I read a few books in the past month, of course. Here's the lineup:
The Plague of Doves - Louise Erdrich
Seeker - William Nicholson
Clash of the Sky Galleons - Chris Riddell and Paul Stewart (Edge Chronicles)
Into the Dark - Peter Abrahams (An Echo Falls mystery)
Little Brother - Cory Doctorow
One Hundred Years of Solitude - Gabriel Garcia Marquez
The Wall and the Wing - Laura Ruby (one of Hannah's new favorites)
An Abundance of Katherines - John Green
Right now I am reading Sold by Patricia McCormick and Hannah & I are reading Savvy by Ingrid Law together.
I also had an idea for Poetry Friday - haiku reviews. Hopefully I'll remember this Friday. I thought this might be better for me than trying to write critical or descriptive reviews, as I feel like I tend to ramble. Whenever I try to talk too much about a particular book, especially plot, I flashback to my 5th grade field trip where we met our penpals and I responded to the librarian's request to talk about the book I was reading with what felt like a 10-minute recap of everything that had happened in the story to that point. I swear it was like an out of body experience, like I was just floating above myself listening to myself go on and on and on and on. I think this is my first memory of my fear of public speaking, which I had pretty bad till my first day of teaching. It's hard to believe I talk to groups of people every day when I used to be so afraid of it. Anyway, enough rambling for now.
