I am at my internship for thirty more minutes of parent-teacher night but we've only had a few students leading their parents into the library. So it's been pretty chill. And because comps were Monday I am back on my multi-book-reading horse. YES!
The Stolen One
By Suzanne Crowley
I'd forgotten how much I love Renaissance historical fiction! And the main character that looks like me? Awesome! I actually didn't like the protagonist too much at the start but she certainly grew on me. And I just love when historical fiction picks up lost threads of history -- in this case Mary, lost daughter of Katherine Parr -- and creates a believable story. The Eternal Smile: Three Stories
By Gene Luen Yang and Derek Kirk Kim
This is by the same guy(s) that did American Born Chinese
which made a lot more sense. I liked it much more. I understood how Goku's story was woven into the realistic narrative but in this one, I just didn't get the point of the Urgent Question
story. Nappy Hair
by Carolivia Herron, illustrated by Joe Cepeda
Such a cute story!!!
I'm reading three books at once right now and finally have Mockingjay
ready to start as soon as I have my reading done for the book club. I just wish the rest of my life was a bit better. /le sigh
