Bite-Sized Reviews of Cybils Nominees: Kiki’s Delivery Service; Embassy of the Dead; The Total Eclipse of Nestor Lopez; Middle School Bites; and Into the Tall, Tall Grass

As my regular readers know, I’m a round one judge for the Cybils Awards in the Middle Grade Speculative Fiction category. Because of that, I’ve been reading LOTS of books lately! I’m not allowed to share any details about our process for choosing the finalists, but I am allowed (and encouraged) to review the books as I read, so I figured I’d share four of them with you today. I hope these bite-sized reviews will […]

The Would You Rather Book Tag

The Would You Rather Book Tag

I’m not sure where this version of this book tag actually originated, but I saw it over at a GREAT read. (I’ve definitely seen other versions of it as well.) I thought it was a really fun one and decided to jump in! Would you rather only read physical books for the rest of your life or only audiobooks? This is kind of hard, actually. I lean toward physical books, but this is the rest […]

Breaking the News from National Geographic: Giveaway and a Fun Quiz!

Welcome to the Breaking the News Blog Tour! This book sounded really interesting to me (and timely), so I’m eager to see what it has to say. After recently watching The Social Dilemma on Netflix and hearing that fake news spreads six times faster than actual news, I’ve realized what a huge problem this actually is. Then, of course, there are certain politicians (who will remain nameless) that like to throw out the term Fake […]

October 2020 Wrap-Up and Best of the Bunch

My Goings-On in October: Biting my nails over politics. Please, please, please let this election turn out to be a good thing and let us get back to some kind of normal! Quarantining. We spent the last two weeks indoors because my daughter was exposed to COVID through her high school swim team. She tested negative, and it was no big deal, really. Let’s face it, we haven’t been going out much lately anyway. Basement […]
