I had to rearrange my desk because the books I have queued up to review has gotten a lot larger. The overall effect makes me happy, but also haunts me.
Question of the Day: How do you keep up with writing book reviews?
In nature, orange means good things, like pumpkins, and juice, and autumn leaves, and sunsets. But when you paint something orange it usually means something not-so-good. Except, of course, if it’s Halloween. And even Halloween is scary sometimes.
–One Day and One Amazing Morning on Orange Street by Joanne Rocklin
If you know just one reader, you probably already know that we can’t help ourselves from bringing books into every conversation. Because stuff reminds us of what we’ve read. And what we’ve read is awesome. And everyone should be able to experience that awesomeness for themselves. Thus, the never-ending book recommendations. Sorry, not sorry.
For today, I’ll be sharing some of the books (I’m limiting myself to 10) that I CAN’T stop recommending. Please, if you like me even a little bit, read these books. And then come back and tell me so we can have a nice chat.
Books are a big part of my life all year ’round, but kicking off summer with a reading challenge has always been my favorite tradition. There’s something about that first day with the A/C on that makes me wild for a trip to the library…
That being said, it’s a lot easier for me to stay focused when there’s some sort of incentive attached, which is why I decided to participate in Middle Grade Carousel‘s first official #BookADayMay challenge!
