Hello everyone! This book meme is called "It's Monday! What Are You Reading?" and basically what you do is share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. It's a great post to organize yourself and to visit and comment on other blogs! This book meme is hosted by The Book Date!
I'm still reading Caraval by Stephanie Garber and so far, it's looking really good, especially once we are getting into the true mystery of Caraval and also look into Donatella's sudden disappearance on the island.
In order to get into the spirit of Halloween, I want to read "Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children" by Ransom Riggs since I had that book on my shelf for awhile now and this would be a great book to read for October! The next book I want to read is "Me Before You" by Jojo Moyes which has been on my shelf for awhile now and I want to read this book before I actually see the movie. The last book I want to read is "The Martian" by Andy Weir since that was the winner of the TBR List book read for September and it's another book I want to read before watching the movie.
I will also be linking up another version of the "It's Monday! What Are You Reading?" meme where you list all the children's books you've read for the week, which is similar to the original meme. This meme is being hosted by Unleashing Readers and Teach Mentor Texts!
Last week, I've managed to buy this rare children's book called "The Gingerbread Man" by Rana Giglio along with artwork by Henrik Drescher. Even though I am familiar with the Gingerbread Man story, this was the first time I had heard about this particular book and it's apparently out of print, so I was lucky enough to even find a copy of this book! I honestly enjoyed this book because I have always been a huge fan of Henrik Drescher's books and I just loved his artwork in this book! I was a bit disappointed that this book was only 8 pages long, but I still enjoyed it!
I just recently got Gregory and the Grimbockle by Melanie Schubert from NetGalley and even though I haven't read this book yet, I'm really excited in checking it out since the premise sounds pretty interesting!
The first book I wanted to read is "A Tale of Two Daddies" by Vanita Oelschlager as I wanted to read more LGBT books for children and this book seems like an enjoyable read! The next book I want to read is "Fish-Boy," which is also by Vanita Oelschlager as I love reading folktales and this book seems really interesting! The last book I want to read is "Unraveling Rose" by Brian Wray since it looks like an adorable book to read through and it also discusses about the dangers of being too obsessive with your looks, which I'm interested in trying out.
