Check, Please! (Book Review)

Comments 2 Standard

Hey y’all, it’s good to see you! Check, Please! was my first read of The Reading Rush 2020. I ended up reading the ebook (via the CloudLibrary app) in my backyard. I only read children’s books and graphic novels as ebooks because full novels are more difficult for me to concentrate with.

This story came highly recommended… by basically everyone. I kept seeing it on blogs, Booktube, and Ally even said I should read it based on one of my favorite emojis.

Two for Tuesday Prompt #1

Comments 5 Standard

Prompt #1 : Two books that taught you something

For this first prompt, I’m throwing it back quite a bit. The first book I chose was March by John Lewis. It’s the book that taught me about the unsung heroes of the civil rights movement.

And the second one is a book I read sooo long ago. I was probably in elementary school or something but I remember loving it. I learned so much about World War II by reading Under the Blood Red Sun by Graham Salisbury.

Are you participating in Two for Tuesday?

What lessons did you learn from books?
