Show & Tell – Winter Reading Wrap-Up

My reading this year has felt slow at best, but looking back over the last couple months I’m surprised by the total number of books I’ve finished. This is why we keep track of our progress, friends!


While I was really hoping to kick off 2019 with a bingo, I was a little late to realize any books on out shelf with griffons were on the  L O N G  side! Oops.

Graphic Novel: The Tea Dragon Society by Katie O’Neill
A Book You Started Last Year: The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Catherynne M. Valente

Title Starts with an ‘N’: The New Kid at School by Kate McMullan
A Book by a Favorite Author: The Fairy’s Mistake by Gail Carson Levine



I came into February determined to read with a plan. For some reason I had some trouble getting the themes on the board to line up with the books on my To-Read pile, but a few timely recommendations saved me from repeating the near-miss from January. Whew!
