Monthly Round-Up: August 2016

So, I’m sitting down, here at the end of August, and I’m thinking to myself: what have I gotten myself into? See, starting on Tuesday, I’ve got two months of nearly non-stop author events, and school visits, not to mention a conference and a literacy festival. I’m thinking that we’ll see just how much reading gets done… it’s also a good thing I’ve blogged ahead a bit for September. But if I suddenly disappear, you’ll know why. The author event gods ate me.

My favorite was one for the on-line book group:


The Piper’s Son

I’d never read Marchetta’s realistic fiction before. I was missing out, people. I need to read her others now. SO good.

As for the rest:


The Girl Who Drank the Moon
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child
Monsters of Men

Middle Grade
