Click on the book covers to read more about them.

A very funny book about silliness and grammar. I will be sharing it with my 4th graders for sure!

I did not expect to like this book as much as I did. 
Marlin is a very endearing character. Great for grades 4-8. 

This is a new heart print book for me. I adore Ruby! Click here for my review.

Really loving this historical fiction novel. 

Currently Listening
Very interesting so far. 

What Are You Reading Friends?


  1. More than one are talking about Ruby, Gigi. I've put it on the list! And I Yam A Donkey looks very cute. Thanks for all you reviewed!

  2. I'll be interested to hear how you like the audiobook for Under the Egg. I read it on my computer and enjoyed it a lot (although you have to practice the whole willing suspension of disbelief big time. Not a lot in the book seems like it would actually happen!) I think it could make an excellent audiobook with the right narrator.

  3. Isn't this new Cece Bell book hilarious?! I really want to read Ruby on the Outside. I have requested it from the library. Looks fantastic.

  4. I'm glad to hear about the Ruby love since I've already bought it!

  5. The secret mission of William Tuck looks terrific. We are always looking for good historical fiction. Have you read The War that Saved My Life? We really liked that historical fiction novel too?

  6. Oh, I just ordered I Yam a Donkey and Ruby on the Outside for my library, so I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed them both.

  7. I loved Under the Egg - such an unusual book. This is the second great review I've read for Ruby, and now i know I have to get it!

  8. Thank you for your lovely review about Ruby. I enjoyed reading it. It sounds like she learned a lot. I will most certainly add it to my TBR list! I hope you have a wonderful week!

  9. Cece Bell is so much fun! I cannot wait to read her new PB. I love El Deafo and Crankee Doodle.
    Thank you for the review of Ruby--I definitely need to read this one!

    Happy reading this week! :)

  10. This is the second time I'm seeing I Yam A Donkey - looks like a lot of fun!
