Instead we have Library Loot as we did make it to the library yesterday with Groovy Girl in tow and we found lots of amazing books and DVDs.
Sister's Gimm Books #'s 3 and 4. We read 1, 2 and up to Chapter 5 of 3 but had to return it to her school library but they cut us off and she had to return it on Friday. (of course I get this as I'm a school librarian as well but it still felt a little like getting a book ripped out of my hands) Have you read this series yet? I tried a few years back and didn't get into it on my own but reading it with her has made all the difference.
Newsgirl by Liza Ketchum. (2009) This one's been getting a lot of press but I was drawn to it just from reading the flap. My dad was a newspaper man and I love historical fiction making this a great combination. Sadly, this morning while updating my status on Goodreads I read quite a few ho-hum reviews on this title. How much do other reviews influence your take on a book? I can't say for sure but I feel a little less excitement over this book. I'll forge ahead and form my own opinion.
Groovy Girl's picks from the "NEW" shelf in the library:
Welcome to Italy by Mary Berendes. (2008)
Welcome to Russia by Elma Schemenauer (2008).
Brava, Mimi! by Helga Bansch (2010)
Hide and Squeak by Heather Vogel Frederick. (2011)
Everything but the Horse by Holly Hobbie(2010)
I can easily do a personality profile on Groovy Girl just by her library picks! What do you think? A girl who loves travel, learning, animals and bright covers!
