IMWAYR: Several Ways to Read


There are several ways to read and last week I tried audiobooks. This week I’m hitting my NetGalley TBR list and revisiting a favorite character with a new story.

On NetGalley (Thank you for the approval, Delacorte Press.): The Assignment by Lisa M. Wiemer (due August 25, 2020).

According to the publisher’s description, The Assignment is based on real-life events of antisemitism in a community and follows the vein of the classic, The Wave by Todd Strasser (1981). I’m sure, as a teacher-librarian, I’ll find this gripping and powerful.

One of my favorite picture book authors is Ryan T. Higgins. He released another “Penelope” title and I can’t wait to share it with my granddaughter. We Will ROCK Our Classmates came out last week (Disney-Hyperion); this is another adventure after Penelope tried to eat classmates in the 2018 book, We Don’t Eat Our Classmates. I hear it’s ROCKIN’!




It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?

This meme follows a hosted readers group and 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 Jennifer Vincent at Teach Mentor Texts 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.
