BHE (49): Love for Mo Willems, Lemony Snicket, David Levithan, and More


I haven’t really been buying books lately, especially since I’m trying to empty my shelves in preparation for my big move to South Carolina sometime this year. Here are a few books I managed to acquire from Book Off and Barnes & Noble over the past month. Which ones have you read? Heard of? Would love to hear your thoughts on these!


Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed by Mo Willems
Exclamation Point by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Tom Lichtenheld


Bad Apple by Edward Hemingway
Olivia… and the Missing Toy by Ian Falconer


Cinderella Skeleton by Robert D. San Souci and David Catrow
Poetry for Young People: Lewis Carroll as edited by Edward Mendelson
The Pout-Pout Fish by Deborah Diesen


The Bad Beginning (Book 1 of A Series of Unfortunate Events) by Lemony Snicket
Fairest of All: A Tale of the Wicked Queen by Serena Valentino and the Disney Book Group


Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
The Family Fang by Kevin Wilson
The Lover’s Dictionary by David Levithan

Fats is the Assistant Manager for Circulation Services at the Wayne County Public Library in Wooster, Ohio. She considers herself a reader of all sorts, although she needs to work on her non-fiction reading. Fats likes a good mystery but is not too fond of thrillers. She takes book hoarding seriously and enjoys collecting bookmarks and tote bags. When she is not reading, Fats likes to shop pet apparel for her cat Penny (who absolutely loathes it).

  1. I love “Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed”. Willems has such a gift for thinking of the extraordinary! Eleanor and Park is on my list, but still haven’t read it. Lots of good ones here, Fats. Now you have more to pack!


  2. And at this rate, you still are not buying books, huh? That’s quite a haul you got there! You’ve read the entire series of unfortunate events, right? I hope to have my own copy of The Lover’s Dictionary myself. 🙂
