Book Journey, Jen over at Teach Mentor Texts along with Kellee and Ricki at Unleashing Readers also host a kidlit version of It's Monday! What are You Reading?
My Monday posts are generally just a highlight of what I've been reading
during the week so if you'd like to see all that I've been reading,
follow my Goodreads page.
Last week I reviewed:
The Schwa Was Here by Neal Shusterman
A Fine Dessert: Four Centuries, Four Families, One Delicious Treat by Emily Jenkins, illustrated by Sophie Blackall
Last week I finished reading:
Enchanted Air by Margarita Engle
don't think my mind can fully process yet how much I loved Margarita
Engle's beautiful memoir in verse. I need to come back and write a
longer review when I'm not feeling ALL THE THINGS all at once.
of Jacqueline Woodson's Brown Girl Dreaming will love Margarita Engle's story of being caught between two countries and two loyalties during the height of the Cold War and Cuban Missile Crisis.
Put this book on your TBR list and look for it to hit bookstores in
