Books read since January – there are some good ones!

CAPTAIN CLASS by Sam Walker: Want to be a better captain, leader, manager, or family member? This is how. LOVED it. Underlined nearly the entire book.

An American Sunrise by Joy Harjo: Gorgeous poetry inspired by Harjo’s return to her family’s Native lands.

OLIVE AGAIN by Elizabeth Strout: Cantankerous Olive is back in all her glory. Such a treat.

AT THE PULPIT: 185 YEARS OF DISCOURSES BY LATTER-DAY SAINT WOMEN by Jennifer Reeder and Katie Holbrook: Likely the most influential and personally empowering book I’ve read of late. Women are simply incredible.

ALL THAT’S BRIGHT AND GONE by Eliza Nellums: “I know my brother is dead. But sometimes Mama gets confused.” Told from a 6-year-old’s POV with a surprising and suspenseful twist!

FRINDLE by Andrew Clement: Why did I wait so long to read this?

THE BOY, THE MOLE, THE FOX AND THE HORSE: Oh wow, will you please read this book? It will take you 15 minutes. And you’ll be thinking about it for a long long time.

DEAR EDWARD by Ann Napolitano: What if you were the sole survivor of a plane crash? This book. I’ve been raving for weeks.

THE REMARKABLE JOURNEY OF COYOTE SUNRISE by Dan Gemeinhart: A sweet and spunky and might-make-you-cry middle grade debut. Loved it.

All the Tomie Books: THE GIFT OF THE POINSETTIA, STREGA NONA, THE BABY SISTER, ART LESSONS…they’re all so good. Tomie passed away last week. Kitlit, adults, and New Hampshire, esp (I’m biased) mourns. The Delight and Sadness of Tomie dePaola. What an artist.

You know the drill – what are you reading and recommending???

    Currently reading The Most Fun We Ever Had by Claire Lombardo – recommended by Dana at Kiss My List. A complicated, beautifully written novel about family. Covers all the joys and challenges of marriage, parenthood, loss, dysfunction. Kind of like This Is Us. A fair amount of swearing, but it’s good.
