Turtles All The Way Down

Turtles All The Way Down

My Thoughts: First things first, I read this book when it first came out and I loved it. But it’s taken me forever to get around to reviewing it for two main reasons: John Green’s books and videos and Nerdfighteria mean a lot to me. Like, they had a huge… Read more »

Rickshaw Girl

Rickshaw Girl

My Thoughts: So, this book isn’t YA. It’s geared more towards intermediate readers (about 4th – 6th grade.) I don’t normally cover books that young. However, Mitali Perkins mentioned it when she was on tour for her newest YA, You Bring the Distant Near, and I knew I had to read… Read more »

My Thoughts: Oh, hey, look! Another book that came out years ago that I just finally got around to reading. I had heard such good things about it (and I really enjoyed hearing the author speak and read from it at a conference!) so I snagged the audiobook with the last of my… Read more »
