Bodega Dreams | Ernesto B. Quinonez

I recently started volunteering for the non-profit organization, Brooklyn Book Bodega. The mission of BBB is to increase the number of 100+ book homes for kids 0-18 in NYC. I had the pleasure of volunteering at their event last week!

From 11/15-11/22, a portion of each sale on barnesandnoble.com using the special voucher code #12562567 goes to Brooklyn Book Bodega. Enter the code where it says "Apply Bookfair ID" at checkout.

This reads like a thriller but still had me quietly crying throughout. It‘ll make you angry but still give you hope. Thrilled I will be leading a discussion of this beautiful book tomorrow at work with my colleagues and students.

Just got this from Book Depository on the recommendation of Simon Savidge over at Savidge Reads on YouTube! It‘s not coming out in the US until August, and he made it sound so intriguing I just couldn‘t wait. That cover! Those end pages!

Wow. I was concerned when one of the timelines began August 2001...but I did not see that ending coming. Beautiful story.

I randomly decided to reorganize my books at 1am (as you do). I usually sort by height, and now it‘s sectioned by author. Don‘t quite know how I feel about it yet. Thoughts? How do you arrange your books?

sprainedbrain That is impressive! My shelves are sorted by tbr and read, but that‘s where the organization stops. 😬 Super jealous of your clothbound collection! I only have four so far, but plan to add many more. 😍 13mo

Looking at the reviews, this is definitely a polarizing book. I was unsure at first, but the beautiful prose kept me going. Very interesting story.

It was really more of a so-so read, but I‘m giving it a thumbs up because it was middle grade, and I‘m not used to middle grade, nor am I the intended audience. Will continue the series as it‘s published.

Interesting enough that I didn‘t DNF, but I didn‘t really get the point. There was a lot of name dropping and it was jarring to have so many real famous people mentioned in a fiction book. Fast read but likely forgettable.

Confession: I love the young royals, especially Kate! Good biography, although her pre-William life was a little drawn out.

Just created a readathon to motivate myself to read 7 more books before 2019, which would complete my Goodreads goal. Anyone interested? https://www.facebook.com/events/337497447081799/?ti=ia

Really interesting and compulsively readable. Made me want to research more on this topic, which I think is the sign of a great nonfiction read.

2018 has been the year of non-fiction for me. Here are all my unread non-fiction books. I don‘t think I‘ve ever had this many on my owned tbr. Currently reading The Psychopath Test.

When I got to the chapter on election night I had to take a 2 month break before finishing. Otherwise I loved hearing Pfeiffer‘s insider take on Obama and Trump. Worth a listen (Pfeiffer narrated).

I wasn‘t interested in this book when it was a botm book, but then I saw a review that made it sound like exactly what I needed. It was. Reminded me a little of Eleanor Oliphant. Interesting way to tell a story...definitely kept me listening.
