Bookworm Buzz

I have been continuing to read as many of the latest and greatest books that have been published in children's literature and want to share my Goodreads reviews with all of you.
 In addition, I have exciting news to share from the world of Graphic Novels, one of my favorite genres; I am going to be participating in a special internet reading program for teachers this October called the #GNCelebration.  It is similar to the #Picturebook10for10 program that I participate in during August, but this one will be all about Graphic Novels!  My friends, Mrs. Landrigan and Mrs. Mulligan will be co-hosting the event and I am so excited to join them.  Be looking for my posts on Thursdays in October.  But until then, enjoy these latest reviews!
