Last week I read:
Mister and Lady Day: Billie Holiday and the Dog Who Loved Her by Amy Novesky, illustrated by Vanessa Brantley Newman
The Boy Who Loved Math: The Improbable Life of Paul Erdos by Deborah Heiligman, illustrated by LeUyen Pham
I really enjoyed both of these picture book biographies. The text and illustrations paired perfectly with each other.
Knuffle Bunny Too: A Case of Mistaken Identity by Mo Willems
What can I say? Can you ever go wrong with a Mo Willems book? I absolutely love the concept of both this book and the first book, having the illustrated pictures paired with a real photographic background.
Guinea Dog 2 by Patrick Jennings
Not as good as the first one, but still pretty good.
Last week I finished listening to:
Until I Die by Amy Plum
I really enjoyed Die for Me, the first book in the Revenants series but this book just didn't do it for me initially. The vivid Parisian setting came alive in the first book and was my main reason for loving the story. I didn't feel the setting and characters the same way I did in the first book and ended up abandoning upon first reading. Then I had the opportunity to listen to the audio and Julia Whelan must just have a way of bringing stories to life because I enjoyed this book much better as an audiobook than a regular book. I will be sure to listen to the third book on audio as well.
