Blog Posts From the Past Week: Review of Dalia's Wondrous Hair, Celebrate!, Holy Bagumba! (My Flora costume preparations), Nonfiction Picture Book Challenge - Water Can Be... & Picture Yourself Writing Poetry, and #MustReadin2014 Update
The Past Week:
I loved my dip into poetry this week with Sarah Kay's books B and No Matter the Wreckage along with Laura Purdie Salas' book Water Can Be.... I even managed to write a few poems myself after that.
I jumped into several adult books this week and really enjoyed all of them. Neverwhere was a fun fantasy that kept me wondering. Round House was intense. It was a mystery, but it was also about family. The Right Mistake was interesting especially given the fact that it is the third in a series and I hadn't read the other two. Oops. It worked as a stand alone though.
A Baby Elephant in the Wild is an excellent nonfiction title for very young readers just learning about nonfiction. Marathon Mouse was a cute book about running. I also had a great time reading a few more Pura Belpré books. Altogether it was a fantastic week for reading.
The Coming Week:
I am still reading a professional book, I'm Chocolate, You're Vanilla. I will be listening to The Riverman and then China Dolls on my road trip. I am also taking a few books with me: Etched in Clay and West of the Moon. I don't know if I will get to them though. Have a great week!
