⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5 Stars. This book was poignant in a quiet, moving way. I love the diversity of the characters; it was natural and not in-your-face. The plot is intriguing as it takes place over the course of one day and you already know that the ending results in a new friendship, but you still want to read to discover how that happens.

"His face is scrunched up, like he's sniffing something offensive. He's got beady eyes and round cheeks and they're all shoved up together. Meanness always shows on people's faces. Sometimes you have to look hard for it. Sometimes it's just a part of a person's features. That's how it is with this Chet."

A great book. I love the land of Nevermoor and the themes of friendship and loyalty. This is a great series for those who love Harry Potter.

Meet Lucy. She loves on any book I happen to set down where she can reach it. I can't figure out if she loves books because I do, or because it smells like me after I've been holding it for awhile, or if this is just a weird quirk of hers.

The entire state of SD is stocking up on milk and eggs and other groceries for a huge storm rolling in tonight, but my kids' priority was getting to the library for a few days worth of reading material. We may be stuck inside under the predicted 12+ inches of snow for the next few days, but we'll be prepared!

As a Cheer Mom, the only kinds of quotes that come to mind about #cheer for #QuotsyMar19 are actual cheers 🤷

And these are my two youngest kids, my cheerleader and my football player. We also cheer on my basketball, cross country, golf, and soccer playing older boys. Sports are a way of life for us 24/7 so I've had lots of practice cheering them on!

@TK-421

Erinreadsthebooks I don't think that cheer will ever die. My daughter cheered for the first team in the fall and I was blown away that they were doing the same cheers that I did as a kid. Don't they ever change? 😩 6mo
PathfinderNicole I cheered in high school and college and we did this one too! 6mo

A book just as relevant today as it was when it was first written. It explores how Wanda is bullied for being different than the other kids. The important lesson it teaches is that Maddie, who does not join in the bullying, is still guilty for not standing up and telling the other kids to stop.

"She was never going to stand by and say nothing again."

Finally got started on our family "library." We've had books scattered in every bedroom of the house and now we have a dedicated corner of our basement family room for our books. It's like 80% books for kids, but that's mostly because I still can't quite move my stack of nightstand books two whole flights of stairs away ?

I feel that this book was written more for technophobic parents, which I don't identify as at all. I'm very pro-technology, but I do limit my children's screen time. This book has great advice for interactively teaching our children how to navigate a technological world and advocates for guiding them rather than just allowing them free rein to experience it on their own.

⭐⭐⭐⭐ I enjoyed this fun, quick read. It was a good book to listen to as I painted walls and shampooed carpets over the past few days I actually enjoyed the high school cliche characters (the pretty popular girl with great hair, the brainy shy girl, the jock with a secret, and the misunderstood bad boy) and it felt like I was in high school again when all the teen movies of the 90s were popular.

This youngest child has to sit through 4 basketball games today for his older siblings. Book 3 in the Heroes in Training series to the rescue! This is a fun introduction to Greek Mythology in simple chapter book form. It's a big hit with my 6 year old and a nice change of pace from reading about Minecraft and Roblox.

Happy Saturday!

An hour and 42 minutes into this #audiobook while at the gym tonight (1.5 speed) I think keeping this as my "gym only" book will motivate me to return to the gym again soon ? I thought it would be hard to follow in audiobook form since so much of it is emails and letters, but it's not too bad.

I've managed 4 hours and 36 minutes so far for #24b4Monday by listening to the tagged book while cleaning, organizing, running errands and eating lunch. Currently at the car wash getting the junk off my car before picking up kids at school - then my free reading time will be seriously diminished until they go to bed.
