We're in hour 33, I've logged 14 hrs. Hitting 24 hours is doable, but will require caffeine! ☕☕
This is also my entry for the hr 30 challenge. This is the MG/YA section of my shelves and it's only about 1/2 the MG/YA books I own... as you can see, I read a lot of books that are "too young" for me ?

Books.Bottles.and.Babies It's hard to narrow down a favorite, but obviously HP & Narnia are up there! I read more YA than MG, but now that my boys want to read w/me I've found a whole new love for MG! #ireadya #ireadmg #24in48 @24in48 4mo
jmtrivera They're gorgeous! 4mo
Lucy_Anywhere I'm in awe of your bookshelves (and a little jealous!) 4mo
chaoticgoodhufflepuff I love your shelves! So beautiful! ❤️ 4mo
BooknerdsLife Love your bookshelves 😍❤️❤️ Hahaa same here! 😂🙈 I‘m too old for YA but my excuse is I read them so I can recommend to my teenage kid & some of them are really good books! 4mo

Willow King | Chris Platt

I have a new favorite #mglit author - Chris Platt - and a new favorite book - Willow King! 13-year-old Katie has a #disability - one leg shorter than the other. So when a colt is born with twisted legs, she saves him from being put down and raises him to be a champion. She also faces two #bullies and comes out better just through her goodness and a little help from others who appreciate her.

CherylRainfield I love Katie's grit & determination, her emotional strength & goodness, & her insecurity that gradually changes into a quiet confidence. I love that both she and the colt doggedly work with their challenges, & thrive and succeed. Katie is such a good and strong character, a bullied underdog who blossoms. I cheered for her throughout the book. 3y
CherylRainfield I also loved her supportive mother and other caring characters. I felt both inspired and comforted by the story, the way Anne of Green Gables and Heidi make me feel. It felt just right, and quickly became a favorite. I know I'll read this again. If you've got a #middlegrade reader or love strong-girl characters, get this book!
