Bookworm Buzz

Dear Reader,
I know that I said that I was going to wait to read True..Sort of, by Katherine Hannigan while I am in Maine this weekend, but I couldn't. I'm so glad I didn't, it is DEFINITELY one of the best books that I have read this year. I hope that it will be in the running for the Newberry Award because it deserves to be. This book will appeal to boys AND girls, and is rich in character development, plot and theme. I couldn't put it down! Click on the link above to read a quick review of the book. If your parents let you, you can search for a YouTube video in which Katherine Hannigan discusses this new book. Dare I say it is better than Ida B?Also, I have read Dragonbreath, by Ursula Vernon. This is the story of a dragon and his friend iguana. Dragonbreath is a series, and Luke is devouring the books!
On Tuesday, Liv and I will be going to Wellesley Books to meet Michelle Ray, author of Falling for Hamlet. This is a book for my older friends. It is always fun to meet an author and support an independent bookstore. Also, Lincoln Pierce, the author of the Big Nate books will also be appearing at this bookstore on Friday, September 9th, at 4:00 p.m. I am hoping to make it to this event also. Click on the Big Nate gadget to the right to read today's comic. It's about Cheese Doodles. I love Cheese doodles, do you? What is your favorite brand? Mine are Wise Cheese Doodles, but I also love All Natural Cheese Doodles by Lays.

Speaking of Liv, be looking for Bookworm Buzz, Special Edition, in the upcoming weeks. Liv is a voracious reader, and she will be blogging about some of her favorite books and the books that she has been reading this summer. Luke may even get in on the action!
Stay Tuned Reader,
Love, Ms. W

  1. Wow Mrs. Williams! Your reading is amazing! At your suggestion, I got True...Sort of at Barnes and Noble, and I'm excited to read it this week. I hope I love it as much as you did!
