Last Week’s Reads:
The only middle grade book I managed to get through last week was Stella by Starlight (4 stars). This was an excellent book, but the ending left me disappointed. I also read The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead, Scrappy Little Nobody by Anna Kendrick and Manage Your Day to Day edited by Jocelyn Glei to round out the week.
This Week’s Reads:
Sigh…I am plugging my way through The Nix by Nathaniel Hill. It’s a must-read because I’m facilitating our library book club next week, and I make it a priority to read all the books, but this is a hard one for me to finish because it’s so long and really don’t do well with long books. I am 75% of the way through it, so with any luck, I will be reading something more appealing very soon. I’ve started Look Me In the Eye by John Elder Robison (but had to abandon it when I kept getting his childhood mixed up with the main character in The Nix), and have a few self-improvement books on my shelf. My next middle grade read will by Caleb and Kit by Beth Vrabel.
