The Snow Child | Eowyn Ivey
post image

I‘ve been meaning to read this forever but wanted to do it when it was seasonably appropriate. Now that we‘ve had a heavy snowfall where I live in Minnesota, it‘s time!

I‘m excited to participate in the #WinterReadathon as it‘s been awhile since I‘ve made time to read the way I love. December is that time for me.

Goals include:

🎄Reading 8 books
🎄Posting on Litsy regularly

MrsMalaprop Oh me too. This was a very early #blameitonlitsy #stackadd for me & I still haven‘t gotten to it. Given that I live in Perth, Western Australia ☀️, it‘ll never be a seasonally appropriate time for me to get to it 😆. Hope it‘s good 🤞. 2d
MadelineMcCrae We‘ve been having unusually light snow fall where I‘m at in MN. This book has been on my tbr for a while! 2d
annahenke @MrsMalaprop oh, I get that!! I recommend the audio if you ever decide to read it - I‘m really enjoying the narrator! 2d

Spring in Alaska is a very active season and Kate Shugak is right in the middle of ALL the activity. If it can happen, it happens to her. She also seems to be channeling her lately departed Emaa. Also, bears and bears and bears, oh my! Feuds, wayward spouses, shooting, falling skies (sort of), murder, this book has it all. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

So I‘m still in Iowa on vacation until the 4th so I don‘t have my full #WinterReadathon TBR but here are a couple of the holiday reads I‘m hoping to get to that I did bring with me plus the book I‘m reading that I‘ll finish tomorrow!

Andrew65 They look fun reads. 3d
Aims42 Nice looking reads there!! Hope you‘re enjoying your time in Iowa. I was just in Cedar Falls this past weekend visiting my family ♥️ 3d
DieAReader 📚🤓Looks good! 3d
PathfinderNicole @Aims42 oh nice! My husband is from Waterloo so we were actually just around Cedar Falls a couple days last week before coming to SW Iowa for my side of the family! 3d
Aims42 @PathfinderNicole That‘s fun!! We maybe crossed paths and didn‘t even know it 😆 I didn‘t make it to the Waterloo Public Library this visit, but highly recommend their used book “store” 😉 3d

Kate Shugak is fierce! Her emaa is fiercer. Who will win in their struggle of wills? And does Kate have a choice? Betrayal, death, murder, deception, lies, tribal lands, tribal politics, and Kate is the one to unravel it all. Her life will never be the same. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Another stellar Kate Shugak mystery. Kate finds a body in the forest while picking mushrooms, a bumper crop after a forest fire. How did the person end up out in the middle of nowhere, who are they, and how did they die? Does it have anything to do with the members of the local fundamentalist church? When Kate finds the answers, they‘re more disturbing than she was prepared for. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Bo at Ballard Creek | Kirkpatrick Hill

This novel is about a young girl named Bo who is born in Alaska and is abandoned by her mother as a baby. She is then taken to an orphanage where she is adopted by two male gold miners where she grows up learning two languages, English and Eskimo. This story could be read by 4th-grade students but would also be a great read-aloud for any age group as it even has pictures included throughout. Scott O'Dell Award winner.

Bo at Ballard Creek | Kirkpatrick Hill

Bo at Ballard Creek by Kirkpatrick Hill is about Bo, an Alaskan orphan who was adopted and raised by two locals that teach him the Alaskan way.

This is a great read-aloud for younger readers to introduce the idea of the gold mine and historical fiction!

Would love to use this in my classroom someday!
