Show & Tell – Book A Day in May


A trip to the library this week means my stack of finished books is a little less impressive, but the new titles I picked up are providing plenty of incentive to keep up with my goal of reading a book a day.

Freshly added to the stack this week:

14. The Power of Poppy Pendle by Natasha Lowe
15. The League of Beastly Dreadfuls by Holly Grant
16. Knights of the Kitchen Table by Jon Scieszka
17. Everything on a Waffle by Polly Horvath
18. Clementine, Friend of the Week by Sara Pennypacker
19. Dear America: So Far from Home by Barry Danenburg


Question of the Day: What genres do you read when you need a break from the usual?


Favorite Fiction – Dear America

I could curl up and read about a girl who had to sell pig bristles to make money, or sisters who supported the troops by sewing coats for cute boys. In a way, history was exciting and unimaginable as any fantasy world.

Question of the Day: What’s your favorite historical fiction?
