Spine poetry is hard work #riotgrams
Hoping to start this one today. I haven't have much time for my digital reads lately, I'm afraid I'm going to lose my holds and have to start over. But my reading time has been limited and will continue to be because life gets busy this time of year with baseball and spring break and subbing. Busy busy. ❤️⚾️
Independent Bookstore Day stop #2: Secret Garden Books (hi @BeckyMerilatt )! To get the Rainbow Rowell short, you had to buy a YA book. DARN. (Kelly Barnhill is amazing, and if you haven't read Girl Who Drank the Moon, RUN DON'T WALK.) So excited to read this one! On to store 3! @RavenRenegade
I adored this book; Barnhill manages to turn many fairy tale tropes on their head without ever falling into the cliches of some modern retellings. It's fresh, thought-provoking, surprising, and full of such real characters I ended up laughing and crying with them. While I was happy to read this just for me, it'd also be great as a readalong with any older (8-9+) children in your life. The audio version has a skillful narrator too.
