As I gear up for this year's NaNoWriMo, I'm making reading lists. I've never won NaNoWriMo. I always run out of steam. I don't want that to happen anymore!
I've chosen YA urban fantasy as my genre of choice this year. So far I know I want it to be a story about a girl who has to save her sister. I feel that's vague enough that I can express it without worries of anyone stealing my idea. I have established a writing LJ parallel to this one, entitled
, to chronicle my plans for writing. I'm on NaNoWriMo as KimberlyH
, should you care to be buddies.
Here are my reading lists that I'm using as resources:
Bildungsroman: Fantasy Novels for Kids and Teens
Bildungsroman: Monster Mash
Bildungsroman: Vamping It Up
YALSA: Magic in the Real World
Anyone have any other list suggestions? I'm looking for lists rather than titles, because it's nice to get lots of info in one place.

I acknowledge that I live and work on unceded Lumbee, Skaruhreh/Tuscarora, and Shakori land. I give respect and reverence to those who came before me. I thank Holisticism for the text of this land acknowledgement.
We must acknowledge that much of what we know of this country today, including its culture, economic growth, and development throughout history and across time, has been made possible by the labor of enslaved Africans and their ascendants who suffered the horror of the transatlantic trafficking of their people, chattel slavery, and Jim Crow. We are indebted to their labor and their sacrifice, and we must acknowledge the tremors of that violence throughout the generations and the resulting impact that can still be felt and witnessed today. I thank Dr. Terah ‘TJ’ Stewart for the text of this labor acknowledgement.
