Welcome to book genre monthly

Welcome to my first real blog.

As a new teacher librarian but old English/History teacher I am missing the structures imposed by having my own class and a set curriculum.  So this is my new structure!  My blog has two purposes

1. To record and promote books suitable for young adults and adolescents

2. To impose a structure on my reading so that I regularly change genres.

I plan to use months as a way into different genres/sub genres themes

such as

  • Juicy January (suspense?)
  • Fantastic or Fable February
  • Mystery March
  • Action and adventure or Australian April
  • Movie May or Mushy May (chick lit/romance)
  • Joking/Jolly June (humour)
  • Justice July (standing up for rights)
  • Autobiography or Animal August
  • Speculative or Sci Fi September
  • Old Times October (Historical)
  • Knowledge November (Information texts)
  • Diary or Dystopian December

I am not going to limit myself to just these genres and can probably fit most books into a month using alliteration.  Happy for suggestions.
