April Recap (with bitty blurbs)

Stuff I read in April:

Magic's Child by Justine Larbalestier: The third in this series where Reason learns about her magical powers and things get crazier and weirder from there!

Devilish by Maureen Johnson: The new girl in school isn't quite who she appears to be.

Looking For Alaska by John Green: Lots of school boy angst and a prank gone wrong.

Just Listen by Sarah Dessen: Our heroine makes friends with an unlikely hero and learns to cope with some pretty hard things.

Stardust by Neil Gaiman: A wonderful fantasy full of all that wonderful fantasies should have!

Maximum Ride: The Final Warning by James Patterson: Max takes her flock on yet another crazy adventure.

Pants On Fire by Meg Cabot: Learning to be true to oneself.

Nicola and the Viscount by Meg Cabot: Who you think you love sometimes doesn't turn out to be Mr. Right.

Quentins by Maeve Binchy: Lots of individual stories about the restaurant Quentins, wrapped around the main story about Ella and her struggles.

So, okay, I only read ONE "big people" book this whole month! My goal for May? Read more non-YA books!

Favorites of the month: Just Listen and Stardust

War and Peace update: Hmmmm.... where is that book anyway?

  1. It's difficult, when you are working in the environment with either YA or children's lit. I know, I am a media specialist for a K-5 elementary school. I was at middle 6-8 for many years and some of the YA is really good.
