It’s been an unusual last two months between the sale of our house, our vacation to Terry Peak (where we nearly slid right off a steep road and into a gulch during a surprise snow storm), and a severe illness in the family that meant an unexpected 1,000 mile trip across the country (Northwestern Nebraska to Texas). All in all, I felt out of sorts through most of April and May. But I think I’m finally ready to return to active status in my online communities. So for IMWAYR today, I’ll be brief. Like, super brief. Everything pictured above is in my reading pile – I’ve either recently finished it or I’m in the middle of reading it.
I’ll take a special moment to mention that I just recently finished reading The Adventure is Now by Jess Redman and it was such a wonderful, modern adventure story, FULL of heart. I highly recommend and, if you’re interested, my full review can be found HERE. I truly hope this one will be found in children’s libraries everywhere.
If you’re new to my blog, thank you for visiting today! Kellee Moye of Unleashing Readers and Jen Vincent of Teach Mentor Texts decided to give Kathryn’s (at Book Date) “It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?” meme a kidlit focus, reviewing books in children’s literature (picture books, chapter books, middle grade novels, young adult novels, or anything in the world of kidlit). If you enjoy this type of reading, join us every Monday to share what you’ve been reading! And don’t forget to link up at either of the pages, above.
