Camille at Book Moot tagged me with a book meme: What books are you reading?
I just began reading an ARC of Grace Lin’s second novel THE YEAR OF THE RAT, which is the sequel to her wonderful first novel for middle readers THE YEAR OF THE DOG.
I picked up a batch of picture books the other day that I just read this morning.
WITH YOU ALWAYS, LITTLE MONDAY, which was written and illustrated by Genevieve Cote; WHAT A TREASURE!, by Jane and Will Hillenbrand; I’D REALLY LIKE TO EAT A CHILD, which was written by Sylviane Donnio and illustrated by Dorothee de Montfreid; MAMA’S SARIS, which was written by Pooja Makhijani and illustrated by Elena Gomez; and THAT RABBIT BELONGS TO EMILY BROWN, which was written by Cression Cowell and illustrated by Neal Layton.
CHILDREN”S POETRY BOOKS
I am reading HEY, YOU! POEMS TO SKYSCRAPERS, MOSQUITOES, AND OTHER FUN THINGS—with poems selected by Paul B. Janeczko and illustrations by Robert Rayevsky.
My husband recently brought home two books for me that I have wanted to read: THE WILD TREES: A STORY OF PASSION AND DARING by Richard Preston and BLACKWATER: THE RISE OF THE WORLD’S MOST POWERFUL MERCENARY ARMY. I can't decide which one to read first.
Another nonfiction book I really want to read is THE RIVER WHERE AMERICA BEGAN: A JOURNEY ALONG THE JAMES by Bob Deans.
I tag Grace Lin of Pacyforest and Blue Rose Girls, Robin of A Fondness for Reading, Vivian of HipWriterMama, Kelly of Big A, little a, and Mary Lee and Franki of A Year of Reading.
(I would have tagged Tricia at The Miss Rumphius Effect--but she's too busy getting ready for her big adventure!)
