Last week I finished reading:
Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys
OMG! This book was so good! Between Shades of Gray is a hard act to follow and while nowhere near as moving as her first novel, Sepetys's sophomore novel is equally as compelling. I will write a longer, thorough review closer to the pub date.
Last week I finished listening:
The Pioneer Woman: High Heels to Tractor Wheels by Ree Drummond
I love watching Pioneer Woman's Food Network show. Her family just makes me happy. And I equally loved listening to her narrate her own memoir. I hope she starts dipping her toe into the world of fiction too because I think she has a real talent for writing.
Picture books I read and enjoyed last week:
Cat the Cat, Who is That? and What's Your Sound, Hound the Hound? by Mo Willems
Just when I thought these books would be too simplistic for my liking, Mo Willems proves once again why he is a children's picture book powerhouse. \
Creepy Carrots by Aaron Reynolds, illustrated by Peter Brown
Homer by Elisha Cooper
Just One Day by Gayle Forman
I'm absolutely loving this book so far!
The Diviners by Libba Bray
Very creepy book. Glad I listen to this on my drive to and from work and not right before bed!
