I’ve begun to do my long IMWAYR updates every two weeks, so I will do an update next week. But as always, to see what books I’ve been reading, check out my 2022 Goodreads Challenge page or my read bookshelf on Goodreads.
A student lent me a copy of Dare to Disappoint: Growing Up in Turkey by Özge Samanci. The mixed media within this book is absolutely captivating. I was really impressed with it and plan to use it with my classes to examine the ways in which narratives are told graphically and nontraditionally. It is a phenomenal text.
I’ve read the prose version of Juliet Takes a Breath by Gabby Rivera, so I was really excited to read the graphic novel version with Celia Moscote. I was not disappointed. Juliet’s story is beautifully captured in this graphic version. For me, this book is almost a love letter to readers—to be proud of themselves and believe in themselves. I love this story so much and will read it again and again.
I am reading All My Rage by Sabaa Tahir. I am captivated. This one has won a lot of stars, and I can already see what the buzz is about!
Tuesday: Lizzy and the Cloud by The Fan Brothers
Sunday: Author Guest Post by Chari Smith, Author of The Piano
