IMWAYR and Reviews

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? #IMWAYR is a weekly blog hop co-hosted by Unleashing Readers and Teach Mentor Texts which focuses on sharing books marketed for children and young adults. It offers opportunities to share and recommend books with each other. Make sure to visit these blogs (and those linked in their posts) to find new books and new friends.

(The original IMWAYR, with an adult literature focus, was started by Sheila at Book Journeys and is now hosted by Kathryn at The Book Date.)

You can view all of my September reads here, but below is a list of the books I read this past week and my thoughts. Comment below if you’ve read some of these or want to know more.

The Girl in WhiteThe Girl in White by Lindsay Currie
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Another fantastic spooky novel from Lindsay Currie! Thank you Sourcebooks and Lindsay for sharing a copy to read and review. Currie has quickly become a crowd favorite for spooky stories and it is really exciting to see more books by her hitting the shelves! I’ll admit…this one was quite creepy! I loved the ghost story, the history, the mystery, and the unlikely friendships.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a MUST READ! I devoured this book and found myself seeing so much of our current world as I was reading. I really loved how the kids were strong activists in this book because it can give the reader such a sense of power. Kids have power and can change the world and I like reading books that show kids their power. Thank you Scholastic for this wonderful read.

Parable of the Sower (Earthseed, #1)Parable of the Sower by Octavia E. Butler
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A great dystopian read! I listened to the audiobook and found it very engaging and entertaining. Butler is a classic in dystopian stories and I am sad to say, I am just finding her stories. But, I am glad I have found them and look forward to reading more.

    No, I haven’t read any of them, but am waiting for Attack of the Black Rectangles from the library. Thanks for sharing what you have read! I didn’t know about the new Lindsay Currie book!

    Loved, loved, loved The Attack of the Black Rectangles. I am in the minority when it comes to Lessons in Chemistry. I blame it on the publisher. The synopsis of the book didn’t match with what it actually was so I think I was expecting something a little different.
