Review — Caraval by Stephanie Garber

I have been seeing the Caraval cover on Twitter forever, and seeing people rave about the book as well. It always sounded interesting, but I hadn’t ever picked it up. As luck would have it, my mother-in-law brought it home on winter break and let me borrow it when she was finished with it. I’m so glad she did! Other than thinking it sounded good, the author is part of the line up for North Texas Teen Book Festival, and to be quite honest I’ve hardly read any of the 76(?) authors that are going to be there, so I thought I should read a few, although my experience is that even if you haven’t read their books, you can still appreciate what is being said in the panels.

Review — The Speaker by Traci Chee

I was on one of the campuses I often substitute teach on, and I had a class in the library when I looked over and the librarian had a nice stack of just-out-of-the-box books. In beautiful purple and gold, there was The Speaker, Book Two of Sea of Ink and Gold. I could have died. When I told her I had read and loved The Reader and couldn’t wait to read The Speaker, she let me borrow it! I  am so very grateful to her! I read The Reader almost exactly one year ago, and I’m posting this review a year later on the dot, which is pretty cool timing. Here’s my Review.
