Last Week in Books:
Diary of a Tokyo Teen is a travel diary of a Japanese American teen visiting her grandparents. I had read it before, but was wanting to revisit and remember my own Japan trip.
Love Overdue was an adult romance featuring a librarian. Not my favorite, but it was okay. She never once mentioned reading a book. Puzzling. There were also some other things I didn't appreciate, but I kept reading because it was good enough. Not a high recommendation I guess. ;)
About Grace is an adult novel about a man who has dreams of events before they happen. He ends up fleeing his family to keep something from happening to one of them. His reasoning being that since he is part of the dream when bad things are happening, if he stays away, they can't happen. It was for book club and I enjoyed it for the most part. He was a scientist and I especially liked the snowflake information and references.
Sam Wu is Not Afraid of Ghosts was a humorous early chapter book with plenty of illustrations.
Lillybelle, a Damsel Not in Distress is a cute picture book about a young girl who is all about having agency and solving her own problems. She is not at all interested in waiting for someone to rescue her.
The Coming Week:
I'm still listening to the middle grade Root Magic. I am working my way through the short stories in Foreshadow. It will take ages, but I am also still reading the poetry of Audre Lorde and I am almost finished with The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying. I just picked up my library copy of Concrete Rose by Angie Thomas and will probably get started on that soon. I also bought the newest Renee Watson book, Love is a Revolution, that isn't actually supposed to be on sale yet, but was out at the bookstore. I hope you have a great week! I'm super excited to see which books are honored at the Youth Media Awards. I always enjoy that. :)
