A Night Divided

A Night Divided

My Thoughts: I adored Nielsen’s Ascendance Trilogy (The False Prince, The Runaway King, The Shadow Throne) so, so, so much!  However, I had yet to try her historical fiction. I kept meaning to but things get lost in the TBR pile shuffle! This year I started a system at the intermediate… Read more »

What Momma Left Me

What Momma Left Me

My Thoughts: This is a reissue of Renee Watson’s debut middle grade novel. (The new packaging definitely has more YA appeal! The story will, too.) Her novel Piecing Me Together was my favorite book of 2017 (and one of my all time favorites!) so you know I was excited to go… 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 »

Sightwitch

Sightwitch

My Thoughts: I am obsessed with The Witchlands series. I’ve been a fan of Dennard’s books since Something Strange and Deadly but this series is so totally my thing! I mean, I have some very fangirly thoughts about Truthwitch and Windwitch. Sightwitch is such a cool addition to The Witchlands series. I loved the journal format… Read more »
