Books -- reading and writing.
Home, cooking, the weather.
And whatever connections I can make between these chapters of my life.

It's Monday again

And what are YOU reading?
I hope you've taken a big bite out of your TBR file, along with that turkey sandwich.

This is my stack. I'll never get through it! It's toppling over!

But over the Thanksgiving weekend, I finished at least two of them, and they were so good.

1. Be Light Like a Bird, by Monika Schroder. Lovely story for young readers who like their action with heart. I read this as an ARC when it first came out but now our library had a copy sitting on the new book shelf and I just had to check it out. The words seem the same but it was delightful to savor them this time around. (True confessions- I don't love reading books as rich as this one on my Kindle. I'm sure I missed something. )

2. Liberty by Kirby Larson.

I'm only peeking into this, gently, because I bought it as a gift and am trying to keep it gift-like (is that a word?). 
I loved the other two in this series and so far, this one may be the best yet! World War II. New Orleans. That dog!

I'm also reading a few ARCs, courtesy of the publishers and NetGalley, which you may have noticed in my tottering To Be Read stack. I'll save those to share when I have more time to think about them. 

Happy Reading, and I hope you all had a restful, thankful-for-your-blessings weekend.

I've heard good things about Be Light Like A Bird, and need to find and read it! Thanks for sharing Kirby Larson's newest book. I find all her books to be lovely stories! Hope your holiday was a good one too!

I'm reading Clayton Stone Facing Off. It's so smart and funny. I do like a funny book. Enjoy your Monday reading.

I loved Dash, so I will definitely be checking out Liberty too!

Liberty and are on my list as well as "Being Friends with Billy Wong." Currently reading Sophie Quire (Jonathan Auxier) which is a MUST MG read. It's excellent. Next up is "Wish" by Barbara O'Connor. My stack would topple over too if I was ever in one place with them all!

Both of those books are awesome! I read them as ARCs for my BookRelays group and bought copies of them for my classroom right away! Have a great week working through your reading pile!

I started Be Light Like a Bird, but I had just read a book with a tough parent death, so I couldn't make it through emotionally. I plan on picking it up again this week though as I know I'll love it when I finish it.

Thank you as always for linking up; love seeing what you are reading!
Happy reading this week :)
