It’s my week off! I’ll be back next Monday! To see what I’ve been reading, check out my read bookshelf on Goodreads.
I am embarrassed to say that it took me this long to read Gender Queer by Maia Kobabe. I was number 127th on the wait list at the library, and I decided to wait patiently. It was well worth the wait. This is a powerful book, and I am better for having read it.
I really enjoyed Garvey’s Choice: The Graphic Novel by Nikki Grimes, Illustrated by Theodore Taylor III. I really connected with this book and felt like many of Garvey’s interests and thoughts reflected my own. I can’t wait for my son to read this one.
- Rereading: Hey, Kiddo by Jarrett J. Krosoczka (I am teaching it as part of a week that my students and I are discussing addiction.)
- Reading: The Last Cuentista by Donna Barba Higuera
- Listening: Ace of Spades by Faridah Àbíké-Íyímídé
Thursday: Gender Queer by Maia Kobabe
