That's something I intend to correct going forward. :)
