Need to do a proper end-of-the-year wrap up post soon! My goodness, how has 2020 gotten away from me already?? We’re only 3 days in!!
Anyway, have some books:
This might be my new favorite book in the series! Though I was not ready to get that amount of detail about Civil War battlefield amputations in a children’s comic, let alone find out that even cartoony drawings of amputations would make my stomach turn. I can’t wait to take this one out for booktalks!
Also, I kind of want to go to the Grand Canyon now. How have I never been?
The cover is a bit misleading and I’m not quite sure what mooncakes have to do with anything. After reading the third book in the “Witch Boy” series and the new “Okay Witch”, this book fell flat in both the magical friendship romance realm for me.
Third book in the series and going strong. This is an important step for Aster and, again, a great talking point for kids and tweens that are reading the series – should Aster show his powers at the Midwinter festival in front of all the other witches and shapeshifters? Can’t wait to see what happens in book 4!
3.5 stars. I really wanted to love this but if this is the start of a series, I’m here for it. I would love to see more adventures with Tom and Jim. I mean, vanquishing one racist wizarding school probably isn’t a whole lot in the grand scheme of things. I want him to take on the world!
I don’t know what else I can say about this series except that it makes me LOL and I adore it. I needed something light and fun and this collection is solid through out. I love the Halloween arc, with Phoebe getting temporary superpowers, courtesy of Marigold.
Another solid addition to King’s catalog. Full of heart and humor, all the while tackling the very serious subjects of divorce, depression and dealing with emotions.
What did you read in December? Anything that made your best-of-the-year list?
