10% in and I already know this is the most important YA book of the decade.
#currentlyreading Run by Kody Keplinger.
So good. Have you read it? What did you think?
How do you all feel about setting YA books in the 1980s? Do current teens even wax nostalgic about the 80s like people my age (30+) do? Are books set in the 80s meant more for us nostalgia seekers or for actual teens?
#currentlyreading We Are Still Tornados. I really like the book, but have to wonder why it's YA and not an adult book for older millennials/GenXers with crossover appeal.
This book is fantastic. #middlegrade #historicalfiction at its best. Littlebeth Morgan is sent to San Francisco to live with her proper aunt (who isnt so proper) and endures the 1906 earthquake. It's so full of heart and so fantastic. I can't rave about it enough.
I'd say it's for ages 7 and up. I was an advanced reader and could have read it independently at 7, but your kid may be different.
Review on talesbetweenthepages.com on Wednesday.
I can't believe this book only has 3.5 stars. I just finished it and it's heartbreaking and beautiful and amazing and ... and ...
This is the best YA I've read this year. Hands down. It tackles real anxiety issues, real friendship, and real family problem, all with so much heart.
Review on Tales Between the Pages next week.
Remember being in seventh grade? I do. And this book hits the nail on the head. Bullies, cattiness, awkward body things, period talk, and a girl just looking to fit in with her friend group and figure out who her true friends are. If you love #middlegradebooks like I do, you'll love Truth or Dare.
Look for the formal review on Tales Between the Pages soon.
Good morning, littens! It's blogging day around these parts. I've got reviews to write and too many books to read on my Kindle.
I think my next read will be How to Keep a Boy from Kissing You by Tara Eglington. Have any of you read it? Thoughts?
