If you're heading into a long weekend like I am (Easter, anyone?) then you might have a little more time for reading. Some great books I've read lately that take me to a different world:
Across the Universe by Beth Revis. I read all the hype and promos and wow! Were they right! A great story that pulled me into a different time and place. I loved the world building.
Dark Life by Kat Falls. I liked the action and adventure in this book (definitely a fast-paced story) but it was the setting that really intrigued me. The details of living in an underwater city were interesting. So much that I wished there were a few more about how it all worked. But I have a feeling there are more books to come.
Scumble by Ingrid Law. This struck me as such a good example of what I love about middle grade books. A bit of magic, a bit of mystery, a kid with unusual talents. I actually didn't like Ingrid Law's Savvy that much, even though it got great reviews, but I really enjoyed this one! [Maybe I'll have to read Savvy again.]
By the way, I read these the old-fashioned way, on paper. I'm not sure which is better for the earth, paper or digital? Anyone know?
Happy Earth Day and Happy Easter, if you're celebrating.
