It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

We are joining the blog trend of Monday posts about what we have read during the last week (5/25/20-5/31/20).

Annamarie’s Reading

Picture Books & Readers:

Graphic Novels:

Everything Else:

Note: This week was very picture book heavy, with a ton of great eARCs mixed in with Hoopla Bonus Borrows (many of which aren’t included here because they are fairly well known books, and isn’t this list long enough?). Finished the Babymouse series this week and almost done with Nikki & Deja.

Reading Highlights:

  • Animals Brag About Their Bottoms – This is just another adorable picture book title where it is exactly as advertised–animals brag about their big, stripey, furry, unique bottoms. Somehow mixes what will be a humorous read aloud about animals with body positivity.
  • Superhero Gran – This one stood out to me as a great storytime book, especially with the amount of grandparents we have in our community.
  • This is a Book of Shapes – Is it terrible that I wish this book didn’t have the animal inserts and humor and was literally a book of “this is a square” with an illustration of a square on a white background (about two thirds of the book is formatted like this)? Why can’t we have more really, really simple books that don’t try to be more? Do publishers have any idea have many copies I would beg my library to purchase that were literally just “A” “a” on a white background that were big enough to trace with a finger?
  • Fence: Rivals – Fence is back! More Fence! More Fence!

    What a lovely collection of books! I laughed out loud at Animals Brag About Their Bottoms. I’m really excited aobut Julián at the Wedding. I adored Julián Is a Mermaid.

    I just got my copy of Mason Mooney: Paranormal Investigator and it is a gorgeous book! It’s funny, weird in all the right ways, and full of beautiful illustrations. Kids will love this, especially for Halloween.
