Our Library Haul, Episode II

As will surprise absolutely no one who knows me, I'm a bit behind on getting these up. :)

But here's our library haul!

It includes, for me:
-"Shadows of Self", by Brandon Sanderson. Read it, loved it, review coming soon.
-"Last Song Before Night", by Ilana C. Myer. Just started it - good so far.
-"Eleanor & Park", by Rainbow Rowell. Unfortunately for me, in requesting "Eleanor & Park", I didn't stop to see what language the book was in. And so, what I received was "Eleanor y Park", not "Eleanor and Park".  I can read Spanish, slowly and painfully and badly, but that wasn't what I had in mind for this novel . . . time to return and re-request!

And, for the children, we got:
-a plethora of Mo Willems, best-beloved author of my early readers, including "A Big Guy Took My Ball", "Let's Go for a Drive", and "The Duckling Gets a Cookie!?"
-"The Search for Delicious", by Natalie Babbitt.
-A quartet of books for my budding scientist: "Key Discoveries in Engineering and Design", "Chemical Engineering and Chain Reactions", "Working in Engineering", and "Air travel: science, technology, and engineering".  (Yes, he actually reads these. If anyone out there is writing science lit for kids, my thanks to you! There really is an appreciative audience it, and that audience lives at my house.)
-"Home" - because we like seeing our mind-candy movies for free, thank you very much.

Have you found anything fun at the library lately? Tell me about it in the comments!

Peace of Christ to you,
Jessica Snell
