It’s been quite an interesting summer of traveling, of worrying over sick family (including Delta), watching our skies darken due to forest fires all around us, and believe it or not, we’re still continuing to settle into our new home (even though it’s been a year since our closing date). My goal was to at least get in one blog post before the end of August. TADA – Here I am! 😊 It may not be pretty today, but I’ve gotta get back with the program one way or another.
If you’re new to this blog, welcome! Since today is Monday, I participate in a weekly #IMWAYR meme. 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!
Until I have time to make a thorough list of all that I’ve read this summer, I’ll keep it short and simple. I’m currently finishing up the following two books:
My seven-year-old daughter has been reading me the Wings of Fire graphic novels every night most of the summer. We’re currently on book #4 and she cannot wait until the release of book #5 this December! I couldn’t tell you how many times she’s read them because it’s CONTINUAL! She’s even started writing her own dragon spin-off books.
During my sabbatical from blogging, I was thrilled to learn that Ben Gartner’s third book in The Eye of Ra series, People of the Sun, will be released February 1st. I’m so happy to delve back into that series soon and I would encourage you to add it to your reading list if you haven’t already.
I have three NetGalley books that I need to review over the next couple weeks. Then they JUST approved Say It Out Loud by Allison Varnes. While I’m excited to read it, I kinda wish they wouldn’t wait until AFTER a book has been published to approve my read request. Nevertheless, I’m hoping to start that one very soon.
My Goodreads account is a MESS, right now. I hope to get that cleaned up this week so that I can begin enjoyed the app again. I’m having to search my old library records and apps because I didn’t write ANY reviews from my summer reads. Anyway, if we’re not yet connected, please feel free to friend me HERE.
