Episode 96 on Legit KidLit features middle grade author Mariama…
Last week I got caught up on some books so I can get closer to my goal of 365 books this year. Also, October ended and I have read 19 books! I will try and get a post featuring those reads soon.
Books I Finished
As you can see, I read quite a few historical fiction books and one nonfiction. My top two reads were White Rose and White Bird. White Rose was written in verse and was so heartbreaking, mostly because I knew the ending already, but also because of the hints of the ending and the rhythm of the verse. It cut me deep! White Bird also tore my heart apart. I love Wonder, but the best part of it was the Julien chapter, so you can imagine my excitement on seeing White Bird being released to further what was told in the Julien chapter.
Fountains of Silence was also really great, although a little drawn out. I love the worlds and characters that Ruta creates and always recommend her books. They are more upper middle grade to young adult and should be read by more mature readers.
