Noreen’s Recommendations

Home/Noreen’s Recommendations

When I was a child, I read everything- including books I shouldn’t have been reading at that age! Thanks to my parents for opening up my world and letting me read anything that interested me, including the daily newspaper! As time went on I still read different genres, but am particularly drawn to mysteries, both for adults & children.

Currently, I’m going back in time reading & re-reading the Newbery Award winners & honor books. The Newbery Medal is awarded annually to the author of the most distinguished contribution to American literature for children. I’ve also been reading a lot of middle-grade and Young Adult (YA).

When I’m not reading, I’m quilting, planning my next travel spot, taking walks, and spending time at the Botanic Garden and various museums.
