We Are Still Tornadoes | Susan Mullen, Michael Kun

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.

Under the Ashes | Cindy Rankin

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.

#afternoonread is Under the Ashes by Cindy Rankin. It's a really good #middlegrade #historicalfiction book set just before the San Francisco earthquake. I'm enjoying it so far.

I'm conflicted here. I was annoyed by the first half and totally engrossed with the second half. It's a cute comedy of errors that retells Much Ado About Nothing.

Official review is up at www.talesbetweenthepages.com

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.

This is a solid #middlegrade not without its problems, but the setting is fantastic and I loved the main character and his two friends. Formal review goes live tomorrow morning on talesbetweenthepages.com

I've read this book before, but my husband and I listened to the audio version on our drive to MA. Sherman Alexie's narration makes the it even better. Highly recommended on audio! (in print too)

Truth or Dare | Barbara Dee

Pickpick

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.

Compulsively readable. I loved the guy POV. My only issue is that the "fat chick" isn't really fat. But otherwise, ❤. 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?

Lacythebookworm What type of notebook do you use for your planner? 6y

SarahSaysRead Haven't read that but I can't wait to read IQ! It sounds so good. 6y
Lacythebookworm I use a Get to Work Book for planning, but my best friend uses a Leuchhturm for her bullet journal. She's a huge fan! 6y

An abstract way of considering the end of the world. Beautiful prose
