I am so sorry, but I am going to take a couple more weeks off. I am just a bit overloaded with everything: just my normal life then never knowing how the day is going to go at school, my new UCF course, writing teaching guides, etc. My reading hasn’t been the best right now either because of everything. Thank you for understanding, and I’ll be back on Mondays soon!

To learn more about any of these books, check out my 2022 Goodreads Challenge page  or my read bookshelf on Goodreads.


Snow Angel, Sand Angel by Louis-Ann Yamanaka is such a good book. My kids have asked me to read it so many times now. I will be reviewing it in detail this Thursday!

I reread Sisters of the Neversea by Cynthia Leitich Smith for a project that I am doing. My goodness, I love this book so much. It confronts stereotypes and erasure head-on and does so unapologetically. If you haven’t read this book yet, I recommend it highly.



I am rereading Black Canary: Breaking Silence by Alexandra Monir for the second time this month to prepare for a project. It’s a fantastic story, and I recommend it.


Tuesday: Review & Giveaway: Playing with Lanterns by Wang Yage, Illustrated by Zhu Chengliang

Thursday: Snow Angel, Sand Angel by Lois Yamanaka, Illustrated by Ashley Lukashevsky

Saturday: Sofia’s Kids’ Corner: Charlie Thorne and the Last Equation by Stuart Gibbs

  1. Kellee, don’t worry about having to take a few weeks off—I hope things get less chaotic soon, but it sounds like you’re doing great with everything!

    Ricki, I made note of Snow Angel, Sand Angel, since it sounds excellent! And I’m glad Sisters of the Neversea was just as good after re-reading it. Thanks so much for the wonderful post!

  2. Kelly, I agree that you can relax and come back when you are ready.

    (And I’m not just saying that to make myself feel better about dropping off the blogging habit for two months with no excuse whatsover.)

    I appreciate all the work you two do to keep this community together!

  3. Hey Kellee, take care of yourself!
    Rickie, I’m just sad that none of my libraries have a copy of Snow Angel, Sand Angel. I enjoyed Sisters of the Neversea much more than I expected.
    Happy reading this week to both of you.
