National Poetry Month Plans

I didn't make any official blogging plans for National Poetry Month this year. This is mainly because I've been so busy writing! Corey and I have some manuscripts in the works. I recently wrote and polished a new picture book manuscript. And, I've been furiously revising a middle grade novel in verse.

So, with novels in verse on my mind, I decided that during April I would read as many novels in verse as I could get my hands on. I began with the middle grade book GROW by Juanita Havill. It is a sweet story about a little girl working with her neighbor to create a community garden on a vacant lot.

Yesterday I reread LOVE THAT DOG by Sharon Creech, which is one of the most brilliant books I've ever read. Read it. It'll take you less than an hour, but it will stick with you forever!

My current read, which I will possibly finish today, is HOUSE ARREST by K. A. Holt. She is the author of RHYME SCHEMER, which I reviewed last year. So far, HOUSE ARREST is every bit as good.

So that's my unofficial, unplanned, unorganized National Poetry Month observance. How are you celebrating poetry this month?
