I feel very accomplished because last week I finished two novel-length books:
The Pull of Gravity by Gae Polisner
I really liked this story, I just wanted to know the characters more. I felt like the novel ended just as I was getting to know them.
Relish: My Life in the Kitchen by Lucy Knisley
I adored everything about this foodie graphic memoir. I will be writing a longer review of this one very soon!
Picture books I read and enjoyed last week:
Because You Are My Teacher by Sherry North, illustrated by Marcellus Hall
A beautiful extended metaphor for what all classrooms should be: a vessel for inquiry and exploration.
Gandhi: The March to the Sea by Alice B. McGinty, illustrated by Thomas Gonzalez
A great supplemental text to use when studying about the Salt March. This book is way more interesting than a dry, voiceless social studies textbook.
Last week I reviewed:
How to Save a Life by Sara Zarr
The Frank Show by David Mackintosh
The Chew: Food. Life. Fun
The Lucy Variations by Sara Zarr
Currently (still) listening:
Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell
Until I Die by Amy Plum
