The holidays kept me busy, but it has been so wonderful getting a chance to read. I look forward to reading even more next week. I have a couple of #mustreadin2014 books I am trying to finish up before midnight Thursday!
Here's what I got to this week:
All the World by Liz Garton Scanlon
I can't believe I missed this book for so long. The message is sweet, but it's the illustrations that just kept my eyes on the pages. Marla Frazee is amazing. I guess that's why it was a Caldecott Honor book.
The Boy and His Violin by Gavin Curtis
I picked this one up because it was mentioned in Jennifer Serravallo's Small Groups book. It is a great book for so many comprehension strategies.
A Letter for Leo by Sergio Ruzzier
Sweet friendship story. I liked it, but saw some other stronger stories this year.
Santa Clauses: Poems from the North Pole by Bob Raczka
My daughter and I counted down to Christmas by reading a haiku each night. If you haven't seen this amazing book, be sure to check it out before next December! It's a beautiful addition to your holiday collection.
The Runaway King by Jennifer Nielson
How I loved going back to Sage's world! Once I got drawn into the story, it was hard to put down.
My True Love Gave to Me edited by Stephanie Perkins
I adored this collection of young adult holiday stories. Short stories always amaze me - how quick and tight the story must be. Great writing.
I have two books on my #mustreadin2014 list that I'm determined to get to:
Better Nate Than Ever
The Thing About Georgie
Happy Reading, everyone. Can't wait to see what 2015 brings!
