If you want to know more about what I am reading, visit me at my Goodreads shelf. Images via Goodreads unless otherwise noted.
The Past Week:
I spent a lot of time in bookstores on Labor Day so I read quite a pile of picture books. My favorites of those were Waiting and Bug in a Vacuum. Waiting speaks quietly and peacefully. Bug in a Vacuum strangely enough is about grief though in a humorous way. Hope is a Ferris Wheel really touched my emotions. I will review the YA book Into the Dangerous World at Rich in Color later (the author provided me a copy for review), but it was certainly a very unique story. The main character is trying to figure out who she is as an artist while experimenting with graffiti in the big city.
I went to a local university for an afternoon on the weekend to read An Island Like You. I don't have borrowing privileges there but was having difficulty getting it through ILL. I requested it in English, but ended up with a Spanish version. This was the final title I needed to read of the Pura Belpré winners/honors. It was a nice collection of short stories. Now every year I can just read the new winners and will be caught up again. Yay! Actually, if I read the books on this very thorough list of 2015 publications posted at Latin@s in Kidlit, I may even get ahead.
The Coming Week:
I'm listening to Good Omens by Gaiman and Pratchett. I'm also reading the ARC for Urban Tribes. I actually need to do less reading and more reviewing this week. I am far behind on that. So perhaps there won't be as many books on my list next week. Have a great time reading!
