Finally made more progress on the #BBRC and read what I consider to be a real middle grade classic: the Boxcar Children. I loved this book/series as a kid so when I saw it in the Serial Reader app I knew it would be perfect! #MGME #MiddleGradeMadeEasy

LibrarianRyan I didn‘t know it was on Serial Reader. That is awesome. 3y
bibliobard @LibrarianRyan the first one is anyway — it was a pleasant surprise 3y

This was a cute read and I would definitely consider reading the rest. I love NPH so I am glad he wrote this book for me to count towards #MGME written by an actor category. #BBRC #MiddleGradeMadeEasy

LibrarianRyan 😁👍🏻❤️ 3y

An adorable story about how a dog who can make friends can be your best teacher. Everyone has a hole inside them from loss & when Opal decides to take in Winn-Dixie, she realizes that loss looks different on everyone. #BBRC #MGME @LibrarianRyan
Not to mention this is the THIRD book taken off the teetering #MountTBR!!! 👍

LibrarianRyan Ahhhhhhh. Glad you liked it. 3y
IamIamIam @LibrarianRyan I remember the movie coming out but the book hasn't really been on my radar long. My son read a blurb in class last year & I snagged my own copy at the book fair! 😁 3y

While this specific book wasn‘t on my TBR list I almost want to count it since it was a book I specifically picked up to continue towards completion of #BBRC (MG read over 250 pgs). This was a very cute book that didn‘t make me groan. I guess because it involves family, baking, and magic. I might actually pick up the rest as I enjoyed the concept and hints at future elements.

Not my cup of tea, but at least I can count it for a holiday read AND #BBRC since I haven‘t been tackling that challenge lately.

Official Wrap-up for the #MiddleGradeMadeEasy portion of #BBRC! These were all solid picks that I really enjoyed, with the exception of Heidi. I'm hoping to read the rest of the Percy Jackson series over winter break.

On to #TeenAngst...highly appropriate as we have our fair share of early teen angst in my home these days! 😂

#MGME

LibrarianRyan Yeahhhh. Congrats. 3y
alisiakae @LibrarianRyan Thanks! @Riveted_Reader_Melissa I did too! Maya and I both read it in August, it was her summer reading assignment. 3y
Bookzombie I loved Roller Girl! Also Percy Jackson! (edited) 3y

I really enjoyed this! It was a fun and entertaining read, I can see why kids love this series. I‘ll definitely be reading the others soon.

And this fulfills my last prompt for the #MGME portion of #BBRC (cover change mid-series). I‘ll be updating my google form tomorrow, on to #teenangst!

CarolynM I was wondering what to choose for the cover change prompt. I might give this one a go too🙂 3y
Blh87 Such a good series! The Heroes of Olympus series that followed this series was also SO good! 3y
LibrarianRyan Yeahhhh. @CarolynM there are a bunch of suggestion on my time line under #coverchangemidseries (I think ) 3y

LibrarianRyan @CarolynM I lied. There are a few under that. I‘ll look up the tag I used for all the others tomorrow morning. 3y
veritysalter Ah a fellow lover of “crackle TV”!! 🔥🔥🔥 I use it in my garden room that doesn‘t have a fire, the best noise to read to. 3y
alisiakae @veritysalter 😂😂 YesX I love the sound! We actually have a gas fireplace in this room, but sometimes I want the sound without the heat. 🔥 3y
veritysalter @4thhouseontheleft Best thing on YouTube, it gives off the cosy vibes, with a book, a blanket and a warm drink (dog or cat optional) - heaven. Happy reading 📖 xx 3y

#WeeklyForecast

The two on the bottom left & center are #currentreads which I hope to finish soon. On my plate for the week includes selections for #NFNov & #nonfiction2019 and my last book for #mgme #bbrc which also overlaps with a #pop19 prompt.

The Goodreads Award nominees are announced this week, so I may throw this forecast out the window then. 🤣💨

Cinfhen Ha!!! Bonus points for honesty!!!! 3y
alisiakae @Cinfhen 😁😁 I have some 2019 releases on the hold shelf at the library, just waiting till Nov 5 to see if they make the GR nominations list. Top of that list is 3y
Cinfhen That book by Ocean Vuong is STUNNING (edited) 3y
alisiakae @Cinfhen I remember your review! It stuck out, and everyone on Litsy seems to love it. #blameLitsy 3y

#bbrc #mgme #newclassic

Maleeka is a bright middle schooler who comes from an impoverished home, & is constantly teased over her dark complexion. As a result, she struggles with low self-esteem and finding her identity. It‘s complexity & depth make this a great book for a MS novel study.

Maya is currently working on an identity project to finish up this unit. We both loved the book, and it has spurred some wonderful dinner conversations.

LibrarianRyan 👍 😂 😁 😂 3y

Taking a break from Halloween and #screamathon reading to read the current novel study in Maya‘s Language Arts class.

I‘m going to count this for #bbrc #mgme #newclassic - I think it fits that prompt?

With a huge step count after handing out campaign flyers today, I‘m also not moving the rest of the night, and enjoying a salted caramel 🍎 cider! #brcr4
