IMWAYR: Fall Picture Books, a Story Collection, and a Bonus

Leave a comment

Bonus comes first today — THE SILENCE BETWEEN US by Alison Gervais (Blink YA Books) comes out TOMORROW! Maya Harris must leave Pratt School for the Deaf and attend a hearing school — for her senior year in high school! It’s bad enough being the new girl, but she needs a personal interpreter for every class. (summary from Blink) I got to read this book as an ARC (advanced reader copy) and it is amazing! I’ve been waiting for-ev-er (Well, it seems like forever) for this one to publish, and now it’s here. Get your copy tomorrow from your nearest Indie bookseller, or order from The Brain Lair Bookstore (South Bend, IN).

Fall Picture Books are here! I was lucky to receive these and I will devour them this week (Thank you to for the gift!): Truman by Jean Reidy, The Rabbit Listened by Cori Doerrfeld, Moonshot: The Flight of Apollo 11 by Brian Floca, Where Are You From? by Jaime Kim, My Papi Has a Motorcycle by Isabel Quintero, and When You Are Brave by Pat Zietlow Miller (which also gets the “coolest cover award,” from me, this week).

The #WNDB (We Need Diverse Books) story collection, The Hero Next Door (edited by the fabulous Olugbemisola Rhuday-Perkovich) was also in my gift box today. I’ll need another copy of this for the school library, I’m sure.

It’s Monday! What are YOU reading?

It’s Monday! What are you Reading? is a meme hosted by Kathryn at Book Date. It is a great way to recap what you read and/or reviewed the previous week and to plan out your reading and reviews for the upcoming week. It’s also a great chance to see what others are reading right now…you just might discover your next “must-read” book!

Kellee Moye, of Unleashing Readers, and I decided to give It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? a kidlit focus. If you read and review books in children’s literature – picture books, chapter books, middle grade novels, young adult novels, anything in the world of kidlit – join us! We love this meme and think you will, too. We encourage everyone who participates to visit at least three of the other kidlit book bloggers that link up and leave comments for them.
