Books Read, Week of 6/9/14
~ Three books about Jackie. I really enjoyed the section about her in Dreaming in French, so was inspired to find more. The biography for young people was a good place to start -- better than I thought it would be -- and One Special Summer was such a surprise and treat to find.
~ I am starting a Judy Blume project; I'd like to read all of her work, in the order she wrote it. Kids helped me get started by listening to her two books for youngest kids on audio.
~ Enjoyed the next Commissario Brunetti mystery by Donna Leon; I'm reading them in order.
~ Finished Jerry Spinelli's Hokey Pokey; impressed with his wordplay and want to finally read Maniac Magee.
~ So impressed with Breathing Room, one of this year's Maud Hart Lovelace Award nominees. Beautiful book.
