If I Were Giving Out the 2014 Newbery Medal

I would probably give it to Hokey Pokey by Jerry Spinelli.

Doll Bones cover thelostkingdom The-True-Blue-Scouts-of-Sugar-Man-Swamp

And I would definitely give Newbery Honors to *Doll Bones* by Holly Black and *The Lost Kingdom* by Matthew J. Kirby, and maybe give one to *The True Blue Scouts of Sugar Man Swamp* by Kathy Appelt as well.

But I didn’t read nearly enough last year to do any any truly knowledgeable award giving.  I’m sure there are many other worthy titles that I just didn’t get around to reading.   Still, all these books I’ve listed are worth your time.
