I can't believe it is Monday again! Time is speeding by so fast. I'm looking at my plans that I had at the beginning of summer and wondering how I can fit most of it in during this last week! But I did get to read some in this past week!
A nonfiction book that I read was the reprint of DK Eyewitness Books: Titanic by Simon Adams. Click here for a summary on Goodreads. The book is just an updated version of the previous one. The cover looks more appealing. I've always been fascinated by the sinking of the Titantic as are my students. This will be a great addition to my library since my other copy has been well loved and is on it's last legs.
While I was at a bookstore last week, I had the opportunity to read some different picture books. One that I really liked was Peanut Butter and Cupcake by Terry Border. Click here for a summary on Goodreads. This book was a good book about finding a friend. The illustrations were unique and interesting. Though as others mentioned in their reviewed on Goodreads, I was a bit confused by the title. I won't spoil the book by revealing why I was confused, but you should understand after you read the book.
I think my favorite read of the week was Sisters by Raina Telgemeier. Click here for a summary on Goodreads. This book is a squeal to Smile. It was great to revisit the family. In fact, I think that I liked Sisters even more than I did Smile! I loved that the focus of the book was on family and how family dynamics can change over time. Smile has been a HUGE hit in my library and I know that Sisters will be as well! I was able to read this book thanks to NetGalley!
