How best to celebrate World Book Day? With books!

World Book Day was this week (March 3), a day dedicated to books and all of the people that go into creating books—like authors, illustrators, editors and publishers. An important day, right?  How did you spend yours?

Obviously, I read.
Remember that book RAVENOUS I told you about? Well, I powered through it this week and it was FANTASTIC. It’s kind of a Hansel & Gretel retelling, featuring a witch that travels in a hut with chicken feet. I know, weird. RAVENOUS is a great follow-up to the author’s first novel, MONSTROUS. I loved it.

Speaking of books I loved, I also picked up a new copy of WONDER by R.J. Pelacio. I’ve read it so many times that the cover looks like it was run over by Grandpa’s tractor. It’s about a 10-year-old boy named August who is born with a terrible facial abnormality. I’d recommend this heartwarming story to ANYone. In fact, I’m going to read it again this weekend. It’s THAT good.

And since I’m a bit behind on the number of books I want to read in 2016, I’m going to the library to see what’s new on the shelves. Do you have any recommendations for me? Leave them in the comments below.

Gotta jet! Have a great weekend.
