It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 9/4/17

4 Sep

I’m getting ready for vacation, so I took some time to request some titles from NetGalley to have some digital galleys to read while traveling. Digital books are not my favorite to read – I just love reading a real book, but when I travel, I don’t have enough room in my luggage for the number of books I want to read. So, digital books it is! While, I’m away, I have access to the following titles:

  • Anne of Green Gables by Mariah Marsden (graphic novel!)
  • Click’d by Tamara Ireland Stone
  • Elsie Mae Has Something to Say by Nancy J. Cavanaugh
  • The List by Patricia Forde
  • Moonlight Over Manhattan by Sarah Morgan
  • More Girls Who Rocked the World by Michelle Roehm McCann
  • Her Book Boyfriend by KR Grace
  • Ghosts of Greenglass House by Kate Milford
  • All the Wind In the World by Samantha Mabry
  • Just Friends by Dyan Sheldon
  • Tell Me That You’re My Mine by Victoria De La O

With sightseeing and traveling, I’m not sure how much time I’ll actually have to read, but I love having options to pick from and I’m so excited to read these titles!

Mark Your Calendars: National Book Festival

23 Aug

2017.jpg

The National Book Festival is a really cool experience! I’ve been a few times when it was held on the National Mall, (never at the Convention Center) and it’s a great place to celebrate books, authors, illustrators and meet other booklovers like yourself.

The National Book Festival brings authors and illustrators to the stage, book sales and autographing areas and special activities just for kids. It’s a great event to attend as a family to show kids how important reading is, plus how cool is it to be able to have your favorite book signed by the author? It’s definitely a memory a child will cherish forever. With authors like Kwame Alexander, Kate DiCamillo Gene Luen Yang, Angie Thomas and so many more, I’m bummed that I won’t be there this year. But, if you’ve got the time, take it from me, you’ve got to experience this great festival.

The best part is the Festival is free for everyone and will be held on Saturday, September 2, 2019 from 8:30am – 7:30pm. Check out the website for schedule information and more!

  3. Nugget and Fang: Friends Forever–or Snack Time? by Tammi Sauer, illustrated by Michael Slack
  4. The Three Little Fish and the Big Bad Shark by Ken Geist, illustrated by Julia Gorton
  5. I’m a Shark by Bob Shea
  6. Shark Lady: The True Story of How Eugenie Clark Became the Ocean’s Most Fearless Scientist by Jess Keating, illustrated by Marta Álvarez Miguéns
  7. Sharks! by Anne Schreiber
  8. Fly Guy Presents: Sharks by Tedd Arnold
  9. Magic Tree House #53: Merlin Missions, Shadow of the Shark by Mary Pope Osborne
  10. I Survived: The Shark Attacks of 1916 by Lauren Tarshis
