I am taking the easy way out today. I am putting in screen shots of my Goodreads page. I am super tired, but didn't want to skip this so here is my compromise.
I had a few favorites. I had been looking forward to Bitterblue and was not disappointed. It is another great fantasy and I liked it waaaay better than Fire and almost as much as Graceling. Stick was seriously intense, but quite well done. Kepler's Dream was a surprisingly engaging family mystery. The pictures in Naamah and the Ark at Night were fabulous. Hippo & 11 Experiments got some chuckles out of me. I really enjoyed Redwoods. I learned a lot of super interesting facts. Nothing Like a Puffin was a really bright and fun book that explained puffins by showing what they are NOT like.
I also read to a group of children in Romania on Friday morning and had a blast with them. I shared some Jack Prelutsky, Sugar Snow (a Laura Ingalls Wilder picture book), the Oneida book from above and Punk Farm. Here is a video on their wiki. If you are interested in reading with them, I would highly recommend it. It was a great experience.
For the coming week, I am finishing Seriously...I'm Kidding for real. I only have 2 chapters left. My attempt at Me and Earl and the Dying Girl was stymied when I could no longer open it on my NookColor. I will finish it this week on my computer - not nearly as comfortable. I am also planning to dive back into the Newbery and Caldecott challenges. Smoky the Cowhorse is up next and I have a pile of Caldecotts. It should be fun. :)
