I grabbed this off the library shelf partly because of the cover, partly because of its shape (a square!) and partly because of the blurb from Angie Sage and other middle grade authors. It was excellently written! Great characters, very interesting worldbuilding (pseudo-Puritan, but somehow worse), cool magical fantasy stuff that didn’t feel similar to
I am SO FAR BEHIND ON REVIEWS but this week is Spring Break for my grad school! So I have a little time to waste and I will waste it by writing very short reviews for books I read this month. Here’s what I read from February 28th to March 5th! Circuit Theory by Kirby
Happy Sunday, everyone! I had a very good week of reading. First up, I read a freebie that’s been on my TBR since October 2015. Learning to Feel by N.R.

I’ve finished reorganizing my work library, which is great! I’m exhausted, but very excited for the students to finally get in there and mess around with the books. My new library computer also showed up on Friday which means I can finally add in the new students, update records, finish adding in new books, etc.
A Bad Case of Stripes – David Shannon A classic picture book about a girl who turns all stripey because she’s so worried about what other people think of her! It has heavy shades of Dr. Seuss’ Daisy-Head Maisie, only the moral is not JUST to accept others who’re different from you but ALSO to
