I have had an awesome last couple weeks of reading! I was on such a reading high after The Real Boy and Wake Up Missing that I actually had a hard time deciding what to read next. I bounced around a little bit before getting back into my groove. Here are the books I have read and enjoyed the last two weeks!
Middle Grade Books
The Real Boy by Anne Ursu (review here)
Wake Up Missing by Kate Messner
I loved this book...as I do everything Kate Messner has written. I wrote a review, but I am going to post it closer to the release date in September. I was lucky enough to borrow an ARC of the two books above, but that is usually not the case. I always get frustrated reading about books that I can't get my hands on yet! (But I was so excited about The Real Boy that I posted that one already!)
This Journal Belongs to Ratchet by Nancy J. Cavanaugh (review here)
Bomb by Steve Sheinkin (review here)
Escape From Mr. Lemoncello's Library by Chris Grabenstein
I am going to review this one on Wednesday. I think I have decided to use it as my first read aloud of the year!
The Matchbox Diary by Paul Fleischman
The Cuckoo's Calling by Robert Galbraith (aka J.K. Rowling)
I am not a big fan of murder mysteries...but learning that J.K. Rowling had a new book out? I had to read it! I was actually on Twitter when this news came out...I quick clicked over to my Worthington Library App and requested it. I was number 4 on the list...and when I picked it up this week, there were over 1,000 requests for it! I was actually very proud of myself for my quick thinking. This was a FANTASTIC book! I am looking forward to the next book starring Cormoran Strike!
