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!

#pop19 1 mil+ reviews on GR

CarolynM I was wondering what to choose for the cover change prompt. I might give this one a go too🙂 4d
Blh87 Such a good series! The Heroes of Olympus series that followed this series was also SO good! 4d
LibrarianRyan Yeahhhh. @CarolynM there are a bunch of suggestion on my time line under #coverchangemidseries (I think ) 4d

LibrarianRyan @CarolynM I lied. There are a few under that. I‘ll look up the tag I used for all the others tomorrow morning. 4d
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. 4d
4thhouseontheleft @veritysalter 😂😂 YesX I love the sound! We actually have a gas fireplace in this room, but sometimes I want the sound without the heat. 🔥 4d
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 4d

#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!!!! 1w
4thhouseontheleft @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 1w
Cinfhen That book by Ocean Vuong is STUNNING (edited) 1w
4thhouseontheleft @Cinfhen I remember your review! It stuck out, and everyone on Litsy seems to love it. #blameLitsy 1w

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 👍 😂 😁 😂 4w

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

This was my daughter‘s favorite book in 3rd grade, although as a 6th grader, I think she relates better now to the changing friendships and finding your identity themes in this excellent story. I really loved this, and would love to see a sequel!

I‘ve been at an impasse all day trying to decide which book from my #tbrpile to pick up next. So I left it up to chance with a random draw...High Holiday Porn it is! @AmyG I‘ll be sending it on to you afterwards!

Roller Girl was my 2nd draw, so that will be next. 😃

My remaining #bbrc #mgme books will just have to wait a little bit longer. 😃

AmyG Ha! Thank you. 😘 2mo

Grace Lin wrote the book she wished she had as a kid, but it is a lovely treat for all kids! It would be a great option as a read aloud for early elementary. It‘s a sweet story of friendship, family traditions, and growing up Asian American in a predominately white community.

#bbrc #middlegrade #mgme #under150pages

LibrarianRyan such a good book. 2mo
Zoes_Human Grace Lin is one of my absolute favorite kid's authors. 2mo
4thhouseontheleft @LibrarianRyan It is! @Zoes_Human this is the 2nd book of hers that I have read and I really liked them both! 2mo

#audiowalk pit stop for a matcha latte and a quick read while I wait for the nearby Target to fulfill my pickup order. 😃 I love urban greenways that go by major shopping areas so I can multi-task while I exercise!

Mehso-so

I never read Heidi as a child, so I don‘t have any sentimental strings attached. I don‘t feel this one has aged as well as other children‘s books from the mid to late 1800‘s, like Little Women. It was also quite preachy, esp the 2nd half. It is a sweet story.

It did fill a lot of prompts!

LibrarianRyan I agree. 2mo
Cinfhen I‘m not sure if I could make it through a preachy tome written in the late 1800s 😜 sounds like torture 2mo
4thhouseontheleft @Cinfhen It wasn‘t too heavy-handed, and it was all in the 2nd half, so I was already committed by the time I reached it. I probably would have bailed if Heidi didn‘t ✔️ so many reading challenge prompts! And it‘s a quick read. 2mo
4thhouseontheleft @Cinfhen It does make the very short list of books I won‘t recommend to Maya. 😂 2mo
BarbaraTheBibliophage Who picked these prompts, anyway! 🤪👊🏻♥️ 2mo
