Genre Booklists for Summer 2018

16 Jul

I know we’re still in the middle of summer, but I’ve filled this blog with ten weeks of genre-focused booklists for toddlers to teens, hoping to give every kid something they’ll be interested in reading during this school break. There are over 500 titles in these lists and are available on my blog and can also be found on Pinterest.



Historical Fiction


Magical Realism


Funny (Humor)

Science Fiction

Scary (Horror)

Realistic Fiction

Fairy Tale


It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 7/16/18

16 Jul

This past week, my family went down the shore for a family reunion of sorts with almost my entire dad’s side of the family. That means at any given time there were about 15 people in a beach house! And even with two trips back and forth to work for meetings, I was able to read 3 books and start another one!

I grabbed a bunch of YA titles that I’ve been hearing about and just haven’t gotten a chance to read. I was able to read:

  • American Panda by Gloria Chao
  • A Girl Like That by Tanaz Bhathena
  • I Will Always Write Back: How One Letter Changes Two Lives by Caitlin Alifirenka, Martin Ganda with Liz Welch

I also just started The Adventures of a Girl Called Bicycle by Christina Uss. I’ve also got a few books coming in as holds this week at work, so I’m hoping to get a chance to a few of these as well:

  • Twilight Chant by Holly Thompson
  • The House That Lou Built by Mae Respicio
  • The Boy, the Boat, and the Beast by Samantha M. Clark
