It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 9/21/15

23281716 23507745 23615709 (1)This week I read Appleblossom the Possum written by Holly Goldberg Sloan which is a very different style from her previous work County By 7s.  It’s an adorable story about a little possum who accidentally falls down a chimney and with the help of her brothers is able to escape.  It’s an adorable story of family, growing up, and I think it will make a great read aloud for kids!  I also read Goodbye Stranger by Rebecca Stead which I read in one sitting and absolutely loved!  I wasn’t the biggest fan of her other novels, but this one was amazing!  With a story that has five characters that are the main focus.  It’s a great coming of age story!  And right now, I’m in the middle of Serafina and the Black Cloak by Robert Beatty – it’s a creepy story of a haunted wood, disappearing children and a new friendship that will help solve the mystery of it all.

This week, I’ve got a few more middle grade/YA books before I start in my official capacity as a judge for the elementary/middle grade nonfiction category for the CYBILS.

  • Throne of Glass by Sarah Maas
  • Circus Mirandus by Cassie Beasley
  • The Curious World of Calpurnia Tate by Jacqueline Kelly
  • The Penderwicks in Spring by Jeanne Birdsall
