A New Day Dawns by Terry Lister is a travelogue about another of his trips through several countries in Africa.
#6DegreesofSeparation is hosted by Kate at booksaremyfavouriteandbest. The gist is that everyone starts with the same book, then finds another book that relates to it somehow, then one that relates to the second, until you’ve got a chain of six additional books. It’s a twist on the theory that every person on earth can somehow be connected to any other person in six or fewer steps, and provides an opportunity to talk about random books we love (or don’t).
The book review I'm sharing today is over a children's book I picked for the "series" section of the children's literature class I am currently taking. It's a contemporary story from the publisher of the largely historical AmericanGirl books. If you keep up with children's literature in the USA, this character was the 2018 "Girl of the Year." She's friendly, artsy, and knows a lot about space and moon rocks - this introductory book is a fun summer story perfect for just about any chapter book reader.
It has become apparent that my TBR (to be read) list has gotten nearly out of hand. Therefore, I have decided to do a post featuring ten books from it approximately every other week. As I go through the list, I will evaluate each book and decide whether or not it still belongs. Who knows, perhaps as my list (hopefully) shrinks, you will find a few books to add to your own!

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme currently hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words. The three W’s stand for the following questions: What are you currently reading? What did you recently finish reading? What do you think you’ll read next? To participate, make a post or comment answering the three questions, link up to the host (Sam)’s post, and check out what others are reading and talking about! I typically participate once a month, approximately in the middle of the month, as a halfway check-in on my monthly reading goals.
Welcome to the October linkup for Spell the Month in Books! Are you up to the challenge? We're finally in the "-ber" months, which I find to be particularly difficult to complete without repeating books. Read on to see how this month goes! The goal is to spell the name of the current month by... Continue Reading →
How far would you go to learn your fate and be able to ask life's biggest questions? For Minli, the young protagonist in today's book, the answer is very far! Where the Mountain Meets the Moon is a juvenile fantasy story featuring elements from Chinese folklore. It was also the 2010 Newbery Medal Winner. This... Continue Reading →
It's been a while since I last participated in an Unraveled Wednesday linkup with actual knitting to discuss! The last time I joined the linkup was in August to talk about the macramé bracelets I made over the summer. The last time I shared a knitting project with this linkup was in February! But, when...
