Today, one of my students surprised me with two Rainbow Rowell books! With my name!! By far one of the coolest gifts I‘ve ever received. One of the student‘s relatives is good friends with the author! What a small world.
I had such high hopes for this one - penguins and vampires for the win!! - but I found this just meh. When the Draculas visit the zoo, they love to see all of the animals, especially the penguins. But, what happens when a big switch occurs?
Sadly, this one is just not for me. Letter V #PictureBook #BBRC
This is exactly what I hoped it would be - an utterly bonkers, B-movie of an audiobook. Tons of gruesome deaths and injuries, cheesy dialogue but some one-liners that had me 😆 😆, so many types of monsters!, and just enough of a plot and character development to be somewhat credible but not too much because that‘s not why we‘re hear, right? Right. Put this one on your list for October (or anytime you need ridiculous B-movie horror). #nywd
Well, I have Covid. Luckily it‘s pretty mild (yay vaccines), but I‘m still super tired after working from home today. Don‘t think I can focus on a physical book, but starting an audiobook I can handle - especially one that looks as bonkers (in the best way possible) as this #NewYearWhoDis pick!
A funny store especially for anyone who has ever had a black cat. Vivid art with lots of detail. Great for themes of colors, cats, and Halloween with subtle messaging about adapting the environment to suit the being instead of changing the being for the environment. Suitable for ages 3 to 7.
Happy New Year! Starting the reading year off with a graphic novel and my first #NYWD pick.
A high school senior, oblivious to girls, gets help from his pumpkin patch BFF in a last ditch effort to talk to the girl he likes from afar.
The story may be a little predictable, but it serves as comfort food - kind of like the patch foods sampled throughout the book. Faith Erin Hicks did a great job illustrating.
