It’s my week off! I will catch you all next week. To learn more about any of these books, check out my 2022 Goodreads Challenge page or my read bookshelf on Goodreads.


It’s been so long that I truly can’t remember all of the books that I’ve read, but I remember these four, for sure!

Mama in Congress by Rashida Tlaib with Miranda Paul is the story of Rashida Tlaib, one of the first Muslim women elected to Congress. I love how family is centered in this book of such a trailblazing woman!

I loved Lark & Kasim Start a Revolution by Kacen Callender. Check out my review!

My son loved Layla, the Last Black Unicorn by Tiffany Haddish. This is a story about fitting in when you stand out.

I hadn’t read Heartstopper by Alice Oseman, and my coworkers were talking about it. I read it in one night and loved it. It’s a fantastic graphic novel.



I am reading Jen Ferguson’s The Summer of Bitter and Sweet. This one has received SIX starred reviews. I’m finding it to be very intense, so I have to read it in chunks. The writing is incredibly powerful.


Tuesday: A River’s Gifts: The Mighty Elwha River Reborn by Patricia Newman, Illustrations by Natasha Donovan

Thursday: Who’s That Dinosaur by Gabrielle Balkan, Illustrated by Sam Brewster

Saturday: Guest Review: All Are Welcome by Alexandra Penfold, Illustrated by Janina Edwards

Sunday: Author Guest Post: “Their Story, Our Legacy” by Emily Francis, Author of If You Only Knew: Letters from an Immigrant Teacher
