20894026This weekend I was able to finish up The Madman of Piney Woods by Christopher Paul Curtis, just in the nick of time for the Youth Media Awards, but surprising he didn’t win or receive an honor for this book.  I thought surely he would have – a strong book with fully developed characters and interesting storyline.

15296839I also got the chance to read Everybody Paints!: The Lives and Art of the Wyeth Family by Susan Goldman Rubin – a brief biography of the Wyeth family that is set right here in my own backyard – the Brandywine River Valley.  I’m excited to take an afternoon and explore the Brandywine River Museum of Art which holds an extensive collection from the Wyeth family.

16064347I also just finished up this morning, Operation Bunny by Sally Gardner – a new fairy detective agency series about a talking cat, a young girl, and a witch up to no good.  A great suggestion to kids looking for something a little kooky and maybe even reluctant readers.  It’s a quick read!

This week, I’m going to continue on my quest to finish up the last few books on the New York Public Library’s Children’s Books 100 Titles for Reading and Sharing 2014.  I think I only have 13 books left!

    I just finished the Blood of Olympus, the last book in Rick Riordan’s latest series – I’ve more or less been enjoying the series, but I was pretty disappointed by this last one.

      With series, I try and read a book or two (to at least get the idea), but I usually don’t have time to finish the series because I’m reading so many other things (unless it’s a series I’m really enjoying)!
