While this specific book wasn‘t on my TBR list I almost want to count it since it was a book I specifically picked up to continue towards completion of #BBRC (MG read over 250 pgs). This was a very cute book that didn‘t make me groan. I guess because it involves family, baking, and magic. I might actually pick up the rest as I enjoyed the concept and hints at future elements.

Not my cup of tea, but at least I can count it for a holiday read AND #BBRC since I haven‘t been tackling that challenge lately.

Official Wrap-up for the #MiddleGradeMadeEasy portion of #BBRC! These were all solid picks that I really enjoyed, with the exception of Heidi. I'm hoping to read the rest of the Percy Jackson series over winter break.

On to #TeenAngst...highly appropriate as we have our fair share of early teen angst in my home these days! 😂

#MGME

LibrarianRyan Yeahhhh. Congrats. 2mo
4thhouseontheleft @LibrarianRyan Thanks! @Riveted_Reader_Melissa I did too! Maya and I both read it in August, it was her summer reading assignment. 2mo

I really enjoyed this! It was a fun and entertaining read, I can see why kids love this series. I‘ll definitely be reading the others soon.

And this fulfills my last prompt for the #MGME portion of #BBRC (cover change mid-series). I‘ll be updating my google form tomorrow, on to #teenangst!

CarolynM I was wondering what to choose for the cover change prompt. I might give this one a go too🙂 2mo
Blh87 Such a good series! The Heroes of Olympus series that followed this series was also SO good! 2mo
LibrarianRyan Yeahhhh. @CarolynM there are a bunch of suggestion on my time line under #coverchangemidseries (I think ) 2mo

LibrarianRyan @CarolynM I lied. There are a few under that. I‘ll look up the tag I used for all the others tomorrow morning. 2mo
veritysalter Ah a fellow lover of “crackle TV”!! 🔥🔥🔥 I use it in my garden room that doesn‘t have a fire, the best noise to read to. 2mo
4thhouseontheleft @veritysalter 😂😂 YesX I love the sound! We actually have a gas fireplace in this room, but sometimes I want the sound without the heat. 🔥 2mo
veritysalter @4thhouseontheleft Best thing on YouTube, it gives off the cosy vibes, with a book, a blanket and a warm drink (dog or cat optional) - heaven. Happy reading 📖 xx 2mo

#WeeklyForecast

The two on the bottom left & center are #currentreads which I hope to finish soon. On my plate for the week includes selections for #NFNov & #nonfiction2019 and my last book for #mgme #bbrc which also overlaps with a #pop19 prompt.

The Goodreads Award nominees are announced this week, so I may throw this forecast out the window then. 🤣💨

Cinfhen Ha!!! Bonus points for honesty!!!! 3mo
4thhouseontheleft @Cinfhen 😁😁 I have some 2019 releases on the hold shelf at the library, just waiting till Nov 5 to see if they make the GR nominations list. Top of that list is 3mo
Cinfhen That book by Ocean Vuong is STUNNING (edited) 3mo
4thhouseontheleft @Cinfhen I remember your review! It stuck out, and everyone on Litsy seems to love it. #blameLitsy 3mo

Maleeka is a bright middle schooler who comes from an impoverished home, & is constantly teased over her dark complexion. As a result, she struggles with low self-esteem and finding her identity. It‘s complexity & depth make this a great book for a MS novel study.

Maya is currently working on an identity project to finish up this unit. We both loved the book, and it has spurred some wonderful dinner conversations.

LibrarianRyan 👍 😂 😁 😂 3mo

Taking a break from Halloween and #screamathon reading to read the current novel study in Maya‘s Language Arts class.

I‘m going to count this for #bbrc #mgme #newclassic - I think it fits that prompt?

With a huge step count after handing out campaign flyers today, I‘m also not moving the rest of the night, and enjoying a salted caramel 🍎 cider! #brcr4

This was my daughter‘s favorite book in 3rd grade, although as a 6th grader, I think she relates better now to the changing friendships and finding your identity themes in this excellent story. I really loved this, and would love to see a sequel!

#bbrc #middlegrade #mgme recommend by a kid

I‘ve been at an impasse all day trying to decide which book from my #tbrpile to pick up next. So I left it up to chance with a random draw...High Holiday Porn it is! @AmyG I‘ll be sending it on to you afterwards!

Roller Girl was my 2nd draw, so that will be next. 😃

My remaining #bbrc #mgme books will just have to wait a little bit longer. 😃

AmyG Ha! Thank you. 😘 4mo

Grace Lin wrote the book she wished she had as a kid, but it is a lovely treat for all kids! It would be a great option as a read aloud for early elementary. It‘s a sweet story of friendship, family traditions, and growing up Asian American in a predominately white community.

LibrarianRyan such a good book. 4mo
Zoes_Human Grace Lin is one of my absolute favorite kid's authors. 4mo
4thhouseontheleft @LibrarianRyan It is! @Zoes_Human this is the 2nd book of hers that I have read and I really liked them both! 4mo
