I listened to this audiobook right after Wonder. Though nice stories, they are not as moving as Wonder.
A little disappointing that the same books keep going on sale, but I found 4 nonetheless! Did you grab any at the 2 for 1 sale?
The first of many cups of coffee this weekend ☕️ I had every intention of starting the first book for #24in48 last night but fell right asleep, so let‘s try this again. I‘m going with a quick read and one I‘ve been looking forward to!
My kid finds the best reading spots. 😍😍😍
Excuse the crappy fast food (we were in a hurry! 😒) and notice the Kindle. 😊💕👍 She's choosing to #readandeat whenever possible these days, and has started carrying a purse expressly to be able to bring her Kindle or a book wherever we go. #proudmama #raisingreaders
Another buddy read with my little man. We LOVED Wonder, and this was a nice (although not as great) read as well. I really needed to read Julian‘s story to understand his character. I needed to know he felt remorse in the end. Not that we can forgive all of his actions, but it helped shed some light on his situation. Loved the continued messages of choosing kindness above all else. #Book8of2018
Firstly, I STILL hate Julian 😡 always #choosekind . It was good to understand Julian more, but now I just understand more how selfish he is, when he decides to do good it is only for his own self image. The other two stories about Christopher and Charlotte , I felt were unnecessary. I didn't really learn anything profound from them or gain any greater insight. Julian could have been rolled into Wonder.
The three stories are okay. Not as good as Wonder, which may be why it felt a little meh to me. Julian had by far the best chapter, only because Grandmère saved his story. Christopher has the least interesting, maybe because he didn‘t play an active role in Wonder. I almost stopped reading after Julian but decided to continue. #readwomen
Thursday morning commute. Have a great day, fellow Littens!
Started this #middlegrade book last night. So far it does not disappoint.
If you loved the book Wonder, then you will love the realistic fiction stories of 3 of the other characters in the book. You get to know the true Julian, the bully, Charlotte, Auggie's school friend, and Christopher, Auggie's oldest best friend. These stories take place before Auggie attended Beecher Prep and during and gives great insight on these 3 characters. Here's a link to R.J Palacios site http://rjpalacio.com #ucflae3414sp17
This contains three short stories that were written after Wonder. The first is the Julian chapter that was also published by itself. The writer develops each section with great detail, maybe a little too much detail in spots. However, all of the short stories provide great life lessons.
My little guys and I listened to this audio book and finished last night. We loved WONDER and they were anxious to read this collection of connected stories. I wasn't much of a fan. I think Palacio is a good writer, but this one felt like she was trying to keep riding the success from her novel. My boys liked it though.
This book I thought was a waste of money. I've read Wonder before this and thought this was a different new story. So I bought it and it turned out to be basically the same story In different point of views. Like one chapter was about summer, three more about August. It was just repeating Wonder in a different way. It's not that I didn't like it, it was just a waste of money if you've already read the first book (Wonder)
Great bonus Wonder stories that expand on the themes of bullying and kindness in the original. Full review: http://mrskaoreads.com/book/auggie-me-three-wonder-stories/
