#BBRC #A2Z #LetterP This is another awesome Aussie author, he also wrote the Pig The Pug books. This is adorable. It‘s all about a piranha called Brian who‘s upset his friends by preferring fruit instead of bums! I highly recommend his books for your toddlers, it‘s rhyming and it‘s funny in a little kid way which they‘ll love. My favourite modern picture book so far.

LibrarianRyan Love this author! 4mo

At the suggestion of @LauraJ I just read this cute poetic Picture Book for my #A2Z for #BBRC.

These illustrations are great, but the rhyming story is what really wins in this one. And the wonderful ending. This is a book I‘d give as a gift!

LibrarianRyan 👍🏻😁❤️ 5mo

Hooked_on_books I have no interest in picture books, but I just love the title! This challenge looked like fun but there are too many kids‘ books on it to entice me. Maybe someday after I dig out from TBR mountain. I hope you have fun with it! 5mo
Soubhiville @Hooked_on_books I have fun reading kids books occasionally. The one thing I feel like I missed out on by skipping having kids is the opportunity to read to them. I‘m planning to reread a bunch of my own books I still have from my childhood as part of the challenge. 😊 5mo
Hooked_on_books @Soubhiville That‘s a great idea. It‘ll be a nice walk down memory lane. I don‘t have any of my books from childhood, but I‘m not terribly sentimental, so I‘m ok with that. Though I am occasionally tempted to track down and read a Sweet Valley High book, even though I know it‘ll be awful. 🙄😂 5mo
Soubhiville @Hooked_on_books oh yeah, it‘ll be terrible! I read one last summer and it was bad 🤣. 5mo

This was my #LetterP for #LitsyAtoZ in translation. It was a good, solid story but it took me FOREVER to get into it. I‘m not sure what it was about the writing (or maybe the translation!) that put me off, but it just never really grabbed hold of me.

I liked the book but didn‘t exactly love it. While the premise was interesting, I thought that it could have had a more cohesive story than it did. 3.75 ⭐️#bookstagram #litsyatz2019 #litsyatoz #letterp #p

This is one of our favorite series! Aaron Blabey is really funny and Pig is such a pain! Jo read this out loud for #LetterP in our #bbrc #PictureBooksAtoZ challenge. What?! You haven't heard? Check out @LibrarianRyan and the Birth and Beyond Reading Challenge! 😍

LibrarianRyan Awesome! You know the challenge doesn‘t start til July 1. But prep reading is awesome. Plus I love this book. ❤️❤️❤️ 6mo
IamIamIam @LibrarianRyan I actually didn't know it started July 1st!!! Lol, either I'm late to the party or I'm jumping the gun. There's no happy medium! 😂😂 Plus, they're still in reading mode so I'm going to take advantage now! 6mo
LibrarianRyan @IamIamIam I totally agree! Plus the hype from summer reading etc. 6mo

16-year-old Nora goes missing on Halloween. Her male peers speculate what happened to her as they grow into adulthood. The timeline switches back and forth from their teenage years to adulthood. Powerful writing that definitely stirs up nostalgia. #MountTBR #LitsyAtoZ #LetterP #ReadingUSA2019 #Kentucky (Hannah is a professor at the University of Kentucky.)

Hooked_on_books Sounds interesting. I have one of her books on my nook. Good to know—I can use it for Kentucky. 8mo
Librarybelle Sounds interesting! 8mo
BarbaraBB Sounds good! 8mo
Kaye Sounds interesting. I like what she wrote with her autograph. 😊 8mo

There were some great moments in the book. Wasn‘t my favourite and it was a fine addition to the series. 4⭐️ #Litsyatz #letterp #p

The Party | Robyn Harding

Mehso-so

When an innocent sweet sixteen party goes horribly wrong, questions about culpability are raised, a bitter lawsuit ensues, and secrets are revealed. The Party immediately grabbed my attention and kept me interested, and it was shaping up to be a pretty solid domestic thriller. However, the ending was a major letdown and it was lacking in suspense and tension. I loved Harding‘s other book, Her Pretty Face, but this one was meh. #LitsyAtoZ #LetterP

I just heard of this book for the first time recently, but it‘s comparisons to one of my favorite films, Pretty in Pink, instantly intrigued me. #litsyatoz #letterp
