I just noticed I reached 400 book reviews! I'm kidding actually, I've been watching my numbers for quite some time and have kept meticulous track ^_~ Anywhoo, just a self-congratulatory post for 400 reviews in roughly four and a half years; my brain-child (this blog) is still alive and kicking!
Thanks for reading, commenting, and being awesome blog followers in general :)
Artwork to the left is an illustration from The Real Boy by Anne Ursu, isn't it pretty?
When I started teaching, I made it a priority to not only have a relevant classroom library full of books my students actually would want to read, but also that I wouldn't recommend a book to my students that I had not read myself.
Years later, I am swimming in a personal collection of hundreds of books for both children and teens; every single one I have read and (usually) end up recommending to my students.
