Shadowshaper | Daniel Jos Older

Shadowshaper was amazing! When I try to weite book reviews I lose all my words or end up sounding overly formal, but this was a great #ownvoices read! I love the idea of fighting evil with art.

Slowly making progress on this book. Really enjoying it but there's a lot going on. Also, pieces of the book sometimes fall out onto Valentine, which she does not appreciate.

Valentine helped me take some pictures for you all! 😂
I own two copies of this because the smaller of the two belonged to my mother. She purchased it in a used book store in Nicaragua when she was in the Peace Corps.

Not too sure how I felt about this, honestly. I guess it was fine? It was a quick read and kept me entertained. I didn't love it, I guess.

As I was reading, I felt the book reminded me a lot of The Ghost Map by Steven Johnson, which was amazing. At the end, the author said she based her book on his. While this was a totally solid read, and a great intro to cholera for kids (which is a really weird idea), I think I wiuld have enjoyed this more if I'd read it first. Still, a really good book.

Bette I enjoyed this, have not read The Ghost Map and 👍🐘😀 6y

I constructed my usual clever cat trap this morning by sitting on the couch with a book and a quilt, but to no avail. The cat has better things to do, apparently!
This book is very good but makes me very tense. Since it is about children and the Klan, that isn't a surprise.

The Haunting of Maddy Clare | Simone St. James

The Haunting of Maddy Clare was amazing! It is a post-wwi mystery/ghost story. I don't usually go in for anything scary but I would say that this book was more spooky than scary. It has atmosphere. A perfect October read.

raelaschoenherr I love all her books! 6y
missjenniferlowe @raelaschoenherr It's the first one I've read but I really want to read the others now! 6y

For today's #octphotochallenge. I cannot even begin to express how much I love this series! It has the best portrayal of a librarian, too. I met Tom Angleberger and he made me my very origami yoda. I was devastated when I lost it.
