One of the characters is writing a book about rom-com tropes and uses her friends' experiences. I found this very charming. Clean, yet steamy. Just right for me. I will read more. #SeriesRead2022 @TheSpineView #BBRC @LibrarianRyan

Raven wants to create masterpieces. But, what to do with the less than perfect doodles? There is a slight sinister aspect of this story that is probably not best for younger kids, especially those afraid of noises at night. But, I enjoyed it! Anything can become a masterpiece, and there is a subtle message about the importance of recycling! Letter U #PictureBook #BBRC

I was not impressed with this one…a group of friends decide to head out into the night with a #Flashlight to find a raccoon. The story did not really make sense to me, though I guess the concept was to introduce words with similar letter combinations. In any case, at least it completed a prompt for #EasyReader #BBRC .

Oh how I loved this one! The simple rhyming, the cute story, and the colorful illustrations. Witch flies through the sky on a broom and collects various animals on the way. This may be better for a slightly older audience, as I could see a younger child becoming scared over the dragon that makes an appearance. #PictureBook Letter R #BBRC

While this #EasyReader highlights tools to use in home construction and projects, such as a #Saw , I felt the images carried the story way more than the words. Granted, this is meant to be an introductory read for beginning readers, but I felt something was missing. Just a meh read for me. #BBRC

Wein does a good job here of picking a specific perspective on WWII that we don‘t get too often, making her characters come to life, and gracefully navigating that line of how devastating does it need to be to tell the story faithfully, and how redemptive does it need to be for the sake of the story.

Partly this book was what I expected - a confirmation of things I know & a pitch for lifestyle changes I believe in but haven‘t made yet, mixed with interesting new facts & ideas. And partly this book wasn‘t at all what I expected - it was funny! & it made me really nostalgic for the year I spent living on a working ecovillage where we actually produced about a third of our own food. All in all it was a great introduction to Barbara Kingsolver.

TheBookHippie I love this book. 3d
Cinfhen Ahhhh!! That‘s fabulous 💜I tried this one awhile ago but it wasn‘t holding my interest. Maybe I‘ll try again. 3d

Poor Amelia Bedelia! In this addition to the series, Amelia gets a tad mixed up and invites construction and chaos into the house. Following Mr Hardy‘s “to do” list, Amelia and the kids “work” on various projects, including using #Tape to create a picture window.

Amelia is hilarious, and her confusion is so groan worthy! #EasyReader #BBRC

megnews I love Amelia!!! 5d

I listened to this month‘s #MGBuddyRead on audio and I was pleasantly surprised. It‘s really difficult to do holocaust fiction well, but this is a nice take. It‘s sort of a parable within a parable, and while you know what‘s coming, the story is still strong enough that you can get lost in it and enjoy the magic for a bit before things get devastating. #BBRC Middle Grade Classroom #PopSugar2022 #ASocialHorrorBook @megnews @LibrarianRyan
