I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I had been warned before I started it that it was poetry. It was wonderful! It tells about the author’s life and her start as an author. Beautifully written. I recommend this book wholeheartedly.
This book has a lot of information. The previous books I have read about Ruby Bridges were very basic. I am working on finding out more information and this book helped a lot, even though it was directed at children. I would recommend this one over the other books about the desegregation of schools and how Ruby Bridges handled herself in the process.
I picked this up for bookclub. I never would have picked it up otherwise. I never really got into it. The entire time I was reading it, I kept getting like I missed something. I eventually looked up the summary online, and found that I wasn’t missing the major points, but that the book was just wordy.
A lot of the people in bookclub loved it, and it seemed to be the wordiness that they enjoyed, as descriptive as it was. It was a turn off to me. I. Would only recommend this to someone who had a lot of free time and enjoyed poetry. It was not the book for me, though.
This was a book of just illustrations telling a story. It showed a cat and its owner jumping through to another reality. There are two of them there, along with other things, in a different perspective. It was cute and I’m sure children would enjoy it.
I joined Netgalley.com this week. I have three books to read and review for them. As I review more, I can request more books to read and review. I am hoping it works out the way I want it to. The books I have received so far seem very interesting, and I got the badge that I posted above. Time will tell!
I had heard a lot about this book from many people. Most were recommending it for bookclub. I was a little confused by the beginning, but once I put that part aside in my mind, I finally got into the book.
The ending left me hanging a bit, but, then again, it was book one in a series. I don’t know if I liked this enough to continue with the series, so I’ll have to think about it until book 2 lands in my lap, somehow.
