Isaiah Dunn Is My Hero | Kelly J. Baptist

Powerful middle grade. This was a buddy read with my 6th grader. Themes of bereavement, alcohol abuse, homelessness, bullying, and financial insecurity are all heavy topics but portrayed in a way that didn't sugarcoat any of it and will leave young readers to feel "seen" and "understood" but characters that may have similar circumstances to themselves.

#ReadYourKindle The numbers have been drawn. Three of these would start a new series and the tagged is the 3rd in a series so will start with that. I have about half the books from the #LitsyTOB list to read this month so may only get to one or two of these.


monkeygirlsmama Enjoy!!! I'm waiting for book 4 to come in at the library, but they are sloooooooow. 2w
CBee I loved Before the Coffee Gets Cold but haven‘t read any of the others yet! 2w

(2024) Reread in anticipation of the second book coming out in early March. I have recommended this book endlessly the last few years and for good reason.

(2018) First read as ARC. Screams to the whole world to drop everything and read this book. Awards received throughout the following year.

Go as a River: A novel | Shelley Read

I loved this book! It drew me in from the beginning, and kept me interested until the end. This author has an amazing ability to describe situations and scenery. I googled pictures of some of the mountain ranges in the story, and they were just as I envisioned them from the authors words. The women in this story were so strong and resilient. I admired the two main characters very much. I highly recommend this book. I am so hungry for a peach now!!

I‘m doing a book bracket for 2024. So far this is in the lead for January. But I‘m about to read an Amy Harmon book. And she‘s always a contender!

Ugh…so beautifully written. The depth of the main character, Victoria, made me feel like I truly knew her. Like I felt what she was feeling.

My book club chose this one for January and I‘m glad they did. I haven‘t stopped thinking about it since I finished.

After 17 wonderful years we had to say goodbye to our sweet girl, Maya. My daughter was 2 y.o when we brought Maya home from the shelter. She claimed Maya as hers and they were inseparable until she started college. Even then, I had to send daily pics to her. Small blessing was that my daughter is still on break so she was with her at the end. 💖🐶🪽

TheBookHippie Oh I am truly sorry. Sending so much light. 1mo

Roary47 I‘m so sorry for your loss. That is such a hard thing to do. 😢 Big hugs 🫂 We have planted trees for our dogs that went over the rainbow bridge. The physical activity helped and the shade of the tree is a wonderful reading spot or reflection point when you miss your fur baby the most. Not sure if that helps, but thought I‘d share if it can. 💛 (edited) 1mo
