I am off this week! See you next week for my update! To learn more about the books I’m reading, check out my read bookshelf on Goodreads.


This week, I finished Invisible by Christina Diaz Gonzalez and Gabriela Epstein. I sat down and read it in one sitting. It’s beautifully written and illustrated and does an amazing job making the characters feel very real.



There was a lot going on this week for me, so I am still continuing the books below!

Reading: Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow by Gabrielle Zevin

Listening to: Demon Copperhead by Barbara Kingsolver

Reading with my kids: The Bad Beginning by Lemony Snicket


Tuesday: Discussion Guide for Merci Suárez Plays it Cool by Merci Suarez

Sunday: Author Guest Post: “Big Ideas: Ways of Making Abstract Concepts More Tangible for Students” by Laura Wippell, Author of Feeling Hopeful

  1. I knew that my daughter was serious about her now husband when they MERGED THEIR LEMONY SNICKET COLLECTIONS. If you don’t have a duplicate of a favorite book, then I guess you have to stay together forever. I loved Zevin’s Elsewhere but Tomorrow was too… grown up for me? Worth taking a look at definitely. Made me wish I hadn’t gotten rid of my copy of Seth’s Golden Gate.

  2. I have both the Zevin & the Kingsolver books & still need to read them. Someday! I love Ruzzier’s books, will look forward to the post about them. Have a good week this week, Ricki!

  3. I read Invisible recently and really liked it too, Ricki—I’m glad you got to try it! And I’ve heard great things about Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow as well—I have a family member who really liked it. Thanks so much for the wonderful post!

  4. I really enjoyed Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow. Even though I am not a gamer I enjoyed reading about some of the old school games like Oregon Trail. Demon Copperhead is amazing. Kellee, hope to see you at ALA if you’ll be there this year.
