Nathan Hale's Hazardous Tales: One Dead Spy
I loved this graphic novel! I am probably going to write up a full review. In the meantime, do check it out. It really brought history to life.
Babymouse is always a good read. This didn't rank up there as one of my favorites, but it was still fun.
Dear Mr. Henshaw was an enjoyable reread for me. I read it on Monday, after the excitement over the awards had died down a bit.
I kept clicking "request hold" as I watched the ALA awards. These are the books I've read so far from my hold shelf list. I also have Hand in Hand, Titantic, and Electric Ben on my "to read" pile.
I FINALLY caught up with the 5th book in the Nerdy award Middle Grade category -
One for the Murphys. Loved it!
You Are Stardust - another excellent picture book exploring deep thoughts and scientific concepts.
Pinned - for my Book Gap Challenge (sports books). I enjoyed it, but it didn't rank up there as a new favorite.

Infinity and Me on Wednesday and linked to Aly's Nonfiction book reviews at Kid Lit Frenzy.
A random teen handed me this graphic novel at the library, so of course I had to read and review it! Filled with dark British humor, and set in Victorian London - The Professor's Daughter was a quirky delight for YA and adult audiences.
