What I’m reading this week:
Nightmares! by Jason Segel and Kirsten Miller.  On the Bluebonnet list.  Makes you want to drink coffee and stay up late!
Circus Mirandus by Cassie Beasley.  On the Bluebonnet list.  Like a kid's version of The Night Circus. ***
Eleanor & Park by Rainbox Rowell.  A must read for middle school my opinion.  ****
The War That Saved My Life by Kimberly Brubaker Bradley.  Intense WWII novel.  *****
Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys.  Four-person fictionalized narrative about the worst maritime disaster in history.  *****
