Yeah.... it's been a while. Totally my bad. I got in a slump (though I have been reading) and I haven't been posting to my blog hardly at all.
Since my last It's Monday post was over a month ago, I am certainly NOT going to try to cover everything I have read in the past six weeks. I love you all too much to do that to you. I'll just snag a few of my favorites and call it a week.
This non fiction picture book biography is delightful. It comes out in October, so I will do a full review closer to publication. Put it on your list... you want it.

I identified with the main character in this story SO strongly. I listened to Fangirl, and I enjoyed every moment of it. Perfect for the writers and fangirls (and fanboys) in your life.
Looking for some truly creepy stories? This anthology of short stories really fits the bill. Honestly, some did creep me out, so they aren't for your faint-of-heart middle graders. But those kids who love a little chill up their spine? Yeah, hand this right over. Some real favorites here, including an adaptation of the Twelve Dancing Princesses that was hugely feminist and one called Quicksilver and the Stranger (by Legrand) that was an excellent example of a circular structure.
