My 40 Book Challenge AUGUST 2017- MAY 2018 Over the…
Here are the books I read in May. It was a very busy month, being the end of the school year, but I did get some good books in!
Wolf Hollow by Lauren Wolk
This was a wonderful book that teaches a powerful lesson on judging people and bullying. I love a book that teaches its readers to choose kindness and rising above those who have wronged you. My review is here and you can visit the Amazon page here.
The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Kate DiCamillo
I read this book right after the school year ended and I am so glad it was one of the first books to kick off my summer reading. This was a great story of love and perseverance. It says it is a children’s book, but do not let that bring down it’s value. I cannot wait to read this to my daughter. The illustrations are pretty cute too. You can get it on Amazon here.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by Jk Rowling
I have been wanting to read this book since the movie came out. I wasn’t sure if I would like a screen play, but after reading The Cursed Child (and enjoying it), I knew I needed to give it a try. I did enjoy this book and was able to follow along quite easily. I definitely recommend.
I am really awful at sticking with a goal of books to read. So, I’ll do my best, but no promises. I tend to change my mind.
The False Prince
I am currently reading this book, so I know I will be able to finish it this month. I chose this book because I have read another book written by Jennifer Nielsen, A Night Divided, and I loved it. So far, I am loving it!
The Graveyard Book
I have heard good things about Neil Gaiman, so I felt I needed to read one of his books. This will be the first.
