What are you reading friends?


  1. Hi Gigi, this is a fine list of picture books. I love Gene Luen Yand's work. I think I'm one of the few not a Harry Potter fan people on the planet, but I am a Lauren Mracle fan and am looking forward to reading Wishing Day!

  2. Such a fantastic list of books! As I read through your list, I kept thinking "oh, I'll comment on this one", and then I'd see another title I loved even more! I'll just say that Josh Funk has really been having a stellar year recently, such a talented and very nice guy!

  3. The Black Rabbit looks so cute, among all the others, too, Gigi. Thanks!

  4. I am waiting for my copy of Wishing Day - and your review!

  5. Looking forward to the next Coders book. I think I get it tomorrow?

  6. I can't wait to read Dear Dragon! My library doesn't have it yet, but I did place Black Rabbit on hold. Have a terrific week!
