Quotable Thursday

I love when someone writes the heck out of a sentence. On Thursdays, I try to post some of my favorites.

“Charlotte’s Web was about everything important—for example, birth and death and love and the glory of everything.”

~Joanne Rocklin’s Fleabrain Loves Franny

Upcoming events

Readers! If you’re in the Cincinnati area, make sure you don’t miss Books by the Banks coming up on Saturday, Oct. 28th. It’s my favorite book festival – loads of goodies and authors and Books, Books, Books! I’ll be there again – signing books. (And buying books too!)

BBTB

And Indiana librarians – I am excited to stop by the Indiana Library Federation’s annual conference next month. I’ll be signing there Wednesday morning, Nov. 15th. Stop by and say hi!

“How do you rid the Earth of their humans? Rid the humans of their humanity.”

Wednesday: What I’m Reading

On Wednesdays I vow to inconsistently list some good books I’ve recently read.

 

 

The Hate U Give has gotten so much buzz. It made me a little wary of reading it. Sometimes my expectations are too high when this happens. But, readers, I was not disappointed with this one. Angie Thomas is a talented writer. This is an important YA novel that everyone should read, yes. It’s about a timely subject (police shooting) and the racial tension that is present today, yes. But it’s SO well-written. The voice was great; the characters were interesting and eclectic. I loved everything about this. You will too. Run out and read this soon.
