[BHE 154] More Awesome Books from Pansing and Library Love

BHE

Myra here.

It is my favourite day of the week once again as I get to share books that hunted, haunted, and tracked me down until my poor self has no other recourse but to give in and find a space for them in my bookshelves. This week, I am sharing a few of the books that Pansing Books sent me for review and my library finds.

Earl Dizon of The Chronicles of a Children’s Book Writer has just recomended The Honest Truth by Dan Gemeinhart for our current reading theme, and naturally I hunted the title down from our library. And since I am on a Tamaki binge: This One Summer by Jillian and Mariko Tamaki.

How about you, fellow book readers, what books found their way to you over the past few weeks or so?

  4. Wow, Myra, I wish you lived down the block. We could share & share so many good books. I’ve heard good things about Alex Crow (currently reading The Boy In The Black Suit), Skim, and The Red Queen. I recently purchased Echo & will get to it soon, I hope! Happy Reading!
