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 (6/1/20-6/7/20).

Annamarie’s Reading

Picture Books & Readers:

Graphic Novels:

Everything Else:

Note: My reading is slowing down a little, and I expect it to continue to do so between real-world issues taking precedence and the return to working in the library. Not looking forward to that commute.

Reading Highlights:

  • Love is Powerful – Timely picture book focusing on promoting love and kindness and the power of peaceful protest.
  • Sherlock Bones – Fun, quick mystery that is written and illustrated in a style that will really appeal to Bad Guys fans.
  • Lightfall – Yet another Amulet readalike that will have a great audience. Looking forward to the rest of the series. I hate to say “yet another” because all three of these graphic novels from the last few weeks are really strong on their own–it just feels odd to be reading them in such succession.
  • Measuring Up – Cooking, friendship struggles, and a much needed diverse, realistic fiction graphic novel great for fans of Smile.
  • What Lane? – Torrey Maldonado does great work again with this realistic fiction story of a young mixed boy beginning to recognize the differences in his (white and black) friend groups and the acts of racism that surround him everyday. Particularly great because while the main characters are in middle school, I feel comfortable handing this to a 3rd-4th grader.
  • Eels – Wow, eels are incredibly weird, strange creatures. Well written, appealing non-fiction that is easy to booktalk.
